‘Dear Mr. President’ performer P!nk borrowed elements from her 2006 tune to address Donald Trump‘s response (or lack thereof) to the unrest across the nation amid rising deaths from coronavirus and racial injustice related to police brutality.
Taking to social media Wednesday afternoon (June 3), the GRAMMY winner slammed the U.S. president for his pseudo-patriotism:
“How can anyone call themself a patriot or an American if you re-elect a president that doesn’t govern, respect or represent half of our country?” she asked.
Later in the 30-second rant, she declared:
“That’s not America. That’s your America,” P!nk added. “That’s not America. So you either worship the Confederate flag, which is not our flag and it never will be, or you’re a hypocrite that doesn’t actually understand the meaning of patriotism or what it means to be an American.”
Needless to say, his staunchest supporters got wind of her commentary and started an all-out Twitter as a result. See the exchanges inside:
