President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attended the final Kennedy Center Honors of his presidency and it was ugly.
And the ugly didn’t stop with whatever green monstrosity Mrs. Obama was draped in.
The group of mostly left-wing celebrities who gather once a year to pat each other on the back did not have a lot of love for the next president.
Host Stephen Colbert “joked” that next year’s honorees would be Gary Busey, Meat Loaf and Scott Baio, the Washington Post reported.
R & B singer Mavis Staples said she would not have attended if Trump was president instead of Obama and the award involved a trip to his White House.
“Heck no!”she said. “No way. It would have been awkward.”
Another honoree, who asked that their name not be divulged, also told the Post they wouldn’t have attended.
“Oh no, I wouldn’t come,” they said. “Not if it was Trump.”
But despite all the Trump-hate there is one member of the Trump family who is probably thrilled with what they saw at the show.
The next first lady, Melania Trump, must have been breathing a sigh of relief to know that the designers who dressed the current first lady have vowed not to dress her.

Social media roundly mocked her choice of apparel.
@DailyMail Good Lord, what roll of cheap ass wrapping paper did that walmart looking dress come from?

@DailyMail Nice to see Michelle’s absolutely horrid taste in clothing hasn’t improved.
