Lady Gaga could give you a million reasons why Donald Trump is unfit to become the president of the United States, but when reporter Charlie Stayt presented this terrifying prospect to the singer on BBC Breakfast on Friday, she had just one thing to say.
“I have nothing to say of him,” Gaga, who has pledged her support to Hillary Clinton in the past, cooly responded, wearing John Lennon-esque shades for the indoor interview.
When pressed about why Trump’s rhetoric resonates with so many Americans across the country, Gaga broke down how the Republican nominee’s campaign is fueled by empty promises and fearmongering without once mentioning his name.
“I think what is most important is for us to try to decipher now what is real and what is not. And what is honest and what is dishonest and be accepting of those things and not operating from fear.”
Things took an awkward turn, however, as the interviewer continued with this line of questioning. When asked why Clinton would do a better job than Trump ― how long do you have, BBC?! ― an increasingly bored-looking Gaga responded, after a long silence:
“I think she will do a good job. Some people want to win races. Other people want to be president of the United States and change people’s lives. It’s about the intention.”

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
