Trump blasts Rihanna for worst halftime show in Super Bowl history


Trump blasts Rihanna for worst halftime show in Super Bowl history

By Jennifer S Kuwanta

Former US President, Donald Trump has blasted singer and songwriter Rihanna for the ‘worst halftime show in Super Bowl history’.

The singer, with her baby bump beaming out of her red ensemble, stormed the stage in Arizona before the Chiefs became Super Bowl champions on Sunday night.

Shortly after the Halftime show wrapped up she confirmed that she was expecting her second child.

Trump said, she insulted “far more than half our nation” by previously spray painting ‘f*** Donald Trump’ on a car.

She gave the millions of viewers a sultry performance – however her racy dancing and risqué lyrics were perhaps too much for some.

Trump – who has butted heads with the Barbadian singer multiple times – was not impressed by her Super Bowl show and return to the big stage.

Taking to Truth Social, he wrote: “EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history — this after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language. Also, so much for her ‘Stylist!”

Trump’s sour take is perhaps unsurprising as he had already berated the pop star before she took to the stage. Days ago, he blasted her for having ‘no talent.’

The ex-president’s ire was raised after Texas Republican congressman Ronny Jackson urged the NFL to pull Rihanna from the Sunday’s show after the Barbadian singer spray painted ‘F**k Donald Trump’ at the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas.

Jackson, the Trump’s White House doctor, said in a social media post, ‘She’s made a career of spewing degenerate filth while badmouthing America every chance she gets. Why is the NFL showcasing this crap? Rihanna SHOULD NOT be the halftime performer!!’

In 2019, Rihanna took aim at Trump during his presidency, calling him ‘the most mentally ill man in America’ in an interview with Vogue.

She is clearly no fan of the ex-president, whom she asked to stop using her music.

When the subject of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton come up, Rihanna talks Trump because he said the shooting happened due to mental illness while not discussing gun control.

‘It is devastating,’ she said. ‘People are being murdered by war weapons that they legally purchase. This is just not normal. That should never, ever be normal.

‘And the fact that it’s classified as something different because of the color of their skin? It’s a slap in the face. It’s completely racist.’

She goes on: ‘Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem.

‘The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president.’

In 2020, Rihanna went to the famed Cadillac Ranch in Texas to commit her act of political protest. The singer posted a photo of her graffiti on Instagram and captioned it, ‘Art.’

The message was later covered up with black paint by Trump supporters.

That wasn’t the first time that RiRi tackled Trump. In 2018, when she learned that her music was played at a MAGA rally, she tweeted: ‘Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies.’
