Chief Justice Roberts administered the oath.

No flubs this time!

And tweets, with more lapdog swooning, poured in. Breaking!

Aww, did you want to be the one and only?

Not the first words of his second term (he offered thanks to the watching media and to Chief Justice Roberts first), but close.

Zing! Those are the only times he refrains from using the word “I.”

Update: FLOTUS is proud again.
