After a fifty-year-long political career, Joe Biden was officially sworn is as the forty-sixth President of the United States.

Of course, his pre successor, Donald Trump, didn't attend the ceremony.

He confirmed his absence in a tweet earlier this month before being banned from Twitter.

Instead, Trump left Washington D.C on Air Force One first thing yesterday morning...

Getty

And headed for the Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.

But regardless of Trump's controversial absence, the inauguration went ahead smoothly...

Getty

And the entire world watched on as President Biden and his vice president, Kamala Harris, made their way through the sacred ceremony.

Biden's swearing-in was an emotional moment for many Americans...

Getty

And it signalled a whole new era for our country.

And of course...

How can we not mention Lady Gaga's performance of the national anthem?!

Biden's first speech as president struck a chord with viewers, too. 

Getty

The new president gave a lengthy and emotional speech, where he addressed the deeply divided nation on what the next 4 years will hold under his ruling.

Biden promised to "write an American story of hope"...

As well as weighing in on the devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the issue of racial inequality across the country.

"Millions of jobs have been lost. Hundreds of thousands of businesses closed. A cry for racial justice, some 400 years in the making, moves us. The dream of justice for all will be deferred no longer. A cry for survival comes from the planet itself, a cry that can't be any more desperate or any more clear now."

He also became the first POTUS to ever challenge white supremacy in his inauguration speech.

He said this:

"The rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism, that we must confront and we will defeat. To overcome these challenges, to restore the soul and secure the future of America, requires so much more than words. It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy - unity."

Most can agree that Biden's speech was nothing short of phenomenal...

And one that captured the hearts of the nation.

However, it seems that not everyone was too moved by it.

A day on from Biden's groundbreaking speech, footage has started circulating that allegedly shows former POTUS, Bill Clinton, nodding off in the audience next to his wife, Hilary Clinton.

Yes, falling asleep during an inauguration speech.

Getty

It's the ultimate taboo, isn't it?

But we'll let that slide for now.

Getty

It seems as though Biden's already finding comfort in his new role.

The president has already gotten to work...

Getty

From assigning new leaders to making sure the team around him is filled with strong candidates, Biden is ready to implement all the changes he needs to in order to ensure a powerful administration.

And that means everyone must be on the same page.

Getty

And, he's apparently warned all of his new staff about one specific rule.

People were shocked by his sternness regarding the issue...

During a virtual swearing-in ceremony, President Biden said this:

Getty

"I'm not joking when I say this: If you're ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot. No if, ands, or buts."

He also added this little snub:

"That's been missing in a big way the last 4 years."

It's nice to have a leader that preaches empathy and respect.

Here's a look at the amazing moment during his speech.
