With some on Twitter raising the suggestion that Lady Gaga is the real president or should succeed the POTUS, Donald Trump just can’t get a break.
Gaga, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, appeared at “One America Appeal,” the Hurricane Relief concert held over the weekend in College Station, Texas to support victims of the recent storms that ravished four U.S. states and territories. The “Poker Face” singer had a million reasons to lend her voice to a benevolent cause.
Lady Gaga joined all five living former presidents: George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton. She serenaded the crowd with some of her popular tunes. Other entertainers like Lyle Lovett, Yolanda Adams, the band Alabama, and others joined in on the celebration of hope.
Through their efforts, Lady Gaga and other celebrities raised over $30 million in relief aid. Reportedly, Gaga pledged $1 million of her own money.
On a lighter note — harsher, to some Trump supporters — Twitter users pivoted to the possibility of Lady Gaga serving as commander-in-chief. It was an apparent swipe at Donald Trump, who has been under fire from the start of the presidency over his controversial behavior. Some have even suggested that he be impeached and removed from office before the expiration of his first term.
Trump took heat for not being present with his predecessors at the College Station event, according to toofab. Sources said he chose to play golf instead as part of a working-break. However, the president prepared a pre-recorded message to highlight the generous work the past presidents put forth in support of the rebuilding process for hurricane victims.
Still, critics on Twitter compared Donald Trump negatively to his predecessors. Some tweets were also aimed at wishing Lady Gaga was the leader of the free world.
One user boldly invoked an article of the United States Constitution that, according to the Legal Information Institute, doesn’t exist. The site maintains that the Constitution is composed of seven articles and 27 amendments. Apparently, the reference to Lady Gaga being the de facto president — in place of the current leadership under Donald Trump — was an attempt at humor.
“Per the Article VIII of the US Constitution, Lady Gaga is President now,” quipped the Gaga fan.
Still, that didn’t stop others from putting forth reasons why Lady Gaga should replace Donald Trump as POTUS. Here are some of the tweets that ripped the embattled president.
Obviously, there is no provision in the United States Constitution that allows Lady Gaga to replace Donald Trump in the Oval Office by a decree from the electorate. However, should Gaga step into the political fray after Trump’s first term, what do you give her chances?
