President-elect Donald Trump has had a tough time finding A-list Hollywood celebrities and entertainers to perform, let alone show up, to his upcoming inauguration on January 20.
Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Governor and failed Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, recently ranted on her personal blog about how Hollywood’s being a bunch of “sissies” by not embracing Trump’s inauguration. Palin wrote:
“These same mega-celebrities, who would normally drool over an invitation to sing for the president, want no part of it.”
Palin goes on to contradict Trump’s transition team, who claimed that they have no trouble finding big name talent to perform at their boss’s inauguration. During her rant, she confessed:
“Trump’s inauguration team sought out some of the world’s greatest musicians, but nearly all of them have refused for fear of backlash or to stand against him politically.”
So far, Trump has only managed to book the “red hot” Mormon Tabernacle Choir to perform their greatest hits and 16-year-old Jackie Evancho who will be singing the national anthem.
And there are also reports that one of the acts scheduled to perform at the inauguration may be doing so under duress. The Rockettes, a legendary New York-based dance troupe, are slated to perform at the event. However, it seems that many if not most of the dancers do not want to participate. An anonymous dancer told Marie Clarie that many dancers feared for their careers if they turned down the gig, stating, “The majority of us said no immediately.” She also noted that there are no women of color slated to perform.
“It’s almost worse to have 18 pretty white girls behind this man who supports so many hate groups,”
Palin went on to whine about much it sucks being a “conservative in the public eye,” saying:
“Isn’t it amazing how ‘not cool’ it is to be conservative in the public eye? Either Hollywood is that far off – or we have so many sissies we have in the spot light too scared to stand for what they believe in!”
Palin goes on to mention Elton John and Celine Dion by name as celebrities she considered “sissies” for turning Trump down. She also floated the absurd and unsubstantiated claim that Andrea Bocelli wanted to perform but that:
“Sources say Trump encouraged [Bocelli] to back out so he wouldn’t lose fans.”
Like her mom, Bristol Palin has earned a reputation for being an empty-headed neocon hypocrite, who preached abstinence-only education across the U.S. to young women before becoming pregnant for the second time out of wedlock.
It’s amazing how being exposed as a hypocrite does nothing to prevent right-wing opportunists from seeking their next 15 minutes of coverage. Then again, look who’s going to be the next president.
