Singer Marie Osmond made a surprising offer that could alienate her from the liberal elite in Hollywood, all for the sake of unity.
She said she would be willing to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration if asked.
“I think when it comes to our country we need to unite,” Osmond recently said in an interview with Yahoo Finance. “I think we should all support our president whether we’re happy or sad. This is America.”
Osmond, 57, has eight children of her own, and she said they all have different political beliefs. She added that she would never want them to feel division over politics.
“We should come together, and I think an Inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should,” the singer concluded.
Osmond and her brother, Donny, performed at President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration in 1981.
She’s right that it’s time for the country to come together and let Trump do what the people elected him to do.
While Osmond confirmed that she would be on vacation during the event, we assume that she would have changed those plans had she been invited to perform.
That’s an big risk, considering the amount of venom most of Hollywood has been spewing against Trump since he announced he would run for office. There’s no doubt Democrats and liberal news outlets will trash Osmond for making the offer, but that’s exactly the kind of hate we’ve come to expect from the left.
Yahoo reported that those who are scheduled to perform at the event included the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Radio City Rockets, the Talladega (Alabama) College Marching Tornadoes and “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho, who will sing the national anthem.
