Lady Gaga Protests in New York City


Lady Gaga doth protest.

Donald Trump’s unprecedented Presidential win drove the singer out of the trenches. After leaving Hillary Clinton’s election night headquarters,  the singer headed uptown to protest the election results in front of Trump Tower, the President-Elect’s namesake tower early Wednesday morning.

Wielding a “Love Trumps Hate” sign, and brandishing a solemn glare, the singer – a known proponent for LGBTQ rights – stood atop a heavy-load sanitation truck parked outside the Fifth Avenue building. She wore a funereal black jumpsuit.

On Tuesday evening, the singer – born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – tweeted “In a room full of hope, we will be heard. Stand up for kindness, equality, and love. Nothing will stop us.”

Early Wednesday, she dispatched a photo of her protest, proclaiming: “I want to live in a #CountryOfKindness where #LoveTrumpsHate.”

Throughout the election, the singer had heavily campaigned for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. On the eve of Election Day, she performed at a rally with Jon Bon Jovi.

“If we are true, true Americans, we must go from viewing his followers as our adversaries to viewing them as our allies. What does she say? What do we say? We are stronger together. And what I see in this remarkable woman is that she is ready to restore peace in this country. America is not America without its people,” she said at the rally.

Speaking of her preferred candidate, Gaga added: “Hillary Clinton is made of steel. Hillary Clinton is unstoppable.”
