Hillary and Bill Clinton to attend Trump inauguration.

Courtesy of New York Magazine:  

Bill and Hillary Clinton have decided to attend the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States, according to two sources with knowledge of their plans. The Clintons will join former Presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, who have also announced that they will attend. George and Laura Bush said today that they would be present “to witness the peaceful transfer of power.”

Well at least the person who the majority of the American people chose to be their leader will be at the inauguration she was cheated out of.

I think it is very classy for Hillary and Bill to show up. And you know if the roles were reversed that Trump would not be caught dead at her inauguration. 

Still not watching though.

    Not watching, either. I'm heartbroken enough already, and I can't stand to hear the windbag talk.

    Trump would tweet about whoever sang the National Anthem at her Inauguration, plus add a few zingers about her Address, criticize Bill in some fashion, finishing with "Sad."

    When will the arc of history bend back again toward justice?

    Unless that peaceful transition goes to the legal rightful winner than? NO. I will not watch or witness a rigged election as mr trump claimed it was. This is an UN american show.

      The legal rightful winner was Trump, unless you disavow the U.S. Constitution, which you obviously do.

      The Constitution had nothing to do with his election. I disavow Putin's influence, Fox news, gerrymandering and MI and FL tallies. You obviously don't believe in the law, comrade.

    One can hope that it will never happen. A big secret gets revealed next week that makes Trump go away forever. Then everyone looks like they were willing to play nice nice.

    Trump inauguration will feature shorter parade so the new president can get 'some work done' before ceremonial balls
    (OK LOL)

    • President Barack Obama's parades took up some two hours of his day

    • Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidential library says his 1957 event took three and a half hours to complete

    • 'This is going to be a shorter parade, an hour to hour and a half or so so he can go to work,' a spokesman for Donald Trump's inaugural committee says


    • Trump is doing away with much of the pomp and circumstance the Obamas added to the agenda in 2009; they attended 11 balls in all to his three

    • He's taking part in events for five days like the Obama's did his inaguration will be lower key, with fewer celebrities...

    There will three balls instead of 10, as there were in 2009 with President Obama because this president—Donald J. Trump—is all about getting to work and making sure Americans are safe in their homes, safe in their jobs,' PIC Communications Director Boris Epshteyn told Breitbart....

      I heard that today re the 90-minute inaugural and how Trump wanted to get right to work. Yeah, right. As you all point out, the inauguration will be such a dud. Not with everyone, of course, since millions of idiots voted for him, but in comparison to recent inaugurals, and especially to BO's, it will be a dud. I'm not sure what all is planned for the week, but BO made a week out of it. He had that Lincoln train ride and reading, the We Are One Concert, and MLK Jr. tribute. All I've heard so far is that Trump will be laying a wreath at Arlington, or something. Of course it's military in nature. Everything he does uses the military so as to make him seem so huge and important and like he's our savior.

      Wonder how many people Trump's group will pay to show up for any of their festivities? Trump's turnout will never compare to that of Barack Obama! He'll lie and said he had the biggest turnout of any new president taking office, but his lies will be so easy to prove - once again!

      Nice spin. He's having fewer balls because (A) he can't pay for them, (B) he can't make US pay for them, and (C) he can't get any of his millionaire buddies to pay for them. The Parade? Wanna bet he and porn model and daughter do NOT walk anywhere, but are in some golden carriage with the Trump logo all over it, pulled by white stallions? God, he's so nauseating.

    9. More like he couldn't get enough people for his parade. Bet all of the bands are told to march real slow and stop a lot.

      As for the balls. You buy a ticket. I'll bet they couldn't give enough tickets away to fill more than those three balls. Or they're excluding the "little people" and only the big mega donors are attending so only enough for three.


      Baby Sour Grapes can spin it all he wants. His approvals are in the toilet and will stay there. The only way their moving is to be flushed.

    Trump wants to shorten his inauguration parade by 1/2 hour so he can get work done? Maybe he can't get civilian people to March in the parade?

    Looks like they will have a whole bunch of military groups like Russia, North Korea and China has in their parades.

    What about President-elect Trump who skipped a whole bunch of President Daily Briefings to go on his Love Me tour fest only to the states he won. Trump also skipped PDBs to attend other non important things like his photo ops in Florida and New York.

    After learning yesterday that the Bushes and Clintons will be there, it felt as if the current First Family and past ones may have talked and decided to all go and be supportive of one another, and it was not about Trump. I wondered what was going to happen in terms of that asshole trying to use their presence as a way to look fully legit, including in photographs, and all I could see in my mind was him making sure to get in long handshakes and back pats and embraces. The idea of him having physical contact with Hillary makes me sick. She, of course, did shake his hand after he said less than horrid things, finally, at the end of a debate. I imagine she will shake his hand.

