“I Want To Be As Good A President As Beyoncé Is A Performer.” Hillary Clinton

“I Want To Be As Good A President As Beyoncé Is A Performer.” Hillary Clinton

Apparently, we’re not the only ones inspired by Beyoncé’s impeccable work ethic. Recently, at a town hall in Iowa, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton told supporters: “I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer.”

According to Time, her statement was in response to an attendee of the event, who asked: “If you could choose, would you rather be the president or Beyoncé?”

“I’d rather be president because I can’t sing,” said Clinton. “Nobody would pay to see me sing or dance. Even when I was a way lot younger, that just wasn’t in the cards for me.”

“You see her on TV, it’s impressive; you see her in person, you’re just stunned,” she continued, “Thinking like, how does she do that? Really. I mean, she singing, she’s up, and she’s down. She’s just amazing.”

“I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer,” she finally concluded.

And from the looks of it, Beyoncé has similar feelings for Hillary. Back in May, the Grammy Award-winning singer was spotted at a campaign event for the former first lady.

    Oh just another obsessed fan that happens to be at the top of the ‘food chain’. Beyonce is a good performer, but you have to be the BEST (Taylor Swift, hy) to become the president of America, and Beyonce isn’t the best. Dazzal.

    Why would someone, if the person isn’t infatuated or intoxicated, ask a renowned and influential woman such as Hilary if she’d be Beyonce? Sigh

      Wait, Beyonce is not the best but Taylor Swift is the best? I’m sorry, based on what well-researched authority is this postulation made? Or are we simply to take that to God from the lips of an evident Swiftie?

      I am a die-hard fan of Shakira Isabelle Ripoll Mebarak but didn’t make a mention of her (even though she’s better than Beyonce in that department still), goes to show how impartial I am in my disposition. Taylor performs better, the stage settings, the charisma and all…I prefer Taylor’s performance 2 Bey’s…my opinion, u have yours! Ciao

          I’m not surprised seeing as Shakira is just known by that, Shakira. Isabelle is another name of hers, you’re not to know.

            Let’s put it this way; A lady that can mount a stage with nothing but a ripped crop shirt, spandex pants, no make-up, no back-up dancers, no slippers and still wow a very impressive audience is a demigod.

    Hillary was asked the question, she didn’t bring it up to “win beyhive votes”. She was asked and IMO she answered very well!

      U do know some of these people asking questions during political rallies are planted? Even the answers given ve been rehearsed.

      Saying the wrong things and making too many mistakes cost her in 2008.

      That’s what the republicans are suffering right now. Donald Trump has refused to say what others(including his handlers) want him to.

                  Mandy have seen you, you can’t be broke, disgustingly girly, aids-like skinny and ugly. Girl you need to calm down and pick a struggle. It’s just wrong on so many levels to be battling with all of that.

                    Don’t be such a liar. It’s okay to admit that you are at a disadvantage, when someone knows you and you don’t know the person, instead of peddling lies as a way to front that you’re in your game. But if this is what makes you sleep well at night, by all means, peddle your lies, you big fat slob who thinks he’s all that.
                    Rich indeed. You’re a JOKE!

    Ok I think we can all agree that Beyonce is a good performer. Probably the best living performer there is rn. We know, moving on… What I don’t get is why such an irrelevant question was asked, but I guess it achieved it’s purpose because here we are miles away suddenly reminded about Hilary Clinton’s existence
