Anyone in the arts is a snowflake so easily bullied. They all want to appear cool and be loved and admired. I used to work in that world so know whereof I speak! Good riddance.

Actually, no... Based on your generalizations, I highly doubt you do.

While Trump's backers continue to support him regardless of his failure and simply UNCOUTHNESS... Businesses and others are mass exiting Councils and Committees.. But what jumped out to me and will BOTHER HEIR TRUMP is when 3 charities cancel Mar-a-Lago events amid Trump backlash!!! Businesses fleeing the committees in WH .. a number of other committee's are too. Now business is going to hit HIS wallet too!!

I can tell you, IF there's something that bothers Trump more than having HIS PERSONAL Agenda/$$$ in his POCKET when his BRAND being downgraded LOOK OUT! The priority to Trump is padding his POCKET.

Ivanka/Kushner/Donald Jr/Eric Trump are are going to be directly affected.. Money laundering etc etc etc and there's NO WAY his POTUS status will be able to save the TRUMP BRAND!! It's not just America.. but INTERNATIONALLY!!

Once Trump realizes there's no BENEFIT to him.. He'll bail.. Just wait and see!!

I'm hoping Trump is also having the place searched for listening and surveillance devices.

What's to discuss? Bring every American home and wish the Afghanis well .

If you look at the first letter in each paragraph it spells RESIST. love it!

Maybe it was just a matter of these artists no longer being able to serve someone who has gilded plumbing fixtures.

I guess it's taking some time to install the revolving door in the West Wing.

What do you consider art? Music, film, tv, literature, etc.?

All your ranting and raving means nothing. Appearances are nobody wants to work with Trump.

Doesn't matter what you think of people in the Art world, corporate world, etc. Just doesn't matter.

This administration has a PR disaster on their hands right now.

You mean on things like STATUES? Trump supporters suddenly became fans of statues this week. Those come out of funds for the arts. Maybe they'll have to dispose of the removed statues because they can't find a home for them, or don't have the funds to re-install them elsewhere because the arts council was disbanded and didn't come up with a needed plan for re-homing 29 statues of Robert E Lee and his horse.

Maybe some investor will buy them and open a new theme park called KKK-ville.
