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.
Ellen Page got into a heated debate with a preacher over homosexuality ... and it all went down as chaos was building around them on the streets of Washington, D.C.
Ellen's in town for some inaugural events -- including the Women's March on Saturday -- but Friday outside the National Press Building she ended up going toe-to-toe, verbally, with a man of the cloth.
He labeled homosexuality "demonic," but Ellen kept her cool. She, at least, is there for peaceful debate.
Well played, Ellen.
Obama winces and arguably scoffs as Trump says the course of our nation will change from weakness to greatness.
After the speech, you see Obama perfunctorily tell Trump, "Good job," but Michelle cannot hide her contempt.
Twitter made the switch almost immediately after Trump was sworn in as the 45th Prez. Meanwhile, the Obamas are now @POTUS44 and @FLOTUS44.
This appears to be the first time in history Twitter's done this. Tweeting wasn't nearly as widespread in 2009, and @POTUS wasn't created until 2015.
Peaceful transition ... on social media. Just as the forefathers wanted it.
Donald Trump was sworn in Friday as the 45th President of the United States at the U.S. Capitol.
The oath itself went off without a hitch ... however, Prez Trump's speech -- filled with images of an America in ruins -- seemed to rub the Obamas the wrong way. It was written all over their faces.
As for 16-year-old Jackie Evancho's 'Star Spangled Banner' -- flawless.
Attendance wasn't quite the record-setter the new POTUS hoped it would be. Looks like Barack gets to hold on to his 2009 record ... which was estimated to be about 2 million.
Anti-Trump protests are already getting violent -- we got this crazy video of a fight breaking out on a Washington, D.C. street, and a woman was assaulted ... just one block from the inauguration.
It's unclear what sparked the conflict, but it appears some Trump protesters pissed off a group of men walking past them ... then all hell broke loose. Radio host Alex Jones was nearby and shouted for cops as one of the men hit a female protester.
Officers responded quickly, but it's obvious it's going to be a tense day in Washington. We're already seeing roving groups of masked people destroying property.
Donald Trump's inauguration parade may encounter some secondhand weed smoke since more than 4,000 joints will spark up at once just a few miles away.
Pro-weed group org DCMJ is handing out upwards of 4,200 free joints to the public Friday at DuPont Circle -- about 3 miles away from the US Capitol, where Trump will be sworn in.
The ceremony will fire up 4 minutes and 20 seconds into Trump's Presidency.
The point of the rally ... to advocate for federal legalization of weed.
Kellyanne Conway is wearing what she describes as "Trump Revolutionary Wear" to the inauguration.
Kellyanne, who's celebrating her 50th birthday today, got lots of attention ... in fact, as much as anyone, for the $3,600 Gucci wool a-line coat.
Like Trump says, she can be a real Nutcracker.
The song for Donald Trump's first dance as President of the United States will be to "My Way" ... and since Sinatra is no longer available, it will take 3 to fill his shoes.
Trump and Melania will dance to the song, performed by Erin Boheme, Nickie Conley and Jason Eskridge ... all singers out of Nashville.
Anka actually changed the lyrics and stylized the song for Trump years ago and sang it 3 times during events at Mar-a-Lago. But Erin tells us she and the other 2 will do the OG Sinatra version.
It's a tradition before the swearing in that the 2 couples talk over coffee at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The tradition was started in 2009, when Michelle Obama gave Laura Bush a present.
Melania Trump was at once modern and a throwback as she emerged from Blair House on Inauguration Day ... turns out most First Ladies in modern times had the same idea.
Melania's powder blue dress was in the same family as the coat Jackie Kennedy wore 56 years ago to the day.
There are a couple of First Ladies who broke from the pack. Take a guess, and check it out.
Baldwin, who famously mocks Trump on "Saturday Night Live," was front and center at an anti-Trump rally in The Big Apple. He's certainly not refusing to accept the reality, but he's also clear ... he feels there's a missing "humanistic" chip in Trump's DNA, so New Yorkers need to rally together to protect themselves.
We got Cher at an anti-Trump rally in NYC Thursday night -- where other celebs like Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro and Mark Ruffalo came out in force. It's clear she's still very much against Trump, but still wants him to deliver for those in the country hurting the most.
What she's talking about here was Obama's thing in 2008, but she's thinking Trump should adopt it too.
Donald Trump, his Veep, his family and Trump loyalists put on their Sunday best for some fancy Thursday soirees.
The Prez-elect hit up a black tie dinner at Union Station in D.C., and then moved to the 2017 Indiana Inaugural Ball just down the road.
We got the 39th President of the U.S. at the Reagan Airport making his way to the inauguration festivities, and along with some advice for Trump ... he extends a pretty sweet invitation to President Obama for his retirement days.
But, all of that pales in comparison to Carter's passion for peanut butter -- the former prez dishes on how to properly chow down on PB. Hint ... there's more to work with than jelly.
Police and anti-Donald Trump protesters are clashing in a rally that began outside the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C.
The protest started at the hotel, and then marched through D.C. to the National Press Club several blocks away. Once there ... pepper spray was fired into the crowd, and protesters started trying to break through police lines.
At one point, a Trump supporter was seen being punched multiple times in the head by masked protesters.
At least one protester has been bloodied. We have photographers right in the middle of the chaos.
