Fiery Madonna: 'Women Betrayed Us' by Voting for Donald Trump
— billboard (@billboard) December 6, 2016
Madonna put forth a simple take on the results of the presidential election:
"We’re f***ed," said the multi-platinum recording artist.
In a wide-ranging interview with Billboard, the outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter, said women who voted for President-elect Donald Trump "betrayed us" and that she has not had a good night's sleep since the election.
"It felt like someone died. It felt like a combination of the heartbreak and betrayal you feel when someone you love more than anything leaves you, and also a death. I feel that way every morning; I wake up and say, 'Oh, wait, Donald Trump is still the president,' and it wasn’t a bad dream that I had. It feels like women betrayed us. The percentage of women who voted for Trump was insanely high."
Madonna, who was named Billboard's 2016 Woman of the Year, continued that she thinks "women hate women," thus contributing to the election results.
"Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external. A lot of it has do with jealousy and some sort of tribal inability to accept that one of their kind could lead a nation. Other people just didn’t bother to vote because they didn’t like either candidate, or they didn’t think Trump had a chance in the world. They took their hands off the wheel and then the car crashed."
