Yesterday was a great day for President Donald J. Trump. Former President Barack Obama? Not so much.
After a farewell address dripping with self-congratulations, Obama arrived at Trump’s inauguration all smiles, likely expecting a tearful last homage from the adoring crowd.
Perhaps he even heard the low, barely audible collective chant of the crowd starting to swell as he grinned, laughed and began to greet the other former presidents in attendance.
Sadly, that was only the whisper of his over-inflated ego. The crowd was chanting, but it wasn’t his name on their lips. See the video here:
As the swell became a tsunami, there was no mistaking its content. “Trump! Trump! Trump!”, the crowd roared.
As Michelle Obama stood rigid and stone-faced, Obama turned his back against the crowd to seek out other hands to shake.
