“It’s really quite astounding just how quickly most of us got over Trump. Absolutely NOBODY cares if he attends the inauguration. His supporters won’t show up, except maybe some protesters and Biden’s supporters don’t want him there. He doesn’t get to speak. The day isn’t about him.

—Bryon Smith

“Another part of the system that needs fixing. Entirely too many loopholes in government, in which people can manipulate.”

—Charles Walker
