Her comment about “blowing up the White House” has caught the attention of Secret Service officials. And they plan to investigate the pop singer.
During her vulgar speech, she said she was “angry” about President Trump’s victory. She followed that up with:
“Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,”
According to Gateway Pundit a spokesperson for the Secret Service said they are going to investigate her threat. However, any decision to prosecute Madonna would be up to the U.S. Attorney.
It is the policy of the Secret Service to investigate any credible threat against the President-or any protectee. In fact, they encourage the reporting of any credible threat. They are also careful not to encourage reporting of those who are peacefully protesting. But…
Madonna Went Too Far

Her comments went farther than smashing windows or burning trash cans.. Hundreds of people work at the White House. There are children there too. And they certainly don’t mesh with her shouting “We choose love! We choose love! We choose love!”
These groups, and Madonna, are not choosing love. They are choosing violence.
But it may take a while before we know whether or not she will face charges.
The U.S Attorney currently has their hands full with the 230 rioters arrested on inauguration day. Reports indicate that those individuals will be charged with felony rioting. A crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Madonna could face similar penalties if charged and found guilty.
According to U.S. Code Title 18, Section 871, threatening the President is a class E felony.
Let’s hope the Secret Service sends Madonna and others like her a clear message “Your 15 minutes of fame are up.”
