The times, they are a-changing. Selena Zito:

Why Trump’s Inauguration Day will be better without celebs

There will be no Beyoncé wiggling on stage. Bruce Springsteen, Ariana Grande, John Legend and Elton John aren’t going to be there either. In fact, pretty much every A-lister from the Hollywood and entertainment world has decided to skip Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday. And whether or not Trump himself is wrestling with that public rejection, the people who voted for him are not.

The “blue-collar billionaire” will have a day that’s more befitting the working-class base that put him in the White House: one without fanfare or celebrities or fancy couture (although his wife, Melania, will most certainly be dressed to the nines). Call it the People’s Inauguration, one that celebrates the ordinary American, and that suits his fans just fine.

“They could have zero entertainment at the inauguration, and I really don’t think for one minute that it would matter,” said Leslie Rossi, of Youngstown, Pa., a state that shocked the nation when it switched from blue to red on Election Day.

[…]

“You know what they say about inaugural balls? You dance with the one who brought you there,” said Patterson, who is attending the swearing-in ceremony with several friends. “Donald Trump is dancing and celebrating with the people who put him in the White House. Let Hollywood stay home or take a knee this time around. We will be fine.”

Trump’s events will be smaller than Barack Obama’s — and will lift up the little guy, said Boris Epshteyn, director of communications for the Presidential Inaugural Committee. Our next president will have just three official inaugural balls, down from the 10 separate balls for Obama’s 2009 inauguration. “He will also continue the official Commander-in-Chief Inaugural Ball — a tradition started by George W. Bush, but he will expand that ball to include first responders like firefighters and police officers as well as veterans, military families and wounded warriors.”

The traditional parade — including high school marching bands, 4-H drill teams and the Boy Scouts — from the US Capitol to the White House is also being cut back. It has been shortened from two-and-a-half hours for Obama’s last swearing-in to just one hour for Trump. Tom Barrack, chairman of Trump’s inaugural committee, said “one of the biggest complaints people have about the inauguration is that the parade is too long and everyone is cold. The parade route is 1½ miles, it can be freezing cold and [the crowd] has been waiting since 6 a.m.”

Barrack added that the parade will celebrate the armed forces: “There is going to be more military presence. There’s going to be more participation. There’s going to be an aircraft for the first time in a long time. You’re going to have a better parade in a shorter period of time.”

Barrack adds that Trump isn’t that interested in receiving adulation, but would rather focus on getting things done. “It’s mostly about America getting back to work. At the end of the day, that’s his message. It’s not about the coronation event for him. He’s saying, ‘I told you what I was going to do, let me get back and do it and judge me in the next 100 days or 200 days or 300 days.’ That’s what it’s about. It’s not about how good of a party he can throw.”


Donald Trump may not be the President America wanted, but he’s the President we need.

  1. Apparently some people believe that a POTUS isn’t legitimate until he/she receives the blessing of Hollywood.

    • lyn says:

      If Trump is having more military people in the parade, he will be compared with Putin.

      • Lulu says:

        I guess he should have tried harder to get some twerkers to perform on the swearing in platform so he would not be compared to a genius level, super-nationalist, anti-globalist nightmare to the world elites. Maybe in 2020. Or possibly a twerking “brigade” from the coast guard or something for the next inaugural.

    • Constance says:

      I’m thrilled Hollywood is absent but it must be killing them to see the show go on without them. So Hollywood is basically punishing Trump and us by not making themselves the center of attention. I say Great!!

    • swanspirit says:

      Or, one reason I won’t live in Florida. Mini dinosaurs are still maxi predators.

      • Lulu says:

        There are massive predators around here if you go off into the wilds deep enough. Huge feral hogs and gators but it is low areas that are not suitable to live in. We kill ’em if they get too close to towns. Why don’t they trap or shoot that sucker? It looks like a dog, calf, or kid eater.

        • I wouldn’t get that close. Them critters can move fast over short distances.

        • swanspirit says:

          I think it lives in a protected wildlife area. I think the tourists are snacks.

          • Lulu says:

            Then the idiots videoing are at their own risk. Some French woman posed with an alligatior or swamp creature in SE Asia and it bit her ass off. Literally. Funny not funny. She had her back next to a crocodile for a f’ing selfie.

          • elliesmom says:

            Crocodiles are a lot more aggressive than alligators. Alligators will eat you if they’re hungry. Crocodiles kill for sport.

