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.
Enter to win: meet Pusha T. Register to vote and you’re automatically entered to win. https://t.co/n6NH65Mvkq— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 28, 2016
Did Pusha T start supporting Hillary before or after she chose a VP named Kaine?— justin lehmann (@justindoesmusic) September 28, 2016
Hillary Clinton using a guy who is famous for rapping about dealing cocaine to promote voter registration is bizarre, but I do love Pusha T— andrew (@andrewnolan2) September 28, 2016
Hillary Clinton was endorsed by John Warner and Pusha T today so basically she's getting every vote in Virginia— Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) September 28, 2016
If Hillary Clinton can tell me who Pusha T is, I'll tell congress, that I deleted those emails, & that Benghazi was my idea @HillaryClinton— Piers (@FestivelyPlump) September 28, 2016
Is anyone else laying in bed laughing at Hillary Clinton offering voters a chance to meet Pusha T if they register to vote. I'm done.— Rose (@whatfamm) September 28, 2016
I can't imagine @HillaryClinton is listening to Pusha T. I need answers— Epic Hates You More (@EpicFoxx) September 28, 2016
Hillary has danced, claimed to carry hot sauce in her bag, let Mary J serenade her, and now enlisted Pusha T. Whew. #strangerthanfiction— Baldwin Carmichael (@thedarkerbrotha) September 28, 2016
