Singer Lady Gaga, a self-proclaimed Christian, is publicly slamming Vice President Mike Pence as “the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian.”
The pop star launched into both Pence and President Trump Saturday night during a concert in Las Vegas.
She paused during her performance of “Million Reasons” to initially hit Trump with an F-bomb regarding his handling of the government shutdown over border security.
“If the f***ing president of the United States could please put our government back … there are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money.”
Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, then took aim at Pence, whose wife Karen has been under fire since last week for teaching art at a school that upholds biblical teaching about sexuality.
“And to Mike Pence, who thinks it’s acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ: you’re wrong,” she said.
“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.”

A few moments later, the singer tipped her political hand, saying, “So I’ll just pray for Michelle [Obama] or Joe Biden.”

The Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, asks all potential employees to affirm that marriage is “the uniting of one man and one woman” and that they’ll “maintain a lifestyle based on biblical standards of moral conduct” which precludes “homosexual or lesbian sexual activity” as well as “transgender identity.”
A spokeswoman for Pence called the controversy over his wife’s teaching at the school ridiculous.
“It’s absurd that her decision to teach art to children at a Christian school, and the school’s religious beliefs, are under attack,” Kara Brooks told People magazine.
The vice president himself defended his wife, telling Catholic news network EWTN on Thursday: “To see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive to us.”
Pence defended his wife’s decision on the Catholic news network EWTN in an interview that aired Thursday, saying “to see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive to us.”
