Former President Donald Trump wrote a scathing review of Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime show on Truth Social.
“EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history — This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language. Also, so much for her ‘Stylist!'” Trump posted following her performance.
Throughout Trump’s time in the White House, Rihanna fiercely condemned and scoffed at the administration. Notably, while visiting Cadillac Ranch in 2020, the famous singer graffitied “F— TRUMP” on one of the old cars. She then posted her work on social media and captioned it “art.”
Additionally, Rihanna’s performing rights company forced the former president to stop playing her music at his rallies, per a report from The Hill.
Trump’s criticism of the pop star began days before the event. In a Truth Social post on Thursday, Ronny Jackson, the former White House Doctor, questioned why the NFL would want to showcase Rihanna after her political stunts. Trump replied to the post, saying Rihanna has “NO TALENT!”
Other conservatives seemed to think Rihanna’s performance was sub-par as well. Famous conservative podcaster Ben Shapiro said it is “nice” that Rihanna is pregnant but called the performance “bad” in a Twitter post.
