Kanye West was NOT invited to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
A spokesperson for president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration committee told CNN that Kanye just isn’t right for the “typically and traditionally American event.”
Tom Barrack, chairman of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, told CNN‘s Erin Burnett that the inauguration wasn’t a “fitting” venue for Kanye’s music.
“He’s been great, he considers himself a friend of the president-elect, but it’s not the venue.” He added. “It’s going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy, we just haven’t asked him to perform. And we move on with our agenda.”
Typically and traditionally American? That dog whistle sure is loud.
