After President Trump called Madonna “disgusting” for her “blowing up the White House” comment at the Women’s March in D.C., a trend emerged: #MadonnaWeAreWithYou.

But the first use of the hashtag came in August 2012 — from a Twitter account of a Dr. Mills ‏@DR_MDNA.

A big-time Madonna (and Serbia) fan with 918 followers, Mills also appears to like “Game of Thrones.”

So he’s probably delighting in the current dustup between the celebrity powerhouses.

Trump dumped on Madonna during an interview Thursday with Sean Hannity on Fox News.

“I think she hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt that whole cause,” Trump said of the singer. “I thought what she said was disgraceful to our country.”

As Rolling Stone noted: “Madonna drew heavy criticism for the remarks, including a jab from White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and insinuations of Secret Service investigations from Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway. Newt Gingrich condemned the singer as being part of ’emerging left-wing fascism’ and noted she ‘ought to be arrested.’ Meanwhile, Texas radio station HITS 105 announced it will stop playing the singer’s music due to her “un-American sentiments.'”

On Sunday, Madonna said her comments were taken out of context, and insisted: “I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it’s important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety.”

No matter. Madonna had her backers.
