Former pop star Madonna Ciccone threatened to blow up the Trump White house while speaking to a crowd at the Women’s March on Washington Saturday afternoon.
In an expletive laced speech on live TV the singer stated “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she said. “But I know this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”
Suggesting that Hillary Clinton is “good” and President Trump is “evil,” and not mentioning any of Hillary’s transgressions Madonna said “Good did not win this election, but Good will win in the end.”
CNN, which broadcast her remarks live, were not able to censor her fowl remarks on live television according to reports.

She then went on to perform an altered rendition of “Express Yourself”, changing the lyrics to say “Donald Trump suck a d–k, I’m not your b—h”
