Politics Take Center Stage

Politics Take Center Stage

It's rock 'n' roll Romney. Ann Romney wore a sexy leather outfit for her appearance on The Tonight Show.

Leno got Ann's reaction to that hilarious spoof video of her husband Mitt doing the gangnam dance.

“Yeah that's Mitt,” said Ann.

She also spoke about that recent much-publicized moment when she got testy about criticism of her husband.

“I stepped out of the interview, and I was like 'Oh dear, was I little strong,'” said Romney.

A lot of people are scratching their heads over a strange endorsement of president Obama by Madonna, a vote of confidence that may have done more harm than good.

It came at a concert in Washington D.C.

"Y’all better vote for Obama, ok?," said Madonna.

Then Madonna came up with this baffling take on the Obama presidency:

"For better or for worse, all right, we have a black Muslim in the White House."

Obama has long had to fight off-the-wall claims that he is a secret Muslim.

Madonna said later, "I was being ironic. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim."

On ABC's The View, Sherri Shepherd had this to say about Madonna's endorsement:

"I can't tell you're being ironic. That's why she got the backlash. [She] didn't make any motion to say, 'Ok, I'm being ironic or I'm being sarcastic,' or wink or anything. So, I think you're leading a lot of people on."

Meanwhile, the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinajad spoke at the United Nations Wednesday.

And Mideast tensions sparked a bizarre fight in a New York City subway station.

A woman tried to spray paint over a controversial pro-Israel poster, as another woman tried to block her.

The showdown happened at the Times Square station.

The woman with the can of spray paint was identified as Egyptian-born Mona El-Tahawy, a freelance journalist who has appeared on MSNBC and CNN.

"You’re under arrest," police told the woman who had the spray paint.

She was hauled off in handcuffs, still protesting.

"I will continue to non-violently protest hate," she said.
