Mariah Carey Shades Trump by Thanking ‘President’ Hillary Clinton
On Monday (August 5), the "Always Be My Baby" hitmaker let her politics be known on social media when she referred to Hillary as "President Clinton" after she ran into the former Democratic candidate and her husband following a recent Barbra Streisand concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
“An honor to meet President Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton! Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for our country,” Carey tweeted alongside a pair of selfies with the Clintons.
In the 2016 election, Hillary beat Trump in the popular vote but lost the Electoral College — and it definitely looks like the singer's caption was meant to be cheeky, as well as throw some shade at the U.S.'s current president.
Carey has been a longtime Clinton supporter, however, she doesn't often publicly discuss her politics. “It’s so hard because I’m just an entertainer,” she previously told Andy Cohen during an episode of Watch What Happens Live. “I’m not a political analyst. So I don’t want to be vocal about my true feelings about all of this, but I have them.”
