Madonna delivered the controversial speech at last weekend’s Women’s March on Washington DC. Addressing the crowd on Saturday (January 21), Madonna shared her dismay at seeing Donald Trump become President, saying: “I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won’t change anything.”
Responding to Madonna’s comments on US TV’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Lauper argued: “I don’t think that it served our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity, that is what opens people’s minds”. Watch in the clip below.
Lauper has previously expressed her disdain for Donald Trump by likening his “inflammatory” comments to those made by Adolf Hitler. Lauper appeared alongside Trump on the US version of The Apprentice back in 2010.
