Did Barack Obama tell Bob Dole 'I bet Trump won't last long' at the inauguration?

Well, it's happened.

Donald Trump really is President of the United States.

It wasn't all a horrible dream or an episode of Black Mirror.

'The Donald' will be in the White House for the next four years - or will he?

There are already plenty of people predicting (hoping) that Trump will not see out his term, either because he will be impeached for some kind of impropriety - or maybe just because he will get bored.

The question is, is outgoing President Barack Obama one of those people predicting Trump's early downfall?

Channel 4 News correspondent Ciaran Jenkins posted this clip after Trump's inauguration ceremony in Washington, which sees Obama speaking to prominent US politician Bob Dole, who lost out to Bill Clinton in the 1996 presidential election.

Sky News journalist Max Preston reckoned it was "it" rather than "he"...

... and some suggested Obama was referring to the ceremony, rather than Trump...

But another observer disagreed:

Could the "it" be Trump's presidency? Or just all this madness we now find ourselves in?

We will probably never know.
