The “official” swearing in is supposed to be done by the SCOTUS Chief Justice—aka Red Roberts who pissed on the US Constitution, stabbing America in the back and empowering the Obama tyranny.

Special place in Hell for that nefarious bastard.

There’s not a legal requirement for the CJOTUS to do it, but I would be surprised if it were not Roberts.

The only time it hasn’t been done by the CJOTUS is 1789, 1793 and then to fill a vacancy: 1841, 1850, 1881 (although Chet Arthur was sworn in by the CJOTUS two days later), 1901, 1923, and 1963.

Andrew Johnson, Truman, and Ford were all sworn in by the CJOTUS.
