Jilly & Second Gentleman, Modi & Congress, Obama & Hillary — all praise for Biden-Harris

The most politically correct and incorrect tweets of the day from across the political spectrum.

Text Size:

Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris took oath as the 49th Vice President Wednesday. Twitter welcomed the change of guard in Washington with both joy and relief—Harris, especially, came in for special mention.

First off, the first tweet from President Joe Biden.

Madam Vice President had just three business-like words for her new role.

First Lady Jill Biden and the first ever `Second Gentleman’ Douglas Emhoff were as correct and loving as always.

Former president Barak Obama thinks the time has come for Biden to step into his shoes…

Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate, congratulated Biden and Harris, but singled out the latter—she even had a surprise encounter with a member of the Harris family.

US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar seems at a loss for words but then found, what she thought, summed it up. Have a look.

House Representative and Twitter star Alexandria Occasio Cortez or AOC as she is commonly known, wasn’t going to let Biden-Harris rest on their laurels, oh no, she wanted action.

Back home in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of the first to tweet his greetings.

Congressmen P Chidambaram and Sanjay Jha couldn’t resist a political jibe or two as they drew lessons from the election of Harris and Biden’s speech.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra immediately responded – and the Congress won’t like what he had to say.

It takes journalist Mehdi Hassan to explain the amazing-ness of Kamala Harris as Vice President – er, through her dietary preferences.

Meanwhile, spare a thought or two for Mr. Donald Trump. Climate activist Greta Thunberg, for one, isn’t letting him forget her any time soon, not after calling him a ‘very old man’…

NDTV co-founder Prannoy Roy expresses his excitement about Trump…

And, amid the transition, former US ambassador to India Ken Juster’s parting gift.

Lastly, the photo of the day—here’s looking at you, Kamala!
