wants to go Trump's inauguration so he has resorted to paying for ads:
With only a few days left before he takes office, Donald Trump is running ads on Facebook to invite attendees to the upcoming inauguration.
The President-elect will assume his seat at the Resolute desk in the White House Oval Office with one of the lowest favourability ratings among an incoming US leader. According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 40 per cent of Americans view the New York real estate mogul positively – that is 21 per cent below President Obama’s outgoing rating.
“The inauguration is our moment in American history, and I want you to be with me on inauguration day,” Mr Trump said in a Facebook video. “It’s going to be so exciting.”
Tonight Show staffer Marina Cockenberg noticed that the Facebook ads were targeted to New Yorkers over the age of 27.
imagine being so disliked that 4 days before your inauguration you start paying to send desperate FB ad invites to “person, 27+”
As Mr Trump – who also failed to secure the popular vote – struggles to have entertainers agree to perform, the Department of Homeland Security expects up to 900,000 people to arrive in Washington during inauguration week – about half the number of people who went to Mr Obama’s ceremony in 2009. But a significant portion of those are likely to be protesting the minority President-elect’s administration.
The estimations indicate that Mr Trump lied yet again in an interview with the New York Times.
“We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars,” he said, despite even a Bruce Springsteen cover band turning down the opportunity to perform.
“All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.”
Mr Trump appears to have pulled the anecdote about dress shops from thin air. According to Washington retailers, big and small, there is a veritable surplus of ball gowns in the nation’s capitol.
Oh, and by the way, here are other sources for this story. I’m including them because the President begging people to attend his inauguration is so pathetic and so ridiculous that the story cries out for evidence that this is not from a fake website.http://ift.tt/2jNQpeChttp://ift.tt/2k52qQehttp://ift.tt/2iUa0vmhttp://ift.tt/2jO5TPR
Also, here’s the latest list of lawmakers skipping out on the inauguration. As of Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 9:56 a.m., the number is at sixty.
And scalpers are losing money on inauguration tickets. Seems that no one wants to go.
He literally can’t even get a COVERS BAND to perform at his inauguration
I sincerely hope that Drumpf cries himself to sleep when the cameras aren’t rolling with the knowledge that everyone with any sense in this country utterly fucking HATES him and the vast majority of people in this country never wanted to see his repulsive and hideous self SLIME its slug like way into the oval office
And the we’re all counting down the days untill he’s impeached and imprisoned
Also LOL at “PLenty of movie and entertainment stars”
NO ONE is going to this pathetic shitshow of an “Inauguration” except a bunch of Z list nobodies who don’t have anything that could even LAUGHABLY be called a career. The only people with half a brain in there head who want to be anywhere near this pathetic waste of space event are the ones who’ll be showing up to protest the election of an illegitimate president who LOST the popular vote by three million votes
hey that’s offensive to slugs come on now they have a purpose at least
I apologise for insulting gentle garden friends by comparing them to Drumpf
why when the cameras aren’t rolling? i hope he cries on tv, has a total meltdown and then just sort of…wanders off and is found like a year later eating beans in a shed up north
PLEASE LET THAT ACTUALLY HAPPEN
the funny/horrifying thing is that I can imagine that actually occuring
Well, it wasn’t a lie about record-breaking turnout. It’s just the record is for LOWEST turnout
I think this might also be the LOWEST approval rating for an incoming president and he lost the popular vote by more votes than any president before him…so those are records he broke as well
