Around 12pm ET today, Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States—but not before a performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir accompanied by the U.S. Marine Band.
The choir serenaded spectators attending the inauguration (and those of us online watching the livestream) to the tune of “America the Beautiful,” marking their seventh performance at a presidential inauguration event.

And while audiences earnestly awaited the four minutes for Trump to be sworn in to office, we couldn’t help but notice few things about the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s members: They’re all impeccably dressed, nearly entirely white, and almost too easy to poke fun at.

I’m sure that the members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir are relatively nice, kind people. Or maybe a handful of them are completely liable of going off on minimum-wage customer service employees. Only the memes will tell.
