Honestly we might as well preempt all our normal news coverage just to report on the liberal meltdown over Donald Trump’s election victory and the plans for his inauguration this week.
Some of you might be saying, haven’t you already done that? And perhaps it appears that way, as we’ve already covered:
> Snoop Dogg’s profanity-laced message to anyone who’d even consider performing (not that it’s much of a surprise coming from him)
> Jennifer Holliday’s decision to back out — after she had said she would (caving to her fans in the LGBTQ community)
> Andrea Bocelli’s decision to drop out, after he received death threats (seriously liberals? He sings LOVE songs…in ITALIAN no less)
“My Way” composer and perma-tan crooner Paul Anka was reportedly planning to sing a version of his signature standard with new lyrics written especially for Trump, but now he’s backed out for (cough) “scheduling reasons.”It’s all getting a bit ridiculous — and shows now signs of abating.
However, thankfully there are a few voices of reason, and one of them belongs to country star Toby Keith.Entertainment Weekly reports, Toby Keith is responding to critics of his decision to perform for Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.
“I don’t apologize for performing for our country or military,” Keith said in a statement to EW. “I performed at events for previous presidents [George W.] Bush and [Barack] Obama and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO.”
Keith’s performance at a concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Jan. 19 was announced Friday.
And naturally, Keith was immediately trolled on Twitter.
3 Doors Down and Toby Keith are performing at the Trump Inauguration. Don't buy any more of their albums. #GrabYourWallet

@FullFrontalSamB County Fair level entertainment, appropriate enough for a carnival midway of an administration

It truly is breathtaking to observe this backlash against Trump. And just imagine…this is technically the HONEYMOON period! He’s not even officially in office.
