    Well deserved by all. But I had to lol that for Trump’s first year as POTUS, the Kennedy Center nominates four people of color and a unquestionable liberal. Wonder what the odds are of Trump making it to this event or will he jump ship like he did the correspondence dinner.

    I pray he skips out he doesn’t deserve being in the same room with any of these honorees or with the Kennedy Center.After all he doesn’t believe in the Arts.No doubt if he did attend,he would demand his seat in the center be replaced with a golden throne.
