Donald Trump and Mike Pence take their oaths as president and vice president of the United States on January 20, in Washington D.C. "I know this job makes you an officer of the senate, but you, Mike Pence, will always be a part of the people's house". All over the world, they're talking about it.
Hundreds of queer people stormed the streets surrounding Vice President-elect Mike Pence's home last night to engage in a classically queer form of resistance: dancing.
"To the extent that he is known both in IN and nationwide, he was known as a stalwart, social conservative within the congress, and that's a group that the president will need", said Bennion.
However, eagle-eyed Twitter user Shauna tweeted this, revealing a similar moment from a slightly different camera angle.
"We are here tonight to send a clear message to Daddy Pence that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate in our country", said one organizer, Firas Nasr, as he rallied the dancers, according to CNN. Barack Obama transferred his power over to the 70-year-old on January 20, when Trump and his VP, Mike Pence, took their oaths of office in front of the entire nation.
"I'm not depressed. I'm not sad".
"He really will stick by his guns for as long as possible to push and push and push until there's no other way...that actually seems to me to be similar to Donald Trump", said Bennion.
Avengers star Mark Ruffalo was also present for protests on Thursday and said he feels the protests reflect the American values of inclusively and diversity.
The ceremony concludes and President Trump and Vice-President Pence will bid farewell to the Obamas and the Bidens.
