Ivanka Trump was watching the Super Bowl halftime show a little closer than the rest of us for different reason. The performer promised to trash the First Daughter’s father but seemingly decided against it in the eleventh hour, much to every citizens’ surprise on both sides of the aisle. However, there something else the singer did that Ivanka took special notice of and has since pissed the performer off with her priceless response to it.
Lady Gaga began 13-minute highly paid performance with a cover of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Our Land,” which seemed like a sweet ode to this country and nod to a time-honored tune with her rendition of it. While she sang the song well and everyone seemed to appreciate it being free of the political rhetoric she previously promised, the influential First Daughter to her father’s administration saw it for what it really was and have the perfect reply.
The message that Gaga secretly gave in her performance was the choice in the song to begin with, which in this case with “This Land Is Your Land,” is easily interpreted to hit on a hot button issue. Observers saw it as a slam to Trump’s controversial immigration ban, which the Hillary-supporting singer is definitely against. Despite the discredit to our president, his daughter fought hate with love — like liberals claim they do while always proving otherwise.
Always carrying herself with the utmost class, Ivanka used the social media tools at her fingertips to congratulate the performer on a job well done. “Incredible performance by [Lady Gaga],” she wrote, according to Metro.
The simple and sweet sentiment was authentic since she’s not the type to say it if she didn’t mean it — she would have just kept quiet instead. Performers so things for a reaction and getting the opposite of what you expected to receive is a well-played slap in the face to Gaga’s subliminal message she tried to send to the president and our country. Ivanka saw the halftime show for what it was, a well-done performance that could have been made into a huge spectacle, but wasn’t, even if there were some underlying messages left up for interpretation.
