"Trump Referred To Himself Only 3 Times During Speech; We 45 Times; You 24 Times"

So much, for people calling Trump a "narcissist".

My first impression of the inaugural was, in case anyone missed her, Melania is better looking than Caroline Kennedy. Other than that, there was a strong resemblance to the 1961 inauguration. Both were historic events.

For some reason, many of my favorite websites have become clogged today. The only live coverage of the event was choppy, leaving out parts. Even the Fox News transcript of the speech left out Trump's mention of God and of the Bible. Fortune reported it. Here it is:

"The bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

(APPLAUSE)

"There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God."

(APPLAUSE)

Funny, how Fox missed that.
