WTF! Kanye NOT Invited to Perform at Trump…

President-elect Donald Trump has been littered controversy ever since he announced his campaign back in 2015. From the Miss USA pageant, to the leaked videotape with Billy Bush. And now, just one day before his inauguration as the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump is again facing controversy - for his inauguration performers. Or better yet who’s NOT performing. Kanye West was rumored to perform after he was outspokenly in support of the president elect. But he was officially dismissed by Trump’s team, and the reason is pretty shocking. This rant during a concert last year had fans scratching heads as many of Kanye’s fans are NOT Trump supporters. Kanye though took that rant a step further and actually met with the soon-to-be president just before Christmas. While president-elect Trump himself admitted meeting with the rapper was to secure him as an “ambassador of sorts,” many also speculated that Kanye would also be performing at the Inauguration. Well, it turns out the rapper was never asked. Here’s what Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee chair had to say. “I mean, he’s great,” Tom Barrack told CNN. “He considers himself a friend f the President-elect, but it’s not the venue. It’s going to be typically traditional American. Kanye’s a great guy, we just haven’t asked him to perform. And we move on with our agenda.” We’ll let you interpret that how you will - but let’s take a look at who ARE the traditional American performers Trump did pick. Americas got talent winner Jackie Evanko will perform the national anthem. Rock band 3 Doors Down will also perform, as will country singers Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood. And who was asked but declined? Classical singer Charlotte Church said no, as did Jennifer Holliday and a Bruce Springsteen cover band. But would Kanye have done it if he were “traditionally American” enough? And really, what does that even mean?? Let us know your thoughts below.