          • taw46 says:

            I worked at Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. We would see big gators like that during their mating season. They would come out of the deep brush and appear near the buildings at KSC. But em is right, they are not aggressive. They would only attack if hungry or if you got too close to the babies. They are fascinating to watch, I was able to do that for 10 years. But mostly from the bus. 😉 I would never want to get too close. And yes, they are extremely fast when they want to be. Mostly they just sun themselves.

            In all the years Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center have existed, no employee has ever been attacked by a gator.

          • mcnorman says:

            Can we send Barry and Moo down there? Damn, that would be one nice snack.

          • lateblum says:

            McN, You’re assuming those critters have no taste. I think they’re are possibly discerning enough to know eating an Obama is akin to a suicidal act. They don’t want them (the Obama’s) either. lol.

  2. 1. Trump supporters have jobs
    2. Republicans aren’t organized like Democrats.
    3. Most Trump supporters live too far away from Washington DC to ride a bus.

    • Lulu says:

      And a lot of us are just going to watch on tv and then go out and have a very nice lunch. We are going to rather nice “fish” house. Oyster po boy and fried pickles for me and probably red fish and beer for hubby to toast the new president. I am looking forward to it. And a bunch of crybabies getting their money cut off is not going to phase us. Fuck them.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Most of us are paying our own way too. The reason I got a hotel near the White House so I can walk to everything. Will all those buses be parking at RFK stadium? Good luck getting to the mall from there via public transportation.

      • Lulu says:

        I don’t think it is going to turn out for the protesters like they think it is. The proggies are good at talking but not so much doing especially in big numbers. There will be some nasties but they are being exposed. This stuff is backfiring.

      • kanaughty says:

        The parking lots are in weird places on the edge of the mall in dc which means even normally you can walk miles from one end to another. That’s not even counting that the SS will probably close off these normally used lots for heightened security purposes. We parked under some weird hotel near the holocaust museum and that was a trudge in itself to the air museum and the native american museum for example. So i don’t know if these protesters will realize just how far the security boundary will be placed beyond the normal parking areas. that with the extra security cordon, it will be a lit harder to get together once in to do their protests and turn them into riots. Because we all know a riot is what they really want.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Map looks quite restricted.

        • Constance says:

          I was in Wash DC last September and I was shocked at how big the area around the government is. I took the subway and got off in the middle of the government buildings and my Fitbit said I walked over 20,000 steps a day and i was trying to limit my walking. They should just give the protesters the run around and wear them out before the march starts.

    • MirandaB says:

      Another reason is the promise of violence. I’d rather hang out with that giant alligator than get NEAR DC this week.

  3. Lulu says:

    I’m tired of “celebrities”. All of them really. Most are famous for being famous. A few are talented in a rather narrow way I guess. And they are often shockingly dumb. Not ignorant which can be remedied but to the bone dumb. All of this shit they are doing is virtue signalling for attention. They never actually DO anything GOOD except for themselves and their PR reps. They are click-bait to up their profiles for parts, or to sell tickets, or “buzz”. They are morphing into terrorists who share some of the same tactics. They “terrorize” anyone who doesn’t agree or crosses them. Like ISIS. Shut up or “We keel you!”. And notice their tactics to up their profiles are not working. Their tv shows, movies, music, etc is NOT selling like hotcakes. In fact a lot of them are failing at this virtue signalling as PR and marketing.

    • swanspirit says:

      Most of them are shockingly stupid. And they live in a bubble of wealth and privilege that they usually hide, or try to. Then they have the gall to talk down to their “fans” on social responsibility. Between holidays on the Mediterranean, and their private islands, they stop by late shows to p!ug their latest movie. It’s all formulaic; and then they want to preach to us? No thanks.

    • blowme0bama says:

      I honestly don’t think there’s very much talent, at all, involved in “acting”. Anybody could do most of it. About the only thing that would be difficult would be crying, but hell, Obama did it for one of his gun control pleas so it could be very hard. Must be a trick to it.

  4. Watching San Andreas right now. Despite 50 years of strict building codes and earthquake retrofitting of old buildings, SF basically disintegrates when the quake hits.

