  • -Welcome! Welcome, welcome to

  • "The Tonight Show," everybody!

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Well, guys, today, Joe Biden was sworn in as the

  • 46th President of the United States!

  • ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Yes, Joe Biden, our nation turns its bleary eyes to you.

  • It was a bright, sunny day in Washington,

  • and now we finally have a president who knows

  • not to stare directly at the sun.

  • Seriously, anyone else feel like they just lost 280 pounds?

  • Anyone? -Yeah.

  • -Okay.

  • Yeah, somehow, we made it to the inauguration,

  • Today, Canada wrapped us in a foil blanket,

  • while Mexico offered us soup.

  • It feels like the country is back.

  • Sure, the GPS took us on some crazy back roads

  • for the last four years, but now we're back on Main Street

  • and we can tell people we were lost.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Yeah, it's a new era.

  • For starters, I'm pretty sure we'll never hear the names

  • Steve Bannon and Lil Wayne in the same sentence ever again.

  • What a time to be president.

  • There's a raging pandemic,

  • the economy is cratering, and, for two years,

  • the country has been caught in the middle of

  • a vicious-chicken sandwich war.

  • Yeah, Biden is taking over at a time

  • when the country has never felt more deeply divided.

  • And I mean deeply divided.

  • I mean, we don't even have peace among

  • the cast of "Sex and the City."

  • Well, if you missed it, here's the big moment when

  • Biden was sworn in as president.

  • -I, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., do solemnly swear...

  • -...that I will faithfully execute...

  • -...that I will faithfully execute...

  • -...the office of President of the United States...

  • -...the office of President of the United States...

  • -So help you God? -So help me God.

  • -Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • What a day for America.

  • It feels like the Fourth of July,

  • plus the Super Bowl, plus a little bit of SantaCon.

  • And did you notice this?

  • Biden was sworn in on a giant Bible

  • that's been in his family since 1893.

  • Look at this thing.

  • Wow!

  • That's not a Bible you find in a dresser.

  • That is a dresser.

  • Even the pope was like, "Eh, it's a little much."

  • After he took the oath, Biden gave his inaugural address,

  • where he tried to unite the country.

  • Listen to this.

  • -And at this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed.

  • And I promise you, I will fight as hard

  • for those who did not support me as for those who did.

  • We must end this uncivil war.

  • -Yeah! That's what we need to hear!

  • I feel reinvigorated!

  • I feel like we can come together.

  • I feel like we can beat COVID.

  • I feel like we can take the politics out of

  • buying a damn pillow.

  • Of course, Kamala Harris was also sworn in today,

  • becoming the first woman ever to serve as vice president.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Watch this.

  • -I, Kamala Devi Harris, do solemnly swear...

  • -...that I will well and faithfully discharge...

  • -...that I will well and faithfully discharge

  • the duties of the office upon which

  • I am about to enter, so help me God.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -So many firsts.

  • Not only is she the first female vice president,

  • she's the first black VP, the first South Asian VP,

  • and the first person to be considered cool

  • while being married to a guy named Doug.

  • Of course, all the big lawmakers were at the inauguration,

  • and a lot of people were enjoying

  • Bernie Sanders' look at the ceremony.

  • Here he is.

  • Looks like he's about to scatter bread

  • to a bunch of pigeons at the park.

  • It was quite a scene.

  • Lady Gaga sang the national anthem.

  • Then Jennifer Lopez sang "This Land is Your Land."

  • Then, in a show of unity,

  • Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell

  • got up and sang "Islands in the Stream."

  • I thought it was sweet.

  • But all the performances were fantastic.

  • Lady Gaga was great. Jennifer Lopez was fantastic.

  • Garth Brooks sang "Amazing Grace."

  • He was great.

  • But a lot of people noticed that when Garth was done,

  • he left kind of in a hurry.

  • Did you see that? Watch this.

  • Yep.

  • Yeah. Yeah. What was that?

  • Was his horse double-parked?

  • Meanwhile, let's talk about the elephant

  • who wasn't in the room, President Trump.

  • This morning, he left The White House and delivered

  • a farewell speech before flying off to Florida.

  • Here's what he said to his supporters.

  • -We love you. We will be back in some form.

  • Have a good life. We will see you soon.

  • -I know a lot of you were expecting Trump's speech

  • to be weird and inappropriate.

  • Well, you were 100% right.

  • "We'll be back in some form"?

  • Who wrote this speech? Voldemort?

  • And then, finally, Trump boarded Air Force One for the last time.

  • And as his plane took off, they were playing

  • "My Way" by Frank Sinatra.

  • This is real. Watch this.

  • -♪ Yes,

  • it was my

  • way

  • -Yeah, Trump was singing "My Way"

  • while the rest of the country was singing...

  • Nah, nah, nah, nah

  • Nah, nah, nah, nah

  • Hey, hey, hey

  • Goodbye

  • We have a great show!

  • Give it up for The Roots, everybody!

  • -♪ Nah, nah, nah, nah

  • Nah, nah, nah, nah

  • Hey, hey, hey

  • Goodbye

  • ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ]
