The presidential inauguration is in a few days, and there will be a lot of regular people traveling to our nation’s capitol to attend. School groups, marching bands, civic organizations, in short, people who may not be particularly involved in the politics of the occasion, or who pay any attention to politics in general. Many of them are likely innocent to the machinations of our government and thus unaware of just how partisan and vitriolic our national discourse has become. These babes in the woods must be warned of what possibly awaits them.
America is full of a--holes. Americans are human, after all, and a large percentage, if not a majority, of humans are a--holes. This being the case, and Washington, DC being the a--hole nexus of the universe on a normal day anyway, a--holes will be well represented in Washington over the weekend. It seems prudent to offer the “normies” a guide, a distillation of the various types of a--holes they could encounter if attending the festivities and some tips on how to deal with them. Doubtless, it is not a definitive list, and feel free to add your own a--holes in the comments.
Hopefully, this non-definitive list of a--holes will be of some help to attendees of the inauguration. You should be fine if you just remember that, just like in everyday life, everyone is a potential a--hole. So have fun, stay safe, and God bless this land full of a--holes. We’re gonna need it.
