LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) Lady Gaga stopped a performance of “Enigma” in Las Vegas Jan. 19 to blame President Donald Trump for the government shutdown and for the wife of Vice President Mike Pence’s work at a Christian school.
“And that the f—ing president of the United States could please put our government back in business,” Lady Gaga says. “There are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money.”
“And to Mike Pence, who thinks it’s acceptable that his wife work at a school that bans LGBTQ, you are wrong,” she continued. “You say we should not discriminate against Christianity; you are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian. I am a Christian woman and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace Mr. Pence and you can look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there.”
“Okay, I’m sorry, I got upset for a second there,” she said, and continued with the song.
Capitol Hill has shuttered the government, and government workers, with guaranteed back pay, are waiting their next paycheck. Meanwhile, Second Lady Karen Sue Pence has been teaching art at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Va., which requires would-be employees to affirm in writing that they will not engage in homosexual acts (but does not explicitly ban LGBTQ teachers).
