Barack Obama “Black Muslim” Remark Was Meant to Be “Ironic”

Occasionally when Madonna expresses herself, not everyone gets the joke.
And that’s apparently what happened during a concert Monday in Washington, D.C., when the Queen of Pop endorsed President Barack Obama’s reelection bid by referring to him as a “black Muslim.”
“Now it’s so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House…for better or worse we have a black Muslim in the White House…it means there is hope in this country and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man,” said Madonna in a YouTube clip posted by fans shortly after the show at the Verizon Center.
Obama is a Christian but the Muslim rumor has persisted as the result of online gossip ginned up by many in the Birther movement, hard-core conservatives challenging his legitimacy to be commander in chief.
But in case anyone misconstrued her statement about the president’s beliefs, the 54-year-old hitmaker let it be known in a statement released by her rep that she was being tongue in cheek—and for a reason.
“I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim—though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were?” Madonna asked. “The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is—nor should anyone else in America.”
Sounds clear enough.
The “Girl Gone Wild” singer’s North American trek in support of her latest album, MDNA, continues on Saturday with a stop in Vancouver.

    She actually said, if you are a good person, whatever your religion, whether its Muslim, Christian, Catholic, whoever you pray to, your goodness shines and Obama is a great man…. So, get your facts right

    Thank you Madonna for a brilliant MDNA Performance on Monday Night-by Satellite-as the late INXS frontman/writer Michael Hutchence quoted. I will vote for Obama in November because he’s doing the best job he can under difficult circumstances. And so do you Maddy even though Universal did you no favors at all concerning MDNA’s cool reception by an uncaring industry/Radio/public. I love you Madge because you keep fighting the good fight as it were and will always be! Keep Rocking Bunny Ciccone!

    I may disagree with some of The US/ Obama administration policies, but in
    fact I like America and president Obama for exactly the same reasons that
    Madonna does. In America if you work hard and play your cards well you can
    achieve many if not all of your dreams. President Obama represents that in many
    ways. Madonna defiantly does.

    I like Obama and Love
    Madonna.

    One should be judged
    by who he or she is, and not by his or her label. “Sing your love, wear your
    love, share your love”
