Inauguration Day: Behind-the-scenes from Washington, D.C.

Posted: Updated:

One of CBS 8’s own traveled across the country to witness Donald Trump take the Presidential Oath of Office.

Paco Ramos, a CBS 8 Interactive Digital Editor, arrived in Washington, D.C. Tuesday and hit the streets to give us a behind-the-scenes look during this historic time.

He saw the White House without lights, as if no one was home.

Ramos also visited the Lincoln Memorial - where President Trump held his inaugural concert.

“When I happened to be there that's when 3 Doors Down was doing a sound check. So I got to see a little of them as well as I was walking around.”

Friday, Ramos said despite the protests and the pictures of violence seen the in network feeds, he personally never felt that he was in danger of being hurt. 

Ramos also said it was a very different experience from the inauguration he attended four years ago.

“Walking up and down the street one to two days before the ceremony, you were walking shoulder-to-shoulder with people,” Ramos continued. “This time around not so many people came to D.C. and there was so much more energy I felt four years ago.”
    
But being at an inauguration, Ramos said is such an awe-inspiring event that he encourages others who are interested to attend at least one.

“Whether you agree with him or not, I feel like every American should probably witness it at some point in their life. See the transfer of powers.”
