Madonna clarifies Obama remark

WENN

Madonna has clarified comments she made about President Barack Obama after branding the American leader a "black Muslim" during a recent concert.

The singer gave her backing to President Obama as he fights for a second term in the White House during her show in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

After comparing him to Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr. in a video montage, the singer -- who had 'Obama' written on her back -- told the audience, "Y'all better vote for f---ing Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. That's some amazing s--t. It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamn it."

However, following a backlash over her remarks, Madonna insists she was merely mocking some right-wing factions who believe the politician is a follower of Islam.

A statement from the star reads, "I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim -- though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is -- nor should anyone else in America."

I still say this is the most twisted woman on the circuit. Reflect on what this woman says. Obama is for Gay rights, therefore we need to re-elect him? Amazing to say the least.

Who cares what she thinks she lives in England, she don't even care what goes on in this country. I haven't heard any news of her working at helping poor people, just like most of the liberal actors who stand around and use the same tax write-offs as Romney. None of them are going around and giving away their money. Some of them avoid paying their taxes at all. Until I hear of Rob Reiner or Ron Howard going around the poor areas of L.A. and giving away their money they should just shut up.

You think Madonna would choose her words more wisely. After all she been in the media since Ronald Reagan was president. Think before you talk so you dont have to apologize.

Obama is a Master Manipulator - hoping to change us into a socialist broke weak society.  Then we would all be equally miserable!
