Inauguration Speech Secret Decoder Ring

When Donald Trump says “people,” he means his base. And his base mostly means “white people.” Below, a few highlights of the Inauguration speech are decoded for your edification and amusement. Transcript and video of the speech here.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our [white] people.

…(APPLAUSE)…

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the [white] people.

…(APPLAUSE)…

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the [white] people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the [white] people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the [white] citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling [white] families all across our land.

…(APPLAUSE)…

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the [white] people.

…(APPLAUSE)…

January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the [white] people became the rulers of this nation again.

…(APPLAUSE)…
