Our cretinous President-Elect Donald Trump is quickly learning exactly how little mandate he has among the American people, with whom he lost the popular vote by more than 2.85 million votes.
Another way Americans are making their voices heard against Trump is by maintaining pressure on performers to refrain from appearing at Donald Trump’s inauguration. Many performers, of course, need no budging and are taking a very strong stand against Trump. To this list of anti-Trump performers you can now add the famous Radio City Rockettes.
Trump thought he had turned the corner when it was announced that the Rockettes would be putting on a show for Trump, who has stated how much he likes to take women and “grab them by the pussy.” It turns out the actual Rockettes aren’t having it. According to a report, “[M]any of the Rockettes were outraged to hear that they were booked for the event.”
Stated Rockette Phoebe Pearl, “I usually don’t use social media to make a political stand but I feel overwhelmed with emotion. Finding out that it has been decided for us that Rockettes will be performing at the Presidential inauguration makes me feel embarrassed and disappointed. The women I work with are intelligent and are full of love and the decision of performing for a man that stands for everything we’re against is appalling. I am speaking for just myself but please know that after we found out this news, we have been performing with tears in our eyes and heavy hearts. We will not be forced! #notmypresident” Do you want all the Rockettes to boycott the Inauguration?
