Look at that crowd, everyone was filled with love and hope - none with hate.
That’s what you call the biggest crowd in inauguration history, Donald. 😂
Sorry, Joe, but we can’t move on without punishing Donald

Whoever thought Trump would come after this wonderful man? Like Obama, Biden will have to clean up the disaster of another failed GOP administration.

One of the most loved presidents,
Back when presidents fought each other over political ideals but there was no doubt they had America's best interest in mind. When the orange man fights for something, it's too obvious he is fighting for himself.

2009: breaking barriers for President
2021: for Vice-president
The high hopes. A real President, eloquent, articulate, intelligent, and gracious. The mess 45 left is gagging. We the people need to “ask not what our country can do for us, but what we can do for our country”. Biden is no Kennedy, no Obama, but praise god not the one whom we will never mention. Reaffirm U.S. is great, we earned it and we’ll stand strong behind it. Never a tinpot creep to taint our legacy. Biden needs us.
I remember when I was in middle school and they made us go into the auditorium it was like a dam movie. Good memories

That is still the Country I want to live in, that kind of Country my kids deserve to have! How short our memory is. But I still have faith.
Imagine, two of the people who died in the Capitol riot were there rooting for Obama after voting for him. How did they get radicalized to hate him and half the country?
