Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah “I Can See Russia from My House” Palin, doesn’t think much of Elton John refusing to participate in Donald Trump’s inauguration. In a blog post, she runs down Elton and ten other entertainers who have have been caught up in this controversy. (For the record, young Bristol claims to have never heard of the Chainsmokers, a band with one of the biggest global hits of the year. “Closer” is just shy of 1 BILLION YouTube views.) The only praise is for Jack Evancho, the 16-year-old America’s Got Talent also-ran who will sing the national anthem.
The entry starts like this:
If Donald Trump were still just a regular old billionaire and threw a party at Trump Tower in New York City, celebrities would be lined up out the door, and the most famous artists would be pining for a chance to perform. But because he will be inaugurated as the next Republican president in January, these same mega-celebrities, who would normally drool over an invitation to sing for the president, want no part of it.
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.
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!
