Views

Q: During the taking the oath of office, Chief Justice Roberts inadvertently switched some words — you were trying to help him out there a little bit it seemed with your look.

THE PRESIDENT: We’re up there, we’ve got a lot of stuff on our mind, and he actually, I think, helped me out on a couple of stanzas there. So over all, I think it went relatively smoothly, and I’m very grateful to him.
