Dumped inaugural parade announcer attends women's march

Charlie Brotman, the long-time presidential inauguration announcer who President Donald Trump chose not to use for his inauguration Friday, instead attended the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday.

Linda Sarsour, the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York and one of the march’s organizers, tweeted a photo of Brotman with her at the march Saturday.

“I had to get him here. Charlie Brotman, inauguration announcer since Eisenhower dropped by Trump is HERE with us!” she wrote.

1. Yes if anyone is still wondering who that old man announcing at the DC rally was . It was the

gentleman that held the tradition that trump kicked to the curb . Good on him and hope he is completely over being dissed and realizes there wasn't much to announce anyway

After hearing that he would not be the announcer for Trump’s parade, Brotman said he thought he was “going to commit suicide.”
“I was disappointed because I thought I would be the announcer, and then when I read the email, I thought I was going to commit suicide. It was really terrible,” he said on CNN earlier this month.

2. He's the one that said the marchers were "Charlie's angels".

Sweet old dude. Glad he was there.

4. He was indeed sweet -

although I had to explain the "Charlie's Angels" reference to a couple millennials standing near me.

How soon they forget!
