Supporters of president-elect Joe Biden had something to cheer about on Monday, November 23, as the former vice-president's official website went from ".com" to a ".gov" domain name hours after General Services Administration acknowledged Biden's win and began the process of a formal transition.

Biden simply tweeted, "http://buildbackbetter.gov" without any captions on Monday because it was pretty much self-explanatory. Even as President Donald Trump refused to concede the presidential race to Biden even weeks after the latter was declared the projected winner of the 2020 election, liberals celebrated the fact that their chosen candidate had finally taken an all-crucial step toward becoming the 46th president of the United States.

"Dot Gov Yes. The nightmare is ending," one wrote, while another remarked, "DOT GOV for all the quiet Republican politicians who didn’t say a word." A third commented, "Trump can now DOT GOV his way right the fuck out the White House." And someone else quipped, "Our years of Trump was so horrible that he has people excited about the unveiling of dot gov and I’m one of them." 

Memes poured in fast as "DOT GOV" trending got stronger on Twitter, quickly climbing to one of the top ones. "When you go from dot com to DOT GOV" said one of the memes in the trend. Another wrote, "Dot gov, everybody. Fifty-eight days till January 20." One more added, "That dot gov really slaps."

The next rejoiced, saying, "I’m sitting up in bed, smiling like a fool and laughing looking at all the happy tweets about Joe’s DOT GOV. This is a happy day, and dammit! We deserve it! #DotGov." Someone else tweeted, "You know you're president when you get your own dot gov domain." One more user wrote, "Dot gov is official. We only got two more months until the transfer of power is complete." Yet another person commented, "DOT GOV is a hell of a subtle flex." And one person said, "Be advised Objective Dot Gov has been reacquired Repeat Objective Dot Gov is secure Over."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

We previously reported that a letter sent by Administrator Emily Murphy on Monday, November 23, suggested that the GSA has informed the president-elect that the Trump administration is ready to start the formal transition process. This creates a way for Biden’s team to get access to briefings, office space, secure computers and other government services needed for the transfer of power.

The letter is also a first step taken by the administration to recognize Trump's defeat in the November 3 elections, according to CNN. In the letter, Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition and did not make a decision "out of fear or favoritism". "Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts," Murphy wrote. "I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination."
