See Lady Gaga’s Anti-Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Plea (VIDEO)
Lady Gaga for President? Putting her VMA domination behind her, Mother Monster is focusing her energy on her political pursuits. In a new video posted to her Twitter on Friday, Gaga asks her 6 million followers to urge the U.S. Senate to overturn Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the 1993 legislation prohibiting openly gay men and women from serving in the military.
After tweeting her love and support for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, (who responded by inviting her to Vegas) a suit-wearing Gaga addresses Senate leaders and her “fellow Americans,” asking them to contact their legislators and ask them to vote to repeal DADT next week.
“I am here to be a voice for my generation,” Gaga says, asserting her opinion that DADT is “serious prejudice.”
Gaga singled out Republican Senator John McCain via Twitter, saying he plans to “hijack” the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell vote with a filibuster, (a way of delaying the lawmakers’ debate.) She proved just how strongly she feels about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell when she walked the VMA white carpet with servicemembers affected by the legislation.
