Some notable Democrats include power couples Jay Z and Beyoncé and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, who have raised millions for Obama’s campaign. Fashionable Obama supporters include Sarah Jessica Parker, co-designer of a “Viva Obama” shirt for the Runway to Win website, and Katy Perry, who has been rocking a ballot-inspired mini-dress with none other than Pres. Obama himself checked off. One of my personal favourites, Snoop Dogg/Lion posted his reasons for voting for Obama on Instagram, which included, “He mad cool yo” and “He wears a durag like me.” Even Kelly Clarkson is singing to the tune of “My Life Would Suck Without… Obama.” Lindsay Lohan has been flip-flopping in her support but technically isn’t even registered to vote. Political commentator Ann Coulter, proved that being PC isn’t her thing when she referred to Obama as a “retard” in a tweet following the final presidential debate. Donald Trump got in on the cringe-worthy action by requesting that Obama release his college records and passport information in exchange for a $5 million charitable donation. His video appeal is almost as questionable as Clint Eastwood’s bizarre ‘invisible Obama’ speech at the August Republican convention. My conclusion: maybe Romney should pay some of his celebrity supporters to keep their mouths (and Twitter accounts) shut.
