Performers for Obama's inauguration? Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Alicia Keys etc. And for Trump? 3 Doors Down, Toby Keith... very telling.

Not in the slightest. I'm referring to the backlash Nicole Kidman received from director Joss Whedon or Steve Harvey or the B-street band etc..The liberal elites do not serve as the one and only legitimate mouthpiece for all of the American people. That's not diversity.

There were more performers slated but backed out last minute due to threats and pressures by liberal elites. Decent, hardworking, talented professionals had their business reputations and dealings tarnished and threatened for voicing any support even bipartisanship. On a positive note, today Steve Wynn pulled all of Tom Fords goods from his hotels after TF's vocal disrespect of FLOTUS.

You're right. Real Americans and not your typical sanctimonious Hollywood Leftists. Obama had Springsteen. Typical clueless hypocrite who lives on a "farm" in Jersey. Yup, he keeps a couple of goats and chickens around so he can qualify paying a lower rate of property taxes then the hoi polloi and people like you who slave away at an investment bank only to have half their bonus confiscated.

@Barclays as a female I think the liberal elite need to build a bridge and get over it. Their dialogue of "not my president" and lack of allowable discussion that goes against their view is exactly why trump won.

You go Barclays female. As a white male (and not the privileged kind, thank you) I can honestly say that everyone I know is post-racial. Only people I see bringing up race are liberals of the elitist variety. How ironic that it takes a white boy like me to care about school choice - the civil rights issue of our time - and applauds our president's nomination of Betsy DeVoss. At the same time, Obama was cutting choice scholarships appropriated by Repubs for poor, mostly black, inner city D.C. Kids. I guess it's all Hope and Change , but not when it comes to the teachers unions running monopoly hell holes.

What's telling? That elitist Entertainers are democrats? Trump should sue everyone that said no. Just like liberals sue bakers that didn't want to make a wedding cake for s lesbian couple because it violated their religious beliefs.

My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
