When Madonna took the stage during her MDNA tour’s stop in Washington D.C., she took a few minutes to speak to the crowd and exclaim her support of the “black muslim” who currently resides in the White House. She promised her fans that if Barack Obama wins the election in November, that she would treat them to a strip show. Seriously?
It doesn’t stop there, the pop star went on to compare the President to historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr.
In hindsight, she probably realized it would have been a good idea for her to take a few minutes backstage to hop on the internet to do a bit of preliminary research before addressing the crowd. But instead, she went out there and made a complete fool of herself.
Now before you get all hot and bothered, we don’t necessarily disagree with Madonna’s viewpoints, we just are skeptical of how she went about voicing them.
Take a few minutes to watch this video. If you remember anything from U.S. History in high school, you’ll notice that some of what she says isn’t entirely accurate. But whatever, she’s an entertainer, not a politician. Which begs the question… WTF is she doing? We all know which way her male fans swing, so why would she waste valuable set time to endorse the President, who we all know is a big advocate of gay rights. Isn’t she preaching to the choir here?
*Earlier this month in North Carolina, Madonna exposed a ‘Obama’ tattoo she had placed on her back while explaining to her fans her adoration of both Barack and Michelle Obama.
