He is finally gone. The nightmare has come to its fitful end. A bunch of trump elite criminals pardoned in the shroud of night. The Golden Toilet Presidency is over. A turd is a turd no matter where it lays.

Sooooo much work to do. But TODAY I want to celebrate. And pray. And revel in our tremendous power (even against all odds) to make history happen.

Do not let the white supremacy of the last presidency outshine the HISTORIC achievements of @VP Kamala Harris!

The Presidential Inaugural Committee previously announced “America United” as the theme of the day, explaining on their website, “At a time of unprecedented crisis and deep divisions, America United reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country together, and creates a path to a brighter future.”
In Biden’s speech in Delaware in November, he urged unity, calling for an end to “partisan warfare.”
“The purpose of our politics isn’t to wage total and unrelenting war. It’s to solve problems,” he said. “We may be opponents, but we’re not enemies. We’re Americans.”
