    Going forward, Trump should stick to his rallies where attendees can be controlled and committed to cheering him on -- rather than booing him.

    He skipped the throwing of the first baseball tradition early on in his presidency for the same reason. Can't control who may be there to boo you. Can you imagine having crowds booing the president captured by the media to be played over and over again for the world (and our enemies) to see?

    Now if he would just not show up for work we would along with the rest of our allies would all celebrate.

    Mom jeans man is gone said: "Remember Hollywood are those that pretend to be someone else. Not what most people are, thank goodness!"

    That's what got us this b actor from a silly fake reality show, oh and he did have that stint as an all star wrestler, but sure, Trump's not acting?

    @boneheaded, the "Your not from round these parts are ya?" is a great fallback position when you have nothing to rebut.

    Trump would gladly go, if he could control the message and audience, and make it about praising his greatness, like his self serving rally's.

    That same free speech you support for neo nazis and white supremacists should be supported for these people who don't want to be part of the President making a non political event a political event. You remember how he did that at the boy scout event right?

    Has nothing to do with fake news.

    Interesting that we are living in a time when people thank the President for NOT showing up.

    If Trump were to go, no one else would show up.

    So. much. winning.

    These people love our America that stands for "liberty and justice for all."

    Refusing to be (dis)honored by a man who openly opposes American values in his words and tweets and official policy is not hate, it is standing for the American way.

    I'm glad the stance taken by strong people worked, so the awards can go on and have meaning.

    These people need to stop watching fake news and learn to love their neighbor and their country! Too much hatred, bigotry and violence already without them celebrating it in the name of entertainment! Good place to avoid, even for our POTUS!

    I very well doubt Trump was missed.
