Queen Bey showed up and showed out for Hillary Clinton at a Cleveland rally on Friday.
Hill is bringing out the big guns in the final days of her election, and there's no bigger Uzi than Beyonce Knowles Carter. And Ohio is currently up for grabs so the HRC campaign is trying to energize young, African American voters to turn out on Election Day.
Beyonce has grown rather woke this year--from her opus Lemonade to her support for Black Lives Matter and denunciation of North Carolina's transphobic HB2 bill--so really, a Beyonce Hillary endorsement was inevitable. Not to mention the fact that Bey and Hillz have a lot in common.
They're both identifiable by one name. They've both been linked to the Illuminati. They both allegedly carry hot sauce in their bags (swag). They're both strong, powerful women who've had to publicly deal with their respective men being lyin' cheatin'-ass bastards. And they both like to get down. Hard.
Bey also spoke briefly about why she was "with her":
"There was a time when a woman's opinion did not matter. If you were black, white, Mexican, Asian, Muslim, educated, poor or rich--if you were a woman, it did not matter. Less than 100 years ago, women did not have the right to vote. Look how far we've come from having no voice to being on the brink of making history, again, by electing the first woman president. But we have to vote. The world looks to us as a progressive country that leads change.
"Eight years ago, I was so inspired to know that my nephew--a young, black child--could grow up knowing his dreams could be realized by witnessing a black president in office. And now we have the opportunity to create more change. I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless. We have to think about the futures of our daughters, our sons, and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do. And that is why I'm with her."
I mean, Blue Ivy's been at her mom's concerts so she's very familiar with seeing a woman lead a country, but that's neither here nor there. Check out Bey's statements, as well as some pantsuit-flanked dancing, in the video below (h/t: NowThis):
