Jan 20, 2021 Biden-Harris Presidential Inauguration - Anandabazar Patrika Coverage

As of August 27, 2020, Donald Trump had lied 22,247 times in 1,316 days. After fairly and squarely losing to Joe Biden in the most secure presidential election in American history, Trump started to average 50 lies a day overwhelming those who had been attempting to disseminate truth for the last four years. Trump's biggest fraudulent and evidence-free claims of a stolen election were believed by millions of Americans, resulting in the shameful spectacle on January 6, 2021 of an attempted insurrection to sabotage democracy in the United States by a violent mob incited by Trump. Domestic terrorism was on full display in the US Capitol, which I had attempted to report also in Anadabazar Patrika

It seems Trump's biggest asset is an uncanny ability to fool almost half the country all the time. A champion con-artist, he instinctively knows where to drive the biggest wedges to widen racial cracks that have always existed in the United States, feeding into white rage in a fast-changing country where the most accomplished people live in cultural and ethnic melting pots in diverse 21st-century post-industrial urban economies driven by data sciences, bleeding-edge research and development in technology services. It is unfortunate nearly 72 million people bought into the idea of coastal "elites" stealing America after endless repetition of provocative quotes on Fox news, and later obscure television channels like OANN and NewsMax which saw jumps in viewership when even Fox news turned out to be lacking in the degree of dissemination of ridiculous conspiracy theories resulting in socially-engineered radicalization of the kind long practiced by global terrorist organizations.

Psychologically damaged, devoid of decency and incapable of strength and maturity to invite the incoming President and Vice-President elected by the people to the White House and accompanying them to their inauguration, Trump designed a grand farewell of himself by himself, directing the military to give him a 21-gun salute and play "Hail to the Chief." He left hours before the incoming President and Vice-President were sworn in, to take advantage of taxpayer-funded Airforce One to fly him out without having to request use of the aircraft from the new administration as is the norm. He commanded the Airforce One to fly low over his private property, and then landing at his private residence, the outgoing single-term twice-impeached 45th President of the United States went around in a motorcade driving slowly basking in the glory of crowds holding up signs like "Fuck Biden". In the meanwhile, the 46th President of the United States was being sworn in in the presence of the 42nd, 43rd and 44th Presidents of the United States in a cheerful ceremony broadcast live across the world. Ironically, the absence of the misfit 45th was received with an overarching sense of relief - it was indeed a good thing Trump was not there for the inauguration.

Here is my report in the Anandabazar of the historic events of January 20, 2021 where America breathed a sigh of relief and welcomed the first woman Vice President of the United States, a woman who is also not white.
