Hip-hop artist Pharrell Williams made the case for a female president in a way that Hillary Clinton probably is unable to.
At a Thursday night rally, Williams joined the Democratic presidential nominee and her former primary rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in an effort to boost voter turnout in a critical battleground state.
"It makes me angry when people say she can't lead our country because she's a woman. How dare anyone question a woman's ability. Every person on this planet was brought into this world by a woman," Williams said to applause from the audience of more than 5,000 supporters.
"Women carry so much every day, including us for nine months," Pharrell said. "Don't we call the planet Mother Earth?" Williams told the crowd at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek amphitheater.
The three took the stage to Farrell's hit song Happy. Clinton has avoided discussing her own gender on the campaign trail, instead focusing on the need to increase opportunity for all women. Regardless, Trump has accused her of playing the "gender card."
Williams is obviously neither a woman nor a politician. It explains why he may have been able to make a case for having a woman hold the nation's highest office in a way that Clinton can't.
