T.I. might be too foolish to wrap his brain around a woman running the White House, but Common is quite the opposite.
Known throughout his career as one of a handful of Black entertainers who don’t shy away from voicing their opinions on important social, economic and political issues, Common had much to say recently about who he’s riding with so far as the 2016 Presidential hopefuls continue to demonstrate why they believe they should be next on the list to claim the oval office.
The democratic debates gave the world a first glimpse at how well (or how terribly) the right-wingers handle themselves in the hot seat last week, and Common says front-runner Hillary Clinton makes a much better case for why she should be the next President than republican hot head Donald Trump. Speaking to The Grio’s Chris Witherspoon on the red carpet for Oprah Winfrey’s new “Belief” series that premiered on Sunday night, Common had this to say:
“I think it would be wonderful if we would get a woman in for president. I think it could be something powerful, in that I think Hillary is more aligned with what I believe would be a better president than Donald Trump. She definitely strikes me as someone that would serve our country and the world better as a president so that’s where I would put my vote right now.”
Common is also no stranger to using his celebrity as a platform for promoting activism in the African-American community, so if Hillary does indeed get his final vote, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him out there on the campaign trail urging us all to go out and vote sooner than later.
Does Hilary have your vote, Clutchettes?
