As the Jan. 20 inauguration ceremony of President Donald Trump approached, the entire nation seemed to sit on tenterhooks; after the particularly divisive 2016 election, what would Trump's first day as commander-in-chief look like?

Below is a play-by-play of the Friday ceremony's highlights, as told through the viral #Content of the day.
