We feel Miley Cyrus‘ pain.
The Voice mentor started off very clearly dejected, wondering if her sexuality was alienating her from the rest of the country:
“Given the result, maybe I really am different, and maybe a lot of people that I’m surrounded by think with open minds and open hearts, like I do.”
Ugh. That just breaks our hearts!
Unfortunately, it didn’t end there… the pop star continued to lament Hillary’s loss, adding:
“And, I do want to say that I’ve been very vocal for my support for everyone besides Donald Trump. I heavily supported Bernie [Sanders]. I heavily supported Hillary. And I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president. And that’s what makes me so sad, is that I just wish that she had that opportunity because she’s fought for so long. And because I believe her when she says she that she loves this country. This is all she’s ever done. She’s given her life to make it better.”
But, Miz Cyrus has an important message for her faithful followers — and is actually encouraging them to remain hopeful, even with the racist Republican in power:
“And, Happy Hippies, we adjust if we accept everyone, who they are. And so, Donald Trump, I accept you. And, this is hard to say, but I even accept you as the President of the United States, and that’s fine. That’s fine because I think now I want to be a Hopeful Hippie.”
However, the 23-year-old couldn’t finish her sentence while trying to describe Donald Trump entering The White House, and broke down crying.
“President Obama, Mr. Obama, I want to thank you for everything you’ve done in these past eight years.”
But then, the Tennessee native heartbreaking started sobbing all over again.
She then launched into a passionate plea directed at the cringe-worthy President-elect, begging:
“But please, please treat people with love and treat people with compassion and treat people with respect, and I will do the same for you. And anyway, anything you want to talk about or understand, maybe people that don’t think the same way that you and some of the people that support you do, please, if you want to open your mind and open your heart, I would love to give you a key.”
Miles tearfully signed off expressing her gratitude for Hillary:
“Thank you Hillary for inspiring us.”
