Maybe it’s just us but does it seem with this presidential campaign that the in vogue thing to do is endorse a candidate? Anyway, pop icon Cyndi Lauper has just weighed in and she had this to say about Hillary Clinton:
“She’s the person who can actually do the job. She can work with these guys on both sides… because we’ve already seen the government shut down and we’ve already seen the people who moan about the people, ‘We care about the people!’ And that’s why you shut the government down?”
Lauper also stressed the need for people to vote and on that topic she said this:
“I know if I don’t vote — I’ll tell you this, and I know it’s true — the way Hitler got into Germany was that only 30 percent of the people voted, OK? And that can’t happen. And not that anybody’s like Hitler, but if you want to be included in your country, you better include yourself and use your vote. Use your vote as your voice. Because you don’t want to walk around voiceless.”
Editor’s Note: Cyndi is slightly off with her reference to the 1932 election. In fact, 80.58% of the eligible voters participated and Hitler’s party–one among six parties–received 33.09% of the votes with the closest party receiving 20.43% of the vote.
Question for our readers, do you care what celebrities, athletes, and performers have to say on political issues?
