I do worry about Congress though." SOUNDBITE: Edward Burne, New York Resident, Saying: "The most uninformed people - we're living in a Kim Kardashian society. He's not a true president.

SOUNDBITE: Curtis, a commuter saying: "It's a beautiful picture. Can't you tell? Look at his daughters, his wife. He looks very victorious."
