Madonna Gives Confusing Obama Endorsement
Madonna‘s made her allegiance to President Obama‘s re-election campaign well-known – recall the tattoo she showed off not long ago – and so it’s not surprising that she rallied attendees at her MDNA concert stop in Washington, D.C., on Monday to vote for him.
The surprising part is the way she did it. In a video clip – which uses strong language, so be forewarned – Madonna’s talk touched on history and civil rights, and she told her fans, “Y’all better vote for f*****g Obama, OK? For better or for worse, alright, we have a black Muslim in the White House.”
“Now that is some s***,” she continued. “That means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, g******it.”
A rousing endorsement, for sure, but, as The Atlantic noted, a little on the odd side considering that it’s hard to tell whether Madonna is being serious, confused, or sarcastic with her “black Muslim” comment.
