BREAKING: Donald Trump Just Made A DISGUSTING Change To His Inauguration – City Of Washington, DC Is INFURIATED!

The man who has announced every inaugural parade for the past 60 years, who Donald Trump did not invite back this year, said he thought he “was going to commit suicide” after he heard he’d been replaced.

The 89-year-old Charles Brotman, who once the voice of the Washington Senators baseball team, has announced every inauguration parade since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957.

He told WJLA he was “heartbroken” and “destroyed” by the decision, telling the station, “I’ve been doing this for 60 years.”

“I was disappointed because I thought I would be the announcer, and then when I read the email, I thought I was going to commit suicide. It was really terrible,” Charles Brotman told CNN on Monday.

In his place, the Trump team has chosen Steve Ray, a 58-year-old Washington-based freelance announcer who has worked with the MLB’s Washington Nationals and for local radio stations.

“All of us think of Charlie as as much of the Washington landscape as any building,” Ray told The Washington Post. “I’m on top of the world. From my point of view, I am not filling his shoes, I’m not taking his place, I just happen to be the guy who’s next.”

Trump transition spokesman Boris Epshteyn said Brotman will be honored as “announcer chairman emeritus.

“Since 1957, millions of Americans and countless entertainers have come to recognize Charlie Brotman as the voice of the inaugural parade,” he said in a statement. “The Presidential Inaugural Committee will be proud to honor Charlie as Announcer Chairman Emeritus on January 20. We are thrilled for Steve Ray to be introducing a new generation of Americans to the grand traditions of the inaugural parade.”

Brotman told WJLA he wished Ray well, saying, “As opposed to — boy, I hope he fouls up so they say, ‘We want Charlie back.’ No. I don’t want that at all.”
