You know things are bad when a president, like Donald Trump, one who idolizes Hollywood and even used it to get elected, has elected not to attend the annual Kennnedy Center Honors, a Hollywood event of all events for a President of the United States.

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have elected not to attend the annual Kennedy Center Honors in December amid a political backlash among those who will be feted at the event.

The first family will not participate “to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Saturday morning.

If there is one thing Hollywood hates, it is white nationalism and bigotry and the Trump’s know they will be crushed if they had even thought about attending the event.

Now THAT is a chapter of American history which must be ripped from its pages.
