The weeks following her election defeat haven’t been the easiest for Hillary Clinton. The Democrat has admitted that her failure to win the presidency will hurt for a long time.
There have been a few times this past week when all I’ve wanted to do was just to curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house ever again.
Clinton said at the Children’s defense Fund’s gala in Washington, D.C. in one of her first public appearances after her election loss on November 8.
For someone as ambitious as Hillary, a defeat in the election she considered all but won must be a very painful experience, something that she has admitted herself in her belated concession speech.
While the presidential inauguration won’t play out the way Hillary Clinton had planned, both she and her husband, ex-President, Bill Clinton, will attend the inaugural ceremonies for President-elect, Donald Trump.
The information was confirmed by Clinton aides on Tuesday.
It’s a common practice that former presidents and their spouses attend presidential inaugurations. But this is the first time that a former first lady has lost the election. Trump’s inauguration will probably be a bitter pill that Hillary Clinton has to swallow.
Two former presidents are expected to attend Trump’s inauguration on January 20th, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. George H. W. Bush won’t attend due to health issues, according to CNN report.
President-elect Trump is having difficulties securing attendance list for his inauguration, with many stars declining to appear. Even some of Trump’s supporters among celebrities have backed out of the inauguration, fearing potential disapproval from fans who are opposed to the incoming president.
Anti-Trump sentiment from numerous Hollywood performers has prompted Trump to denounce them on Twitter.
The so-called “A” list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!
Up so far, the following musicians have confirmed their attendance at the 2017 inauguration:
Among other performers, the list includes Jackie Evancho, 16 year-old America’s Got Talent star, who will sing the national anthem, Radio City Rockettes and the Missouri State University Chorale.
