Just one week after picking up $4 million worth of campaign contributions at a Jay-Z-and-Beyonce-hosted fundraiser, President Obama received a ringing endorsement from Madonna during her concert in Washington, D.C.
"Y'all better vote for fucking Obama, OK?" Madge told the audience. "For better or for worse, alright, we have a Black Muslim in the White House. Now that is some shit. That is some amazing shit."
To be clear, POTUS was not at the show.

But President Obama wasn't the only Commander in Chief heralded by Madonna last night. The singer also made sure to acknowledge Abraham Lincoln, who she called a "prophet."
"In 1864 -- if I have my numbers correct, I'm a little dizzy -- Abraham Lincoln was President of the United States, right?" she said. "And what was he fighting for? To abolish slavery, right? And they killed him, as they do all the prophets."

Strange as it was, last night's impromptu civics lesson wasn't the first on Madonna's MDNA Tour. The singer made headlines earlier this year when she slapped a swastika on an image of French National Front leader Marine Le Pen and included it in the "Nobody Knows Me" portion of her show.
Can't wait to see what crazy shit she'll say in November.
