Miley Cyrus Posts Emotional Video to Twitter Following Hillary Clinton's Presidential Loss
Miley Cyrus has posted an emotional video to Twitter following Hillary Clinton’s loss as the first female president of the United States. Late last night (Nov. 8), the election results came in that Donald Trump would be serving as the 45th president of the United States. While his supporters were full of praise, many in the music industry are still mourning Clinton’s loss, the “Hands of Love” singer amongst them.
“I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president, and that’s what makes me so sad,” Cyrus said in the video while tearing up. “I just wish that she had that opportunity because she’s fought so long and because I believe her when she says tat she loves this country, this is all she’s ever done. She’s given her life to make it better.”
“But like Donald Trump so ironically played after his speech and said ‘you can’t always get what you want’ and Happy Hippies we adjust and accept everyone [for] who they are,” Cyrus further said in the video. “And so Donald Trump I accept you, and this hurts to say but I even accept you as the president of the United States.”
She continued to fight back tears as she thanked Obama for his presidency and added, “ Please just treat people with compassion and treat people with respect.”

Cyrus herself was a strong voice during the election, and even stumped at the polls for Clinton. Late last month (Oct. 22) the singer joined Tim Kaine at a rally and went door-to-door to encourage students to vote for Clinton on the George Mason University campus. Originally a Bernie Sanders supporter, Cyrus came out strong for Clinton in the final months leading up to the election.
Breaking career barriers is what Hillary’s been doing for decades. After graduating from Yale Law School (where she met Bill!), she became the first female law associate at Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, and also became their first female partner. Make a plan to vote this Tues!!! #countdown #2days @hillaryclinton A photo posted by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on Nov 6, 2016 at 9:24pm PST
