Celebrities Acting Like Whiny Petty Cry-Babies Over 2017 Trump Inauguration
Left wing celebrity sour grapes knows no bounds. (Reminder: I’m neither a Trump supporter nor a Trump hater.)
Celebrities are saying they will refuse to perform at Trump’s upcoming inauguration.
The last I saw, Trump is shooting back that he doesn’t want any “A-List” celebrities at his inauguration anyway.
Here are links about the whole ordeal:
“The Blaze” commentator Tomi Lahren told Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday that many liberal Americans “fail to understand that Donald Trump will be our 45th president, that he will be inaugurated on January 20.”
Lahren was reacting to reports that a number of performers fear a backlash from left-wing fans if they perform at Trump’s inauguration next month. After opera singer Andrea Bocelli met with the president-elect on Friday, some fans started a “Boycott Bocelli” campaign on social media.
“It’s … the same thing that we saw in the election,” Lahren told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. “‘Oh, you’re a Trump supporter? You must be a racist. You must be a bigot. You must be in a basket of deplorables.’ We saw that, we’re still seeing it.”
Lahren also compared the reaction to Bocelli to criticism from the “unloving and intolerant left” of rapper Kanye West, who also met with Trump last week.
“The tolerance is really one-sided,” Lahren said, “because they seem to be pretty accepting when their narrative is pushed, but as soon as Kanye West ventures over to the other side, that’s somehow unacceptable.”
“Time and time again, we see this and [it’s] not just meeting with Donald Trump, mind you,” Lahren added, “it’s meeting with anyone … that’s got a conservative worldview. They don’t like that, they don’t want theirs to be mixing with ours. It’s amazing.”

The temper tantrum from celebrities who cannot get over the fact that Donald Trump is going to be the next president continues.
Word broke on Thursday that while Trump is having issues securing top talent to perform at his inauguration, some are planning a concert to go against it.
Concert promoter Mark Ross has a “We The People” concert in the works to go head-to-head with the inauguration, Politico reported.
Ross, who is the son of the late Time Warner CEO Steve Ross, is planning to hold the concert in Miami on Jan. 20.
A large-scale concert is being organised to compete with Donald Trump’s inauguration day, according to reports.
Democratic concert promoter Mark Ross, son of the late Time Warner CEO Steve Ross, is reported to be putting together a “We the People” concert to take place in Miami on 20 January 2017 — the day Mr Trump is due to be sworn in as President.
… According to Politico, sources involved in the organising of the event said: “The talent is banging on our doors to do this.”
It comes amid reports that very few acts are flocking in the same way to perform at Mr Trump’s own inauguration day concert.
Mr Trump originally wanted Elton John for the gig, but the singer swiftly ruled himself out, while Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli recently “backed out” from performing at the ceremony, saying there was “no way” he would take the gig.

President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday secured the Radio City Rockettes to perform at his Jan. 20 inauguration — but at least one dancer was not happy with the decision.
Rockette Phoebe Pearl said in an Instagram post Thursday night that she was “embarrassed and disappointed” to appear at the event.

Donald Trump says he wants “the people” to attend his presidential inauguration, dismissing the “so-called ‘A’ list celebrities” who he claims are seeking tickets to the Jan. 20 event.
On Twitter late Thursday, Trump is slamming the celebrities who supported the campaign of his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, saying, “look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING.”

Star power at the inauguration is no concern of the man who went from getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to becoming the 45th president of the United States.
“The so-called ‘A’ list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!”, Trump tweeted Thursday evening.
In stark contrast to the celebrity parade that was Hillary Clinton’s campaign — which featured performances by the likes of Katy Perry, Beyonce and Jay Z — Trump’s own run was noticeably lacking in star power.
Despite boasting many relationships with famous people throughout his career as a billionaire businessman and star of “The Apprentice” television series, Trump has often run afoul of the Hollywood left since entering politics. The celebrities who appeared at the Republican convention were largely past their prime, like actor Scott Baio.
If you are new to this blog:
I did not like either 2016 Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton OR Donald Trump.
Though I am moderately right wing, I didn’t care for Trump, due to his sexist commentary that was publicized by the media. On the other hand, I do not share the left wing’s rabid, unhinged hatred or paranoia of Trump, either.
I am generally not supportive of left wing celebrities who use their platforms to lecture the rest of America about politics, who publicly rudely talk about right wingers, or who try to sway political outcomes. I wish entertainers would be happy with their fame and money and shut up about politics in public.
Not only should celebrities generally refrain talking about politics in interviews, but they should refrain from Tweeting, Instagramming, or using other social media to bash right- wingers. Right wingers comprise part of your audience, you liberal celebrities – remember that.
