Send In The Clown (He Is Already Here)

If he wasn't such a terrible human being you would feel sorry for Donald Trump, but because he is nobody should and that's why he can't get anybody to sing at his inauguration so he has been reduced to pleading with half remembered British singers such as Rebecca Ferguson who was the runner up in the 2010 X-Factor.
His dancers have at least been sorted out after the first choice dance troupe turned him down the Mormon Tabernacle Choir have been press-ganged into it under threat of being kicked out of the choir but even some of them have taken the moral high ground and walked rather than dance for the orange haired lunatic anyway.
Andrea Bocelli initially agreed to sing for Trump but withdrew after a fan backlash and Elton John was apparently one of the big names who had been approached and politely declined the offer but Rebecca Ferguson has agreed on the condition that she chooses the song and her choice is the anti-racism anthem 'Strange Fruit' by Billie Holiday.
'The song speaks to all the disregarded and down trodden black people in the US and is a reminder of how love is the only thing that will conquer all the hatred in this world' she explained which probably means she won't be getting the call anytime soon.
With only 18 days left to plan it, the Trump inauguration looks at the moment like it will be half a dozen Mormon dancers and Sarah Palin belting out some show tunes.
