One of the celebrity speakers at Saturday's Women's March on Washington was singer Madonna. Staying rather true to her "Rebel Heart" persona, she did not hold back in her address to the crowd. In addition to thrice saying "f--k" live on television completely uncensored, she also admitted to having "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House."
Watch the full speech here: (Content warning.)
Madonna had been a vocal, outspoken, and and times, outrageous, supporter of Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign. At one point, she offered to perform oral sex on Clinton voters, and she also posed nude in an effort(?) to get people to vote for Clinton. She performed a short, free concert in New York City in a last-ditch attempt to inspire people to vote.
Post-election, the "Material Girl" singer has continued to speak her mind against Trump and his proposed policies.
It's one thing to say a few curse words for shock value, but let's be honest: if anyone other than a celebrity said something about wanting to blow up the White House, Secret Service would be knocking on their door. Those kinds of comments are completely inappropriate to make--especially in light of the violence on Friday--and that kind of rhetoric isn't something to just joke about.
Many of the women marching spoke out against "normalizing Trump." We shouldn't "normalize assassination" either.
