Hillary Clinton: Miley Cyrus stumps for presidential candidate at George Mason University

Posted on

NBC Washington/Twitter

With less than three weeks to go before election day, Miley Cyrus stormed George Mason University in Virginia like a “Wrecking Ball” for the Hillary Clinton campaign on Saturday. 

It was announced earlier this week that the singer would visit the institution and speak with Millennial voters, impressing upon them the importance of voting. Reporters and students around campus shot video and photos of Cyrus making the rounds through the dorms, and chatting with students about Clinton and Donald Trump. 

Footage shot by Aimee Cho, reporter for NBC’s Washington affiliate, shows Cyrus surprising a dorm room full of her fans. 

 

BuzzFeed News reporter Emma Loop captured footage of Cyrus listening to 20-year-old Mousa Abusaif, who recounted a story of how Trump tried to get him fired from a country club in Washington. “I went up and I said to him, ‘I’m a hard worker, I have a business acumen, I have ambition, I have a record of good service. Is there a place for me to grow in your organization?'” Abusaif recalled. “Do you know what he tried to do? He tried to have me fired.”

Cyrus is an outspoken Clinton supporter and Trump dissenter. She called the Republican nominee “a f—ing nightmare” and later called out Jimmy Fallon for his controversial interview with Trump during a break in her Tonight Show performance.

A statement from the Clinton campaign (via InsideNova.com) released earlier this week reads, “As an advocate for LGBTQ rights, gender equality and environmental issues, Cyrus will knock doors to speak to students about the high stakes in this election for millennial voters, laying out Clinton’s vision for an America that is stronger together.”
