Donald Trump doesn’t want A-list celebrities at his Inauguration anyhow, just ask him.
On Thursday evening, Trump sent out this grown-up sounding tweet claiming A-listers are clamoring to get tickets to the Inauguration but he doesn’t want them to come.
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!

However, according to an insider that spoke The Wrap, Trump’s version of events is not exactly true.
“Trump is very unhappy,” the unnamed Trump source said. “[Talent recruiter Suzanne] Bender has been tasked with salvaging this…It’s a Hail Mary.”
In fact, so few A-listers are willing to attend Trump’s Inauguration, they have even resorted to bribing talent scouts and agents to get celebrities on board.
Yet with less than one month to go, few celebrities are confirmed for the Inaugural Events and three official balls and many of those on Trump’s wish list have reportedly turned him down, including Elton John and Andrea Bocelli.
To make matters worse, just hours before his sulky tweet, another A-Lister, Celine Dion, also declined an invite to Trump’s Inaugural events.
