Donald Trump's Inaugural Parade Underway Amid Violent Protests Nearby

Donald Trump made the almost 2 mile-long trek down Pennsylvania Avenue for his inaugural parade, as protests were breaking out just blocks away.

The Prez and First Lady remained in their limo for much of the Inaugural Parade -- from the Capitol to the White House -- but did opt to walk a few blocks of the route ... flanked by Secret Service.

Once outside their new home, they kicked back to view the rest of the show. Considering the violence that went on in Washington, D.C. today ... the parade was pretty damn smooth.
