We Should Have Seen This Coming: A Competing Concert for the Presidential Inauguration

Donald Trump has been having a helluva time finding anyone to perform at his inauguration–and he may have another issue to contend with: counter-programming. From Politico:

EXCLUSIVE: DEPT OF THINGS PEOTUS WON’T LIKE — MARK ROSS, a concert promoter and the son of the late Time Warner CEO Steve Ross, is in the process of putting together a large-scale concert called “We the People” to DIRECTLY compete with Donald Trump’s inauguration. The organizers are looking to hold the event in Miami on Inauguration Day. “The talent is banging on our doors to do this,” according to a source familiar with the planning, although not a single act has been revealed as of yet. Ross is in the midst of lining up funding, according to a source.

Trump supporters are reacting exactly as you may guess.

According to this, butthurt leftists (mostly from Hollywood) are banding together to put on an event to take place in Miami during Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20. It’s going to be called “We The People” (oh, the irony) and they apparently have acts lined up out the door to be part of this “Loserpalooza” (that’s what Twitchy called it). However, they haven’t said for sure who is going to be featured.

Yeah, acts lined up out the door. Suuuuuuure….

Can’t wait to see how this pans out.
