    Freedom concert to compete with inaugural?

    What’s the best way to annoy Donald Trump? Steal the spotlight from him. And it looks like a key Democrat with some celebrity connections plans to do that on January 20, Inauguration Day.Unlike Team Trump — which can’t find any A-list acts to perform on Inauguration Day — event organizers say they’ll have no problem lining up performers for the anti-inauguration bash.

The former labor secretary for President Bill Clinton and economics professor at U.C.

    POLITICO reports a Democratic concert promoter plans on staging a huge “We the People” concert in Miami to compete with the president-elect’s inauguration. Oh but wait, there’s more. Robert Reich declares, “Presto. The Trump inauguration loses all the TV ratings. Basically, no one watches it.” Well, except for those die hard Trump fans. And here comes the kicker…Proceeds from the concert could go to all of the non-profits Donald Trump, his supporters, and his fellow Republicans hate. ACLU, NAACP, Planned Parenthood ...
