>> bret: the inaugural parade wrapping up, 84 different marching bands, groups, as you look at at the first lady their anti-president of the united states, donald j. trump, shaking the hand of his new defense secretary, james mattis, who was confirmed today by the u.s. senate. they are talking to the first lady. it has been a long day so far as you see the wave they there toe crowd. they are in the reviewing stand. they will head back to the white house. it is not over for president donald j. trump and the first lady. let's
quite a spectacle for that. >> it really was a remarkable day, bret, it is something i haven't seen in my years of covering the white house, and i've been doing it off and on since 1999, certainly going all her back to the 1960s. we've certainly never seen somebody who never really had an involvement in politics, a real outsider came in. and this speech he gave earlier, a real sign that he plans to change the way that this white house and washington does business. you can see the faces on many of the members of the congress as donald trump was basically saying that there is a new way of doing things, at least from the commander-in-chief's perspective, from the president's perspective, you're all going to have to get used to it. this is no longer going to be a government that works on behalf of washington. it is going to be a government that works on behalf of the american people. and that's why he was elected, that's why so many thousands of people came to all of those events unpacked those arenas and built those horse barns we went to and so many different places. as we remember in the early going of the campaign, thought are these crowds going to translate into votes or are they merely here to see the
spectacle. pretty clear at this point that they translated into votes. now we start a new day here in washington, and i think there are a lot of things that are still uncertain, but one certainty is that donald trump says he is going to work as hard as he can every day to be the president of all americans. we'll see how it goes. >> bret: as they make their way into the white house. the last outsider actually was dwight d eisenhower, had not served in public office before. at that time he had a cabinet, outsiders and his cabinet as well. did not have any generals, but donald trump as president does with the defense secretary james mattis getting confirmed and also general john kelly tonight getting confirmed at the department of homeland security as homeland security secretary, john. >> he came to a point actually where he was looking at having so many generals and his cabinet, he really wanted to try
to find a place for david petraeus but it got to the point where maybe he had too many military people. but, again, as donald trump goes into get changed for the balls tonight, we're left to ponder what kind of administration this is going to be. based on what we saw earlier today, we are getting an early idea that this is going to be one that shakes things up. here is the moment from earlier. >> i, donald john trump, do solemnly swear... >> he used the 1,433 words of his inaugural address to put those same politicians on notice. there is a new sheriff in town and things are going to change. >> we will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it. the time for empty talk is over.
now arrives the hour of action. >> it was vintage trump. the same themes he repeated again and again at rallies across the nation for 17 months. but today it wasn't rhetoric, it wasn't promises, it was policy. >> today's ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from washington, d.c., and giving it back to you, the people. >> from the platform, donald trump moved inside the building where he took his first official actions. officially submitting the nominations for his cabinet secretary. >> he was approved today. [laughter]
it is coming though, right? >> trump was seeking parity from democrats with what republicans allowed president obama on inauguration day 2009 where the senate confirmed seven of obama's nominees. today, democrats allowed votes only enter court nominees, mattis and john kelly. trump also signed a proclamation for a national day of patriotism. today's actions were mostly about process, the real meat will come on monday when trump is expected to begin signing executive orders, obamacare, isis, and environmental regulations. on the newly revamped whitehouse.gov web site, talked about the plan. at the traditional lunch, trump encountered his rival from the election campaign. clinton, who had been sitting three rows behind him during the swearing in.
