Pop superstar Katy Perry just made a huge political statement at the Grammys. Wearing a white suit that would bring a smile to Hillary Clinton’s face, an armband that read “RESIST,” and a Planned Parenthood pin, Perry brought down the house with her rendition of her new single, “Chained to the Rhythm.”
As she closed out her song, she yelled “NO HATE!” as the words of the Constitution were projected on the wall behind her.

All the symbols of resistance were obviously aimed at President Donald Trump, who has shown his utter disdain for the Constitution by violating the emoluments clause since the moment he was sworn in, issuing a number of unconstitutional and obviously xenophobic anti-immigration executive orders, and cutting funding to reproductive health clinics across the world.
We applaud Katy for using the limelight to make a subtle political statement and for reminding Trump to do his duty and protect the Constitution that he swore to uphold.
