Madonna fans joke she should be ‘impeached’ after Donald Trump’s lawyers use video of her in trial

Donald Trump’s lawyers have been mocked for using videos of Johnny Depp and Madonna at his impeachment trial

The former president is currently on trial for inciting a riot among protesters in Washington DC, who stormed the US Capitol on January 6. If he’s convicted, he could by voted by the Senate to be ineligible to run for office again in future.

During the trial, Trump’s lawyer Michael Van der Veen showed videos of the actor and musician, aiming to prove that Democrats have used the same kind of provocative language that the former president used ahead of the January 6 attack, according to Deadline.

The first clip was of Madonna, when she was at a Women’s March in 2017. She said: ‘Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.’ Meanwhile, a video of Depp was also shown, from an appearance at Glastonbury.

Van der Veen said afterwards: ‘I did not show you their robust speech to excuse or balance out the speech of my client, for I need not. ‘I showed you the video because in this political forum, all robust speech should be protected and it should be protected evenly.’

However, not everyone is convinced by the use of the videos in the trial, pointing out that Madonna and Depp were never elected. ‘Ok, they’ve finally convinced me. Johnny Depp and Madonna should be removed from office,’ one Twitter user joked. Another said: ‘IMPEACH MADONNA!’ while one more added: ‘Just spitballing here… maybe the President of the United States’ words should be held to a higher standard than Madonna?’
