Let's end our day on a hopeful note.

Courtesy of the Miami Herald:  

Robert Reich threw out an idea to his nearly 1.7 million Facebook followers this week that has a lot of people asking: How do we make this happen? 

In a Facebook post on Sunday, the former secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton noted the dearth of celebrities and musicians willing to participate in Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities. Many supported Hillary Clinton. 

So Reich is championing the idea that celebrities host an event of their own on Inauguration Day to give the official event, starring Trump, a run for the ratings. 

“Someone just suggested to me a televised ‘freedom concert’ to air at the same time as the inauguration — with huge celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, and so on,” Reich wrote. “Alec Baldwin MC’s the event, playing Trump as he does on SNL. 

“Presto. The Trump inauguration loses all the TV ratings. Basically, no one watches it.” 

I already posted about this "Freedom Concert" earlier last week, but now that Robert Reich is on board it has received significantly more attention.

Now don't be fooled by fake flyers like this one:

Things are not nearly this organized, and certainly none of these stars have been signed up, but I have a feeling that something is definitely going to come together.

Hell at this point I am willing to watch some old guy playing "Oh Say Can You See" on a harmonica if that is all they can scrape together rather than subject myself to whatever passes for entertainment during the inauguration of Putin's puppet.

    It may be surprising how fast this can come together if they aren't threatened, and don't think they won't be.

    FUCK YOU TRUMP.

      Other than that tweet, there was just the pic of the Trumps doing their required church trip, and people were making lots of jokes online re the short length of Melania's dress hem. I wonder why no family photo if he's so proud of his beautiful wife and kid. Will they do such at hing next year and make a video greeting? Hard to imagine.

      Melania feels more comfortable wearing this:

      I saw the photos of them at church. Melania's skirt was pretty short to be wearing in church, especially for a forty something so-called conservative woman to be wearing. I'm sure it won't be the last inappropriate thing she'll be wearing but hey, let's scream about Michelle Obama exposing her arms.

    I keep looking to see if there is new news on the We the People concert talked about, but it seems quiet on that front. Still, it does feel like something's seriously up, and I'm very hopeful there will be a concert.

    God damn I hate this country if only because we place SOOO much importance on celebrities. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEIR CAREERS. They don't have any sort of perspective anymore, even if they grew up poor. Their opinion on politics does matter anymore than yours and mine. The reason the media has such a bullying quality (im excluding bully bloggers like this one which isn't media since facts dont exist here) is because people obsess over who is divorcing who and who filed chapter 11. Do you not understand how weird it is to think you know another person's life just because of social status? It's like people here who day in day out slander politicians kids and people not on "their side." You will NEVER EVER know anyone other than yourself So stop talking about everyone else and improve YOUR LIFE. You're just victimizing strangers when you opine on their inner thoughts. Gryphen's ruined innocent lives, including those whom he blindly supports. Because he weighs in in areas he has no capacity to know anything about because he isn't a mind reader and he listens to liars. Think about that.

    People complain about Bush. My best years were under his terms. My worst were 2012-2014. Though I did get my perfect job last year but that isn't because this admin is awesome possum. It's because I made a huge change and took a gamble.

      That 'self-dealing, greedy Clinton Foundation has an A+ rating as far as non-profit foundations go.
      Contrary to you Don The Con's Foundation, which is being challenged in court (and thus YOUR president (SMALL 'p'!) has declared he will close it before his coronation, because the investigation is getting a bit too close for his comfort!

      7:23 is so right on target.

      And anyone who bitches about the Clinton foundation is an uninformed fool. That foundation raises so much money for the needy and truly does good all over the world. Trump's foundation is tiny and does nothing but line Trump's pockets with some extra bucks. The Trumps are all so selfish and all they think about is making more money. Anything they seem to do out of a good place is really about making them money or the loss (that gets them PR) is being made up for somewhere else--the Trumps never just give away money.

    I would love seeing this come off and counter Trump's inauguration. It would truly deflate his huge ego and I'd be one of the first to tune into it!

      Yes, it definitely would (and WILL!) deflate his ego YUUUGELY! And he would/and WILL lash out afterwards, and all the artists will have to pay a huge price for dissing him.
      But, I believe, they deem the price worth it...

    I've already committed to not watching the inauguration or any of the other gala events. So, having a focus for my tv time would be great! Trump would be livid if his ratings dumped.

    OT but so great, these pics of the Obamas in Hawaii. Plus, of the president looking so damn cool on the golf course. Trump's claimed that he's better (we all know he cheats), but he will never say a thing about appearances out there on the course. Trump is a hideous sight. BO is perfection.

  12. I don't know any of those celebrities, but I'll watch any alternative programming. I will not watch any Drumpf I can avoid. I am avoiding the news and have plenty of subscriptions. The only time I have to is during the late night shows.

    I believe the best way to enrage and insult Trump is to shun him. Dismiss him as insignificant and unworthy of notice. Ignore him. Avoid him.

    He can't make us watch and he can't make us listen. I don't do Twitter so he can't make me read either.

    Why do we need a shiny object though?
    If this concert event doesn't come to fruition, just TURN OFF THE TV and wear black. Go out and help a friend in need. Volunteer somewhere. Pay no attention while you work.
    Just dont watch the inauguration.
