Donald Trump's Tweets About Congressman And Civil Rights Icon John Lewis Are Awful — But At Least One Good Thing Is Coming From It

no title

He just can't help himself, can he?

Over the weekend, Donald Trump spent far too much time disrespecting Georgia Congressman John Lewis — a true civil rights icon who has fought for racial and social justice for decades, quite literally nearly losing his life during a protest years ago.

But to Trump, well, none of that matters.

Stemming from criticism Congressman Lewis had of The Donald late last week, Trump got wind of the negative talk and fired off a pair of offensive tweets trying to call out Lewis about the district in Georgia over which he presides (below):

no title

It's official now that Toby Keith and Three Doors Down have booked themselves gigs performing at Donald Trump's inauguration (uh… congrats?), but there just aren't that many other performers willing to step up for the Prez-elect!

And after Jennifer Holliday very publicly backed off in an open letter published earlier today… is something deeper going on here??

The Donald isn't exactly popular — and he's been controversial for the past two years of his weird, wacky campaign run — but TMZ is reporting that it's not just artists turning down the opportunity to perform at his inauguration next week… it's also

Good for her!!!

Broadway legend and performing artist Jennifer Holliday has officially canceled her scheduled performance at Donald Trump's inauguration next Friday, writing an open letter to her LGBT fans and calling her decision to perform a "lapse of judgment."

The singer — who has won Tony Awards and Grammys — came under fire on Friday when she was announced as the performer of a concert set as part of The Donald's swearing-in activities in Washington, D.C.

But the woman, long considered an ally to LGBT fans of hers, reconsidered the announcement after seeing the pushback from those who have supported her for so long!

We know Donald Trump is already a historically unpopular President-elect, but is he SO undesirable that nobody wants to come to his inauguration?!

According to some reports out this week, that just might be the case — and The Donald is resorting to shelling out money to seat-fillers to be sure there's a full house when he's sworn in next Friday!!

Donald Trump's Inauguration Will Have LESS Attendees Than Barack Obama's!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald Trump

Sorry Donald Trump! Barack Obama comes out on top!

On January 20, the controversial President-elect will have his inauguration where he will begin his four-year term. But how many people are expected to show up to the ceremony??

It depends who you ask!

According to the inauguration planners, they are expecting around 900,000 people at the National Mall. On the other hand, The D.C. Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is planning for 800K to 900K, while The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Activities (JCCIC) expects 700K to 750K.

The biggest estimate comes from Destination D.C. who is anticipating one million people, including protestors.

Regardless of which number is most accurate, Trump's swearing-in ceremony will most likely attract less people than Barack Obama's. In 2009, Barry's event gathered 1.8 million, while his 2013 inauguration drew around one million.

However, these figures are simply estimates, and you should be wary of anything you read. According to Arizona State University professor Steve Doig:

"Take any estimate with a grain of salt… What you need to do is look carefully at how the estimate was done and how transparent the group who did it is about their methods."

Either way, Obama is still the man of the people!