    • Lulu says:

      SF is built on very bad “dirt”. The soil is unstable even without an earthquake. There is nothing to support anything of any size and it shifts all over the place with any seismic movement. A big part of the city is landfill from the 19th century when they needed some more flat land for warehouses, etc. My grandfather was a civil engineer for an oil company a very long time ago in SF for a few years and everything they built there for shipping, portage, etc was “temporary” because of the instability of the “dirt”.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    It seems Dems gave Lincoln a headache too.

  6. Dora says:

    “Donald Trump may not be the President America wanted, but he’s the President we need”.

    He is the president THIS American wanted from the beginning.

  7. Dora says:

    • Lulu says:

      Because he is having a tough time ‘transitioning”. I bet he has a very tough time of it when he gets out. If everyone with a mental illness was let out of jail we wouldn’t even need jails. Just sentence them to group therapy.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Are Joe and Mika officially an item now ?

  9. Dora says:

    I would love to get rid of this mayor, except if he is replaced by Hillary. I really don’t know which one would be worse.

    “Although the Georgetown administrators claim that students are permitted to host friends and family during inauguration weekend, they advised against hosting individuals that they didn’t know.

    “For your safety and the safety of your fellow residents, you are discouraged from inviting guests, with whom you are not familiar, to stay with you,” the statement reads.” http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/01/17/georgetown-asks-students-to-stop-offering-dorm-space-to-inauguration-protesters/

    LOL. Uber lib universty encourages this idiocy until the loons and anarchists show up to squat on their property. Reaction of the administration: Oooh! Cooties! I guess they will have to throw some extra money into student health services for the increase in STD. Will some drop out and run away with the protest circus? Cause and effect bites again.

    • Lulu says:

      They “thought” the student loans were “free money” too until they had to pay them back and had shitty or no jobs.

    • kanaughty says:

      This was awesome!

      • kanaughty says:

        I think about how life is about choices. Paying for a kid’s college in 18 years was another reason we chose not to have kids, so i damn well don’t want to be made to pay for some stranger’s kid’s college. That kid is their responsibility, not mine. I will continue to send in donations to my college’s scholarship program though where a kid has to prove they really want to accomplish something in finishing college.

    Who is this guy and should Donald trust him? He’s on the transition team and will get ValJar’s old post of “Director of the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs”

    http://freebeacon.com/issues/trump-adviser-sells-hedge-fund-former-obama-adviser/

    A top adviser to President-elect Donald Trump sold his hedge fund on Tuesday to a company run by a former top aide to President Barack Obama.

    New York financier Anthony Scaramucci, who is in line for an advisory post in the Trump administration, announced the sale of his SkyBridge Capital on Tueday to a pair of companies, RON Transatlantic Advisors and HNA Capital of New York.

    RON’s executive team includes partner and vice president Reggie Love, Obama’s personal aide during his time in the Senate and the White House.

    Bloomberg News reported that the Washington D.C.-based RON already owned between 5 percent and 10 percent of SkyBridge, a “fund of funds” with roughly $12 billion under management.

    Scaramucci referred questions to a SkyBridge spokesperson, who did not immediately respond. Efforts to reach Love were not successful.

    Scaramucci revealed the SkyBridge sale during remarks at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday. He is expected to be a liaison between the Trump White House and both state and local governments and the business community.

      She is just a sad eyebrowed stooge. She blah-blahs and virtue signals. Most of it doesn’t even make sense. And she is an accomplished arse licker. Now she can move back to Ireland.

    • blowme0bama says:

      I’ve always suspected “she” is a tranny.

      • Lulu says:

        I remember reading a “bio” of her in some magazine. She has/had a brilliant mother (physican) married to a drunk dentist who took her to bars where she (as a tiny child) crawled around on the filthy floor while being entertained by other drunks and her father talked big about “issues” like a drunk blowhard doofus does. Her mother couldn’t take it any more, left the drunk, and married a brilliant physician colleague who rescued them from the drunk. They moved to the US and her father never showed up to visit when they were back in Ireland seeing relatives and she was so disappointed. The father drank himself to death. She thinks as a child she could have rescued him or something. And she resents her mother and brilliant step-father and doesn’t see that they saved her. Like Obama they both have this weird fantasy about drunk, bum fathers. She also always sides with the wrong side because the baddies just can’t help it. She is not very bright.

            Unfortunately this pathology is not that uncommon. Some grow out or get therapy and stop and some don’t. It is a child’s guilt over something they have no control over and it is a terrible thing to do to a child. It is horrible abuse and warps them.

