The Trumps are skipping out on the Kennedy Center Honors due to hurt feelings


- The Trumps released a statement saying that they would not be attending the Kennedy Center Honors “to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction," two days after Carmen de Lavallade announced that she would be skipping the reception, and a day after the President's Arts and Humanities commitee resigned en masse.

- Carmen de Lavallade, a dancer, actress, and choreographer, issued a statement, saying that “[i]n light of the socially divisive and morally caustic narrative that our current leadership is choosing to engage in, and in keeping with the principles that I and so many others have fought for, I will be declining the invitation to attend the reception at the White House."

- No word on whether the admin plans to crack down on American cultural icons, sulk at Mar-a-Lago, or both.
