'Bad Lip Reading' reveals the true oath of office

They've studied the video of Inauguration Day and deciphered what was really said

Donald Trump's been our president for nearly a week – and the folks at Bad Lip Reading evidently spent that time analyzing the video to decipher what was really said on Inauguration Day.

They came up with some revelations – who would've guessed that the gift Melania Trump bestowed on Michelle Obama was actually pretzels?

But we do solemnly swear ... that the oath of office has never been interpreted quite this way.

"Bad Lip Reading" has been spoofing political events, movies, and sports on their YouTube channel for years, but their treatment of Trump's inauguration looks like it's becoming a breakout video for them.

This story is part of our Best of the Web section – which is just cool stuff we find online and want to share with you.
