Reasonable to take precautions, unlike Trump’s monster truck rallies.

Is Trump going to add to his list of accomplishments as president by not attending Biden’s inauguration? That would go nicely along with having lost the electoral vote, having been impeached, having had COVID, presiding while tens of thousands of Americans died due to having politicized a pandemic.

while complying with COVID-19 protocols.

Complying with Covid19 protocols! Hats off to president-elect Biden for taking this approach, one 180 degrees opposite from his predecessor who's still spreading the virus as he cavorts around the country trying to scam his followers into giving him and his syndicate even more money. 

And to make things worse, Trump’s admin are holding their own super-spreader events to mark the end of the Trump regime.

Trump’s backers LOL knowing their Trump’s leaving behind problems they think (?) they can blame on Biden.

Unfortunately, Trump will be enjoying this so much. Because the Biden team is doing the right thing and allowing medical and scientific professionals make decisions, the number of people allowed to view the inauguration will be low. Trump will then crow how "Sleepy Joe" had such low numbers, nothing like the one billion who attended his inauguration.

Eagerly await the next four years to undo the severe damage done both nationally and internationally.

Putting the people's health above patting the ego

Well, as John says, it's easy if you try. After all, millions of folks have imagined there's no pandemic.

Huh!?! The oath of office is usually taken outside!!

Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump...

Sensible precautions to hold this outside, considering how the Rose Garden function led to amputations for the White House Director of Security Crede Bailey.

great isnt it , the best part is hes done it without having to insult anybody, thats how the best smackdowns are done. bringing out all the opposition saltiness without even having to be vindictive. lol

Another leftist media attempt to make this old do-nothing politician who literally has done nothing his whole corrupt life look like something special. Boggles the mind that people actually fall for these propaganda hit 'stories'

Taking the oath outside is nothing new. It's been done many times by many presidents.

But they intentionally try to sensationalize it. Unbelievable.

very mixed feelings to be exact.

Finally a President who cares for the safety of others!!!

Trump said, “I don't want to talk about that.”

And the soon to be ex-President , still throwing tantrums!!!

Biden's call for unity has, unfortunately, been ignored by his supporters who mock their follow Americans who voted for Trump and are not reaching out a hand of conciliation. One can only predict that the deep political divisions in America will widen over the next 4 years.

There are not 70,000,000 racists in America. Even if they are all "uneducated rubes" deriding them and laughing at their concerns is not a positive step ahead.

and when has Biden attacked or indsulted or threatened to withold federal funding to any of Trump supporters, hes trying to bring them together, I could start listing all the times Trump has been insulting to anybody that doesnt agree with him, but Im afraid this thread wont have enough space
