Pink on Trump: ‘I feel like we are all in this permanent state of f- it’

I don’t know about you but I am loving Pink’s Beautiful Trauma album. What About Us is so far my favorite but the titular song is making a strong run for #1 with me. Pink is out and about promoting the album. She recently spoke about how she and husband Carey Hart were trying to avoid the traditional gender roles for their two kids, calling their household “label-free.” She also discussed her daughter Willow’s nickname for our current president and how, like many of us, she cannot believe we are forced to live in Trump’s America.

Little Willow has even come up with a nickname for the US President – who she calls Donald Duck Trumpet.

Pink said: “I don’t correct her. And I should, because it’s disrespectful, but it’s like – ‘f*** it’. I feel like we are all in this ¬permanent state of f*** it. I can’t imagine being a third-grader and this being the first example of what it means to be President.

“I throw my hands up in the air every day. It’s unbelievable. It’s not funny at all. It’s un-f***ing-believable. I want to skip ahead to the part that it’s over and we start the clean-up process.”

[From The Mirror]

I completely understand where Pink is coming from. My husband and I, who were both raised by military officers, were always taught to respect the office if not the person who holds it. But we no longer stop our children from mocking #45, no matter how bitter they get. And yes! I just want to fast forward to the point when we are picking up the pieces from this administration *crosses fingers* please, please let there be enough left to put back together. It is such a challenge to coach your kids on how to behave when no one is holding the highest seat in the nation accountable for his behavior.

A few miscellaneous Pink tidbits: as Corey wrote about after the AMAs, Pink is over people trying to stoke a feud between her and Christina Aguilera. Apparently, they moved so far past their former feud that two years ago, they recorded a duet together for Christina’s long-awaited album – oh! I can’t wait. Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, Pink loaned What About Us to Unicef for World Children’s Day a few weeks back. Kids from across the world performed it in the video that ends with a group of them dancing in the UN. Lastly, Pink performed on Graham Norton on Friday. Also on the couch was fellow singer Robbie Williams whom she knows (now). I think I might be alone in this but Robbie Williams entertains the hell out of me, especially his interviews. He told the story of meeting Pink over email and she’d mistaken him for a chef:

    I’m more in a constant state of “What the f’in hell, how the f! are we going to survive and do I really want to be in a country with the type of people who would support this horrible f’in man?”

    My boys are 10 and 12. They know Trump is a horrible person and a disaster for our country. They went with me when I voted for Hillary and watched as I cried while marking my ballot. They cried with me when Trump “won” the election. And we live in Tennessee, a very red state. So they have heard, I’m sure, a lot from the “other side” in the past year, in school, etc. But they remain steadfast in their beliefs. Because I talk to them. They NEED to know what is going on in their country. I talk to them about all of the sexual assault/harassment that is now in the firefront of public consciousness. They know what is and will be expected of them as men in this world. Yes, I agree with Pink. I have been accused of “brainwashing” my kids by a family member. I simply asked him, “If I were teaching them to be conservative Republicans, would you not also call that brainwashing? You’re a hypocrite if you say no.” He didn’t say anything in response, just looked at me with his mouth agape.

      Same. My son turned 10 in October, and comforting him when he cried because Trump won was one of the toughest things I’ve had to do as a mom. My son did me proud when he asked during the election season, “mom, why does Donald Trump say such bad things about people from Mexico? I want to ask him why he says those mean things, because they’re not true.” Out of the mouths of babes.

      We live in Texas, thankfully in a large, blue city in the sea of red, but we’re contemplating a move to the suburbs (we’ve outgrown our little city house) and my husband and I both worry about the political climate our kids will have to navigate if we do.

      My son knows that Donald Trump isn’t fit to be president; we talk a lot (A LOT!) about the Constitution, and separation of powers, and being a good person. I try to answer questions honestly, but as neutrally as possible. I would be lying if I didn’t admit, though, that my heart swelled with pride when my five year-old told me “mom, Donald TRUMP is a mean bully!” She’s not wrong. I high-fived her. And then we talked about what it means to be kind and fair. Sigh. C’mon, Mueller!!

    I love her and her feisty attitude. She has such a genuine smile!

    I feel sorry for the next President because she’s going to have one holy hell of a mess to clean up when that fat bastard gets impeached.

    Love P!nk. She was great on GN. She spoke also about being an older female performer in the music business and how her label basically sat her down for ‘the talk’ about it. So I’m even more happy that she’s doing so well with this album, who wouldn’t want more of her and other musicians who’ve had some life experience and do more than get by with minimal clothing and songs of no substance.
