The Historical Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ Inauguration Ceremony

La 59e inauguration du 46e président des Etats-Unis, Joe Biden, a été en grande partie unique : le petit nombre de participants assis loin les uns des autres avec des masques ; l’absence du président sortant deux semaines après une insurrection qu’il a encouragée ; la première femme élue à la vice-présidence, Kamala Harris. Des cérémonies exceptionnelles on en a vues aux US, que ce soit en temps de guerre ou de crise nationale. Mais celle-ci rentrera dans l’Histoire : elle fut aussi l’une des plus regardées à la télévision. Avec 33,8 millions de téléspectateurs, alle occupe la troisième place après la première investiture de Reagan (41 millions) et celle d’Obama (37 millions). Un clair signe de l’espoir que cette nouvelle administration suscite.

Entre pop stars témoignant d’un empowerment féminin nécessaire, la première vice-présidente, concerts organisés dans la rue par des stars et engouement populaire, voici un résumé en photos de presse de cette journée mémorable qui a balayé le passé et inauguré un futur, espérons-le, meilleur.
