Madonna Says We Have a "Black Muslim" In the White House
Either MADONNA was being sarcastic during her show in Washington, D.C. Monday night or she doesn't know our president very well. Because in trying to show her support, she referred to PRESIDENT OBAMA as a "black Muslim".
--She said, quote, "Y'all better vote for [effing] Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House, okay? Now that is some [stuff]. That's some amazing [stuff]."
--"It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, [gosh darn it]."
--She also praised the First Lady, saying, quote, "Thank God for Michelle Obama."
--Elsewhere during the show, Madonna exposed her bare back in order to show off a fake tattoo, like she's been doing throughout her tour. This one said, "OBAMA".
--And she threatened to disrobe further if the president is re-elected. She said, quote, "When Obama is in the White House for a second term I'll take it all off."
--While Madonna sounds pretty sincere in the video when she calls Obama a Muslim, she claims she did it on purpose.
--She says, quote, "I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim . . . though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were?
--"The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is . . . nor should anyone else in America."
