On Wednesday, the transition team for President-elect(!) Donald Trump unveiled his first official government website,, further demonstrating that this is a real thing that’s really happening.


“Ensuring the smooth transition of presidential power has been a democratic hallmark of the United States for more than 200 years,” begins a press release on the page, implicitly reminding citizens that chaos and rioting are (historically-speaking) regarded as extremely unchill.

“During the 73-day period between Election Day and Inauguration Day, the President-Elect will deploy Agency Review Teams to each federal agency to ensure a smooth transition between administrations,” it continues. “Simultaneously, the incoming administration will identify, vet, and select candidates for approximately 4,100 presidential appointments,” holy shit.

Welp, here we go.
