Lady Gaga Blasts Trump And Pence In Scathing Speech During Vegas Performance

As the U.S. government shutdown grinds on with no signs of ending, Lady Gaga addressed the D.C. dysfunction from the stage of her “Enigma” show in Las Vegas on Saturday.

In some withering remarks, Gaga called out President Donald Trump for causing the shutdown that is leaving hundreds of thousands of government workers without paycheques.

“There are people that live paycheque to paycheque that need their money,” she said, earning applause from the audience.

She also had some words for Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen Pence, who recently started a new job as a teacher in a religious school that explicitly bans LGBTQ students and staff.

“And to Mike Pence who thinks that it’s OK his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ: you’re wrong,” she continued. “You think we should not discriminate against Christianity? You’re the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian.”

She added: “I am a Christian woman and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there.”

Taking to Twitter, Gaga’s fans sent their love and support of her political comments:
