Americans today celebrated the inauguration in a variety of ways, from fireworks and flag waving, to suicide attempts, to my own preference of watching the swearing in ceremony while playing old Twilight Zone episodes in the background so Rod Serling could kinda narrate everything.
On this week’s episode of Mostly Weekly we decided to tackle the many intricate traditions behind the inauguration, from a Supreme Court justice throwing a baseball to the moment where we dunk the new president in the Potomac to see if he floats or not.
This episode is on the absurd side of political satire. I didn’t really feel like making a pointed one just now. So whether you’re weeping and drunk, or cheering and drunk, you’ll probably enjoy it. We’ll get back to vociferous stuff shortly.
