Isn’t it still August?

The White House is putting out a casting call for some Christmastime entertainment, giving musicians, singers and others the chance to perform at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
With less than five months to go until Dec. 25, the White House said Friday that “initial planning for the 2018 season is underway.”
In addition to its annual call for volunteers to decorate the executive mansion for the holidays, this year the White House is also asking for entertainers to join the Yuletide festivities.
The White House “invites local musicians including high school bands, choirs, and Christmas-themed entertainers to apply for the opportunity to perform during the Holiday Open Houses throughout the month of December,” a statement from first lady Melania Trump’s White House press office said.
“This is the first time to my knowledge that the application process has been made open to the public in this manner,” Jennifer Pickens, a White House social expert and author of “Christmas at the White House,” tells ITK.
Yeah, I don’t remember the Obamas EVER having to advertise on Craig’s List for artists to come and perform at the White House.
In fact, I think that if they had held an open casting call that the line of A-list entertainers would have extended all the way down Pennsylvania Avenue.
But hey who can blame the Trumps?
After all the only people they could get to play at the inaugural was The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The Rockettes, and some chick who placed second on “America’s Got Talent.”
