Pop legend Madonna has criticised women that voted for Donald Trump in the US elections, confessing that his presidential victory "felt like someone died." Exit polls revealed that up to 42% of women voted for Trump.

Speaking to Billboard, the outspoken singer, who voiced her support of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, said that she was disappointed with the "insanely high" volume of women who guaranteed that business tycoon will become Barack Obama's successor.

According to The Like A Virgin hitmaker, some women would rather support a man that had sexual assault allegations levelled against him days before election day than show any female solidarity.

"Women hate women. That's what I think it is," she elaborated when pressed on why he got the support of so many women. "Women's nature is not to support other women. It's really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external.

"A lot of it has do with jealousy and some sort of tribal inability to accept that one of their kind could lead a nation."

Just like Hollywood actress Eva Longoria, the mother-of-four admitted she struggled to digest the reality that she was faced with and found herself at the centre of "major arguments. I was devastated, surprised, in shock," she said. "I haven't really had a good night's sleep since he has been elected. We're f***ed."

The 58-year-old, who was named Billboard's 2016 Woman of the Year, went on to add that while Trump was "a very friendly guy, charismatic in that boastful, macho, alpha-male way", he wasn't president material. "I just can't put him and Barack Obama in the same sentence, same room, same job description."
