Nicki Minaj dedicated her Anaconda performance to Trump and Biden while performing a whole set to close off the TIME 100 Gala.
Nicki Minaj brought the house down and too bad that Donald Trump was not there to see it. He left immediately after Ariana Grande’s performance which kicked off the ceremony at the Jazz in the Lincoln Center ballroom.

The ceremony was held to honor the Times 100 attended by all the honorees. Mr. Trump however got the call that he had won five preliminary elections and left the ceremony with wife Melanie.
It was his loss as the show continued with some great honor and tributes and ending with a stellar performance set by Nicki Minaj. The rapper performed her hits, “The Crying Game,” “Feeling Myself” and “Truffle Butter”.
She then declared to the crowd that she was very particular about politics and she dedicated her next performance to Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
The song was Anaconda and she incorporated Trump’s name in the first verse and Biden’s name in the second verse. She gave her full booty action to the performance and brought the celebrities in attendance to the dance floor.
At the end of it, she asked the crowd that which political person might like big butts more. She then gave a shoutout to all the women that they should keep doing what they were doing and keep their money in the banks and don’t rely on men to buy them cars or houses. She then performed Super Bass to end the show and told the ladies to keep kicking till next year.
The ceremony was attended by a multitude of stars including, Jenna Lyons, Padma Lakshmi and Norah O’Donnell, Aziz Ansari, Gina Rodriguez, Alexander Wang, Trevor Noah, Matthew Weiner, Jenji Kohan, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Karlie Kloss, Diane Paulus, Caitlyn Jenner, Priyanka Chopra, Lester Holt and FKA Twigs.
Some of the inspired speeches of the night came from Ford Foundation president Darren Walker, Congolese gynecologist Denis Mukwege, and Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton, who led a toast to Prince. Melissa McCarthy saluted fellow honorees Grande and geneticist Kathy Niakan.
