60 Democrats in Congress are boycotting President-elect Trump's inauguration on Friday, including Georgia Representative John Lewis and New York Reps. Yvette Clark, Jerry Nadler, Nydia Velazquez, Adriano Espaillat and Jose Serrano, to name a few. Trump has been too busy tweeting about The Today Show to individually attack each boycotter (other than Lewis, of course), but he does want them to return their tickets because " we need to make it look like we don't have empty seats so badly."

Trump made his plea on Fox & Friends today, claiming Team Trump reeeeeaaaaallllllllyyyyyyyyy needs those tickets for his very special day. After throwing some more shade at Lewis, he noted, "[a]s far as other people not going, that’s OK, because we need seats so badly." Everyone wants a front row seat to see his tremendous speech!

"I hope they give me their tickets. Are they going to give us their tickets or are they going to give them to other people? No, what happens to their tickets? I hope they’re gonna give us their tickets," Trump mused with the air of a man who knows, deep down inside, that no one wants to come to his party, no matter how many times he pays Facebook to invite them.

Still, Trump might have found a few people he can force into attending future events—members of the military. "Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump told the Washington Post. "And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military."

Okay, what does that entail?

"That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military," he added.

Oh good, nothing like having a leader set his military on the streets to show all the little people who's got the guns. Plus New Yorkers tend to react very well to casual military flyovers, no panicking at all!
