Last week the United States swore its 46th president into office. Even during a pandemic, a big deal was made by event planners, celebrating a new accomplishment by our latest Commander in Chief. No matter how you feel about current events, there’s no denying that some pretty awesome memes came into existence from the inauguration itself.
