Madonna Says She Has Friends Who Support Trump, Reveals Their Reasoning

Madonna Says She Has Friends Who Support Trump, Reveals Their Reasoning

Madonna is opening up about her thoughts on the election and her friends who support Donald Trump in a candid new interview with Billboard.

The 58-year-old entertainer is the magazine’s Woman of the Year and she talks about ageism in the industry as well. Check it out:

On the outcome of the election: “It felt like someone died. It felt like a ­combination of the heartbreak and betrayal you feel when someone you love more than anything leaves you, and also a death. I feel that way every morning; I wake up and say, ‘Oh, wait, Donald Trump is still the president,’ and it wasn’t a bad dream that I had. It feels like women betrayed us. The percentage of women who voted for Trump was insanely high.”

On why women voted for Trump: “Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external. A lot of it has do with jealousy and some sort of tribal inability to accept that one of their kind could lead a nation.”

On what her friends who support Trump said: “That they would rather have a successful businessman running the country than a woman who lies. Just absurd. But people don’t have faith in government as we know it. We live in a country that’s run by ­bankers. In a way, it makes sense that Donald Trump is the president. Because money rules. Not intelligence, not experience, not a moral compass, not the ability to make wise ­decisions, not the ability to think of the future of the human race.”

On ageism in the music world: “I don’t care. It’s the rest of society that cares. I don’t ever think about my age until someone says something about it. I feel that I have wisdom, experience, knowledge and a point of view that is important. Can a teenager relate to that? Probably not. But that’s OK. I understand that. “Relevance” is a catchphrase that people throw out because we live in a world full of discrimination. Age is only brought up with regard to women. It’s connected to sexism, chauvinism and misogyny. When Leonardo is 60 years old, no one is going to talk about his relevance. Am I relevant as a female in this society that hates women? Well, to people who are educated and are not chauvinists or ­misogynists, yes.”

On including her kids on her social media accounts: “When I post their things, they give me permission. A lot of times they’ll send me pictures and say, ‘Please don’t post this,’ and I won’t. They have private accounts, and I respect that. I also consider my ­children part of my work and the work that we do together.”

    Such an intelligent woman, I love when she is like this

  • j b

    Madonna proved with her statements about why Donald Trump supporters will always be called Deplorables by Republicans and Democrats alike.

  • Marie

    That was the best explanation and she is absolutely right.

  • Absurdist

    this old hag is completely out of touch with reality.

  • Sally

    No, Madge – Women don’t hate all women – they hate Hillary and they hate you.

  • Sally

    If by “intelligent,” you mean “clueless.” Agree.

  • rubie

    wow….she hit great points and I have to agree with most of them, sad but true….

  • Katherine McChesney

    For Madonna to speak about morals is really laughable.

  • Mlova

    No, I mean intelligent as it is defined in all dictionaries. I really cannot think of any dictionary where intelligence poses as a synonym for clueless. What a warped version of the English language you have my dear.

    Anyway, you hate Madonna, we get it, we accept it and still don’t care. It’s been 34 years of her being hated, it really means nothing now and hasn’t impacted her one bit; in fact, I have always suspected it’s people like you that actually inadvertently encourage her to keep going, so please, do keep it up, I’m hoping for another 30 years of this remarkable woman.

    Madonna loves to piss people off, and as long as there are pressed people like you to trigger, she’ll keep on firing

  • caladan59

    Yes, the women that I know who voted for Trump did it just because they hate women. Really? Madonna is just another clueless “celebrity” not living in the real world. I wish she (and others like her) would just stick to doing their job and refrain from lecturing the rest of the country.

  • gwen

    Madonna is a ……what’s the word?…….oh yeah……A Fucktard!

  • BRNDZMBAZADOR

    Madonna is so smart. I cannot believe people (mostly sexist men and jealous women) constantly have this venom toward her. What has she done that is so wrong? She’s raised awareness for AIDS, the environment, gays, minorities…She has always stood for the arts, her songs are usually about love, she is a strong woman that girls these days should (and perhaps unconsciously do) look up to…She is right, we live in a society that hates women, especially a woman who dares to speak her mind and a woman who is more powerful than they will ever be.

