Hollywood has long leaned liberal politically, so Jan. 20, 2021, marked a happy day for most in Tinseltown. As they watched the inauguration of Joe Biden, many celebs took to social media to celebrate. Kerry Washington, for instance, tweeted several times during the pomp and circumstance. "Sooooo much work to do. But TODAY I want to celebrate. And pray. And revel in our tremendous power (even against all odds) to make history happen," she wrote. She later praised 22-year-old Amanda Gorman for her poem reading. "YES @TheAmandaGorman. YES!!!!!! God bless you. 'It's the past we step into and how we repair it.'"

"As an Irishman, I've always believed America isn't just a country, it's an idea, one the whole world has a stake in. Lady Liberty's been bruised and battered these past four years but today her flame burns bright as we watch her torch transfer to two new leaders who will calm the waters, even while they chart a new course. Joe Biden understands that in perilous times like these it is Yeats' concept of cold passion that's required…an idea both very Irish, and very American. Congratulations and Godspeed to President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who's history making, history-shaping achievement deserves many more moments in the sun. And here's to those conservatives who, when incited to turn your back on democracy, chose to put country above party, truth above tribalism … and accepted that the people have spoken. #Inauguration #Inauguration2021" –Bono
