Singer Bans American Flag From Concerts Because It Reminds Her of Trump

Earlier this week, Lana Del Rey caused some eye rolls when admitted to trying to hex President Trump.

She said, "“Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of s--t."

The 32-year-old singer added, “I’m in line with Yoko [Ono] and John [Lennon] and the belief that there’s a power to the vibration of a thought... Your thoughts are very powerful things and they become words, and words become actions, and actions lead to physical changes.

In February, she had posted the dates for the waning crescent moon and invited her fans to join her—presumably in hexing the president. It's silly and destructive of her to even suggest it. 

Now Del Rey is causing some more uproar. In an interview with Pitchfork, she's saying she won't be using the American Flag—which she used heavily in past albums—in her shows anymore. Why? Because she thinks of Trump when she looks at it. 

"It’s certainly uncomfortable. I definitely changed my visuals on my tour videos," she said. "I’m not going to have the American flag waving while I’m singing “Born to Die.” It’s not going to happen. I’d rather have static." 

She also said she feels less safe now that Trump is president. She continued to criticize Trump's personality, saying his defects have caused other people to act worse. 

"When you have a leader at the top of the pyramid who is casually being loud and funny about things like that, it’s brought up character defects in people who already have the propensity to be violent towards women." 

However, she qualified why she feels unsafe. It's not because she is afraid of bodily harm. Rather, she's spouting the usual liberal rhetoric about losing birth control. 

"Women started to feel less safe under this administration instantly. What if they take away Planned Parenthood? What if we can’t get birth control?" 

Why can't liberals separate their patriotism from their dislike of the current administration? It's not as if conservatives boycotted the American flag when Obama was in the White House. If you'd like to read more about crazy liberal celebrities, click here
