Also, very talented. A wonderful choice. Go Joe baby 🍼 you picked two sexy babes 😘😍 JT 🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 Yep just one more reason not to watch .

A Covid spreading event! Not interested all those at the inauguration were MIA last year while our cities were being looted and set on fire and our police were being attacked . Total hypocracy! Yea make sure you lend your voices while my wife is dying in a hospital because China and joe Biden started this virus to make trump look bad. Just remember this... we reap what we sew.

Mr. Honorable President elect Joe Biden. I am happy you are on my Twitter account, I am a Democrat since I was a kid. and I know you are getting things done. and this is your Twitter account as well, your Podium is here. Use it the way you want.🇺🇸🇺🇸 That's the fist he puts up kids asses. What’s Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez going to cost us! Let’s raise everyone’s Social Security age to pay for it!

Here we go. The DEMs are raising everyone’s taxes and looking to cut Social Security benefits to fund all of there ridiculous plans, failed DEM cities and failed DEM pension plans. We’re all screwed now! 🤮 A Calm Kind Soft Loving Respectful Man! Oh! In This HELL World we , Hope he Overcomes! Jesus be his Eyes, Mind and Heart! Wish him All The BLESSINGS!

I’m not a huge fan of Gaga, but she 100% deserves this opportunity because she was campaigning hard for Biden. ❤️ Skanks Kanye wasn’t available? This Lady Gaga? Yeah - no thank you Stay away from the left! Go middle president. Who cares So this why we not getting the $2k? Y’all having a vanity party in the middle of the fucking pandemic? Amazing. We deserve this timeline.

Who you trying to punch? Are you inciting people to fight? Hmmm. Two washed up singers. That's about the right talent level for this 'presidency'* ... reported by ABC News, which is also about the right talent level for this event. Guess Bette & Streisand were busy. and both of them will try make him b..j too.. demonic no moral, no shame, sin people..

Holy shit this is hilarious. At this point it feels like the Presidency and inauguration has become a complete joke here in the US. Biden taking office 'you know what would be good? If you had JLo and gaga singing for me.' Lol shit is wild man The power is in your hands, the future of America is in your hands. You have so many people by your side, who loves democracy. You will have this platform, to reach All Americans.

🤮 Someone should tell them not to bother. Ain't gonna be no 'naugerashun. This is funny you all think he's getting sworn in😂😂 Declassified files coming..wonder if he likes orange jumpsuits 😂😂 Good !!! it will be memorable, add the peculiarity that The 46 President's, inauguration will be...NONE PEOPLE, but 20,000 NATIONAL GUARD: The First MILITARIZED PRESIDENTIAL inauguration in USA history, like any banana Republic . IT IS MEMORABLE

Yayyy!!! I’m in favor of the opposite of this performance celebration. Get in, take the oath, gtfo. Put you in a Pope mobile Good thing they both SUCK!!!!! Just like JoeBiden Tell me at 3200 in almost a year of COVID how is this country the best in the world, hell there are 3rd world countries that are better than we are

two whores to go along with harris Ring a great JLO outfit for us will ya BillysGodchild Good! Who else? Yuk 🤮🤮 They are to old for Creepy Joe Obviously there are no black people on that committee. i was hoping it would always be jackie evancho. this is bullsh QUEEN GAGA How about some Unity for our 46th President, huh? Give it up for President Biden and Dr. Jill!!!

Must be to give potential assassins a tougher decision to make. Well Vanilla Ice and Berlin were still coming down off performing at the Trump Christmas gala. What’s the point of a performance? This is dumb. Trumps inauguration: “SPRINGSTEEN! No he hates you. SPRINGSTEEN COVER BAND! No they hate you too. Who the fucks Three Doors Down? Ok fine they said they’d do it.” Biden’s inauguration: “so so far Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez want in, we may have to cut some people.”

So are they performing on him or for him? So confused right now Waiting for the first openly gay male of female president. Who keeps booking jlo she can’t sing I hope they can keep a distance from groping Joe. Definitely won’t miss it ladygaga JLo 🙏🙏🙏💯💯 Sex trafficking and drugs Boy, I’m glad I didn’t like them before this.

Cringe Jenny hs really let us down Throwin shade at CardiB ladygaga performing for Joe and then smoking crack with Hunter. This is fantastic! JLo? Who doing the real singing? Why All the injustices that real people faced all last year, protesting for Black Lives, equity and equal liberty where tf was Jennifer Lopez's voice? No problem profiting from black culture though, right? Girl BYE.

Jennifer Lopez? Seriously? Why is Jennifer Lopez gonna be there? She can’t sing. No, she can’t. No, for real though she has no pipes. I heard Ted Nugent graciously declined . JoeBiden BidenInaugural remembers ladygaga for this publicity, but forgot her in his acceptance speech. smh bierasure Anddddd WHO GIVES A FLYING FUCK

Now that’s pure power ! We don’t kneel for the national anthem anymore🤨 Are you CERTAIN that Lady Gaga will be? So they will be singing virtually? Is Jennifer going to use a stripper pole again? Is Lady Gaga going to be wearing the blood and flesh again like in the past? Jennifer Lopez to 'lend' vocals? So it will be Ashanti singing? Nice.

Nobody cares about them Lady Gaga gives me strange CHILLS.... I don't know why. Something weird about her makes me scared. SB performance was awful. I don't want to see her butt or crack every 2 minutes. How about real singers and musicians? This is the problem with politics, people care more bout celebrities than tax policy. Americans need to grow up

Good job creepy Joe! Right... The worse 2 demons singing voodoo praises Who cares Ugh. So tired of these two women. 😁 Is this necessary? Damn Joe you couldn't find any real singers? Hired help 😕 At a huge price no doubt All politicians should think again. They live in luxury at the expense of taxpayers money. The rich are rich and the poor are very poor. We want change. End all wars. Every family matters. All lives matter.

Maybe they get 200 people to show up to see them at least. So IAmChanteMoore will be singing JLo’s part.. just book Chante please 47th* 🤞 Argh Yes Lady Gaga has been hanging out with the Biden Family after all
