If there was any rumor or confusion regarding to Kim Kardashian’s political stand, on 9/24, it was all cleared up with Kim’s Twitter post a picture of Hilary Clinton in a Victorian frame card, with the hashtag “STRAIGHTUP I’M WITH HER”. After she met Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser, Kim Kardashian posted a selfie picture of her & Mrs. Clinton, with her husband Kayne West in the background. She tagged: “I got my selfie!!! I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident.” Hillary Clinton & Kim Kardashian were amicably friendly to each other. Mrs. Clinton said: “I really enjoyed meeting her; I really found her to be warm and very personable”. When she was asked whether Mrs. Clinton considered Kardashian to be a good role model for young women, she was very clever in choosing her words not to upset the powerful Kardashian clang: “I think all of us in our own ways can be inspirational or aspirational for people, and I certainly think many people see her as someone who gets up every day and tries to figure out how to make that day successful.”
This charisma actor, screenwriter, producer, director and humanitarian has pulled out quite a fantacular red carpet style of support to Clinton.

There is another lady in George Clooney’s political life, and that is Hillary Clinton. He and his wife Amal Clooney hosted a fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton in San Francisco back in May 2016. In his letter sent out to his guests, George Clooney explained one of the reasons he supported Hillary Clinton because of her political experience. "… A voice of tolerance and experience, from a candidate who's spent a lifetime fighting for the rights of the less fortunate. A candidate who knows firsthand the complexity of our international relationships. That candidate is Hillary Clinton…” George Clooney has been a long-time supporter of the Democratic Party so his presidential choice this year was not a surprise, though it has raised quite a controversial topic around his choice of candidate he supported as well as the insane amount of fund raising tickets he set for Clinton’s fundraiser in May 2016.

Katy Perry is an ardent supporter of Hillary. Back in October 2015, Perry appeared on stage at a Clinton rally in Iowa, alongside the presidential candidate and her husband, Bill Clinton, in a white strapless dress emblazoned with Hillary's campaign logo. She screamed out to the crowd:'You're gonna hear us roar - to 2016 and beyond!' For Clinton’s birthday the next day after the rally, Kate Perry gifted Hillary Clinton with a gold pendant that spelled out the acronym 'POTUS,' which stands for ‘President of The United States.’ On Monday 9/26/2016, Katy Perry took to Twitter to announce this:”TOMORROW, I USE MY BODY AS CLICK BAIT TO HELP CHANGE THE WORLD”, and so she did. Not only she roared to support Hillary Clinton, but also bared it all naked to get voters’ attention.

Even though the superstar singer didn’t show up at the 2016 Democratic National Convention and was known to be a strong supporter of Barrack Obama during the 2008 presidential election, Beyonce has showed her support to Hillary Clinton this time around. To have Beyonce as her supporter, Mrs. Clinton was sure to get more popular among the African American voters. She quickly shared a photo of Beyonce at one of her fundraiser event and tweeted:” Say you’ll Bey on Team Hillary too.” On Ellen DeGeneres show, Hillary Clinton cleverly dropped a comment referring to Beyonce’s new album “Lemonade”:”I really believe in making lemonade out of lemons”. Mrs. Clinton also added: “I want to be as good a president as Beyonce is a performer.”
Ellen Degeneres put on a comedian face when she told Clinton she'd have considered to relocate her talk show to the White House, and no place else. Ahem! Look out for this one, she might support Hillary Clinton today, but she might be running for the White House someday.

During the Democratic candidate’s visit to The Ellen Degeneres show, Degeneres told Hillary Clinton that she’d definitely vote for Clinton:"You know what a supporter I am. I think that you're as smart as can be, I think you are qualified, I think you stand for everything that I want in a president."
In return, Hillary Clinton also held a high regard for Ellen Degeneres and her influential show. Mrs. Clinton even joked about offering Degeneres the vice president seat if she’d win the election. Ellen Degeneres jokingly turned the potential job offer down, citing the reason was that she would have considered relocation only if she could have recorded her show at the White House residence, not at a Vice President house. Good one, Ellen!

Lady Gaga has been a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign from the beginning. She took to Twitter with a photo of herself in a Star-spangled one-piece swimsuit and her tag to support Hillary Clinton:“#HILLARY2016 Nothing can keep a strong woman down. VOTE for the first female US president in history. Shake it up America, this country needs a little rock n’ roll.”
The popstar queen performed at a fundraising event for the Democratic front-runner in June 2015 with an insane ticket price started at a whopping 000. She also posed with the former First Lady holding a t-shirt printed “Yaaas, Hillary!” on it. That same T-shirt design has been printed quite a few to pass around her celebrity friends. In April 2015, Jamie Lee Curtis and Lady Gaga squeezed into the t-shirt together and she tweeted the photo with the caption: “@HillaryClinton brings people together.”

Even though the media mogul endorsed Barrack Obama over Hillary Clinton during their run for the 2008 presidential race, but she has lent her support this time around to Clinton with the campaign slogan: “I’m with her.” In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Oprah told Nancy O’dell that, “Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women. What this says is, there is no ceiling, that ceiling just went boom! It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world.”
Oprah appeared at the White House in June 2016 for its United State of Women Summit with Michelle Obama, where the two spoke about gender equality, life in the White House, and the first family's thoughts about post-presidency life. With her strong support of the women movement right and equality, there is no surprise Oprah would be all in to support Hillary Clinton for the president.
