We did it,” Trump, who wore a black tuxedo and a bow tie, said to applause. “We began this journey and they said we — we, and me — we didnt have a chance, but we knew we were gonna win. And we won.

A Pakistani Muslim immigrant whose visa is up for renewal this summer, Mahira Tiwana tells us that despite feeling other in Trumps America, she is not ready to give up on the American dream yet. Sina Toossi worries that Iranian-Americans will lose the voice they gained under Obama and that the Iran nuclear deal will be dismantled, worsening U.S. relations with Iran. Richard Eskow addresses Americans who voted for Trump because they felt left behind, saying Trump will let them down and that then, the working class should create a grand alliance, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. advocated. Filmmaker Ethan Coen pens a Dr. Seuss-style poem about Trump, saying, Hell change some people used to say / Calm down after Election Day / But Putin and the KKK knew / Trumpet always be that way. Jon Deutsch suggests the plus side of a Trump presidency could be the disruption of a political system that is long overdue for reform.

Broadcast television news networks devoted a grand total of 36 minutes in all of 2016 to big, important issues that neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton brought up in three nationally televised debates during the 2016 presidential debate. These same broadcast news network executives and news anchors spent 90 minutes meeting privately with the president after the election, and then agreed not to talk about any of the issues that might or might not have been discussed in that meeting. As a result, every, single one of us was left guessing about what might actually happen next. Today, Day One, we should stop. There is a public hospital in one of Americas biggest cities that is, right now, desperately trying to figure out how in the world it is going to provide health care services for tens of thousands of the poor who are about to lose their health care insurance when Congress and President Trumps White House demolishes Obamacare without a replacement.

"The wage gap is not only our shame as a nation, but an embarrassment of such magnitude that history will not judge us kindly," he says about his reason to march. "Our healthcare system, particularly with regard to reproductive rights, meanwhile, was supposed to have been settled law but it appears that every generation will have to vigilantly fight to protect encroachment upon women's rights to and within their own bodies. We are witnessing the most devastating reversal of human progress in this country that I've seen in my lifetime, and possibly in the more than 240 years of our grand experiment in self-governance." -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

MELBOURNE: Second seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams look to have easy rides into the Australian Open third round Thursday, but it could be a trickier assignment for Rafael Nadal. Six-time champion Djokovic is looking to reach round three at Melbourne Park for the 11th straight year with wildcard Denis Istomin, ranked 117, standing in his way. It should be plain sailing for the Serb who has beaten the Uzbek in all five previous encounters, and has only lost once to anyone outside the top 100 in the last seven years – Juan Martin del Porto at the Rio Olympics. Williams, off to a solid start in her quest for an Open-era record 23rd Grand Slam trophy, faces Lucie Safarova, who saved nine match points before beating Yanina Wickmayer in round one, on Rod Laver Arena. The American great, who lost the top ranking to Angelique Kerber last year, has hardly played since the US Open but is happy with how she is progressing as the new season unfolds.

A Twitch stream is following Grand Theft Auto V NPCs around today as they walk around the streets of San Andreas, crying hysterically. Watch live video from bwatanabe on www.twitch.tv The last time we saw the San Andreas Community Cam created as an art project by Brent Watanabe it was following a deer in a slightly modded version of the game. The deer got into all sorts of antics , including getting shot at and chased by the cops, and somehow surviving pretty much everything thrown its way. The stream makes its return today in time for the inauguration of our 45th president. Watanabe is using the same basic programming as the deer that, in this case, allows the citizens to wander around and make decisions of their own accord. The only difference is the audio recordings (of what surely must be ugly crying) attached to them. Read more... More about Twitch , Grand Theft Auto V , Gaming , and Entertainment
