IN THREE DAYS, Americans will go to the polls and cast their votes in one of the most hotly contested presidential elections.

With that in mind, both Clinton and Trump are deploying a few last-minute tactics to convince undecided voters to come over to their side.

Clinton’s trump card? (Pardon the pun.) A certain Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter.

Last night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z appeared at a Hillary Clinton rally in Cleveland, Ohio, and proudly declared that they were with her

There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter. If you were black, white, Mexican, Asian, Muslim, educated, poor or rich. If you were a woman, it did not matter. Less than one hundred years ago, women did not have the right to vote. Look how far we’ve come from having no voice to being on the brink of making history. Again. By electing the first woman president.
Eight years ago, I was so inspired to know that my nephew, a young black child, could grow up knowing his dreams could be realised by witnessing a black president in office. And now we have the opportunity to create more change. I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless.

(Something tells us that Blue Ivy is already fully aware of the possibilities for women by virtue of the fact that Beyoncé is her Mam, but we’ll allow the sentiment.)

She also projected this quote from Hillary Clinton on the screen at the event

And here they are backstage.

Notice that Beyoncé is wearing the I’m With Her t-shirt.

Did we mention there were pantsuits?

Well played.

Let’s just hope that Hillary isn’t reminded of this lyric anytime soon, yeah?
