"Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam [D] took some veiled shots at President Donald Trump as he was sworn in as the 73rd governor of the commonwealth, ... telling a crowd gathered in Richmond, 'You don't have to be loud to lead," per CNN.

  • From Northam's inaugural address: "It can be hard to find our way in a time when there's so much shouting, when nasty, shallow tweets take the place of honest debate, and when scoring political points gets in the way of dealing with real problems."
  • "Virginia has told us to end the divisiveness, that we will not condone hatred and bigotry, and to end the politics that have torn this country apart."
