Madonna has a simple explanation for why she thinks so many women voted for Donald TrumpDonald TrumpFreedom Caucus member condemns GOP group pushing 'Anglo-Saxon political traditions' MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's new free speech site to ban certain curse words Secret Facebook groups of special operations officers include racist comments, QAnon posts: report MORE for president: "Women hate women." 

"Women hate women," the singer said during an interview with Billboard published Monday.

The singer drew a distinction between men and women, saying men protect each other while women protect men and children, instead of one another. 
  
"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," Madonna said.

Other women, Madonna said, didn't vote in the election because they didn't like either candidate or they didn't think Trump could win.
 
"They took their hands off the wheel, and then the car crashed," she said.
   
Madonna said she was in shock when she found out the election results and hasn't had a good night of sleep since. When the singer does manage to sleep, she said she wakes up only to remember once again that Trump actually is the president-elect, instead of just a nightmare she had.
 
"We're f---ed," she said.
 
Madonna and Trump have met in the past, according to the singer, when she originally found his "political incorrectness amusing." 
  
 
Madonna has previously criticized Trump and praised Hillary Clinton.
