President Donald Trump took some time during his rally in Avoca, Pennsylvania to criticize a number of A-list stars who have voiced their support for Joe Biden, and those who previously advocated for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election cycle.
“Now he’s got Lady Gaga,” Trump said in the days leading up to the Nov. 3 election. “I could tell you plenty of stories – I could tell you stories about Lady Gaga, I know a lot of stories. Lady Gaga.”
Then, he moved on to Jon Bon Jovi. “Every time he sees me, he kisses my a–. ‘Oh, Mr. President’. He’ll get something out of it just like everyone is,” he said, before boasting “bigger crowds” at his packed rally as the coronavirus continues to spread. “He’ll sing a song or two and then he’ll leave and the crowd will leave, and Sleepy Joe’s up there talking.”
He concluded by comparing the situation to 2016, when Beyoncé and Jay-Z performed at one of Clinton’s rallies. “That happened to Hillary too, right? They got Beyoncé and they got Jay-Z, right? He started using the f-word in front of the crowd and it was unbelievable. He was using the f-word, f-word, f-word. Then they left and the crowd left and Hillary was standing on stage with an empty place.”
“I can tell you stories about Lady Gaga. I know a lot of stories, Trump says cryptically, then immediately adds: “Jon Bon Jovi, every time I see him, he kisses my ass.” pic.twitter.com/l37CDoiSZ4

Gaga had no problem clapping back at Trump’s criticism, taking to Twitter on Sunday (Nov. 1) after his campaign sent out a press release slamming her affiliation with Biden.
“HEY TIM HEY @realDonaldTrump SO HAPPY IM GLAD TO BE LIVING RENT FREE in your HEAD. #BidenHarris,” she wrote. See below.
