As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Takes Office Sounding Populist Theme

The Obama presidency, after inflicting so much damage on our nation, is finally over. A new president has come to power.

From the Washington Examiner:

Donald J. Trump, the billionaire real estate magnate and reality show star from Queens whose presidential candidacy was once derided as a joke, was sworn in Friday as the 45th president.

In a sixteen minute address — remarkably short for Trump — the incoming president replicated the themes of his candidacy, saying he would value average Americans over Washington, bring back jobs, put “America first,” and in doing so, “make America great again.”

“We are transferring power from Washington DC, and giving it back to you, the people,” Trump said. “Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth,” he said. “That all changes starting right here, and right now. Because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you.”

As part of his “America first” agenda, Trump indicated he would make other countries pay for their defense and ensure that trade benefits America, a stance some have taken to be protectionist.

“We will follow two simple rules: buy American, and hire American,” Trump said. “Every decision on trade, on taxes, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers, and American families.”

  1. End Of An Error. Beginning Of A New Day.
    I cannot help but compare the generic “hope and change” of Barack Obama to the more specific words of DJT.

  2. Obama has left the building!!!

    Happy days are here again
    The skies above are clear again
    Sing a song of cheer again
    HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you Dear Lord for hearing our prayers.

  3. Was that Aunt Esther who left the building with Barry? What a dour, sour face. So much for all of her countless plastic surgeries, proof positive that beauty emanates from the soul.

  4. Not to ruin the good mood and waste any more time on these losers, but I’m wondering if anyone saw this. I knew Malia Obama had to be traveling somewhere last fall when she wasn’t around during Thanksgiving. It turns out she was on a secret three month trip to Peru and Bolivia. I’d love to know how much this cost the taxpayers:

    Also, their other daughter (at 15) had to take one last freebie weekend last weekend by going away to Miami with friends:

    • Since they can do so much traveling, shouldn’t they have been at the inauguration events. It is history, no matter which side of politics you are on. This country has given those ingrates so much!

      • I live in a sanctuary city, Santa Fe, NM. Go Trump. With hold those federal funds. If the citizens of Santa Fe don’t like it, vote with your head and not your genitals next time.
        Oh, did I mention, our mayor, Javier Gonzalez, is an out-of-the-closet homosexual.

        • The Tucson police chief was chosen cuz he’s an out of the closet fag too. Yeah, we’re a sanctuary city too. It sucks, the city clownsil has water stations and cell towers in the southern desert so the illegals can hydrate and call their “family” that’s already here.
          Spit.

      • I was wondering why the Obama daughters weren’t there today. I checked and the Bush daughters were at Obummer’s Inauguration in 2009, and Chelsea Clinton was at George W. Bush’s inauguration in 2001.

        The Obama daughters should have been there.

    • Three months!!! Just remembered what the Mooch said when the kids were not present for the Christmas tree delivery – “They’re still sleeping”! Yeah, sure….

      • Exactly. I knew she was lying that day. Also, a few days before that when Obummer did the turkey pardon with Moooch’s two little nephews. I knew he did that to distract from the fact that Malia was away traveling somewhere. He couldn’t have done it with just Sasha so he used the nephews and said something about the girls being over it.

    • She is not an unattractive girl, but she seems to have her m other’s frame,whereas Malia is tall and thin like her father. And that is the way they have chosen to pair up as a family Sasha with Michelle and Malia with her father. That is some times awkward imo. Anyway….I don’t care what the girls do, but I do think it was short sighted thinking — to miss what is a historical event. Or perhaps the family is in denial, and daddy said they were just moving down the road a bit. Who knows.
