    >> A member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir says she “could never look myself in the mirror again with self respect” if she performed at Donald Trump’s inauguration.

    Jan Chamberlin said in a lengthy Facebook post Thursday that she is resigning from the Christian group after it agreed to sing for the President-elect on Jan. 20. Saying that she views the performance as a moral issue, the five-year veteran said “it will appear that Choir is endorsing tyranny and fascism by singing for this man.”

    "I only know I could never 'throw roses to Hitler,'" Chamberlain wrote. "And I certainly could never sing for him."

    ... Chamberlin later deleted the scathing post, noting she had received an immense amount of hateful messages. <<​

    Without a doubt. Who would expect any less after all the "in the old days they'd be carried out on a stretcher" type of rhetoric.

    Her best line:

    "Evil people prosper when good people stand by and do nothing".

    Bravo, patriot. :salute:

    How? Didn't she resign? How is reporting on reality = fake? I guess if you don't like it = fake.

    You just hate anyone that disagrees with you.

    Doesn't say which way her politics lean but... she's in Utah. Calculate the arithmetic.

    Rump is not exactly a popular guy with Mormons.

    Fake news? Really? I did a Google search on this myself, and it is reported in many different areas, even on FOX News.
