It is ironic that President-elect Donald Trump, a genuine celebrity in his own right, is shunned by many famous folk who refuse to be civil as inauguration day approaches? Who cares? So asks Roger L. Simon, founder of PJ Media and an award-winning Hollywood screenplay writer, who thinks the lack of celebrities is a “great thing” and points out that Hillary Clinton lost the election despite Tinseltown’s best efforts.
“I’d like to see the inaugural completely celebrity-free. Wouldn’t that be refreshing? No endless parade of Kardashians or housewives, real or imagined. No supposedly funny parodies by Alec Baldwin. No endless yadda-yadda from Stephen Colbert. No words of wisdom from Barbra Streisand. Just a few patriotic tunes from a Marine Corps band and a man swearing on, yes, a Bible,” writes Mr. Simon in a recent op-ed for the news site.
“It won’t happen entirely, this celebrity-free zone — but it could be close and we should be thankful,” he adds. “On the positive side too, Trump has apparently decided to write his own speech and, more importantly, keep it short.”
The grassroots appeal has been part of the plan for sometime, however.

There is no reason for a celebrity to be there anyway. They are living in an alternative universe and do not deserve to be at OUR inauguration.
The problem with Cruz's comments is that they also apply to the leadership of the GOP... they didn't take the necessary action to IMPEACH Obama... or too bring to bear monetary policy to defund his offending actions. The GOP leadership is as responsible for the illegal acts of the Obama Administration as Obama.
It is time to hold ALL PARTIES responsible for the criminal ... yes, CRIMINAL conduct, of the Obama Administration and AG Session's first duty should be to pursue such government crime...with a vengeance.
We must not permit such unlawful conduct to go unabated or punished. Sen. Sessions appears to be just the man needed ... He has the temperament , resolve, and moral backbone, too go after the corruption... wherever it is found... in both political parties. We must realize that collusion and misprision of a felony... failure to act... is a crime also.
The folks who DO show up to perform at Trump's inauguration are likely ALREADY popular among US folks who VOTED FOR TRUMP!!! And just think of all the pain-in-the-a$$ libtard, Proglodyte, Hollywood WEASELS we WON'T have to suffer thru. THANKS, AGAIN, PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!
By the way... REPEAL OBAMACARE NOW. We need the jobs, NOW!!! I don't care if it's EVER replaced. Why? NOWHERE in Article 1 Section 8 of the US Constitution will you find the words "healthcare" or "medicine". So, unless we add a "healthcare amendment" to the Constitution, any form of healthcare provided by FedGov is UNconstitutional. If the VA is part of DoD, then it's OK.
It would probably be lip-synced anyway...
There are already SO many celebrities I boycott because of their politics, I certainly will NOT miss them at the Inaugural.
I believe Ted Nugent, & Kid Rock are playing so it will be patriotic REPRESENTING USA ALL THE WAY! Hollystupid the ones that need a scripts to talk walk, smile & Botox,brains, stuffing their cheeks, breast, and any other body part silicone in every place possible they even need Cults scientology to tell them what to DO! Lets see you have jennifer lopez insuring her Butt, beyonce & others trying to emulate White girls, black guys wearing black lipstick,All these plastic surgery FAKE morasses botox & stuffers need to lay down shut up & stay put. Life will change for them PRESIDENT TRUMP, wont be PUFFING THEM UP & KEEPING THEM RELEVANT ANY LONGER! HOW CAN ANYONE TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY CAN'T EVEN SING IN PUBLIC ALL LIP SINGING REALLY? If a real rock band tried that there would be HELL TO PAY!
What meaningful contribution to the most important inauguration of the next President, in our lifetimes, particularly after the dire 8 years of Obama, can mindless, decadent, immoral, unethical, lowly educated, self-important, self-serving readers of others words can these "celebrities" make? We need less show (Trump will give us all of that we might need) and more:
DRAIN THE SWAMP (tough dirty business - like losing weight - hard to do!)
LOCK HER UP (after 45 years in public view, skating on all manner of unethical, immoral and illegal activities, justice MUST BE DONE!)
CUT THE SIZE of an OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT, USURPING MORE AND MORE CONTROL OVER OUR LIVES!
The sooner Trump is in office, the BETTER! 11 more days and the freeloaders Obozo and Moochelle, will be out of office!
" I have never understood our obsession with celebrity culture. And if you don't think we're obsessed with celebrities, look at the top 10 searches on yahoo. As commentator puts it "we live in the United States of Entertainment.I don't get why so many people have such a strong desire-- need, even - to believe celebrities are benevolent, intelligent people with fascinating lives, and why Average Joes yearn to know everything about them. Personally, I regard celebrities the same way I do the kids who assemble my Big Macs. I pay them to perform a service, Whether it's constructing hamburgers, singing songs, acting in movies or shooting free throws, when they are finished, I'm finished with them .. I have no desire whatsoever to know more about whom they're dating, how they vote what kind of deodorant they use, what they name their pets. it's all irrelevant to me. I'm far more concerned with much more shallow, superficial things, like the pending debt crisis, how we're going to preserve Social Security -- and yes, what to do about the North Korean nuclear threat.Celebrities are just like anybody else. Most are average people with mundane lives. Having interviewed a handful myself, I can tell you that many of them have become arrogant and narcissistic from having everyone tell them how wonderful they are.."Written By Phil Bridges ................for the Idaho Statesman
