The cream of conservative politics was on hand to witness history as people-powered outsider Republican Donald Trump was sworn in to become our nation’s 45th President, the most remarkable ascent to the pinnacle of power in American politics since at least Andrew Jackson.
Many former politicians made the journey to Washington, D.C., as well, including former Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. Bachmann, who herself made a run at the Presidency, later shared with USA Radio the invitation that Trump gave her that night that intrigued many.
Bachmann was just interviewed by Rusty Humphries on USA radio’s Trending Today USA program, and she detailed the incredible phone call she received from Trump’s staff. It was an exclusive invitation to attend one of the presidential inauguration’s most cherished traditions, the morning service at Washington, D.C.’s St. John’s Episcopal Church.
Bachmann revealed that cell phone service had been shut down in our nation’s capital because “because my husband and I were actually out on the street by 5:30 a.m. We had received a late-night invitation from the Trump organization to attend the church service at St. John’s (Episcopal) Church this morning.”
She added, “So, we got up, we were making our way over to Trump International to take the bus to go with President Trump and Vice President (Pence) into the church — there was absolutely no way possible, standing in line, people couldn’t get through. Which is fine, we understood that because of the level of security that’s going on here. But at 5:30 this morning, we could not get our cellphones to work in the city, I think they had shut it off.” How much do you love this honor Michele and her husband received? Listen below:
