    Wait a second. Didn't Frostbit post that the whole thing is bogus? Didn't happen? Has no basis in fact?

    I wouldn't trust it either. It was SNOPES. Scott thinks it bias, Norm thinks it's Biblical.

    scott claimed they scrubbed a page from their website, and I showed it was not scrubbed.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    My mistake. That was PolitiFact. You were the one with the bogus attack on Snopes.

    "A little late"?

    I'm not sure what you mean, but the media were well practiced looking down on Mr. Trump for the past year+. Heck, you even start with a condescending snark in this very post, you oxymoron you.

    It's never too late to look down at entertainers.

    He's not that anymore so if we're going to continue to judge someone by one part of their life then we made an admitted cokehead president in the two prior elections.

    A member of the Radio City Rockettes took to social media to express her disappointment with having to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
    In a since-deleted Instagram post, one of the Rockettes displayed a photo of her declaring Trump “Not my President!”

    The "not my president" line has always bothered me.

    Whether you voted for him or not, whether you like him or not, a President elected by the constitutionally approved process is OUR President for all Americans.

    You might have a point if your Cheeto Jesus stopped tweeting a couple of decades ago.

    Really this is absurd. I didn't vote for Obama and felt his policies would be bad but he was my President.

    I don't know how the Rockettes work but in Denver most dance companies have a handful of full-time dancers and a boatload of part-time/on-call dancers who desperately want to be full-time.

    You could eliminate the entire full-time troupe and replace them with understudies, part-timers, and wait-listed performers without the most of the audience ever knowing a thing - that's how good those people are. They as good as the full-timers but just not on that audition day. It's like the Olympics: the difference in the medals is just that day.

    Meh, like most of the country, I will catch the swearing in but ignore the rest of it. If I wouldn't make time to see a Super Bowl half-time show, I wouldn't make time to see the presidential equivalent regardless of who won. Just like the Super Bowl.
