President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania were enjoying their evening at the inaugural ball on Friday night and Twitter was abuzz with chatter. Frank Sinatra’s My Way was the tune to which the President and First Lady had their first post-inauguration dance.
During their dance, the president alternated between singing along and gesturing to the crowd, throwing in a fist-pump here and there.
While dancing, he grinned broadly and whispered in his wife’s ear. The Trumps danced to My Way at both the Liberty Ball and Freedom Ball.

This is the most awkward slow dance in the history of the universe. #InauguralBall

#InauguralBall is such a disaster. Losers everywhere. Performers are low energy. Food is garbage. Music is coming out of wherever. Bad.

Every time they show clips from the #InauguralBall it looks like some crazy Russian tv skit or 1980s talent competition.

I hope the first dance is to “Donald Lost The Popular Vote By Three Million Votes” sung by America#InauguralBall

Twitter users, which amused themselves to no end throughout Trump’s candidacy, continued to mock the Trumps Friday night.
During remarks at the Liberty Ball, Trump was exultant.
“They said we — and me — we didn’t have a chance, but we knew we were going to win, and we won,” he said.
“Today we had a great day. People that weren’t so nice to me were saying that we did a really good job today. They hated to do it, but they did it,” he said.
At the Freedom Ball, Trump asked the crowd a pointed question.
“Should I keep the Twitter going or not?” he said, getting a loud, affirmative reaction.
“The enemies keep saying, ‘Oh, that’s terrible,’” Trump said. “But it’s a way of bypassing the dishonest media, right?”
