Irony FAIL: White House Teams with Mama Gaga for Anti-Bullying Campaign
Singer Lady Gaga and her mum may be very serious about ending bullying as we know it.
Too bad the singer's ma is choosing to team up with a White House, known for bullying those who don't ride the Hope and Change express.
Just consider the White House's bullying tactics against private citizens who dare to give money to the Romney campaign. And who can forget the White House's embrace of bully Dan Savage?
Mama Gaga looked past those ugly realities, apparently, in the hopes of swaying some hearts and minds all the same:
Lady Gaga’s mother Cynthia Germanotta addressed the issue of bullying in public schools with President Barack Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and announced that Gaga’s upcoming bus tour is an opportunity for her Born This Way Foundation and the Obama administration to partner with communities around the nation.
“We will be launching a ‘Born Brave’ bus tour early next year that will actually travel with my daughter around the country to 30 cities and I think this is a place where we, Born This Way, the administration, can partner — we can partner with you in the audience in those communities because the whole purpose of that tour will be to connect the youth,” said Germanotta at the U.S. Education Department’s Bullying Prevention Conference in Washington on Tuesday.
