The NRA is hoping Lady Gaga will refrain from addressing politics during her Super Bowl halftime performance on Sunday. 

Conservative political commentator Bill Whittle joined NRATV's Stinchfield to address the possibility, calling Gaga a "gigantic progressive mouthpiece" and trashing Beyonce's performance last year for her Black Panther-inspired costumes.  

"I can remember the days when Michael Jackson or somebody would do the Super Bowl and politics didn't enter into it because they understood that they're performing for the entire nation and not for the staff at MSNBC," he said. 

Gaga was an adamant supporter of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election and protested outside Trump Tower in New York City when Donald Trump won the electoral college vote in November. 

"I think if Lady Gaga comes out there and makes this an anti-Trump tirade, I think that's really the final step of the declaration of war between our pop culture people and the actual citizens," Whittle continued. "This is not the Kennedy Awards, this isn't the Oscars, this is the Super Bowl where real Americans get together and have a real fun day and the last thing they want to hear is how stupid and racist they are."

Whittle also solely blamed San Francsico 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his actions of activism and protest during the season for the NFL's decline in viewership.
