While hosting the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, singer Alicia Keys took the opportunity to call for President Donald Trump to be impeached.

Breitbart News reported that Keys took the stage near the beginning of the show to perform her own version of the song “Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi. The star revamped the lyrics of the song to include reference to various nominees at the music show, including Ariana Grande and K-Pop group BTS. However, she also made sure to include some lyrics about impeaching President Trump.

“Tonight we must unite in spite of all the news that we’re seeing,” Keys sang as she also played piano. “It’s like so crazy. I don’t even watch TV.”

“Commander in chief impeached, y’all get out, let’s bring Cardi B. Cardi — can you please show all these people what to do?” she added.

Do you support President Trump for 2020?

Cardi B is a 26 year-old former stripper-turned-rapper who has been open about her hatred for President Trump. Over the past few weeks, Cardi B has begun saying that she wants to run for Congress, and she has even earned the endorsement of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Unfortunately for Keys, her little political moment backfired on her, as social media users made it clear that they don’t care what she thinks about the current president.

Keys’ move was particularly classless given the fact that the Grammys took place hours after the death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, who was killed on Sunday morning in a helicopter crash along with his 13 year-old daughter and seven others. Keys opened the show by paying tribute to Bryant, and it was hoped that she and her fellow stars would be able to put their leftwing politics aside for an evening to honor the athlete.

“We are literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built,” Keys said to kick off the show. 

Unfortunately, Keys just couldn’t resist still using the awards show to take digs at Trump like the ignorant liberal elitist that she is.
