BY INDYSTAR

Charlotte's hair is blonde!!! - Vice President-elect Mike Pence and his family departed Indianapolis with pets in hand Monday for what his aides described as the “final time” before his inauguration next week in Washington D.C. For the first time, he and his family flew in a U.S. Air Force passenger jet rather than a Trump campaign airplane. The government plane, its side emblazoned with “United States of America,” will be known as Air Force Two after Pence takes office Jan. 20. Pence’s wife, Karen, and his daughter, Charlotte, carried the family’s cats, Oreo and Pickle, as they boarded the airplane. Their rabbit, Marlon Bundo, was also carried aboard in a cage. The Pences will move into the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory after the inauguration. The family has been renting a house in Chevy Chase, Md.

BY WASHINGTON TIMES

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he’s still hoping to confirm President-elect Donald Trump’s national security Cabinet picks on Jan. 20, just after the new president is sworn in. After meeting with Mr. Trump in New York, Mr. McConnell emerged to say Republicans will give all the nominees scrutiny, but he’s pushing to have at least a half-dozen of them ready to go in less than two weeks. “Everybody will be properly vetted as they have been in the past, and I’m hopeful that we’ll get up to six or seven — particularly national security team in place — on day one,” the Kentucky Republican told reporters. Mr. Trump himself also said he’s pleased with the pace on Capitol Hill, saying he expects all of his picks to be approved.

trump420 4,200 Free Joints Will Be Handed Out At Trumps Inauguration

BY HOT NEW WHIPHOP

Seriously. Free weed. #Trump420 The time of Trump is nigh. The pro-cannabis activist group DCMJ is giving out 4,200 joints on Inauguration Day The group is organizing a massive “smoke in” at exactly four minutes and twenty seconds into Donald Trump’s speech. The group doesn’t consider this a protest of the Trump presidency. Instead, it’s “about raising awareness about cannabis reform and getting Trump to support the full legalization of cannabis throughout the United States.” Their goal is to get the new president to commit to federal legalization of marijuana. Marijuana is technically legal in Washington DC, but anyone smoking in public still runs the risk of getting arrested. No matter what happens, Inauguration Day is going to smell dank as hell.
