Celine Dion Refuses To Perform At Desperate Donald Trump's Inauguration — Now His Team Is Calling A 'Hail Mary' To Land An A-Lister!

This is the most wonderful thing we've heard all week.
The Wrap is reporting that Donald Trump's transition team is desperate to get an A-list star to perform at next month's inauguration — but that nobody is willing to do it, no doubt in large part to how detested The Donald is among celebs and entertainers!
Speaking anonymously, a source from Trump's Presidential Inauguration Committee confirmed that the group is hoping "to do better than Kid Rock and Ted Nugent," and added:
It looks like Donald Trump will have to find someone else to sing "Hold me closer, Tiny Hands, Sir"!
On Wednesday, it was widely reported that Elton John would be playing the President-elect's inauguration after one of Trump's team made the announcement — leaving many scratching their heads.
Anthony Scaramucci, a member of Trump's transition team executive committee, told the BBC the Rocket Man singer would be performing for the upcoming inauguration to show "our commitment to gay rights."
This obviously came as a shock, since the glam rock icon has been a huge Hillary Clinton supporter throughout the presidential race.
But as it turns out, Trump's team was spewing out total bull! A rep for the singer denied the announcement, telling the New York Post:
Apparently, Donald Trump is a glass-half-full kind of candidate.
Despite saying she did her own work, viewers couldn't help but notice large chunks of the potential First Lady's speech were lifted from the current FLOTUS's 2008 address at the Democratic convention.
After the uncanny resemblances sparked online controversy — and the hilarious hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes — Trump's campaign tried to disprove the accusations by quoting Kid Rock and My Little Pony (we don't get it either).
Now with the dust settling, the big cheese himself weighed in on his wife's scandal — and his thoughts on the subject aren't the least bit surprising.
On Wednesday, Trump shared on Twitter:
Of all the audacious and ridiculous things the Donald Trump campaign has done, this one might take the cake.
On Tuesday morning, Republican National Committee Communications Director Sean Spicer took to CNN to respond to questions about Melania Trump's plagiarized speech last night at the Republican National Convention.
Spicer, set on defending Melania from accusations that she copied Michelle Obama's 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention, decided to invoke some previous examples of similar wording to prove that Melania didn't actually lift line after line from Mrs. Obama's speech.
OK, fine, he wants to defend his candidate's wife, sure — but it's the specific examples Spicer chose that are really raising eyebrows as this controversy storms on for another day.
We can't even make this stuff up.
Watch Sean Spicer try to assert that, because Twilight Sparkle (a cartoon character) once talked about dreams, that proves Melania Trump did not copy Michelle Obama… or something (below):
