"I show no Ill will to that other guy... but his language is divisive.. I want my daughter to grow up in a world where she can be whatever she wants to be.. we are stronger together!"
CNN)Hillary Clinton enlisted some star power Friday with a concert featuring Jay Z, Beyonce, Chance the Rapper and Big Sean, part of an effort to drum up excitement behind her campaign the weekend before Election Day.
The group of rap and hip hop icons urged voters to head to the polls on Tuesday and firmly backed Clinton's candidacy.
"I want my daughter to grow up seeing a women lead our country and knowing that her possibilities are limitless," said Beyonce, sporting a black-and-white polka dot pantsuit. "And that's why I am with her." Her performance was backed by dancers in blue pantsuits, an obvious reference to Clinton.
The Cleveland concert, meant to drive up turnout among young people in Ohio, was announced weeks ago, but only as a Jay Z performance, not a joint appearance with his wife.
"We have unfinished business to do," Clinton told the audience after the concert. "More barriers to break and with your help, a glass ceiling to crack once and for all!"
Clinton came out after a duet by Jay Z and Beyonce. In her short speech, Clinton quoted something the iconic rapper said during his 2008 performance for then-Sen. Barack Obama.
"And remember," Clinton said, "Jay memorably said something we should all recall: Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk. And Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could ran. And Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly!"
No one mentioned Donald Trump by name on stage, but multiple performers made mention of his candidacy.
"This other guy, I don't have any ill will ... he cannot be my president," Jay Z said. "He cannot be our president. Once you divide us, you weaken us, we are stronger together. And without further ado, I would like to introduce to you the next president of the United State, Miss Hillary Clinton."

Wanting to unite is divisive? Glad I get to learn new things everyday.

1000000% scripted. Anything and everything that Hillary does is scripted down to the last dot. Celebrities(most) do it for the fame and money they receive for doing this stuff. They truely do not care who's paying them as long as they get what they want. Which is of course money and fame.
I really wouldn't be surprised if there are lots of people who say in public they are for Hillary but end up voting for Trump in secret... You're publicly shamed for you opinion if you like Trump better and praised if you support Hillary. In this day and age people don't want the one who they are told to like, they want the under dog the one who gets all the hate.
Im from Cleveland born and raised.. just moved out here to Phoenix AZ.. and Im sad I missed this event.

Im watching the beginning of the rally right now and its invigorating
"Get out to vote!"
"Get your family out to vote!"
"Get your friends out to vote"
"Get people who you dont even like out to vote!"
I Lol'ed pretty hard after that one..
They also brought up all of Hillarys supporters (which drew cheers)
Then they brought up all of her derractors... namely Assange (which is interesting they even brought him up)...and Dabid Duke and the KKK... both of which were hit with 30k thinderous boo's
I feel the need to post about this because of the rapid fire of threads and posts people made about how hillary doesnt get people at her rallys, and how she cant rile up a crowd, and how some of you dont believe that many people support her...
I feel like this rally is proof in a way.. that of she wins.. and wins big.. it wont be fraud.. or rigging... it will be masses of passionate voters who really dislike Trump and see Hillary as an opportunity for something great.
