Joe Biden and Kamala Harris get the keys to the White House

Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States

Joseph R. Biden, a former vice president and senator, was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States at 11:49 a.m.

President Biden immediately signed multiple executive orders reversing policies (immigration, travel bans, climate action) put into place by his predecessor President Donald Trump.

The Bidens prepare to enter the White House as First Couple

Before the Bidens officially entered the White House as the new First Couple, there was a brief walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. Attendance was extremely limited due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The new Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris also walked the route.

Lady Gaga won the day on the entertainment front. Her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner was magnificent.

Bruce Springsteen opened the show but performances by John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Tim McGraw and others were all eye-popping successes. Great show!

Fireworks filled the skies around the Capitol as Katy Perry sang her hit Firework to close the show.

Well played, William.

God Bless America.
