Good breakdown and fact check of the rhetoric. Follow the embedded links for the REAL numbers.
Donald Trump has been sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. NPR reporters and editors have annotated his remarks.

Thanks for the reminders, Chuck:

"We are together, and we can save each other."
I set that as my 7AM reminder this morning. I set it because, I dunno, maybe up until this point I've been hanging onto a loose and fraying thread that clearly, surely, some savior force would come...

Let's do it:

"One suggestion I’d offer people is not to spread yourself too thin — per above I think the Trump administration is going to make pushes into all sorts of areas: Free speech, women’s health, public education, minority voting, LGBT+ rights and so on. They want you to be dazed and thinking there’s too much to focus on. Pick one as your main focus and drill down on it, hard. Others will take up the other categories. Help them when you can but push hard on the one area you know and care most about. If enough people do that, everything will get covered and energy won’t dissipate. It’s going to be a long four years. Best to keep focus."

Some of it might actually survive.
Behind the headlines, he rebuilt American policies in ways the Trump team will have hard time undoing—and may not even want to.

Remember the "ballots stashed in an Ohio warehouse" story? Yeah, not so much.

And I'd like to know who paid him the "$1,000/hr" to write such crap.

"Mr. Harris said...he was trying to build a political consulting business and needed to protect his reputation. But eventually he agreed to tell the story of his foray into fake news, a very part-time gig that he calculated paid him about $1,000 an hour in web advertising revenue. He seemed to regard his experience with a combination of guilt about having spread falsehoods and pride at doing it so skillfully."
Cameron Harris, a recent college graduate, pulled six million people into his bogus story about the discovery of fraudulent ballots for Hillary Clinton.

Damn.

Never expected a Simon & Garfunkel cover to resonate, but it echoes our times.
NPR Social Tools
The band's Grammy-nominated cover of "The Sound of Silence" seems to come out of left field — until you learn where lead singer David Draiman first cut his teeth as a performer.
