Stevieslaw: Inauguration News—Trump to Sing
Donald Trump announced in a series of early morning tweets that he would be the one to sing the National Anthem at his inauguration. “Bunchalosers want to do it,” he tweeted at 5:45, which was followed by a 6:10 tweet saying: I’m going to sing it myself—and it will be the best rendition of the Star Spangled Banner ever sung—ever.” And at 6:22, “nobody could ever sing it as well as I can sing it—it will be huge.”
Ton Def, Trump’s entertainment director, confirmed that the President-Elect will sing, telling Stevieslaw that moreover, “he will not need a military band to do a terrific job—Mr. Trump will sing all three stanzas of the anthem “a cappella.”
The New York Times reports that the number of people saying that they would watch the Inauguration has jumped from an anemic 42,000 to more than 6 billion, wordwide.