          • lateblum says:

            Yes. I agree. And having seen this too many times, it was probably wrong of me to make a semi-joke about it. Thanks for reminding me of the people who do suffer from this distorted reality and the effects on their already fragile lives.

          • blowme0bama says:

            Yeah, kids can have it tough, but they need someone to make them get their shit together. Can’t blame Mommy & Daddy at 30 years of age. You’ve got the life you make of it from that point, at the latest.

    • swanspirit says:

      Are they going to stand in front of 200,000 bikers ? I would like to see that.
      My son worked for Securitas security, and worked the inauguration for GW Bush. He was part of security for the ballroom, escorting VIPs, and was liason for the Secret Service. He was one of two out of the entire detail with an all access pass. He said he would like to see some of those protesters try some of those actions. He said it would be “interesting”.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I would think twice before trying anything at the Press Club. They and the building owners will not take kindly to stupidity run amok. Plus it is inside the no go zone for crap. That would be federal charges. It would have been nice to give a local business the opportunity – but I think the move was best for everyone in the end.

      I do think a lot of it is hot air to try and keep people away so they can claim nobody wanted to come to DC for Trump. They just do not understand that map showing all those red counties.

      I remember thinking after gay marriage became recognized, what next on the LGBT grievance agenda? First thing that popped in my head was decriminalizing pedophilia. So Pizzagate isn’t really a stretch for me. California already took a baby step in that direction.

      Whatever happened to that guy who shot up that Comet Pizza place? Sure took the scent off earlier investigations.

  23. Somebody says:

    So question have any of you ever watched an inauguration because of whatever Hollywood star might be performing? Quick, name a star that performed besides Beyonce since her picture is at the top of the post.

    It just isn’t important to me and never has been. I tune in to see the swearing in and also to see what the new first lady is wearing. Same with the balls, basically just want to see what the first lady is wearing and see the first dance. Beyond that any and all of the concerts, balls, etc., are purely for the entertainment of the people that ventured to DC for the inauguration. Those people by and large come to see the POTUS sworn in, the POTUS and first lady are the stars, everything else is tangential.

    I don’t think I’ve ever watched the pre-inauguration concert, which btw is a new thing. I take that back, I remember tuning in to hear Fleetwood Mac when Clinton was inaugurated……OY! Point being it all fades into the background. I seriously doubt any of us could name who sang the national anthem or who performed at various inaugurals without looking it up.

    In my opinion all the threats, black listing, etc., says far more about the left than it does about Trump or his supporters. Those folks simply don’t understand irony.

    As for the parade being shortened, praise be!! I like a good parade as much as the next person but I lose interest in the inaugural parade it’s simply too long. If this one truly is only going to be an hour then I may watch the whole thing. I know it’s a chance for local bands and what not to perform……great, cool, wonderful……less is more!

    As for your statement Klown about Trump maybe not being the POTUS America wanted, but the one America needs, I agree. I think that was always the message being sent when he closed his rallies with The Stones song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”.

    • taw46 says:

      I agree with you, I do not care about any entertainers who may perform at Inaugural events. I have always watched the Inauguration when I am able to (not working), no matter which party won. To me, it is the history, the peaceful transfer of power which is so unique to our country. Always on C-Span, because they point out facts about past inaugurations, presidents.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think it’s safe to believe those celebrities whinging about refusing to perform were never invited in the first place. Beyonce? Com’on, she sings and dances to cop hating lyrics. 😛 The other refuseniks were all partying at the Obamas last week, now I’m thinking that was a bribe.

    • I have never watched an entire inauguration. I have seen clips and pics. Usually I was working.

      • lateblum says:

        Me, too. Working, that is. This will be the first inauguration since Gosh, maybe, Carter that I haven’t been at work. I don’t know if I even saw Carter’s inauguration. I watched
        Reagan’s ball to see what Nancy was wearing. But I didn’t see the coverage of the inauguration.
        Like Somebody said earlier, I watch the balls for the gowns FLOTUS wears. This time I am watching as much as I can. I had hoped to go to Trump’s Chicago other to do so. But I now have to substitute for the other granny nanny and can’t be that far from immediate response if needed. The hotel is at the very least, one and a half hours from gbaby’s school and any emergency. Too far away.
        Still I’ll watch as much of the day’s celebration as possible. And the wine is for that night.
