    Biden 2021 - "Listen, Jack."

    since there won't be a Biden thread until January I'll put this here.

    Earmarking this because I thought it'd be a good first post for the Biden 2021 thread. Coming January 1st.

    Whoops on Jan 1st.

    Anyway, Merrick Garland is going to be his AG so that’s kind of a full circle situation.

    Inauguration Day:

    National Anthem by Lady Gaga
    Poetry Reading by Amanda Gorman
    Musical Performance by JLo

    I’d be happy for Rebecca Black to sing “Friday”. Just glad it’s happening.

    Gaga and Joe have been friends for a while, and she's a huge Biden supporter.

    Amanda Gorman is the U.S. Youth Poet Laureate.






    Remember who the entertainment was for Trump's inaugural? A bunch of people nobody ever heard of, and Jackie Evancho sang the National Anthem?


    Meanwhile, this was Obama's first inaugural:

    I’m still stunned and excited about tomorrow.

    We have bubbly and snacks ready. Cinnamon rolls and mimosas in the morning.

    Omg we are going to have a woman VP (a black woman! an Indian woman!) OMG!!!

    And Trump is going out in a flaming pile of crap.

    I'm watching Rachel Maddow, and I feel like crying (so far, covering the COVID memorial and VP Harris reading letters from children).
    I'm probably going to wake up tomorrow and take the stress CBD oil gummies until noon. I think work will be blocked out for most of the day.

    I actually have my weekly review with a trainee at 10:30, and I'm not sure how the two of us will not be talking about this. She's a POC and was appalled at the Jan 6th attack compared to the BLM protests. I blocked out a full hour, just so we can emotionally data dump before tackling some work.

    I'm just praying to all the gods it's over...

    This Canadian is hoping that everything can go smooth tomorrow. I have a feeling I'll have to be a bit stoned to really let this sink in. Congratulations, all, let's look to the future!

    Also, unlimited respect and pride for Ms. Harris. Just like Obama, this is a memorable moment.

    I am over $120,000 in student debt, with more to come (two more semesters left) . One of my big dreams with this admin is to get not just $10,000 relief, but $50,000. As a teacher, I don't make much. I'd be able to live peacefully.

    today is a historic day. I will be gladly watching (remotely) with my class.

    Don't think I saw this on any of the other threads but New Radicals are reuniting after 22 years to perform at the inauguration today.

    I thought that Biden's inauguration speech was very good.

    I am not a religious man, but Reverend Beaman's words are striking.

    Interesting note, here:

    Biden is the 2nd Catholic President in U.S. history.

    The first was JFK.

    G and I were raised Catholic (so were all of our closest friends). Today is like: CATHOLICS, REPRESENT!!! Lol


    Meanwhile, Amanda Gorman was BRILLIANT, omg.

    *raises hand* Catholic too. My mother knew Biden was Catholic before I did. She's watching the inauguration and I kid you not, she told me she was all teary eye when he was taking his oath. Not because he's Catholic but because my mother, a 79 years old Québécoise, was terrified of what Trump would do. That's how bad things were.

    Also: apparently, the exiting moron left a letter for President Biden. If the letter says something other than "Sleepy Joe, I won and you know it you thief. Fuck you.", Trump didn't write it; he copied what someone else has written.

    Biden said the letter was very “generous.” He won’t disclose the contents until he talks with Trump to see if it’s okay, first.

    The celebration tonight is going to be off the hook!

    Sen. Blunt and Sen. Klobuchar and all involved in the inauguration team have done a fantastic job in planning this! Whomever designed it is brilliant. It doesn’t feel like anything is missing; sure, it’s a little weird, and sure we are all worried about safety. But it all came together brilliantly, with some bipartisan participation, and the whole day has been wonderful and tonight should be great, too.

    Watching Biden talk to his new staff, now, before swearing them in.

    She was a very good speaker, I thought. I liked her a lot.

    Anyway, do you think Trump will reveal his healthcare plan in the next two weeks?

    How Kevin McCarthy and McConell can stand up there and hand out ceremonial gifts and shower praise upon Biden is beyond me.
