This is how Twitter reacted to Donald Trump's first speech as US President
Anyone surprised? No. Ok, so.
Donald J. Trump has made a quite, em, spectacular speech at his inauguration in Washington this afternoon.
The reaction to it has been pretty damning (and funny).

Trump's speech will make especially interesting listening four years from now. I expect we're going to be using a lot of clips in future

I don't understand why everyone is so upset. That all sounded perfectly reasonable and not at all like airy fairy, nationalistic rhetoric.

Welcome to the age of plunder, bluster, and empty rhetoric. In other words, to the Age of Dumb. If you voted for him, you're responsible.
