On January 21, Madonna joined millions of protesters during the Women's March (opens in new tab), where she gave a pretty rousing (and expletive-heavy) speech (opens in new tab) about Donald Trump. And yes, he watched it. And no, he was not thrilled.

The president, who has a history of defensiveness, reacted strongly (read: inappropriately) to Madonna's comments during an interview with Sean Hannity, saying (opens in new tab), "Honestly, she's disgusting. I think she hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt that whole cause...I thought what she said was disgraceful to our country."

Trump is referring to Madonna's comment that she had considered "blowing up the White House." She since clarified on Instagram (saying she doesn't promote violence), and then made her account private (opens in new tab).

Other celebrities have also criticized Madonna (including Cyndi Lauper who said (opens in new tab) "I don't think it served our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity"), but only President Donald Trump has called her "disgusting."

He also criticized SNL writer Katy Rich's controversial tweet about his son, saying "For them to attack, for NBC to attack my 10-year-old son, it's a disgrace. He's a great boy and it's not an easy thing for him. Believe me."

Valid point re: Barron, but it's disheartening that Trump would spend an interview airing his personal grievances instead of talking exclusively about his plans for our country.
