30 Instagram Captions Ideas To Celebrate The Inauguration

Here's to new beginnings.

It’s nearly inauguration day (thank the founding fathers) and you know what that means? Joseph R. Biden is about to become the 46th President of the United States of America and it’s time to publicly post your political proclivities on the ‘gram. Or at the very least, acknowledge what we certainly hope will be a peaceful transition of power. If you want to add a little historical embellishment into your post or just cheer on the historic ticket, one of these 30 instagram captions will do the trick.

All the greats are here, from Benjamin Franklin to Millard Fillmore. (Okay, so maybe Fillmore doesn’t exactly qualify as great, but he had some smart things to say nonetheless.) And if those don’t float your boat, why not simply celebrate the fact that one Kamala Devi Harris is about to become the first female Veep ever. That alone should require all the party emojis available.

So go ahead and get all up in your patriotic feels. This special day comes but once every four years.
