Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017 (‘Twilight’s last gleaming’)

In these United States of America, a man can blatantly lie, insult the American military and intelligence community, publicly disrespect and question the legitimacy of its sitting president, disparage and objectify women, demean African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Muslims, Jews, gays, immigrants, refugees and the disabled, repeatedly malign the residents of our inner cities, sophomorically criticize journalists and media organizations, ally himself with, and defend a foreign government and historic arch-enemy of Democracy, chide the voting process and lose a national election by three million popular votes, be a low-rated reality TV show host, found a fake university, be accused of multiple incidences of sexual assault and still be inaugurated as president and chief executive officer of the nation, commander in chief of its powerful armed forces and holder of the launch codes of its nuclear weapons arsenal.

All he needs, is enough money to pay for it.
