We'll have live coverage of the Trump Inauguration

This is the day almost no one - in particular those of us in the media - even thought would actually happen.

Donald Trump will be sworn in today as the 45th president of the United States.

Yes, we elected a billionaire real estate mogul and erstwhile reality TV show host as the commander-in-chief.

I don't know why anyone should be surprised.

This is who we are as a country. We post all of our most intimate moments on social media, clamoring for what Andy Warhol warned us about a few decades back - our 15 minutes of fame.

Trump himself is a social media czar, blasting out 140-character updates on Twitter at all hours of the morning.

Yesterday Trump pledged, for the umpteenth time, to make America Great Again.

I hope he does.

In the meantime, we will be offering all-day live coverage of what is going on in D.C., as well as who from Delco is making the trip.

One of those will be state Rep. Nick Miccarelli, R-162, of Ridley Park. The state legislator is a member of the First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry, which will be taking part in the inaugural parade.

Reporter Rick Kauffman will spend the day in D.C., capturing the day in words and photos, and looking for anyone from Delco who has made the jaunt down I-95.

We also will be getting live Tweets from two Delaware County college students who are in D.C. for the day. Blaine King, from Upper Darby,a nd Justin Miller, from Springfield, will be live-Tweeting all day. In addition, state Rep. Steve Barrar, R-160, of Concord, providing reports from the ground as well as one of tonight's big Inaugural Balls. You can follow our live coverage on DelcoTimes.com starting at 7 a.m. here.
