He’s not afraid. He means business. Jeb, Marco, even Christie would have been polite.
From the Washington Examiner:
President Trump delivered a stinging rebuke to the Washington political establishment in his inaugural address on Friday, as establishment leaders sat all around him.
“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost,” he declared.
As former President Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, his vanquished general election rival Hillary Clinton and other political luminaries looked on, Trump said, “we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.”
The lines received applause from the Trump supporters who gathered to see him sworn in while many of the dignitaries on the dais sat stone-faced.
