Donald Trump's Sad But Predictable Inauguration Problems
Donald Trump is less than a month away from being sworn in as president and moving into the White House, but he is reportedly not happy.
His Thank You Tour is over, he can no longer bathe in the adulation of his fanatical supporters, which he loves to do sooooo much.
He is still fuming over Vanity Fair's brutal review of the Trump Tower Grill. And hoping they don't review this one.
And to make matters worse his boys are already in trouble, after trying and failing to auction off their sister, and then organizing a very expensive hunting expedition.
For the day after the inauguration...
Which had Big Daddy and his organization running for cover, like the wild animals of the world do when they see his savage sons coming.
Practically denying the boys are part of the The Family.
The Trump transition team released a statement Tuesday seeking to distance Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. from a fundraiser that offered a hunting trip with them — and a photo opportunity with the president-elect — to top donors.
“The Opening Day event and details that have been reported are merely initial concepts that have not been approved or pursued by the Trump family,” transition spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement.
But while that's embarrassing, what must be really bothering Trump is his failure so far to get any well known artists to perform at his inauguration...
They're all turning him down, or bowing out in a hurry.
Andrea Bocelli will not perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, Page Six has exclusively learned — because of backlash over the gig.
A source said that, by Monday, “Bocelli said there was no way he’d take the gig . . . he was ‘getting too much heat’ and he said no.”
So far the only acts his organization has been able to book is a 16-year-old named Jackie Evancho, an America's Got Talent starlet. And the old and dilapidated group the Kings of Chaos, who have spent much of their career performing in South and Central America.
The Trumpites were said to be interested in getting country singer Brad Paisley to perform, if only so he could play his song Kung Pao Buckaroo Holiday, which is an assault on political correctness. And would have driven the neo-nazis wild.
Until they found out Paisley was an Obama supporter who once compared the GOP to the WWE.
Both Elton John and Garth Brooks have turned him down, and as you probably know his attempt to recruit Kanye West just a few days after West was released from a mental hospital, didn't end well...
For good reason. Coming so soon after Kanye told an audience if he had voted he would have voted for Trump, and they started to throw things at him.
And although there are rumours Trump might be able to get the USA Freedom Kids to sing and bounce for him again...
Now that they have suddenly decided NOT to sue him.
In August, the group filed suit against the Trump campaign, alleging they had been denied promised appearances at future rallies and the ability to sell their merchandise. But the group has apparently had a change of heart since Trump won the White House.
The fact is the Trump Inauguration Team (TIT) is pretty close to scraping the bottom of the barrel.
So don't be surprised if they are forced to ask Victoria Jackson, the right-wing comedian to perform.
Because she may be washed up, but at least she would be singing from Trump's song book...
Or maybe not.
Gawd. I played that song on the porch last night, and all the raccoons in the neighbourhood started to howl.
So maybe if they want to give that inauguration some real star power, they'll just have to get Trump to put on a colourful costume and perform himself...
But one thing is for sure. When a country's artists don't want to perform for their president, there's something wrong with that president.
Trump is being delegitimized before he even takes office.
His will be both the worst AND the tackiest government the U.S. has ever seen.
And I very much doubt he will last his full term, before he's given the hook...
