Natalie Maines, the 43 year-old lead singer of the “Dixie Chicks” musical group took to Instagram Sunday to mock President Donald Trump’s age and accuse him of senility.

Maines posted a photo of Trump of Trump awkwardly attempting to hold hands with world leaders, which was widely ridiculed by leftwing media in 2017. Next to the photo, Maines posted her sarcastic commentary on Trump:

“Listen, I think it’s unbelievable how people are badmouthing the President! It’s unacceptable! This is our President! How dare you make fun of the mentally ill and elderly? Not to mention, he’s the President of our United States Of America! Unbelievable. Don’t you know we live in a democracy?! You can’t do that sort of thing. What are you thinking?!”

The Dixie Chicks stirred controversy lost fans back in 2003 when they lashed out at another Republican President, George W. Bush, saying they were “ashamed” of having him as president.

Back in 2003, her band was ostracized from country radio after the group said it was against the Iraq War and that they were “ashamed” then-President George W. Bush was from Texas.
