He will replace Charlie Brotman, 89, the announcer at every inauguration since 1957.
Brotman said he got the “shock of his life” when he was sacked by Mr. Trump’s aides.
The Obamas had pleaded with him to leave a swing-set they installed for their daughters for Mr. Trump’s son, Barron.
The President-elect asked his aides to throw it away immediately!
