Today, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. And unless some time traveler shows up before noon, this is really happening. If you want to watch history being made, there are plenty of options—even if you don’t have cable.
President-elect Trump will take the oath of office at 11:30am Eastern, 8:30am Pacific, 7:30pm Moscow time, but coverage across most networks will be starting much earlier. Shortly before the ceremony Trump and his family will be attending a church service with Dallas-based pastor Robert Jeffress. Pastor Jeffress has called Catholicism a “counterfeit religion,” said Mormonism is a cult, and claims that Islam is evil and promotes pedophilia.
In 2014, Jeffress also said that while President Obama may not himself be the Antichrist, his policies are paving the way for the Antichrist: “A future world dictator will assume power under the guise of the greater good of the world.” So there’s that.

God bless America. And if God is really up there (true believers might even be having doubts, given who’s about to ascend to the most powerful office in the world), may He have mercy on our souls.
