Literally, I have NO MORE WORDS…
This just does not pass the smell test.
’80s pop star Terri Nunn (of the band Berlin) apologized for performing at Trump’s maskless Mar-a-Lago New Year’s Eve party in Palm Beach, Florida.
She incredibly claims she didn’t know about Florida’s (and Mar-a-Lago’s) disregard for coronavirus safety, and claims that her presence at the event was not intended as a political endorsement.
Writing on the band’s Facebook page, she said: “I am truly sorry I performed at Mar-a-Lago and would not have done so if I’d known what I learned while I was there. My goal in performing was not to support a political party. I see now that that’s not the way it appeared and I am apologetic for that as well.”
“The contract stated it was a small Covid-safe event for the members of Mar-a-Lago,” Nunn continued. “Unfortunately it was not Covid-safe anywhere in Florida. I had no idea masks and social distancing were not required. I thought I was current on all Covid news everywhere, but clearly I was not. I was shocked by Florida and Mar-a-Lago’s lack of regard for the pandemic and if I’d known I would never have gone.”
“Once I fulfilled my contractual obligation, I left the event as quickly as I could,” Nunn added. “It is a mistake I regret. I took a Covid 19 test yesterday and tested negative. My apologies to those in the LGBTQ community who thought my performance was a statement against them. I have been and always will be fully supportive.”
Sooooo, let me get this straight. You had no idea that Mar-a-Lago was Donald Trump‘s, that a performance there would be seen by your gay fans as an endorsement of the president, that you didn’t know it would be a massless party, and that Florida – FLORIDA! – had little regard for following pandemic guidelines….
That’s a LOT you didn’t know. And a LOT that a simple Google search could have turned up. Where are your managers? I don’t buy any of this.
