Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, liberals have done everything in their power to alienate anyone and everyone even remotely associated with him. Now, they’re taking things to a whole new level.
Last week, Trump approached blind singer Andrea Bocelli about singing at the January 20th inauguration. Once fans got wind of the Italian tenor considering the invitation, social media was outraged. Liberals threatened to boycott Bocelli and his music if he took Trump’s offer.

Bocelli eventually declined the invitation, citing the backlash he was receiving from his fans, which Trump understood.
Can someone please explain why an inaugural ceremony is turning political? American already decided who they want to be their next president. It was decided on November 8th, again during the recount process, and a third time during Monday’s electoral college vote. The voters, the American people, decided who the next Commander-in-Chief would be and they chose Donald J. Trump. The inauguration isn’t political. It’s a celebration of the voters’ decision.
Bocelli’s fans should be ecstatic that he was invited to sing at such a prestigious ceremony, instead of threatening to boycott him if he took Trump up on the offer.
I don’t recall conservatives threatening to boycott Beyoncé or Kelly Clarkson when they performed at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony in 2013. If anything, people were excited for the two entertainers.
If Bocelli really wanted to perform at such a prestigious event, he should have had enough of a backbone to tell his fans he wanted to be a part of President-Elect Trump’s inaugural lineup. For every liberal who boycotted Bocelli, there would be two or three deplorables lined up to buy his CDs and attend his concerts.
At the end of the day, it’s impossible to make every single person in America happy. And some Bocelli fans understand.
