Former President Donald Trump deemed Rihanna’s Halftime Show performance at last night’s Super Bowl an “EPIC FAIL.”
The former President further suggested the singer’s performance was “the single worst” in the National Football League’s (NFL) 56-year history of the annual playoff game.
“Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history,” Trump wrote.
“This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language. Also, So much for her ’Stylist!’”

Sunday’s Super Bowl Halftime Show featured Rihanna performing a medley of hits encompassing her 18-year career, including “Umbrella,” “Rude Boy,” and “Diamonds” among others, surrounded by a myriad of backup performers dressed in white overcoats.
Viewers speculated the singer was pregnant because her outfit appeared to show a baby bump — a rumor that a representative for Rihanna confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter.
Some viewers commended what appeared to be an apolitical performance in contrast with last year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, while others suggested Rihanna’s performance was “inappropriate.”
“Why is she touching her crotch in a show kids are watching?” asked Liz Wheeler, host of The Liz Wheeler Show, referring to a moment in which Rihanna appeared to mimic a Michael Jackson dance move by grabbing her groin.
“And why are her backup dancers dressed like hazmat COVID freaks that do those gross brain swab tests?”
Apparently I’m the only person in Twitter who thinks Rihanna’s halftime show was terrible. Why is she touching her crotch in a show kids are watching? And why are her backup dancers dressed like hazmat COVID freaks that do those gross brain swab tests?

“How conservatives lose culture: nothing wrong with Rihanna’s performance but finding things wrong anyway,” noted the Daily Wire’s Candace Owens in contrast to critics of the singer’s performance.

Rihanna’s Sunday performance appeared to contradict the singer’s 2019 statement explaining she was boycotting the NFL playoff game performance in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who infamously began taking a knee pitch-side before games in protest and support of the Black Lives Matter movement beginning in 2016.
“I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler,” she said at the time. “There’s things within that organisation that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now,’” the former President said of Kaepernick in 2017. “‘Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’”
