Trump’s video begging people to attend his inauguration party is killing the web

Donald Trump

Hey, remember when 1.8 million supporters turned out for President Obama’s first inauguration in 2009, setting a record attendance for any event held in Washington, D.C.? Yeah, well, that’s definitely not happening this Friday when Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

RSVPs to the event are pretty dismal and he’s struggled to find any celebrities to perform at either the big event or his parties, so to try and drum up attendance Donald released a video over the weekend inviting everyone to his “Make America Great Again Celebration” on the day before he’s actually inaugurated, which he promises will be “incredible” and “really fantastic.” (How could it not be with performers like Three Doors Down and whoever he can find at the last minute to replace Jennifer Holliday?!)

“I’ll see you on January 19th, very importantly, at the Lincoln Memorial at four o’clock,” Trump says with forced enthusiasm.

The actual inauguration, meanwhile, is Friday, January 20th at 9am. It’s held at the Capitol.

The video was shared on Mike Pence’s Facebook page over the weekend, where it has so far garnered over 12,000 comments, the majority of which from people sending their regrets, as well as their reasons why they won’t be able to attend. Sad!

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the comments…