    But I still feel so certain that when the Trumps went to the WH and were made to use a back door, preventing photos outside of the WH--and Trump would have milked that for all it was worth--it was because Michelle could not bring herself to be touched by a sexual assaulter, and Barack was supportive of this. When MO spoke on the trail about Trump's treatment of women and how his actions affected girls and boys too, she meant every word. I thought no way was she going to let the hands that had assaulted so many women, that had groped them and grabbed their genitals and attempted rape too, touch her. I believed, and still believe, that the WH day with the Trumps avoided the meetup outside in front of cameras for that reason. MO had laid down the law: no f'ing way was that perv going to touch her. And, of course, he had treated her husband like shit, and her daughters because of how he treated their father, for years. He deserved absolutely no respect. I hate the thought of Trump now grabbing MO in public and forcing a handshake and embrace and air kiss.

    I wrote to MO's people last night and begged that she continue to not have contact with him. I talked about how, because of what she believes in her heart about the assaults and because of how she stood up for females on the trail, that her being touched by him now would be offensive to all of us. I asked that they please find a way to allow MO to once again avoid contact, and in a way that wouldn't create any questions. I wish she'd not attend the inauguration, but of course she'll be by Barack's side. If she absolutely has to shake his hand, I bet she'll have on gloves. How I'd love it if she then disposed of them.

    I hate that f'er so much. He is just an ugly POS. As always, I am wishing for his heart attack every day.

      It's already broken and nothing the Obamas can do will fix it.

      The only way this country is going to heal is with Democrats in the White House and both houses of Congress for 3-4 2 term presidencies. We need some FDR time and more. We need the BananaRepublicans to be such a minority they can't do anything to hurt us. On the state level too. That is the "take back" our country needs. To kick this fascist minority to the curb, undo and move forward, until such a majority recognizes that it is in their best interests to keep the Nazis out of power.

    "attending Trump’s inauguration gives tacit support and approval to someone who poses a clear and present danger to our democracy."

    1. Exactly.

      Compromising or "working with" the Republicans or Trump automatically legitimizes them and is tantamount to support of ALL of their agenda. You can't pick and choose. You can't agree to their infrastructure plans only. If you do, you're also condoning their dismantling of Obamacare, Social Security, Medicare, the whole Nazi agenda.

    Sweetie - 1:33 PM! It isn't ALL liberals - there are many political parties within our country that oppose(d) The Donald! They include Republicans, Democrats, the Green Party, Libertarians, Independents, etc.

    The 'majority' of Americans did NOT cast their vote for Trump although he continually denies it. Hillary beat him in a landslide. And, the majority of Americans do not respect or admire the Russian (and Putin) loving jerk!

    1. Anonymous5:02 PM

      oh sweetie at 2:49......

      Based on the popular vote totals you have about 63 mill to Trump and 65.5 mill to Clinton. That is about 46% to Trump and to 48% to Clinton. That is HARDLY a landslide by any means.

      And basically all those numbers, you say are such a landslide, come from ONE State, California, where Hillary outdid Trump by around 3.4 million.


      You know what is a landslide though? What actually determines president, the Electoral College, where Trump did actually crush Hillary. 306 to 232, a crushing defeat.

      An aside, but interesting observation, to me anyways....

      If you take all the Republican votes for Trump, and add the Libertarian votes (who are really traditionalist conservative Republicans) you get 62,979,879 + 4,488,919 = 67,468,798 voting righty conservative.

      If you take all the Democrat votes for Clinton, and add the Green Party votes (it is safe to assume they are all on the left) you get 65,844,954 + 1,457,044 = 65,989,998 voting lefty liberal.

      A bigger conservatives vote than liberal. You guys don't have this great advantage you think you have.

  30. I'm breaking with the ranks here - I don't applaud the Clinton's for their decision to attend the inauguration. As a matter of fact, I'd say fuck them both. I'm disgusted with the lack of balls shown by the DNC and I voted for Hillary. If they KNEW Russia was hacking into our security systems long before the polls - Why didn't they do something about it?! Now, all I'm seeing is a lame effort from Obama making an issue of it after the election is lost to a treasonous POS and it's the rest of us stuck with him. Sorry Gryphen - there's something so off about this whole situation and we either have the weakest, chickenshit party or there's more to the story.

    If Hillary couldn't beat this crazy ass lunatic, in spite of all the horrifying reasons he gave us to never let him near that office - what the hell is wrong with this picture?! It's gonna take me a damn long time to forgive the Clinton's and I don't care who agrees with me or not - if Dems couldn't prevent this - what the hell does that say about the party? They have no balls and Hillary Clinton failed all of us who desperately needed her to win - and she could've fought back a lot harder. All the Democrat leadership failed us. Fuck trump and his tiny dick - I'm disgusted with all of them.

    Personally, I'd like to see Hillary skip it. Call her a sore loser but I'm fucking tired of Democrats always taking the high road, being the adults and basically rolling over and playing dead.

    Mitch McConnell having the unmitigated gaul to tell Democrats they better not obstruct Trump and his Supreme Court nominees is pretty much the last straw. Day one he did nothing but obstruct Obama for 8 fucking years. Not just 293 of Merrick Garland but 88-100 judges.
