Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a new supporter for her campaign: Miley Cyrus. It’s not surprising that Miley Cyrus’ political views align with the Democratic party, but the pop star really took the extra mile by actively campaigning and doing voter outreach in favor of Clinton.
Cyrus visited George Mason University in Virginia to talk to students in their dorm rooms about the presidential race, and ask whom they’re voting for. Students were obviously surprised to see the celebrity at their doors, but seemed more than willing to listen to Cyrus campaign for Clinton. Some of the students even told Cyrus they’d already voted for Clinton.
Cyrus sat and talked with several students, including brother and sister Mousa Abusaif and Halimah “Mimi” Abusaif. Both siblings are Clinton supporters, and Mousa even had a personal story to share about Trump.
Mousa revealed that he worked at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia and approached Donald Trump one day to seek a better job opportunity.
“I have a business acumen. I have ambition. I have a record of good service. Is there a place for me to grow in your organization, is there maybe an internship I could take with you?”
Mousa then explained to Cyrus that Trump attempted to have him fired after the conversation. Mousa ridiculed Trump for calling himself a “people’s person” and Cyrus agreed while extending condolences to Mousa for the encounter he had with Trump.
Cyrus continued to visit students within the dorm, and even played video games with one group as they talked about the presidential race.
Cyrus showed up in a classic “Miley” look by wearing an eccentric red, white, and blue outfit. Her ensemble included white leggings, a red and white striped skirt, silver heels, a sparkly blue bow crop top, and a hot pink, feathered headband.
Although students of George Mason University knew Cyrus was coming to their campus, they didn’t know exactly where she’d be. Once it was discovered which dorm the pop star was located in, hundreds of students flocked outside the building to catch a glimpse of the “Wrecking Ball” singer.
Miley Cyrus isn’t the only major celebrity to endorse Hillary Clinton. Katy Perry pulled a similar voter outreach initiative on Saturday, October 23 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Perry wore a “nasty woman” t-shirt, a reference to the insult Trump threw at Clinton at the last presidential debate, but that has since been turned into an empowering statement for women and Clinton supporters. Perry has been especially adamant this campaign season for people to go and vote, and has shown clear support for Clinton. During the Democratic National Convention, Perry was one of many singers who performed for the event. Demi Lovato, Alicia Keys, Paul Simon, Boyz II Men, Carole King, Lenny Kravitz and many more artists all gave musical performances during the DNC as well.
Miley Cyrus hopes that Clinton will bring a change that she and young voters want to see in America.
