The first inauguration of Selina Meyer as the 45th president of the United States was held in a White House state room on January 24, 2016, following the resignation of President Stuart Hughes. The inauguration marked the commencement of Meyer's first term in office.
On January 23, 2016, months after announcing he would not run for re-election, Hughes announced he would be resigning to take care of his sick wife, who had attempted suicide one month earlier. Sitting Vice President Selina Meyer was in New Hampshire at the time, campaigning for the New Hampshire primary. Upon finding out that Hughes would resign, Meyer was flown back to D.C.
Meyer was inaugurated at noon on January 24, 2016, in a White House state room. However, during her swearing-in, Meyer accidentally said "preser... protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States," interrupted by Mike McLintock knocking over a lamp. The Speaker of the House demanded that she redo her oath correctly, which Meyer did the next day while campaigning in a factory in a New Hampshire.
The day after her oath re-do, Meyer lost the New Hampshire primary. One day later, the administration officially moved to the West Wing. Meyer, who was campaigning for president, would end up losing the 2016 presidential election.
