FYI to everyone: I loathe and despise him as much as you do, but the fact is that when the 20th of January falls on a Sunday, the swearing in occurs privately in the WH. There is historic precedent, Zero didn’t just make it up.
Has a NEW President ever been sworn in on a Sunday, and then again on Monday?
FYI, he has a public office. By virtue of this, every step is open to public purview. Bath House Barry has the highest PUBLIC office in the land.
I do not believe this is correct. These ceremonies have been quite public indeed ever since the first one (George Washington). I can only think of one case where it was done in private (World War 1, Woodrow Wilson’s second term). Can you think of another?
indeed, these events quickly adopted every new technological means to make them even more public...
March 1921 Harding ... loudspeakers
March 1925 Coolidge... national radio broadcast
March 1929 Hoover .... national talking newsreels
January 1949 Truman ... television
“There is historic precedent, Zero didnt just make it up.”
But, he’s not allowing press in there - can you say Koran and including his Muslim name, “Hussein” that he doesn’t use with the American public.
He had a private one last time, too, and that was the “real” one - can you say Koran and including his Muslim name, “Hussein” that he doesn’t usse with the American public.
See, TWO private swearings in.
