NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–January 16, 2017
What if you threw an inauguration and nobody came?
Is Donald Trump’s inauguration crowd going to be bad or the worst in modern American history? He’s only been able to draw a handful of D.C.-area wedding DJs and a handful of county fair musical acts. A growing list of congressional representatives have pledged to boycott the event and a D.C. council member says they’ve only received 200 bus applications (versus 1,200 for the protest march the very next day.)
But, perhaps the most telling sign this is shaping up to be an embarrassing disaster for Team Trump is the fact that only six days out from the event, Donald himself took to Facebook to record a message
begging offering free tickets to anyone who wanted to attend. If you make it through the ceremony, he’ll throw in a set of steak knives and you’ll be entered to win a complimentary trip for two to the luxurious Mar-A-Lago resort. (Okay, that last bit is not true, but it could be!) Watch below and read a sampling humorous responses to his plea. They are tremendous. The best. Bigly great. Feel free to add your own response in the comments.
Thanks for the invite but I’m getting my eyeballs scooped out with a spiky ice cream scoop and no anesthesia that day. So…Kinda have something better to do.
A president shouldn’t have to appeal and beg people to come. Donald, you have tired the Nation before taking office. Just hire people to act as fill ins and clappers!
I must send my regrets. Today we were here in Phoenix protesting the repeal of ACA, we are 63 and 73 years old. First time we have ever protested.
Next Saturday we will be here at the Women’s March, supporting Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, Women’s Health Care Rights, LGBT Rights, etc.
Enjoy your party!
I’d rather sit on my couch and stare at my ceiling until my neck cramps.
Release your tax returns, give us our healthcare back (or at least replace it, as promised), stop degrading the free press, and threatening our First Amendment, release your holdings and assets, come clean about your Putin connection, call off your right-wing dogs, and I’ll get 50 people to come with me.
You are fake news.
You are not legitimate.
You are an imbecile.
Go pay your people to clap for you.
