Rihanna wasn’t afraid to talk trash as she celebrated President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday.
The singer/designer/beauty mogul, 32, took a sly dig at Donald Trump while strutting her stuff in a new Instagram shot.
Ready for a fresh start, RiRi carried two bags of garbage and tagged the post #WeDidItJoe, a reference to the moment Vice President Kamala Harris called President Biden after their historic win.
Trash talk: Rihanna took a dig at Donald Trump as she took out the trash in a new Instagram post celebrating President Joe Biden’s inauguration
The Anti songstress proved even she could class up a trash run as she piled on the diamonds while slipping into a pair of pink peep-toe heels and patent leather opera gloves.
Putting her long legs on display, Rihanna skipped her pants and showed off a pair of black panties from her Savage x Fenty lingerie line.
And she sent a message with her tee-shirt, choosing a vintage top from 1990s punk label Nemesis Records that said ‘End Racism By Any Means Necessary.’
Continuing to throw shade in the caption, Rihanna added: ‘I’m just here to help.’

President Biden and VP Harris were sworn in Wednesday morning in an intimate ceremony on the West front of the Capitol Building, as is tradition.
Biden called his first day as President a ‘day of history and hope. Of renewal and resolve,’ but tempered his optimism later on as he told Americans there is ‘Much to repair. Much to restore. Much to heal. Much to build. And much to gain.
‘Few periods in our nation’s history have been more challenging or difficult than the one we’re in now,’ he went on before calling for ‘unity’ during these divisive times.
‘Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this: Bringing America together,’ Mr. President said. ‘Uniting our people. And uniting our nation. I ask every American to join me in this cause. Uniting to fight the common foes we face: Anger, resentment, hatred. Extremism, lawlessness, violence. Disease, joblessness, hopelessness.’

Security: Tens of thousands of National Guard troops have been deployed in the U.S. capital after law enforcement warned some extremist Trump backers were calling for more violence
This year’s oath of office was truly unlike any in years past.
The usual parades and parties were cancelled, both in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus and amid heightened security concerns after a mob of Trump supporters breached the Capitol two weeks ago, sending lawmakers into hiding and leaving five people dead, including a police officer.

As Biden officially became president, Trump had landed in Florida, heading to his Mar-a-Lago estate. Leaving the White House for the final time, Trump stopped briefly to speak to reporters, saying it had been the ‘honor of a lifetime’ to serve as President.
At Joint Base Andrews, he told a crowd of reporters that he would be back ‘in some form’ and before flying off on Air Force One, he told everyone present: ‘Have a nice life.’
