First of all, other than The Radio City Rockettes and teenage singer, Jackie Evancho, confirmed performers - who cares?
A party is noted the night of the shindig, but the next day is forgotten, helped by aspirin and water, a couch and remote. Second of all, he's the president: he's won even if movie stars and singing divas defer to Hillary and Bernie. Lastly, despite main-stream media scoffing at the possibilities of Donald's unpopularity with people they drool over - the very fact that the main-stream media thinks this is noteworthy, means exactly that it isn't.
But, for sake of argument here's what Trump should do to turn this "disaster" into a Trump-triumph. CNN, MSNBC, Politico and other leftie advocacy media groups will try to make hay from now until inauguration of President Trump's inability to woo A-list singers to strut in sequins or satin or spandex. His presidency will lie in the balance. The world security balance-of-power will be threatened. His ostracism - all of which will be declared his doing and downfall – AND HIS FAULT - will mean that the United States, worldwide, will be shunned diplomatically and will be left stillborn at any birthing initiatives the United Nations may conjure up to make the world even more perfect so....Donald Trump do this:
Don't have an inauguration-party panoply. Forgo the evening circuit route of Official Ball dances. Stick to your knitting, stick to your tweeting; do the swearing in bit – The Oath of Office - as ordained by Article II Section I of the United States Constitution, show the public you are hard at work knowing (and glowing, if not showing it) that all Hillary backers will be trying to get a lust on for Hillary, backs to the wall, with Amyl Nitrate, and under threat at gunpoint. Granted, you would have had to disband your Inaugural committee you just set up on November 15th, and true the Chairman, Finance Co-Chairmen, followed by the 20 little Finance Vice-Chairs would have to find other ways to occupy their team, like getting plastered in the early PM but, so what?
There’s a bigger principle here:
Not partaking of inauguration drunk-fests will drive both Democrats and the main-stream media bonkers. Another tradition will have been sullied, another formality fouled. Another brick in the pre-presidential legacy wall will have been unceremoniously kicked out of place. The empire will be at risk, mother earth will have been politically poisoned, and it will be your entire fault, Donald T.
(For those, however, that have booked to visit Washington you can still have fun without the Trumpster around and about. You can tour the U.S. Capitol; check out the presidential pictures at the National Portrait Gallery; go slumming and visit - in an armored car - slum areas of the city...)
Where were we?
Basically, Donald himself should book from dancing with the also rans – it will clearly get under the Democratic Party, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, The Young Turks, Huffington Post, and Politico’s skin.
Which will drive them even crazier the next day.
And any good hangover deserves a pick me up.
