President Donald Trump chose not to use longtime parade announcer Charlie Brotman for his inauguration Friday.
In response, Brotman has been enlisted to be the announcer for the “Women’s March on Washington” on Saturday.
Executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, Linda Sarsour, helped organize the march and posted a selfie of herself with Brotman at the parade on Twitter. Brotman has been the announcer for presidential inaugurations since 1957.
“I had to get him here. Charlie Brotman, inauguration announcer since Eisenhower dropped by Trump is HERE with us!” she wrote as a caption.
Brotman released his own statement on the matter:
“I have announced the presidential inaugural parade, which the crowed here are much larger than at the parade. Today I’ve got a new job and I am tickled to have that job. It’s my honor to welcome the national organizers for the National Women’s March on Washington. The impossible is now taking place.”
