Want to travel? Word has it the folks on Donald Trump’s transition team are handing out ambassadorships to anyone – anyone! – who can find top talent to perform at the president-elect’s inauguration.

Apparently, Kanye West, Jackie Evancho, Kid Rock, and Ted Nugent won’t cut the mustard for Donald Trump’s inauguration. He wants A-listers like Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Aretha Franklin, and Elton John. But guess what? They all backed Hillary Clinton.

Too bad the kind of creative misfits who become top performers aren’t usually down with the kind of haters and repressive hypocrites you find in Trump Land.

The Wrap reports Team Trump made highly unusual offers to at least two talent agents if they can find singers for the upcoming inauguration on January 20, 2017.

‘President-elect Donald Trump’s team is struggling so hard to book A-list performers for his inaugural festivities that it offered ambassadorships to at least two talent bookers if they could deliver marquee names, the bookers told The Wrap.’

The first talent booker, who has lined up performers for several inaugurations, declared that he was “shocked” by the offer.

‘Never in a million years have I heard something so crazy. That was the moment I almost dropped the phone.’

When contacted by The Wrap, Inauguration Committee spokesman Boris Epshteyn denied all this.

‘There is no truth to this insinuation. First-class entertainers are eager to participate in the inaugural events. The inauguration as a whole will be an exciting and uniting celebration of freedom and democracy. We will be releasing further details at the appropriate time.’

But The Wrap‘s source insists he heard the transition team’s unusual inauguration offer correctly.

‘My first thought was, ‘Are you joking? But no, it was serious.’

There’s also a second industry insider who spilled to The Wrap, and he’s a talent manager. According to him, Donald Trump’s transition team dropped some pretty broad hints.

‘They said they were in the process of  “figuring out posts, ambassadorships and commissions” if that was of any interest.’

This second source added that he knows at least two other people who received similar offers.

Team Trump’s difficulty in finding performers for the inauguration hardly comes as a surprise. Heck, they can’t even find enough high school marching bands to join the Inauguration Day parade. As Bipartisan Report noted:

‘The boycott of the inaugural parade has apparently also spread to the university level, with D.C.’s Howard University marching band refusing to participate, citing “too few members” and “budgetary constraints.”’

John Newsom, director of the historically black university mentioned above added:

‘I think everybody knows why and no one wants to say and lose their job.’

Back in November, they announced that Elton John would do a concert on the mall, only to have Elton John’s representatives smack that down post haste.

‘Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration.’

Like Katy Perry, Elton John played at several events for Hillary Clinton. He also told The Hollywood Reporter he wants someone in the White House who stands for “equality, decency, kindness and respect.”

‘We need a humanitarian in the White House, not a barbarian.’

In other words, definitely not Donald Trump.
