Liberals have accused Trump of being a danger to gay Americans. That’s unfair because Trump was the first Republican to ever address LGBT issues at the Republican convention. He also has said that he wants to protect gay people from radical Islam.
No we learn the gay musician Elton John is going to perform at his inauguration.
Elton John will perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration, claimed a key adviser, who championed the billionaire as the first president ever to enter the White House with a “pro-gay rights” stance.
“Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the mall for inauguration,” Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the presidential transition team executive committee as well as a vice chair of the presidential inaugural committee, told BBC’s “HARDtalk.”
Having the “Rocket Man” singer perform, he continued, “shows our commitment to gay rights.”
Anthony Scaramucci is a member of Trump’s transition team and talked about this with the BBC.

It promises to be a great show! But of course, what else would you expect?
UPDATE: The New York Times claims this is false:
No, Elton John Will Not Perform at the Trump Inauguration
Elton John will not perform at Donald J. Trump’s inauguration in January, contrary to a report from a member of Mr. Trump’s transition team, a publicist for the singer said on Wednesday.
Anthony Scaramucci, the member of the presidential transition team, made the claim during an interview on the BBC program “HARDtalk” this week. But Fran Curtis, the publicist for the British singer, issued a strong denial by email:
“Incorrect. He will NOT be performing.”
