WASHINGTON, D.C. (NBC) – After four years in the Oval Office, the former president is spending his first full day as a private citizen in Florida. But his shadow still looms large in Washington as he ponders his next moves while also facing a second impeachment trial.

The Fireworks Display After Joe Biden’s Inauguration Lit Up Washington D.C.

Uncredited/Biden Inaugural Committee/Associated Press Nothing was typical about Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration. As the Coronavirus pandemic rages on — and the Covid-19 vaccine rolls out slowly — the festivities in Washington D.C. had to be safe and socially distant. This meant that on Wednesday night, there were no luxurious balls or parties. There was, however, a totally epic fireworks display.

A Radio Host Was Shocked to Get a Pardon, Because He Never Asked for One

And with good reason: Gary Hendler, 67, never actually requested one from the 45th president. Hendler did, however, send a nearly 90-page pardon application to the Obama Justice Department in 2016 for a drug conspiracy charge in 1984 related to his brief involvement in opening a quaaludes
