Secret Service considers action against Madonna for her “blowing up the White House” comment

Madonna has drawn the attention of the Secret Service over the weekend after she publicly threatened to bomb the White House Saturday, Jan. 21 during her speech at the Women’s March protest that took place in Washington, DC.

“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I’m outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said. “But, I know that this won’t change anything.”

Several news stations, such as CNN, MSNBC and ABC News were airing/streaming the speech live but were forced to cut her off due to her excessive use of curse words and offensive language.

According to Heavy.com, the networks had cut away from Madonna’s speech prior to her admitting to the audience that she wanted to bomb Trump’s new home and even apologized to their viewers for her language.

“Okay, we’re going to pull out of that because of the language that was used,” CNN host Brooke Baldwin said. “It’s Madonna…we didn’t know what she was going to say.”

During the speech, Madonna also told “detractors” of the women’s march “f**k you, that President Donald Trump’s win should “wake us the f**k up,” and that their “revolution of love” was not over.

ABC News online stream, Heavy reports, did not drop their coverage of the speech until Madonna used explicit and offensive language directed at Trump during her musical performance.

“F-bomb” became a Twitter trend after her speech, they report, but others on Twitter began to criticize Madonna.

“Publicly threatening to bomb the White House is a serious criminal offence,” Piers Morgan tweeted out almost an hour after Madonna’s public speech. “@Madonna should be arrested.”

“Madonna just said she wants to bomb the White House. Any ordinary person who said that would be arrested, charged & jailed,” Morgan tweeted.

“After her comment about blowing up the White House, she should be in jail, period,” Twitter user @Stevenhirsch99 writes.

A spokesman for the Secret Service told The Gateway Pundit they are opening an investigation into the singer’s comments but that it would be up to the U.S. Attorney’s office to decide if they would prosecute her or not.
