It is no secret that there has been a substantial uprise against President Donald Trump since he defeated Hillary Clinton on November 8, 2016. Throughout the campaign and since, slogans like “love trumps hate” have been all across popular culture and social media.
Today’s women’s march taking place most predominantly in Washington D.C., but also at other locations throughout the country hoped to capitalize off of the outrage. With hundreds of thousands of people, there certainly was a substantial showing of those voicing their discontent with the new Administration.
The march in Washington today hosted a number of Congressional representatives, Senators, Hollywood stars, etc.. Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Madonna, Michael Moore, Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Senator Cory Booker (D-IL), were just a few of those who spoke on stage at the event.
Madonna’s speech was one which certainly raised some eyebrows. It was originally aired on live television, although it had to be cut due to excessive profanity and the contents of what she was saying. Not surprisingly, she voiced her disgust with President Trump, as well as her remorse that Hillary Clinton did not win the election to be President of the United States.
In a speech filled with profanity, Madonna made active threats against Donald Trump, as well as those who may not agree with the message of the march. She explained “To our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything: F— you!”
This was just one excerpt from what she said, as she told the crowd,“Yes I’m angry, yes I’m outraged, yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she added, “but I know that this won’t change anything.”
“Yes I’m angry, yes I’m outraged, yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”
It is expected that the Secret Service will likely investigate this, just as they do with virtually any threat made against a prominent official, like the President.
Certainly, there is likely to be very little outcry in the mainstream media regarding these statements. When former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh voiced a similar sentiment toward President Obama in a Tweet last year, he was bashed on CNN and virtually every news organization.
