Ah! Two of my most favorite people! Mike Pence and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas will take part in an incredible moment in history next Friday, and we couldn’t be more proud to witness it!
Pence will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who will become the first black Supreme Court justice to ever swear in the president or vice president.
The chief justice of the Supreme Court has the duty of administering the oath of office to the incoming president, which means that next Friday, Chief Justice John Roberts will swear in President-elect Donald Trump.
However, the ritual of the inauguration allows the incoming vice president some latitude in who will administer the oath.
