Hillary Clinton Wants To Be Like Beyoncé

Come harder; this won’t be easy. That’s the first thing that came to our minds when Hillary Clinton made the bold proclamation that she wants to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer.

In all fairness, Clinton was set up for that type of comment when an attendee at a town hall meeting in Iowa went way out in left field, asking the democratic candidate: “If you could choose, would you rather be the president or Beyoncé?” Because knowing that is far more important than figuring out how Clinton plans to handle immigration, health care, ISIS, police brutality, student loan debt, you know the stuff most Americans care about. Quick on her toes, Clinton answered the question, saying:

“I’d rather be president because I can’t sing. Nobody would pay to see me sing or dance. Even when I was a way lot younger, that just wasn’t in the cards for me.

“You see her on TV, it’s impressive; you see her in person, you’re just stunned. Thinking like, how does she do that? Really. I mean, she’s singing, she’s up and she’s down. She’s just amazing.

“I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer.”

Well, we all have dreams…

    If Hilary wants to be Beyonce then she wants to be basic.

    All she had to say is that she wanted to be basic then I might have understood.

    She handled the question okay. The girl who asked the question is the silly one. You get to ask a presidential candidate a question and you ask if she would want to be Beyonce? As if she would rather be a pop star than the leader of the free world. What is wrong with people? People act as if Beyonce has the cure for cancer or has figured out the solution to some major political problem.

      Right! What kind of question was that to ask? That sounds like something a child would ask. You have a chance to ask the next possible president a question and this is the best you can do….smh I swear pop culture has warped some people’s minds.

        It is really strange that so many people cannot separate entertainment from reality.

        “That sounds like something a child would ask. ”
        . . . or it can sound like something a “privileged” person would ask. I don’t know what this woman’s socioeconomic class is. However, I don’t think people with real kitchen table issues would give a rat’s behind about someone’s aspirations to be Beyonce.

    Hillary Clinton can only be Hillary. Beyonce has an amazing work ethic. She isn’t perfect, but no one can deny the talented records of Radio, I Care, Halo, Poison, Sweet Dreams, Start Over, Pretty Hurts, Start Over, etc. I don’t hate Yonce. 🙂 Some folks have an obsession with pop culture (which can be distracting) and we shouldn’t place pop culture above and beyond the well being of society overall. Some people unfortunately over exaggerate the importance of entertainers. That is why we have to place things into context. There is nothing wrong with listening to pop records from time to time. Yet, we need kids to have child care, we need the poor to have jobs, we need our waters to be cleaned, and we need other real changes in society so all of the people (not just the one percent) will benefit comprehensively.
