Live coverage: Celebration of the Biden-Harris inauguration continues, and the work begins

President Joe and Dr. Jill Biden make their way to the freshly deep-cleaned White House at 3 PM ET, walking from 15th Street with an escort in which every branch of the military is represented. At 3:15 PM, the traditional Inauguration Day parade is replaced with a “Parade across America,” hosted by actor Tony Goldwyn. 

And both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are getting right to work—Biden by taking a series of executive actions, and Harris when she swears in three new senators and shifts the balance of power in the Senate.

Fox News’ Sandra Smith wonders if Biden signing executive orders on his first day will show he’s not for unity, asking “what message does this send.” Chris Wallace: “It says that he won. It’s as simple as that.”

Biden has exited the car and is walking. Just stopped by for the ceremonial handshake with Al Roker.

Biden and his whole family strolling down the street, greeting those along the sides of Pennsylvania Avenue. Secret Service undoubtedly having heart attacks.
