Joe Biden’s not the only person recently sworn in as president.
Journalist Lisa Matthews was also sworn in as the 114th president of the National Press Club.
And the ceremony absolutely suited the occasion:
When Lisa Matthews, assignment manager of U.S. video for the Associated Press, was sworn in as the 114th president of the National Press Club this week, she placed her hand on the AP Stylebook to take her oath, administered by Dan Rather.@LisaNMatthews @DanRather @PressClubDC pic.twitter.com/2WJTeNwyzc

Honestly, we’d’ve been disappointed if anyone other than Dan Rather had administered the oath. Given the state of modern American journalism, Rather is really the best man for the job.
This is Babylon Bee material right here! https://t.co/XQeNvsNqJi

LOL they let DAN RATHER swear-in a journalist? Does the AP not have archives of its own reporting from 2004? https://t.co/WMWsQCvzbo

Dan Rather? Were all the journalists who hadn’t fabricated fake gotcha exposes’ too busy to officiate?

Sworn in by the Father of Fake News. Brave and stunning.