    The world is constantly proving this woman and her “crazy opinions” correct. Everything she says is true and the truth is a tough pill to swallow for America and the world in general.

  • BRNDZMBAZADOR

    Thanks for proving everything she said correct. Good day. I think you are out of touch with reality if you think your opinion even matters to her. And no, she’s not out of touch with reality…She seems to be spot on with everything she is saying in this interview. Lastly, “Old Hag”…How very sexist and ageist of you. This old hag is more educated than you, richer than you and has contributed to this world in a way that makes you seem like just a grain of sand.

    No, Midge. I love women and would have been delighted if Carly Fiorina had been the nominee instead of Trump, and that she had won the presidency. What I don’t like is a conniving monster of a liar – that’s Hillary Clinton.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    She’s just another Democrat who can’t accept that her candidate didn’t win. It wouldn’t have mattered WHO the candidate had been. It is a touch worse because they so arrogantly insisted for months that Trump would never win and that “the race is basically over” because Hillary “had it in the bag”. THAT is why there are so many tears from Democrat women. Because they didn’t see this coming.

    If you’re okay with this bitch who doesn’t even know you exist accusing women of hating women, then you’re just as stupid as she is.

  • Orionsangel

    Trump lies and has failed businesses and 6 bankruptcies.

  • Orionsangel

    They hate Hillary because they’re sheeples and believe everything they’re told about her by the ones that think like them.

  • Orionsangel

    The same could be said about Trump and yet he’s spoken about morals and he’s gonna be the president.

  • Orionsangel

    You can say that about Trump as well.

  • Orionsangel

    Most Trump supporters voted out of spite because they hate that America is changing. It’s becoming more progressive and accepting of others and there’s less Americans who believe in faith, but try as you might you can’t stop the change. Time marches forward not backward.

  • Orionsangel

    Well you and Christians voted for this as your first lady. So you shouldn’t talk about morals either.

  • Sally

    So you think women are stupid, and have to be told what to do by sheep like you. No wonder.

  • caladan59

    You keep thinking that if it helps you sleep at night.

  • HG

    Lmao at this celeb tard and her lala land delusions! Trump won because women, Latinos and even African Americans finally caught on to what a crook and a liar killary is and had goals for self centered agendas.She would sell our country to the highest bidder in a heartbeat for money for her and clueless daughter who lived off foundation money.

  • HG

    And still a better choice than a killer liar who sold us to the highest bidder and breached security with her emails and her daughter abused foundation money for her wedding and yearly salary , and her perv rapist hubby who makes trump look like an amateur where women are concerned . So one trump against three Clinton crooks sounds better by the day!

    Crazy is a nice word for the I’ll give a free BJ if you vote for Hillary moron!! No wonder her son wanted to stay with dad. She sure is showing her sexism In using her mouth to get what she wants RMFE !

  • HG

    She did offer free BJ for votes

  • Sally

    That contemptuous attitude, and your projection of your own hate upon your fellow Americans, are exactly why you lost. And why there are now fewer Democrats in national and state government than any time since 1922. Now that’s what I call “moving forward!”

  • Andrea92

    I think she’s right in a way,even though I don’t think it’s necessarily hate ,just people not trusting women to have what it takes to be leaderships. As sad as it sounds,women are still seen as the weak gender.. Not in the entire planet ,but the US is still a very sexist country in that way.

    you haters can eat shit

  • Phil the Donahue

    Trump is a crybaby old hag. His neck looks like he swallowed a turtle. He also has sex with 14 year old girls for which he was charged. Madonna is more successful and has more cash than he ever will. She tours the world you know. The places where u would need a passport to see. Have a passport?

  • Phil the Donahue

    A very successful one so she must not be too tarded.

  • Brenda

    Madonna, if don’t want to feel like a doormat don’t offer yourself to men sexually for a vote! How degrading for you….please dont stand for me for I am a reputable woman who finds you totally disgusting!
