President Trump won’t give the Liberal Left a chance to heckle, insult and complain about his appearance at what used to be an apolitical event.
With dignity and class, president Trump has announced he will be sitting out the Kennedy Center Honors. And it’s not to be missed that Trump’s response is classier than anything you’ll hear from the honorees.
In fact, those associated with the event have gone out of their way to whine about Trump.
The Washington Post has the details:
“With the honorees in open revolt, and three of them — television impresario Norman Lear, dancer Carmen de Lavallade and recording artist Lionel Richie — declaring they would boycott or were considering not attending a White House reception to celebrate them, President Trump pulled the plug Saturday on his role in the festivities. This meant that, for the first time since the Honors were established in 1978, a President or a first lady will not be throwing the coveted pre-gala party at the White House for the winners, and will not attend the show — this year to be held Dec. 3 in the Opera House and broadcast nationally on CBS later in the month.
… Kennedy Center President Deborah F. Rutter and Chairman David M. Rubenstein went so far in their statement Saturday as to declare their relief at the president’s withdrawal. “We are grateful for this gesture,” they said, alluding to what the statement called the administration’s “graciousness.” Gratitude is not exactly the feeling one expects officials to express at such a moment, but perhaps the clarity of Trump’s decision eliminated for them the possible will-he-or-won’t-he press coverage and other potential problems in planning for the weekend.”
It’s about time the President snubbed Liberals first!
