    Ese Olumhense from Washington, D.C. As Donald Trump took the oath of office in Washington, D.C. on Friday, much of the crowd assembled on the National Mall watched in silence. The air, swollen with excitement and anxiety, was relatively still, aside from sparse drops of rain cutting through. Towards the end of his oath, a group of twentysomethings, donning the iconic bright red “Make America Great Again” caps and beanies, started to chatter. One, frustrated, had tried to make a […]

Business, at least at that hour, was not brisk: Many passersby—arriving off trains from the Northeast Corridor and likely in town for planned anti-Trump protests—stopped for photos with the lone Bernie Sanders supporter outside the station, holding a styrofoam board clustered with buttons from a bygone primary.
