When President-elect Donald Trump officially takes over the White House in two weeks, his inaugural parade will be missing the legendary voice of 89-year-old Charlie Brotman, the announcer of every inauguration celebration since Dwight Eisenhower in 1957.
Brotman, who learned last week that he’ll be replaced by a younger, vocal Trump supporter, said he was “heartbroken” about the inauguration committee’s decision.
“I was destroyed,” he told local Washington D.C. news station WJLA. “I’ve been doing this for 60 years.”
If any of you saw Rachel Maddow's amazing segment on this guy \you know that he recently lost his wife of 65 years.
He said the only thing keeping him going was his work on the inauguration. But now that's gone as well.
I swear this Donald Trump is like Snidely Whiplash, Charles Montgomery Burns, and Ebeneezer Scrooge all rolled up into one.
