I would totally watch the hell out of this.

Courtesy of Joe Conason's Facebook page:

This is reportedly from a woman named Mary Davis, who posted it on her Facebook profile: 

"You may have heard that the Trump people are freaking out that the performers for the Inauguration will be limited to Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. You know what would be really smart? If there was a televised "freedom concert" with huge celebrities like: Beyonc√© and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, et al., that aired at the same time as the inauguration. 

"Imagine how mad 'Tiny Fingers' would be. He would totally lose all the ratings. 

"And what if all the proceeds of the concert went to: the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, NAACP, CAIR, IRAP, SPLC, Environmental Defense Fund, Human Rights Campaign Fund, GLAD. 

"I would add that Alec Baldwin should MC the event playing Trump as he does on SNL."

Sounds like a plan to me.

Look there is NO way I am watching Trump's inauguration, so if there were something this entertaining to watch as an alternative I would be all over it.

And I bet just the idea that it would drive Trump out of his every loving mind would send the ratings through the roof.

  1. I would watch paint dry before I would watch anything to do with celebrating the short-fingered, narcissistic, thin-skinned vulgarian with tiny hands.

    That would be fantastic!!! Do you think any of the major networks would drop coverage of the inauguration to broadcast an event of this kind in its place?

    Driving tRump "out of his mind" would be a very short drive. This is an excellent idea, one that could raise lots of $$$ for certain organizations. Even if this does not materialize, I will not watch this orange ass being sworn in for a position he (along with is good buddy Vlad) STOLE.

    Well, Li'l Donnie's already out of his self-loving mind, but it would be great fun to watch him lose what little bit he has left!

    Remember all the great concerts and dance recitals and symphonies the Obamas hosted? Well, the WH will now host none of that. No "Hamilton" no "American Ballet Theater" no nothing. The Trumps do not do culture. They are as culturally ignorant as they are governmentally ignorant. America is a sad place now.

      I watched a couple of those Obama Whitehouse concerts with great enjoyment. But I have no t.v. reception where I live, so I can't watch this inauguration unless I go somewhere to see it, and my friends aren't into that, so, I won't be watching. Not the inauguration, or the alternatives. I'm okay with that. But I will miss the Obama's, and I did see Mr. O's 2009 inauguration, which was powerful.

      Sacrilege! The crime of stealing or desecrating that which is sacred.
      Profanation! To violate or treat with contempt or irreverence that which is sacred.

    How about replaying President Obama's inauguration in its entirety at the same time the Predator is being sworn in?

    Will Chief Justice John Roberts mess up the oath of office for Trump as he did for President Obama?
    Or will Trump not be able to remember the words of the oath as given by the Chief Justice?
    Will Melanie have the best seat on the podium, or will Ivanka take it? Which of them will be wearing Russian fur hats?
    Could we be so lucky as to have a blizzard in Washington on January 20, as we did for JFK's Inauguration? If so, Trump will blame it on terrorists.
    Keith Olbermann suggests that we never refer to this goon as "President Trump," but only as "Trump," since he won with a minority of the popular vote, and got his electoral college advantage by, it appears, illegal and traitorous means. Fine by me.
    Olbermann is worth following, if you want to keep your engine charged.

    Since Trump's transition team has locked up every public space in the capital, I propose resisters gather on side streets with bull horns and boo. Loud and Long. Peaceful booing. I might spend some PF to do that. Fun.

    Make it a telethon, all proceeds going to bankroll lawsuits and impeachment proceedings.

    I've already decided not to watch Trump's inauguration or any of his celebrations. I'd probably kill my tv. It would be great to have a focus that would attract an audience who would rather sit this one out.

    Trump Says He Doesn’t Want Stars At Inauguration Because He Doesn’t Like Fancy Parties

    ...Trump’s inaugural committee has been desperately trying to find stars to be featured at his big event,” one source said just last week. “They’re calling managers, agents, everyone in town to see who they can get and it’s been problematic. They are willing to pay anything.”

      And last week they denied that they were offering ambassador positions to stars who would perform.

    A huge charity concert with great artists at the same time as the inauguration would be wonderful. I would absolutely watch that concert and gladly contribute. I will certainly not watch the tacky show put on by Trump for his "coronation" as he sees it.

  21. Will any of the major networks even carry the inauguration? I'm thinking cable only. An the ratings will totally tank. He's got no one.

    Yeah, if they're smart there will be alternative programming people will watch just as a protest. Excellent idea. If they hustle, they can get something organized in a month. I don't think they'll have problems getting A-listers to sign on, especially if it is any sort of telethon.

    Why doesn't he tap wisconsin or states' he won, talent? Why doesn't he get his kind of people as people unlike him will not. His crowd are dummies and rich or people who use OPM. Omg I what did I call Kid Rock...I only like his singing voice.

    @ 2:34 PM - Hahaha... Trump fills his cabinet with out of touch billionaires but no clear thinking celebrity wants to have any connection with him in any way. Let (Poopy Pants) Ted Nugent be Trump's headliner for the inauguration. Sad.
