Nancy Sinatra Says Father Would Never Have Performed at Trump's Inauguration
"He would never support a bigot."
Nancy Sinatra made it very clear on Thursday that her famous father would not perform at Donald Trump's inauguration if asked.
When a fan on Twitter asked her if Frank Sinatra would perform for Trump if he were invited, she simply answered: "He would never support a bigot."
Several performers have come under fire for either agreeing or refusing to perform at Trump's upcoming inauguration day.
Struggling to attract A-list talent to the inauguration day festivities, Trump's team announced that the Rockettes would perform, which caused backlash both directed at and among the group, including reports that the Rockettes were being forced to perform at risk of losing their jobs.
When word spread that the marching band of Talladega College, a historically black college in Alabama, will perform in the Jan. 20 inaugural parade, the school came under criticism as debate and backlash spread across the campus.
One member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir quit the group after they agreed to perform at the event. The singer posted that by performing at the inauguration, the choir appears to be "endorsing tyranny and fascism."
Nancy has been an outspoken critic of the president-elect. Earlier in the day, she tweeted about Trump, saying, "DT has very bad judgement. It's going to be a rough ride," and "For me it's more about the people who will pull the strings than the puppet. He has surrounded himself with horrible people."
