There are still people willing to pay money to see Madonna on stage, so she’s currently touring the country with her MDNA tour. Every night, she’s been stopping the show to pontificate about the state of things in the world.
Lately, her comments have been about the presidential election. At her show in D.C. last night, Madonna implored the crowd to re-elect Barack Obama this fall:
“Y’all better vote for fucking Obama, okay? For better or for worse, we have a black Muslim in the White House.”
Yep, she called him a Muslim. Here’s the video:
I’ll be damned if that isn’t the worst endorsement in the history of politics. If it wasn’t so clear that Madonna is an insane old woman, I’d say that it absolutely must have been a Colbert Report-esque act of satire. Madonna’s no stranger to manufactured controversy, so this is just her stirring things up, right? I’m not so sure.
I want to believe that she’s sarcastically mocking those who still assert that Obama is a Muslim, but it’s not clear. She’s wearing a freaking black beret. How can anyone who makes the decision to wear such a thing be taken seriously?
