Trump's absence at National Kennedy Center honors

Here we go again: President Trump and the first lady are skipping Sunday’s Kennedy Center Honors. The first couple has chosen to sit out three years in a row, although their predecessors have headlined the event since it launched in 1978.

Here we go again: President Trump and the first lady are skipping Sunday’s Kennedy Center Honors. The first couple has chosen to sit out three years in a row, although their predecessors have headlined the event since it launched in 1978.

On one hand, this is a bad thing: The president and first lady traditionally bring glamour and prestige to the annual celebration of American art and culture, highlighting the power of art to bring us together regardless of political differences and the importance of support and philanthropy.

On the other hand, the absence of Trump — under threat of impeachment and quick to take offense — is a relief to almost all involved. Not that anyone will say it out loud, but the odds that someone (an honoree, a performer, an audience member) might say or do something political at this nonpartisan evening is, frankly, uncomfortably high.
