Twitter Had a Big Problem With Hillary Clinton's New Pusha-T Contest

They're saying she's getting in formation.

Published September 29th

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are trying to pull out all the stops before November 8. Both are known to pander, so it’s no surprise that one of the candidates is trying to reach out to younger audiences before Election Day.

Clinton is teaming up with Pusha T in order to get young people registered to vote. Presumably, the whole thing began back in July when the Virginia Beach rapper began wearing t-shirts reading “delete your account,” a phrase the Democratic nominee tweeted out months ago in reply to Trump.

Well, now you have the opportunity to actually win a meet-and-greet with the G.O.O.D. Music rapper and president. Anyone who registers to vote through Clinton’s official website has a shot.

Pusha T’s been a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton from the jump. In an interview with Business Insider from earlier this year, Push said Clinton wasn’t familiar with his music, but did express her appreciation for his endorsement.

As always with any news from this election, Twitter weighed in. Some wondered why Pusha T was the rapper she decided to enlist for her voting campaign. Others accused the potential first female commander-in-chief of pandering to young urban audiences and being inauthentic.

Check out what Twitter had to say below alongside Hillary Clinton’s Pusha T collaboration tweet.
