With the Inauguration just hours away, Donald Trump is en route to Washington, D.C.
- He'll hold meetings this morning, then spend the afternoon on the phone getting the White House Gas, Electricity and Cable transferred over to his name.
Meanwhile the Obamas are doing what most families do the day before they move...
- Taking sentimental snapshots around the house and deciding whether or not to take the washer and dryer they promised to leave during the Closing.
Donald Trump has been urged to dance with Caitlyn Jenner, who is a Republican, at his Inaugural Ball on Friday night to prove that he is in touch with America's LGBT community.
- I think it's safe to assume that during the dance, the new President won't try to grab Caitlyn's private parts.
In keeping with tradition, President Obama will leave a letter of advice for the incoming President in the desk in the Oval Office.
- Sources say Obama wrote his letter months ago, and it starts out "Dear, Hillary..."
A NY Attorney is calling for President Obama to pardon Hillary Clinton so she can't be charged under the Trump Administration for use of the Private Email Server...but added it's "sideways" for anyone to think accepting a pardon is admitting guilt.
- I beg your pardon???
- Hillary wasn't available for comment as she was busy rehearsing for her upcoming gig on "Dancing With The Stars".
Michael Moore has organized a protest on the sidewalk outside Trump Tower in NYC today.
- He was going to hold the protest in D.C., but he wanted to make sure there would be plenty of Hot Dog and Giant Soft Pretzel Carts nearby.
On a serious note...
No matter how you feel about the incoming administration - or the outgoing one - I hope that we experience a safe and peaceful transition of power tomorrow, and in the weeks and months to come. Yes, we have differences. Yes, we look at things from a wide variety of vantage points. And yes, this has been a tumultuous and emotional time in our History.
But first and foremost, we are Americans. This is not the first time our citizenry has been divided, nor is it the first time our nation has faced seemingly insurmountable challenges both at home and around the world. But it's time to do what we have done since 1776 - Put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. Together. Shoulder to Shoulder. America is, and always will be, a work in progress. By definition, that makes us "imperfect". But our best hope for making positive progress begins with us being respectful of each other's opinions.
Perhaps it was times like these that inspired our insightful forefathers (and foremothers!) to name this great land "The UNITED States of America".
Have a great day, I'll see you back here tomorrow, and God Bless America.
