I’m holding my breath. And I feel quite tearful!

That`s the very reason i`m NOT watching it tidyskatemum.

I’ m watching it ......so moving . Great future ahead for America and the world !!

Am so happy Trump has gone. Kamala Harris is amazing. Nice to see America has joined the world again, it's been a long 4 years. Congratulations and lots of luck to President Biden and his team.

Me too. I’m hoping it’s a brave new dawn, not just for America but for the whole world. Never felt so emotional at an inauguration before. Well done America! (Just wish the women involved wore good sensible shoes though: worried that they’ll trip over)

Very strange choice of music and singers for what I presume is a solemn occasion.

Lady Gaga was AWESOME

At least their hair is moving in the breeze. I keep thinking that if this was Margaret Thatcher, her hair would have stayed solid throughout.

I know how you feel! Fingers X'd the Crazies aren't in evidence but, thing is, they've swallowed DT's 'stolen' lie....

I agree. Awful choices.

That’s Biden sworn in now.

Lady Gaga was AWESOME

When she turned to the flag 🤩 Wow.

Isn't it odd how hats aren't worn? It's a cold day over there!

MayBee70 Wed 20-Jan-21 16:57:39

And everyone is wearing a mask.....

The antithesis of Trump!

What's strange about the National Anthem and 'This land is your land, this land is my land'?

Brilliant. The wires are hot in our little international family What's App group.

I thought the music was wonderful. Lady Gaga is a powerful singer and her passion and heart came through clearly. And Jennifer Lopez singing the Woody Guthrie iconic song made the point about being one nation.

Lady Gaga was fabulous.

Well we do things differently here don't we?

On Thursday we have an election - the next day the removal van is at 10 Downing Street and that's it! grin

Good speech, Mr President.

Smileless2012 Wed 20-Jan-21 17:14:35

A great speech. Well done President Biden and good luck.
