Somewhere out there Billy Ray Cyrus is hanging his head in shame at the comments his daughter Miley just made about President Trump.
Miley Cyrus just gave a disgraceful interview with Vanity Fair magazine and she should be ashamed of herself.
From The Hill: Singer Miley Cyrus blasted President Trump as a “completely racist, sexist, hateful asshole” in a recent cover story interview with Vanity Fair.
“You know, I said I would move away if he became president. We all said a bunch of shit we didn’t mean,” Cyrus said in reference to Trump in the interview released on Thursday.
“Because we really thought: Maybe people will listen,” she continued. “Maybe people actually realize how detrimental this will be to our f–king country if this happens. Obviously they didn’t.”
“But for me to move away—what the f— is that going to change?” Cyrus went on to say in the interview. “As someone who is so proud of being an activist, am I going to feel proud of myself just running away from, and leaving everyone else here to live under, a completely racist, sexist, hateful asshole? You can’t leave everyone else to fend for themselves.”
She added later in the interview that “in this time, pop culture and politics are the same f—ing thing.”
“Especially with the president that we have right now,” she said. “We’ve made a celebrity our f—ing president. People listen to what celebrities have to say more than activists half the time. So, by having that platform, what the f— are you going to say?”
She also recounted a much better encounter with President Trump – when she was roundly booed for her scandalous MTV performance, Trump called to wish her well.
From Vanity Fair:
Her 2013 MTV VMA performance is now the stuff of pop-cultural—even presidential—lore. The day after, while Cyrus was staying at Trump Tower in New York, Cyrus woke up to a call from Donald himself, who wanted to congratulate her on her extremely twerk-heavy performance. “I loved it,” he said.
