Trump Adviser On Lack Of Performers For Inauguration: ‘This Is Not Woodstock’ (VIDEO)


The president-elect’s inaugural committee was reportedly trying to find A-list entertainers to perform at Trump’s big event. They were willing to ‘pay anything’ but Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn said Tuesday that it’s no big deal.

“Not at all,” Boris Epshteyn, the inaugural committee communications director, told CNN. “You know, this is not Woodstock. It’s not Summer Jam. It’s not a concert. It’s not about celebrities. As Donald Trump tweeted himself, it’s about the people. That’s what we’re concentrated on.”

Yes, Trump did tweet that during another Twitter meltdown.

Epshteyn also discussed the Women’s March on Washington which takes place the day after the Inauguration. It’s not just thousands of women who are expected to attend. Men are going as well. My fiancé and I will be there, for example. A lot of men are expected to participate.

Organizers for the March on Washington say the event will “send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights.”

Raw Story reports:

“As you know, the relationship between the president-elect and many female voters was more than contentious during the election,” CNN host Poppy Harlow reminded Epshteyn during a Tuesday interview. “How will he address the protest? How will he handle that?”

Epshteyn, however, said he refused to “accept the premise” that women opposed Trump.

“Women in overwhelming numbers voted for Donald Trump — not the majority of women, but we received a great amount of support from women in this election,” Epshteyn said. “We very much respect the First Amendment. And we understand that people choose to protest. As long as they do so within all laws, rules and regulations, they are welcome to do so.”

“We understand that people have concerns but we welcome them to our side,” he added. “We hope some of those will come to D.C., change their mind. Instead of protesting, come celebrate with us.”

Ha ha! In a word, no. Protesters are going to the event to protest the demagogue conservatives voted into power and not to ‘celebrate’ with Trump supporters.


As for entertainers for the Inauguration, the Trump adviser said, “The Rockettes represent the American people. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir represents the American people,” adding that other yet-to-be-named performers will also represent the everyday American. “And that’s what we’re concentrating on.”

We’re thinking Chachi or Ted Nugent will gladly pitch in. Or a skinhead band. Does the KKK have a band?
