Feel it’s important to cover the US presidential election as it’s such an important day in the history of the world. To be fair there’s not much else to think about other than COVID just now.
This will be the first inauguration where the former President will not be in attendance. Our 45th President Trump is currently winging his way to Florida showing a total lack of respect that we’ve come to expect from him. (now I must say here again that I have good friends who support Trump so these are purely my opinions and it does not make me love them any less!)
Trump says he will be back…. We have to wait and see what happens. He’s been impeached again and will have to stand trial in the Senate for inciting crowds to descend on the Senate building at the start of January. He’s done so many bad things that he needs to face punishment. We’ve been watching the Rise of Hitler…. not much fun but VERY interesting and the similarities to the rise of Donald Trump are terrifying.
Anyway…. I will move on for now. I’m not in the best headspace today but that’s ok. These are tough times.
I also popped to the Co-op in Beith and we have some pizza and snacks so we can sit and watch the Inauguration. These photos are all taken from the tv as we watching it live.
Lady Gaga sang the Star Spangled Banner. Wow. I cried…. ok so I’m an emotional wreck today but that was something else. She was amazing.
Then Jennifer Lopez sang and yup again a few tears. They should be so proud of their performances.
“We will get through this together”
“America had been tested and we’ve come out stronger for it”
Says it all.
History made today and we were very lucky to be able to watch it and be a part of it. And not one mention of the last one by name.
Tomorrow is day 300 of COVID-19 in the UK. 300 days since Craig and I were first “locked-down” so better getting planning a biggie…. from Scotland’s second lockdown.
Stay safe everyone 🇺🇸🏴🇺🇸
