Bristol Palin can't stand how full of "sissies" the music industry is.
The daughter of Sarah Palin criticized by name 11 artists who have turned down invites to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration next month in what the NY Daily News referred to as a "grammatically challenged blog post."
Among the so-called "sissies" are Elton John, Celine Dion, KISS, Andrea Bocelli, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Aretha Franklin.
Palin said Trump's team "sought out some of the world's greatest musicians, but nearly all of them have refused for fear of backlash."
Okay. So undoubtedly there would be backlash, as there is for anyone who performs at a partisan political event, but Palin really thinks that's the reason.
"Isn't it amazing how 'not cool' it is to be conservative in the public eye?" Palin wrote. "Either Hollywood is that far off -- or we have so many sissies we have in the spot light [sic] too scared to stand for what they believe in!"
So Palin thinks Elton John, a fierce proponent of gay rights and marriage equality, is secretly "stumping for Trump," even though Trump's vice president is Mike Pence, a man who believes homosexuality is a sin to be punished.
She apparently thinks Katy Perry -- who might have an "I love Hillary Clinton tattoo" at this point for all we know -- is afraid to show how conservative she really is.
Even many of the Rockettes, an act that is "confirmed" for the inauguration, have mulled boycotting the event, due to Trump's past comments about women.
Palin has a right to her opinion, no matter how ill-conceived it is, but you have to wish she was at least aware enough to realize that not everyone agrees with Donald Trump (he did lose the popular vote by over 3 million), and that fact alone doesn't make them cowards.
Furthermore, is not getting a celebrity performer at the inauguration that big of a deal?
Even Trump himself has come around to that realization.
But Palin can at least take this to heart:
If Trump really makes good on his promises to the American people, he'll have no problem getting whomever he wants to perform at his second inauguration.
