Republican nominee Donald Trump is the President of the United States. At the 2016 Presidential Election, Trump emerged victorious and beat Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. A lot of people voted for the businessman and former “The Celebrity Apprentice” host. Including singer Katy Perry’s parents.
Perry, who has been a staunch supporter of Clinton since the 2016 Presidential Election began, spoke to a large crowd gathered at the Clinton election night party in New York City. “What a great country this is that gives us the freedom to express our differences, our opinions, our hopes and our fears,” the singer told the crowd, “Tonight, my parents voted for Trump. But you know what? We will still all be sitting at the same table for Thanksgiving.”
The 32-year-old songstress said, “This is the moment we need to remember that we all love our parents and we all love our children. I can rest easy knowing that both my nieces at home will never see themselves less than equal.”
Perry went out to vote for Clinton on Oct. 25. She shared a throwback photo of her casting her vote on her birthday. “Throwback to Oct 25th when I gave myself the best bday prezzy ever by voting for my girl @hillaryclinton (also, I’m still in my robe because for just this once, I am early) #stilltimeforyoutovotetho” she captioned the photo.
The “Roar” singer has been enthusiastically championing for the former Secretary of State on social media.
Unfortunately, Perry’s dream, and many other celebrities, were crushed when Trump became the elected President of the United States after the votes were counted. Clinton supporters Lady Gaga, Emily Wickersham, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Bruce Springsteen and Jennifer Lopez are sure to be sorely disappointed.
