"If the fucking president of the United States could please put our government back in business," she says.

Gaga continued to speak on the matter as fans cheered, adding "there are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money."

She then criticized Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, who recently accepted a job at a school that excludes LGBT children, according to Billboard.

"And to Mike Pence, who thinks it's acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ: you're wrong," Gaga says. "You say we should not discriminate against Christianity. You are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian. I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and you can look yourself in the mirror and you'll find it right there."

She then went back to singing her song.

Gaga joins other celebrities who have criticized the Trump administration recently, including Cardi B.

When conservative commentator poked fun at Cardi's criticisms, the rapper was quick to fire back.
