WASHINGTON – Thursday was President Barack Obama’s final full day in office; Donald Trump succeeds him today.
A group of prominent Trump supporters gathered for an exclusive, private party at a DC law office where bartenders served cheekily themed cocktails like “Putin’s Moscow Hacking Mule” and the “Mexican Wallbanger.”
Hall of Fame NFL great Jim Brown, founder of Amer-i-Can, which teaches life management skills, job coaching and other programming, called for unity.
“We are not enemies,” Brown said. “We shouldn’t act like enemies. We have a democratic system and we’ve gone through the democratic process. We’ve got to help whoever is president run the country.”
Former Indiana men’s basketball coach Bobby Knight, a vocal Trump supporter during the campaign, dinged the outgoing president’s golf game in expressing his excitement for the incoming administration.
“Four the last eight years we’ve had a president – it wasn’t his fault – we’ve had a president who was a really poor golfer but all he did was play golf. Now we’ve got a president who’s a hell of a golfer but all he wants to do is work. Believe me, four years from now you’re all going to be proud of the support you gave Donald Trump.”
