Today the official start of the peaceful transition of power from Obama to President-Elect Donald Trump begins. Understandably all eyes were upon the Trump family’s arrival at Andrews Air Force base late this morning.

First to embark was 10 year old Barron, followed by Donald Trump Jr and his family, Eric and Lara Trump, then Ivanka with her son Theodore followed by her husband Jared.

For those wondering, Ivanka is wearing a classic sheath dress with a ruffled waterfall coat custom-made by Carolina Herrera and a pair of nude pumps from her own fashion line.

Next off the plane were other family members and then it was time for the President-Elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania to disembark.

Once at the bottom of the stairs, we were treated to this wonderful sight.

A significant difference between the President-Elect’s salute and someone else’s wouldn’t you say?

Moving right along… the Trump family headed directly to a luncheon held for GOP lawmakers, where he spoke for a few minutes and also persuaded Melania to say a few words.

Not bad for being completely caught off guard! After a stop at Blair House, where President-Elect Trump will spend the night, the family along with Vice President-Elect Pence and his wife, headed over to Arlington National Cemetery.

Laying a wreath honoring our nation’s heroes at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is by far one of the most solemn and profound occasions one can experience. Being a witness to history and hearing the mournful sounds of Taps, one can’t help but be moved.

A fitting start to one of this Republic’s greatest strengths, a peaceful transition of power.

    A salute with a coffee cup in your hand is not a salute—it’s flipping off the men and women who protect our country and all those who were killed or wounded doing it. That’s what Obeyme will be remembered for…..if a Navy ship is ever named for this fool, I hope it’s a garbage scow…..with a broken rudder so the ship always moves in a circle to port (a/k/a the left).
    On a much happier note, I love how DJT said thank you to the airman at the foot of the stairs; you know HE loves returning salutes the way it should be done, unlike Clinton and President Stampy Foot.

      Even where I disagree with Trump, and places where I am afraid he won’t follow through, I am thankful to have someone in office who appears to respect me and mine (us deplorables) and those who serve.

      (Naming aircraft carriers for ex-presidents has become an exercise in PC in later years – honoring all, rather than just the ones who excelled at winning wars. I would LOVE to see a USS Andrew Jackson – much like Trump, it would tick off all the right people.)
