Sounds to me like Pink was trying to start a controversy in the name of ending on. What a putz.
Why do Hollywood types believe we give a damn about what they think politically?
Personally, I’m wondering if bashing Trump has become a new cottage industry for furthering your Hollywood career.

Pink attacked President Donald Trump for “stripping our humanity away” while she praised Lady Gaga’s halftime performance at Super Bowl LI Monday.
The 37-year-old singer told her 1.5 million followers on Instagram that she thought Lady Gaga “killed it” during her performance on Sunday and said it was time to get back to the “real controversy” of dealing with “our so-called leader,” without using his name.
“For the record: Let’s squash this before it even has a chance to be a thing…,” Pink wrote on Instagram. “Lady Gaga killed it yesterday. Her voice was powerful and beautiful, her outfits were on point, choreography stellar, her heart was in it and she sang about love and inclusiveness, all in front of millions and millions of people.”
“Let’s celebrate a woman who has the guts to jump off a roof and stand up there in the first place,” she added. “Who cares if I flew first? Cause I didn’t! Cirque and Peter Pan been in the air for years.”
“Now can we get back to the real controversy,” she continued. “The one where our so-called leader is stripping our humanity away minute by minute….”
This is not the first time the singer has been outspoken against the president. The day after the inauguration the she participated in an anti-Trump march. She shared a photo from the day on social media. The caption next to the post read, “We march together.”
