Amid reports that the Trump camp is desperate to line up performers for his inauguration (some saying “they’ll pay anything” for headliners), and that everyone’s favorite
music legends trailer trash Kid Rock and Ted Nugent are the only “famous” musicians willing to perform for Trump, former Secretary of Treasury Robert Reich has a great idea about how to get the stars out to perform on January 20.
Reich took to his Facebook page, as he has done many times so eloquently in the past few months, to suggest this brilliant idea for Trump’s Inauguration. Reich said:
The Trump people are upset that the only musicians willing to perform at the Trump inauguration are Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.
Someone just suggested to me a televised “freedom concert” to air at the same time as the inauguration — with huge celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, and so on. Alec Baldwin MC’s the event, playing Trump as he does on SNL.
Presto. The Trump inauguration loses all the TV ratings. Basically, no one watches it.
Even better, the proceeds of the freedom concert go to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, NAACP, Common Cause, CAIR, IRAP, SPLC, Environmental Defense Fund, Human Rights Campaign Fund, MoveOn, Economic Policy Institute, Inequality Media, and GLAD.
What do you think?
This is the perfect idea! Take the spotlight off of Donald Trump on what should be the biggest day of his life. Nothing would get under his skin any more than that.
