Donald Trump will NOT attend Kennedy Center Awards

WASHINGTON,  (Sputnik) – US President Donald Trump will not participate in this year’s Kennedy Center Honors ceremony dedicated to achievements in the fields of art, music, dance, film, television and culture areas, the White House said in a statement on Saturday.

Earlier this week, some of the honorees, including TV producer Norman Lear and dancer Carmen de Lavallade, announced they would skip the event set for December after Trump’s remarks in connection with violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“The president and first lady have decided not to participate in this year’s activities to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction,” the statement reads.

According to the statement, the US president and first lady Melania Trump sincerely congratulated this year’s award recipients.

Last week, white nationalists held a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia to protest authorities’ plans to remove a monument of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park. The rally subsequently led to clashes with left wing counter-protestors and culminated in a car-ramming attack that killed one person and injured 19 others. Commenting on the events, Trump hesitated to condemn the white supremacists and instead spoke about racism and bigotry on “many sides.”

However, on Monday, Trump condemned white supremacists and other hate groups for the events in Charlottesville.

I’ve just read on Russian RT that some in Congress requested psychiatric examination of Mr. Dumb. I also read that some psychiatrists gathered together on something called Yale and proclaimed Mr. Dumb to be mentally ill. They did not use exactly such words but that in no way minimizes shameful behaviour they exhibited while partying together on Yale. It is however interesting to note that Mr. Chimp otherwise known as Dubya did show clear signs of schizophrenia when he claimed God told him to attack Iranq. Apparently it was not enough for Yale party psychiatrists to raise their voice but… Read more »

Good comment in general, but W.Bush is not schizophrenic.

I think you are being too sophisticated my friend

George Bush was on cocaine like mots of his generation in the US….

Donald Trump is high on opioids I think….very trendy nowadays and this explains
why there is a car crash every time he goes off script….and he needs some “adult” to kick him in the pants to stop him from being put in a straight jacket…

I never thought I would live to see the United Staes openly governed by obvious looney tunes and out of control hucksters…

But I suppose it had to come to this…

The firing of Bannon is the official start of an era of new political correctness and military interventions abroad. The alt-right was 100% right in what they did and the left in conjunction with the mayor, governor and the other usual suspects set them up. Trump knows something along those lines is up, but he is not allowed to speak about it.
