A celebrity-packed award show in the US wouldn’t be complete these days without some reference to Donald Trump. Katy Perry, a longtime Hillary Clinton supporter, was one of the many anti-Trump celebrities who performed on Sunday night at the Grammy Awards.
This performance by Katy Perry included many subtle references and indirect insults in relation to Trump and his policy’s. Katy Perry appeared on stage with an armband that said “PERSIST”.
This was symbolic to the left as it seemed to be an apparent reference to the “Nevertheless, she persisted” warning that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave Senator Elizabeth Warren on the senate floor last week.
The anti-Trump extravaganza continued when a fence was brought onto the stage and positioned next to Katy Perry. This fence was seen as a reference to Mr. Trump’s support for a border wall. She then ended her song by shouting “No hate!” with a projection of the U.S. Constitution behind her. This was a Clear reference to the fact that trump’s travel ban policy was stopped due to a “So Called Judge” calling it “Unconstitutional”.
Perry was a vocal advocate of Hillary Clinton, a candidate who actively took money from countries that view women as inferior and herself laughed about her husband Bill’s sexual assault accusers. This is apparently a champion of women’s rights.
Katy Perry was not the only person who decided to engage in a bit of Trump bashing. With Jennifer Lopez kicking off the show by saying: “At this particular time in history, our voices are needed more than ever.”
It wasn’t all about immigration either, with Paris Jackson giving a shout-out to the Dakota Access pipeline protesters.She then followed this up by saying “We can really use this kind of excitement at a pipeline protest, guys, #NoDAPL!”.
However, there were some pro-Trump celebrities in attendance.
With Singer and songwriter Joy Villa attending the award show in a Make America Great Again dress. Of course her choice of outfit did lead to some serious and hate from the liberal left, with one Twitter user saying:
However these liberal award shows will never change,as at the end of the day we are currently living in a McCarthyism-like time where conservatives are looked down and demeaned on by celebrities and liberal Hollywood.
