You have probably read that the best-known singers in the country have refused to perform at the Trump inauguration ceremonies. The Rockettes will perform, probably at an Inaugural Ball since the swearing-in platform is not large enough to hold a large troupe of high-kicking dancers. One Rockette said she didn’t want to dance at the event, but the owner of the troupe said she would dance or lose her job. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has signed on to sing, but at least one of its members has dropped out for reasons of conscience.

 

But Andy Borowitz reports that the Trump team has finally enlisted an internationally known performer to sing at the Inauguration. He is not internationally known as a singer, but he is an A list celebrity.

 

Borowitz also reported on an honor that Trump received even before the swearing-in ceremonies.
