Bristol Palin Slams Celebrity ‘Sissies’ Who Won’t Perform at Trump Inauguration

Bristol Palin ripped Hollywood stars who won’t perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration next month.

“Isn’t it amazing how ‘not cool’ it is to be conservative in the public eye?” the daughter of former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin wrote on her blog on Wedsnesday. “Either Hollywood is that far off — or we have so many sissies we have in the spot light too scared to stand for what they believe in!”

Bristol Palin, whose mother was among the first prominent Republicans to endorse Trump’s presidential bid, also blasted celebrities for what she perceived as hypocrisy.

“If Donald Trump were still just a regular old billionaire and threw 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,” Palin wrote. “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.”

As TheWrap first reported, Trump’s team is struggling to book A-list performers for his inaugural festivities, with two talent bookers saying they were offered ambassadorships if they could deliver marquee names. The inauguration team has its sights set on top-tier talents like Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Aretha Franklin, and are willing to pay steep fees for the performers.

Trump’s team has managed to enlist 16-year-old former “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho to sing the national anthem. They’ve also booked the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and, yes, the Radio City Rockettes.

Several high-caliber performers have already publicly rejected requests to take part in the Jan. 20 festivities, including Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, Elton John and operatic singer Andrea Bocelli.

‘Morning Joe’ Blasts Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Team for ‘Pathetic’ Trump Tweet After Bomb Scare

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Willie Geist blasted Bill de Blasio on Wednesday, saying it’s “pathetic” that New York City mayor’s staff would politicize a bomb scare at Trump Tower.

Trump Tower was partially evacuated in a potential bomb scare on Tuesday afternoon but the suspicious package was just an unattended bag of toys and posed no threat. A member of de Blasio’s staff tweeted that he would send Trump’s transition team the bill for the cost to evacuate the building.

“It’s just pathetic. It’s just sad,” Geist said. “That we’ve reached that point where there’s a bomb scare in the lobby and you tweet something cute about it.”

Co-host Mike Barnicle chimed in, “It’s embarrassing for the de Blasio administration.”

According to the Washington Post, the lobby of Trump Tower is accessible to the public from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. under the terms of an agreement with the city, making securing the building a headache for both NYPD and the Secret Service. De Blasio has repeatedly complained about the cost of protecting the building.

Trump Tower, a 58-floor skyscraper in midtown Manhattan, serves as the residence of President-elect Donald Trump, as well as the offices for both his business and transition teams as Trump prepares for his inauguration on Jan. 20.

Trump was not in Trump Tower at the time of the evacuation. The president-elect has been spending the holidays at his Palm Beach, Florida, resort called Mar-a-Lago.

The joke that didn’t land well with the “Morning Joe” team came after Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer tweeted, “Back to work here at Trump tower after a false alarm. Thanks NYPD.”

No problem. We’ll send you the bill. https://t.co/mxbUqzgHds

Stephen Colbert Thumbs Nose At Donald Trump, Welcoming “Endangered Swamp Dwellers” To ‘Kennedy Center Honors’

“Good evening ladies and gentlemen, distinguished honorees, politicians, diplomats, endangered swamp dwellers,” CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert said at the top of tonight’s Kennedy Center Honors broadcast, setting the tone for the Donald Trump-drubbing to follow.
The names of those being honored this year would, in keeping with tradition, be enshrined on the theater wall behind him, Colbert said, “this wall that, again, Mexico has said they will not pay…

Rockette Speaks Out About Trump Inauguration Gig

An anonymous member of the world-famous Rockettes spoke to Marie Claire about the decision to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s upcoming inauguration and says the dancers learned about the news from friends.

“If I had to lose my job over this, I would,” said the Rockette, who is referred to as a pseudonym “Mary” throughout the story. “There is a divide in the company now, which saddens me most.”

Mary said she was blindsided by the news that she would have to perform for Trump, telling Marie Claire that she “found out through text messages.”

“They sent me screenshots of CNN, where the screen said: ‘Rockettes to Perform at Trump’s Inauguration,’” Mary told the magazine.

“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,” Mary told Marie Claire.

Mary explained that at first, the decision wasn’t optional, saying a colleague “felt she was being forced to perform for this monster.” Another dancer told Mary that, “I wouldn’t feel comfortable standing near a man like that in our costumes.”

Many of the dancers took to social media to express displeasure, but the union eventually sorted out the various contractual obligations for individual dancers.

“We took this very seriously and immediately contacted Radio City for a meeting to address this volatile situation,” the American Guild of Variety Artists told TheWrap last Friday. “This is always the first course of action in a labor-management issue or dispute. Fortunately, the company has agreed that ALL participation in this particular event will be voluntary. We are greatly relieved and hope to work with our members to inform them and alleviate the anxiety and fears that this has caused.”

The union went on to clarify that it “never ‘demanded’ that the Rockettes perform at the inauguration.”

Mary told the magazine “to her knowledge,” no women of color have signed up to perform at Trump’s event.

“It’s almost worse to have 18 pretty white girls behind this man who supports so many hate groups,” Mary said.

Carl Paladino Admits Wishing Death on President Obama Was ‘Inappropriate’

The New York co-chair of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign Carl Paladino issued an apology, sort of, for comments he made last week about President Obama and the First Lady that were published in Artvoice, saying he is “not a racist.

“I never intended to hurt the minority community who I spent years trying to help out of the cycle of poverty in our inner cities. To them I apologize,” Paladino said in a statement that he emailed to a local NBC affiliate.

“I publicly took responsibility for what I said and confirmed those were my answers, but believe it or not, I did not mean to send those answers to Artvoice. Not that it makes any difference because what I wrote was inappropriate under any circumstance. I filled out the survey to send to a couple friends and forwarded it to them not realizing that I didn’t hit ‘forward’ I hit ‘reply.’ All men make mistakes,” Paladino said.

Also Read: Trump Team Calls Carl Paladino’s Obama-Slamming Comments ‘Absolutely Reprehensible’

Last week, Paladino told local newspaper Artvoice what he wanted for Christmas when reporter Jamie Moses emailed local influencers an end-of-year survey.

“Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford [cow, sic]. He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to Valerie Jarret, who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihady [again, sic] cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her,” Paladino said.

He was then asked, “What would you most like to see go in 2017?”

“Michelle Obama. I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla,” Paladino wrote.

Also Read: Trump Inauguration Committee Will ‘Absolutely’ Announce More Performers

Paladino tried to explain his comments as part of the statement: “I received Jamie Moses’ emailed survey at an emotional moment after I had just listened to Obama’s statement that he regretted the slaughter in Aleppo that, in fact, resulted from his failed and cowardly foreign policy. His policy is to look the other way while innocent people were murdered and starved. I view Barack Obama as a traitor to American values. We don’t stand down and leave soldiers to die on a battlefield when we can send help. We don’t lie to the American people and the parents of our fallen to get re-elected. Obama has not led America to a better place by disregarding the rule of law and standing with his elitist brethren as above the law; nor has his wife Michele Obama who told our children and the world after the election that now there is no hope for America.”

“Carl’s comments are absolutely reprehensible, and they serve no place in our public discourse,” Trump’s transition team said in a statement.

Despite the comments, Paladino doesn’t plan on leaving his gig on the Buffalo School Board over the backlash.

“No, I’m not leaving the school board, not when it’s time to help implement the real choice elements of Trump’s plan for education reform.  I’ve spent years dedicated to the mission to defeat the thought that the liberal progressive elitist establishment can continue to hold our minority children captive in the cycle of poverty simply to provide their voting base. I don’t intend to yield to the fanatics among my adversaries. I certainly am not a racist,” he said to conclude the statement.
