Providing much needed politically correct solace and comfort to the lovers of democracy all over the world, Joe Biden took over the reins of the United States of America Wednesday amid unprecedented security on a scale never known in the history of oath taking ceremony.
Oath taking ceremony has always been an exciting event, not just for those living in the US, but to all those living outside of that country as well. For the first time an outgoing President took a politically incorrect, morally wrong and psychologically misguided step of not welcoming the incoming President, the step has not surprised the observers though.

The decision by Donald Trump to skip the event is clearly a warning signal to the new administration in the White House. The intrusion by the supporters of Trump into the Capitol, has already sent out enough signals about what’s in store for the Biden administration. It’s not going to be a smooth run.
These are the people to be watched in the coming months. They all strongly believe that Trump truly got elected and that Biden wrongly occupying the seat of power. The latest video that surfaced a couple of days ago depicting the ugly scenes inside the Capitol on sixth January, clearly demonstrates that these people were taking “unspoken” hidden instructions from Trump. They did not care for the democratic values that the Capitol holds for the US. There are thousands of such people spread across the country, ready to indulge in any act which they will fancifully describe as “bravery” for Trump.
Ever since Trump realized that his days in the White House are numbered, he began a psychological war with vengeance against all those who disapproved of his actions, regardless of political affiliation. He left no stone unturned in a bid to dictate terms to the top level officers too few days before his inevitable exit. The refusal by the officers in unequivocal terms shattered his hopes to continue in the office. Instead of seeing the reality he chose to create his own virtual world wherein he still rules the roost. For Trump it’s a sheer new game.
A dangerous political game indeed has just begun !
