Tomorrow is Election Day, and while early voting has been underway for a while now, our candidates are throwing all they’ve got into the final stretch. Part of Hillary Clinton‘s last push was Get Out The Vote concert in Philadelphia on Friday, which included the musical stylings of the great Stevie Wonder. Following the concert, Wonder gave an interview with Philly.com, in which he makes it very clear that he is #WithHer.
“If you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?” he asked, to which the reporter replied “no.” He added, “Because I’m not an experienced driver, right?”
Wonder, who has been blind since birth, continued, claiming that Clinton was the only candidate with the qualifications to be an effective Commander-in-chief.
“So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation.”
Wonder also explained that he couldn’t support Trump because of his treatment of women and minorities.
“This is not a reality show. This is life in reality. So I’m with her because I believe in where we are, and where we are going to go. I have always believed that America is great. We’re just going to make it greater.”
At this point in the campaign, it’s unlikely that voters will change their positions at this point, but it’s good to see Wonder using his position to encourage people to get out and vote. So, yeah, vote tomorrow, if you haven’t already. Some polling stations will have pizza for voters, so you really have no excuse.
