It’s now official. Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States of America. And to commemorate his victory, his uber-sharp transition team displayed an inspiring photo from the president’s inauguration on Trump’s new POTUS Twitter account. However, the photo in question is not from Trump’s ceremony but rather the 2009 inauguration of America’s first African-American President Barrack Obama.

Having quickly realized their error, someone from Trump’s team changed the picture to a generic American flag background.
Here’s the real difference between the Obama and Trump inaugurations.

First Melania Trump copies Michelle Obama’s speech and now this. It seems that this little faux pas may foreshadow what Trump plans to do over the span of the next four years. He’s going to take credit for all of Obama’s accomplishments while demonizing his legacy. But his biggest problem is that he can’t coast on Obama’s coattails for four years, especially when he’s recklessly dismantling a government of which he has little understanding of.
At the end of the day, Trump will have to answer for the final balance of his failures and real accomplishments. It’s a safe bet that he will be found wanting.
