Joy Villa, recording artist, is most well-known for her jaw-dropping appearance at the 2017 Grammy Awards. At the awards, she wore a ‘Make America Great Again’ dress that also had ‘Trump’ written on the back, to publicly express her support for our president. Recently, she also released a ‘Make America Great Again’ song.
In July of 2017, she appeared in an exclusive interview with Bold TV to talk about her new song. She stated the goal of her song is to encourage unity and togetherness, despite the fact that the title of the song resembles Trump’s campaign slogan. Her desire is to put an end to the bullying and hatred regardless of political differences.
During the interview, she also discussed some of her views on President Trump, including his tweeting. Villa was interviewed by Carrie Sheffield and Adrienne Elrod, who appear to be liberals based on their commentary throughout their discussion.
Elrod mentioned that she previously worked on Hillary Clinton’s campaign by coordinating with celebrities who supported the liberal candidate in the 2016 presidential election. Later in the interview, Elrod asked Villa to respond to a few comments asked by the viewers,. One said, “Our president’s tweeting sets a horrible example, not an encouragement to come together at all." Another viewer commented that his tweets 'promote violence'.
When asked if she agreed, Villa responded with a very powerful statement, clarifying she ‘understands it could be offensive to some people, but it doesn’t offend her.’ She said, “I don’t agree with that; I don’t think it sets a horrible example. I think that he sets a radical example for sure."
"His tweets are very bold...He’s a New Yorker...He’s always said what he thinks...I want my president to be himself.” She also brings up the fact that many liberals have promoted violence with threatening the president's assassination and conducting inappropriate photo stunts.
She continues by saying she wouldn’t necessarily do those things herself, but he has the right to. She states, “For me, it’s not offensive...for someone to offend me, it would have to be a targeted evil approach, it would have to be an actual death threat...not something that could be interpreted as a joke or could be interpreted as a little bit rough.”
