There was a Women’s March on Washington on Saturday to protest against President Donald Trump. One of the speakers was the famous singer Madonna. During her speech she said she thought about “blowing up the White House”. White House is the place where the President and his family lives.
The Secret Service whose job is to protect the President of the United States and his family is not amused. They said they are going to make a thorough investigation of her claim.
The moment she heard that the secret service is on her case, the roaring lion turned into a pussycat.
Now she issued a statement as follows:
'I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things - one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn't solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love.'
So it was a metaphor. When she is in trouble with the Secret Service, she starts to back peddle immediately. Not so courageous after all.
You have a right to be angry and outrage at the President. You scold him. You ridicule him. You even make fun of him. But don’t ever threaten his life.
I think the Secret Service should make an example out of her. Otherwise, anyone can threaten the President of the United States and claim it was only a metaphor. Some crazy may even take up on Madonna’s thoughts. Hope it never happens.
