Bristol Palin is following in her mother’s footsteps, embarrassing herself in a rant on Facebook. At the outset, remember Bristol never took a college class. She barely graduated from High School. She’s only worked when she wasn’t dancing in a gorilla costume, sporting a pink tutu, or having babies, for a Dr. Jack Me-Off.
Perhaps because this is the third/fourth/fifth time she is pregnant, and nobody cares, she is desperate for something to do or say that will bring media attention to her. Bristol has resorted to calling celebrities “sissies” suggesting that the celebrities are too scared to “stand for what they believe in.” The fundamental assumption of Bristol’s rant is that the 11 celebrities believe in the message of Donald Trump, but are afraid to stand up and admit that they support him. It never occurs to Bristol that perhaps the celebrities ARE standing up for what they believe in. They have traded a chance to get free publicity, to stand for their principles! Even Bristol’s post reveals that the entertainers view Trump with total disdain. Bristol’s first named celebrity who refused to perform was Elton John. She quoted Elton with his comment…
Thus far, the only “people” Trump’s team has secured to entertain at the inauguration are 16-year-old opera singer Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and the Radio City Rockettes—several of whom were reportedly not pleased to learn about their next gig. Jackie Evancho was only 10 years old when she was featured on America’s Got Talent, where she was the first runner-up.
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.

Perhaps the Trump inaugural staff should have opted for a different performer for the Trump inauguration. Jackie is too young for Trump, but of course Trump likes them young.
Just yesterday, the turmoil among the Radio City Rockettes was revealed. In an interview with Marie Claire, the dancer — who goes by the pseudonym “Mary” due to fear of retribution — explained that the Rockettes were blinded by the news that they were performing at the inauguration. Given the derogatory “locker room” comments Trump made about grabbing women by the pussy, and his controversial views on immigration and race relations, the Rockettes were rocked with conflict over the scheduled performance. “There is a divide in the company now, which saddens me most,” Mary explained. “The majority of us said no immediately. Then there’s the percentage that said yes, for whatever reason — whether it’s because they’re young and uninformed, or because they want the money, or because they think it’s an opportunity to move up in the company when other people turn it down.”
She added that no women of color have signed up to perform at the event. “It’s almost worse to have 18 pretty white girls behind this man who supports so many hate groups,” Mary said. “They’re going to be branded in history as one of those women. How’s it going to look?”
Mary’s interview comes in the wake of Rockette Phoebe Pearl, who reportedly wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post that she felt “embarrassed and disappointed” to potentially perform at the inauguration.
