‘CELEBRITY IDIOT:’ Twitter conservatives rage after Kelly Clarkson calls Hillary Clinton a ‘badass’

Published

on

Country music phenom Kelly Clarkson expressed support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy this week, prompting a backlash from conservative fans.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, a reporter asked Clarkson, “Speaking of presidents, the election is starting to get in gear. Do you like any of the candidates?” The pop star replied, “I’m a fan of Hillary. She’s badass. I don’t just want a woman to win, I want the right person. And I think she’s also that.”

Team Clinton, reacting to Clarkson’s compliments, tweeted their own affirmation of the American Idol alum on Thursday:

Bustle points out Clinton has been a fan of Kelly Clarkson’s at least as far back as 2012, when the then Secretary of State emailed her deputies the following statement of encouragement before they testified at a congressional hearing: “Well, what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger (as I have rationalized for years), so just survive and you’ll have triumphed!”

Stronger (Doesn’t Kill You)” was a Friedrich Nietzsche-inspired pop hit Clarkson took to the top of the billboard charts in 2011.

Meanwhile, conservatives on Twitter have their own opinions about Clarkson’s stated support for Hillary Clinton. What follows is a sampling of recent reactions to Clarkson’s political comments in Rolling Stone:
