Yes, I’ll be watching and reporting what’s going on in the comments. Join me, if you’re watching.
I watched last night and was completely embarrassed for our country. The world thinks we’re idiots. Yep, he’s still in campaign mode, although I think it’s really just Donald mode. Last night he was still on about his grievances. I especially loved his spin on crowd size last night. He said he was so surprised that so many people showed up for this little concert, implying that this was an impromptu event that wasn’t advertised/scheduled.
I can’t imagine what his inauguration speech will sound like. (Vox has a bingo card for the event.) Yesterday, I wrote a comment of what I expected:
There’s no way Trump stays on script during his inaugural address. No flippin’ way.
My bet is that his first off-script remark will be about crowd size and how Yuge it is. His second will be about how he’s the winner and the haters lost. His third will be about how his DC hotel is filled to capacity and how luxurious it is and how he’s the greatest negotiator ever!
So… if you’re watching today, add your thoughts to the comments. I’ll probably start drinking early. Vodka seems appropriate.
