We’re pretty sure that most people didn’t think that Donald Trump would attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th after the outgoing president received a massive narcissistic injury. Trump has just confirmed that on Twitter after conceding to Biden on Thursday after being pressured by his aides following the domestic terrorist activity we all witnessed at the Capitol on the president’s behalf.
CNN’s Kaitlan Collins gave us some insight into who urged Trump not to attend the inauguration after asking people whether to or not. Apparently, Trump can’t even make that simple decision himself, even though Biden and former President Barack Obama attended his inauguration.
Trump was still recently asking people if he should attend.
While responses were varied, one person who said he shouldn’t was Kimberly Guilfoyle, per a few folks. https://t.co/4PyyYuWaTX

Trump is just not a classy guy. Instead, he’s a dangerous buffoon.

I believe the last president to skip his incumbent’s inauguration was Andrew Johnson — incompetent, impeached, sympathetic to Confederate traitors — so this is pretty fitting. https://t.co/iiZTFf7hKP

To all those who asked, I will not be going to little Johnny’s birthday party because he’s liked more than me.

if michelle obama and hillary clinton can show up to your weird ass inauguration, you can put on your big boy panties, paint on your orange lip smacker, adjust your wig and be an adult. https://t.co/zgc49OVmdM

Trump has spent four long years traumatizing this country, but the insurrection on our nation’s Capitol was too much. We need to heal, and to me, the only way to do that is to impeach this abusive president again, so he can’t run for office in 2024. So, I don’t really give a damn if he goes to the inauguration or not. I’d prefer to see him on trial for inciting the insurrection and the over three hundred and sixty-five Americans that died on his watch.
