Right On Cue: Lady Gaga Blames Trump And Paul Ryan For American Tragedy In Sin City
Need Another Reminder That Celebrities Look Down On Americans And The People We Elected?
It didn’t take very long for Hollywood actors and rock stars to begin casting blame for Las Vegas on President Trump. Lady Gaga joined the fray soon after the tragic shooting, and caught Paul Ryan with some of her vapid shrapnel in addition to the POTUS.
Hilariously, actress Julianne Moore supported Gagaloo with anti-gun tweets of her own – and Moore has played gun-toting characters in several movies!

Lady Gaga tweeted strong words directed at President Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Monday in the wake of Sunday’s shooting in Las Vegas.
At least 58 have died and an additional 515 were injured at the Route 91 Harvest festival in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
Reeling from the news, Lady Gaga shared a series of tweets calling the action “terrorism plain and simple,” and asking Democrats and Republicans alike to “unite now” for gun control.
Replying to Speaker Ryan’s statement on the events, in which he said, “We stand united in our shock, our condolences, & our prayers,” the Million Reasons singer acknowledged that “Prayers are important…” But continued, mentioning Speaker Ryan and President Trump by name, saying “… blood is on the hands of those who have power to legislate. #GunControl act quickly.”
Addressing the shooting Monday from the White House, Trump called it “an act of pure evil.”
“Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the sudden loss” of a parent, child, friend or other family member,” the commander-in-chief said. “We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss.”
Trump announced that he would visit Las Vegas on Wednesday, and he said the FBI and Department of Homeland Security are working closely with local authorities.
Trump is still scheduled to travel Tuesday to Puerto Rico to review hurricane recovery efforts.
Gaga has been joined by fellow musicians and celebrities calling for a review of gun control legislation following the violence.
“Mass shootings cause gun stocks to rise. They’re making money off tragedy. Are you ok with your reps being bought with that money? Shameful,” Jessica Chastain tweeted, telling followers to vote representatives who legislate against limits on assault weapons out of office.
