Just as an aside watch an evening unfold in Washington DC

Okay. The man, his wife, and his family come to Washington in a vast convoy of sleek black SUVs. He stays at his eponymous hotel. Then... he speaks off the cuff from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Then... The Battle Hymn of the Republic is sung. Then... the Fireworks....

Love him or hate him, when it comes to Trump you can only say, "This man has really run the table."

You're so very right Gerard. When 81 year old Sam Moore sang "God Bless America," how could you not tear up, just a little? Then the closing with the fireworks and the singing of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Anybody who cares, even grudgingly, about this country, had to have a stirring in their heart.
The enthusiasm I've seen so far is heartening also. Even John Stossel is enthusiastic, and he hates Trump. We may be seeing a new American renaissance. God knows we deserve it.

Powerful visuals. The man,and his family,are very proud and grateful to be Americans. The political Clown Parade of leftists screeching and wearing pussyhats are sad and irrelevant.

His red meat inaugural speech will give the meatheads the meat sweats.
