The Inauguration of the US President as I understand it is usually a celebration of democracy. This one is a celebration of corruption and Russian hacking if not blackmail. I gather the entertainment will be 1 Rockette and a few runners up in talent shows. Not one major currently performing star wants to be associated with this POTUS. Not one. Respect to them all.
I gather the boycott is gathering pace, but have no idea how many will join it. I've heard about 20 Democrats won't go - that's barely going to be noticeable, I'd have thought.
It's a tragic day. It's the day America as a beacon of hope and democracy dies. It's the day intolerance, corruption, arrogance and nepotism take control. It's the day America takes on the worst aspects of African or Eastern European democracies and becomes the personal enrichment tool of the President and his family and close cronies.
It's the day America ceases to be a friend and an ally that can be relied on and becomes a toy of the rich like Russia.
It's the day the US hands leadership of the world to China.
But the real winner of the US election and brexit is Vlad Putin, who is laughing himself sick at both the US and the UK.
edit: Now I hear that Trump is sending random invitations to "person aged 27+" to attend his inauguration, a bit like the way he packed a recent press conference with staffers instructed to applaud everything he said. How completely contemptible and pathetic.
