So in catching up this month, I'm just adding things I posted to Facebook on or around Inauguration Day. . .
A little pre-election bluster. But it's a lie. Surprise!
Trump bragged about incredible photos of bikers coming to his inauguration. The photos are fake.
There is no evidence that record numbers of Trump supporters will turn out for the inauguration. D.C.’s Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is expecting anywhere between 800,000 to 900,000 people to attend the swearing-in ceremony and the parade. In comparison, an estimated 1.8 million people attended President Barack Obama’s first inauguration. And ticket scalpers are reportedly having a difficult time selling tickets to Trump’s ceremony.
We all remember this fabulous quote, explained away as just locker room talk by his current wife, Republican Congressmen and Trump supporters:

Meanwhile in the real and actual news. . .
Seems he wanted tanks and missile launchers, but the request was denied because he's not yet dictator and these things would ruin the roads. They gave him planes though. Fab.
During the preparation for Friday’s transfer-of-power, a member of Trump’s transition team floated the idea of including tanks and missile launchers in the inaugural parade, a source involved in inaugural planning told The Huffington Post. “They were legit thinking Red Square/North Korea-style parade,” the source said, referring to massive military parades in Moscow and Pyongyang, typically seen as an aggressive display of muscle-flexing.
