A historic day in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday with Joe Biden being sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. While the attack on the U.S. Capitol and the COVID-19 pandemic made attendance an all-time low, there was no shortage of memorable moments from the Presidential Inauguration. Here are some of the reactions from the event that welcomed Biden back to Washington on Twitter.
