62 Politicians & Counting Are Boycotting Trump's Inauguration

Donald Trump‘s presidential inauguration will be held TODAY (January 20) and there are going to be many politicians not in attendance because they plan on boycotting the event.

The most high-profile boycotter on the list is definitely Georgia’s Rep. John Lewis, who announced he would not be attending the inauguration because he doesn’t consider Trump to be a legitimate president.

Trump responded to the comment by saying Lewis, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights movement, was “all talk, talk talk” and suggested he “spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart.”

Many more politicians, including Senator John Kerry, have said they will not be attending the inauguration, though they have not given a reason.

    I didn’t know JJ stopped being a celebrity gossip website and turned into a poor political website with hundred unnecessary articles about Trump & Co.

  • PuhLEEZE!

    Just jumping on the band of hate wagon. Shame Shame on every one of these politicians boycotting. They should step down from their post immediately. It’s not about liking the candidate of choice it’s about moving forward in America and these deplorables need to work with the system including our new president whether they like him or not. Boycotting in an operation to me disqualifies them for the post of a public official.

  • AoT

    I don’t care whether politicians boycott this event or not, I’m just annoyed by the 100 unnecessary political articles on celebrity gossip websites like JJ or People Magazine.

  • Joy

    This is a terrible day for the world. I still half expect the whole thing to just be a new season commercial for Ashton Kutcher’s crap show.

  • j k

    Donald Trump is a celebrity, he belongs here.

  • Chaz

    He’s always been a wannabe celebrity but he always stood just outside the velvet rope.

  • AoT

    But he doesn’t deserve so many stupid articles.
