Here's Why Madonna Was Mentioned During Trump Impeachment Hearings

Republican Colorado congressman Ken Buck took shots at Madonna and other Hollywood stars Wednesday (Jan. 13) during a debate about impeaching President Trump.

In 2017, the Queen of Pop took the stage at the Women's March on Washington, the day after Trump was inaugurated as president, and made some provocative comments to the crowd, though she finished with a message of love. "Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair," the "Material Girl" singer said during the March. "As the poet W. H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War II, we must love one another or die. I choose love. Are you with me? Say this with me: We. Choose. Love."

Madonna took to Instagram a day after her speech and clarified that she didn't mean to promote violence with her comment and that acting out of the anger she felt "doesn't solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love."

Griffin noted her only takeaway from Buck's speech was that she and Madonna were being name-dropped, according to her Twitter.

Watch Buck's statement below.