>> i was very honored, very, very honored to come up when i heard that president bill clinton and secretary hillary clinton were coming today, and i think it is appropriate to say, and i would like you to stand up. i would like you to stand up. >> after the launch, which featured an almost all-american menu of lobster and shrimp, black angus beef, chocolate souffle, cherry ice cream, and three different minds, they made their way to the east steps of the capitol. from there, it was off to the inaugural parade. along the parade route, thousands of supporters who were pitting their hopes for the future under prompt, and in other places
along pennsylvania avenue, none of the violent protests that marked the celebration blocks away. they got out of the presidential limousine, the first time, in front of trump's pride and joy, signature hotel, a reminder of how unique this moment in american history is. >> bret: already a long day for president trump, it will be longer still, three balls to go to tonight meet >> john, thank you. it was a long day, we will have analysis of that speech. brit hume, juan williams, laura ingraham, charles krauthammer all here. special coverage of the 45th inauguration. constipated? trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief

we have reporting's from authorities that 217 people were arrested accused of rioting during these protests, essentially, that developed about six or 7 blocks away from the parade route. we are aware of six police officers who sustained injuries, three injuries to the head, but all minor and nonlife-threatening injuries, we are told. again, 217 people arrested, some property damaged, but for the most part, the parade, the inauguration, got off without incident. let's take a closer look at president trump's inaugural address. chief washington correspondent james rosen is inside the rotunda tonight. >> just over 16 minutes, it was the shortest inaugural address and forecourt decades and the most blistering indictment of the powerful figure seated on the dais that any figure has ever delivered. >> the establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of
our country. their victories have not been your victories. and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. >> at times, the newest president appeared to bristle at what he was hearing. >> bernie sanders could have spoken those words. and he spoke those words with the entire establishment sitting there. this is a guy who overturned two dynasties that created and built those establishments. >> heralding the dawn of a new create, a new vision, his reclaimed model, "america first first." >> every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit american workers and american families. we must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries
making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. >> it was shocking because it was just so different from the usual blah, blah, blah. it was uncompromising. >> the new commander in chief exulted the funding of the u.s. military about the subsidization of foreign militaries, protection of u.s. borders over other countries borders, and a realist doctrine of american power. >> it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. >> this was donald trump seizing power. this was the speech of an insurgent, the leader of a revolt that has taken control in washington and he intends to push that agenda. >> some on the left found the address, with its reference to the american carnage of crime,
drugs, and gangs to be too dark a portrayal of urban america. still others demonstrating that extreme partisanship will be mark of the trump era branded the address hitlerian. >> bret: let's bring in our panel, brit hume, laura ingraham, editor, laura ingraham juan williams, and charles krauthammer. i want to play this sound bite, it was all over the board, but this was an interesting statement. >> when he said today, "america first," it wasn't just the racial -- i shouldn't say it racial, the hitlerian comment. what both teresa may think? what happened to the special relationship. if you are putin, probably pounding the table saying, this
is what i have been saying. russia first. >> hitlerian. >> it doesn't take long for them to go to the most extreme negativity, the same guy when he saw obama -- it doesn't surprise me that msnbc, cnn throughout the day, i was able to see some of the coverage, a lot of focus on the negativity. trump laid waste to all of the people who were sitting behind him. the bushes, the obamas, and a lot of the republicans. i walked past john kasich, kind of gray face today, marco rubio is waving to people. all of these people that he defeated over the last 18 months had to comment here on this new vision for the republican party, and it makes a lot of people really uncomfortable. >> what is that in a nutshell? what is that vision? >> and economic populism that is conservative, not the
conservatism of pure interventionism of george bush, not the globalist vision that both bush and obama and clinton all shared. and it is much more rooted, i think, closer to my old boss ronald reagan than it is at all to the bushes. that's why it was surprising, that he was able to would make this thing. today's speech, james was right, total trump. this was trump from beginning to end. it was an indictment but also very helpful. we are protected by god, if vision for the future that is going to be vibrant and creating jobs for everyone regardless of where you come from. i thought that part was very positive. local, i was up there on that platform, there were a lot of egos bruised and a lot of people still seemingly in a state of shock. >> bret: charles? >> i think he did lay waste to the vision of john kennedy and ronald reagan. when trump excoriated foreigners for training us of our wealth,
for being essentially free riders, using us, using us, the most striking thing about that is, he made no distinction between friend and foe. when john kennedy spoke, he said we will support any friend, oppose any photo in foe. no mention of liberty, free will, no distinction between friends and enemies. when you are in britain and you do hear this and you hear this essential indictment of all the outside world, all the others as being responsible for american decline, despair, economic problems, et cetera, then you've got to ask yourself, this is a new country. now, you could say, you can make the argument for this and say, when we won the cold war, we decided we are through carrying the world on our shoulder. this speech, i think, is 25
years late and it is remarkable that we went a quarter of a century maintaining the burden. but this is a way of saying, we are done. >> bret: brit? >> i will just say this. because he has no public record in public life, we know less about this incoming president that i that i can think of ande had a long way to go before you can say we know what he is about. you look at what charles and laura have pointed out, they certainly pointed in one direction. you look at his cabinet appointments, one after another, particularly in foreign affairs, an entirely different direction. the rest of what he said, it is a complex picture, in some ways contradictory, a long way to go here, and i think it is foolish to climb out on any limbs that might be sought off when he turns out, as he has done for a year or more now, to be very different than we have understood it.
>> bret: juan, what about that analysis of giving him a chance? >> i think most people are for that, but we saw the kind of campaign speech that some might say, the speech at the convention must document today also had dark moments. i think spoke directly and bluntly and i think it was a threat, as we heard from joe trippi, not just the democrats but the establishment clearly saying they have been reaping the benefits not the american people. that opens the door to real challenges to the republicans who now dominate the majority in both the house and the sentence. >> bret: 10 seconds. >> the republican establishment was defeated in many ways by donald trump but now he has to deal with them on a day-to-day basis. >> bret: panel, thank you. next, some sights and sounds from today's inauguration of our 45th president of the united states. coricidin hbp is the only brand
