Gaga opened her halftime routine with an Americana medley — “America the Beautiful” and “This Land is Your Land,” along with part of the Pledge of Allegiance — and sang her hit “Born This Way,” all of which sent a message of inclusion and patriotism as opposed to the outright resistance to President Donald Trump the outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter espoused on Election Day.
