Is tarnished by association with this man whatever his government title may be:
Will he want to be photographed in similar poses with the Sisters of the Choir? Will he want to grab any inappropriate parts of their bodies?
I understand the sentiment expressed by LDS Church Public Affairs that it's an honor to sing sacred, patriotic music in front of a national crowd. It's the man in front of that crowd I'm concerned about.
Yeah, he won a majority of the electoral college constitutionally as he lost the popular vote by nearly three million (!!! Look it up!) and a distinct minority of Americans made him president.
And this is not just a political dispute with someone I happen to disagree with on policy (which I do most strongly). This man stands for everything contrary to family values. He has bragged about assaulting women in the crudest terms. He has been otherwise very crude in numerous public statements (and Tweets) about Women. He has publicly bragged about affairs and his two divorces. His current wife is a former nude model. Trump himself has appeared in Playboy porn videos (fortunately, with clothes on). He has made questionably crude public comments about his own daughter.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir stands for much more important values. It should not be cheapened by this performance. Some of us feel very strongly about this as the man to be president has made us traumatized and ill.
I have permission from my wonderful and brave daughter to share her perspective on the election of Trump:
