Donald Trump has launched a full-blown social media attack on Rihanna!

In a fiery rant, the former President disapproved of her performance at the Super Bowl Halftime show. The pop icon took the stage solo for the first time in seven years and delivered a show-stopping, career-spanning set in Glendale, Arizona. Despite the excitement from fans and critics alike, Trump was not impressed and called the performance insulting.

Donald Trump Slams Rihanna's Super Bowl Performance In Latest Outburst

While everyone was left to recover after the Barbadian singer gave a powerful and moving performance at the biggest event in American sports, the former Head-of-State was busy trolling.

In a tweet, Pop Crave posted a picture of the actress in her electrifying red outfit from the event beside his face alongside his statement. They wrote above the image, "Donald Trump attacks Rihanna, calls her halftime show the "worst" in Super Bowl history." Meanwhile, the interesting tweet he posted read:

"EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history. 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!"

Some fans came to her defense by coming for Trump in a series of replies, like this person who retorted by spinning Trump's statement to attack him instead, "EPIC FAIL: Trump gave, without question, the single worst presidency in American history. This after insulting far more than half of our nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with his foul and insulting language. Also, so much for his 'Publicist.'"

Another person hilariously stated, "Lmao. When did we ask? ?." This fan took a jab at the former president by writing, "he still thinks he's relevant in 2023."

Earlier, Rihanna had been the subject of criticism from Trump and Republican Ronny Jackson, who launched Twitter attacks against her talent and appearance just days before her much-anticipated posthumous performance at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show.

So far, she has chosen to take the high road about the situation; however, The Blast came up with savage ways that she could get back at the duo. One was to remind the American politician about the cease-and-desist letter issued to Trump after finding out that he played her music during his 2018 political rally.

The second way could be by publicly making fun of his tweet during her performance, showing that she finds it funny and is very un-bothered about it. Finally, she could ignore it like she has, proving how classy, booked, and busy she is.

Rihanna returned to the stage at Super Bowl LVII with a captivating performance during the Apple Music Halftime Show on Sunday night. The 34-year-old showcased her versatility and talent, delivering a set that included some of her greatest hits, such as "Bitch Better Have My Money," "Where Have You Been?", "Only Girl in the World," "Work," etc.  

She ended the night on a high note with a powerful rendition of her chart-topping hit, "Diamond," sending the crowd into a frenzy. Her performance included an awe-inspiring aerial display suspended on a platform high above the field, an extended stage that spanned almost the entire area, and dancers in white, fluffy space suits.

As expected from the fashion icon, her stage attire was a standout feature of the show. She sported a bold red jumpsuit with a shimmering plastic detail on her chest. Her hair was styled in a high ponytail with a few braids and diamond earrings, complementing the final song of her set, "Diamond." 

She later slipped into a custom-leather maxi puffer coat with integrated gloves and orange MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Low sneakers. She ended by leaving everyone with something to talk about by revealing her baby bump, signifying that she was expecting her second child. 

This moment made history as she would be the first pregnant woman to take center stage during the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Her loved ones, including partner A$AP Rocky and the father of their 9-month-old son, cheered from the stands.
