We knew SOMETHING would happen, but we weren’t sure when and where.

And now we know.

Seems the inauguration of the least popular President in modern history has created a reaction that turned violent in the streets of the capitol where Washington D.C. Police Department are reporting 95 arrests during the opening ceremonies for Donald Trump.

Reports of cops using pepper spray, fires and vandalism started spreading on social media as the day’s events started to unfold. 

We’ve know for awhile now that tons of protesters were scheduled to be in Washington, D.C. this weekend, with the biggest event being tomorrow’s Women’s March on Washington featuring names like Melissa Harris-Perry, Angela Davis, Van Jones and many more.

TELL US: With Trump officially in and Obama out, how are you feeling about the country?
