These 21 celebrities have endorsed and even donated to Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton has been a controversial figure since before her announcement to run for president (again) in the 2016 election. On social media, it’s often difficult to determine whether those criticizing Clinton are Democrats or Republicans because many people from both parties seem to have problems with her constant lying and overall untrustworthy nature. With Bernie Sanders as a strong contender for the Democratic nomination throughout the race, many Democrats were split within the party and liberal celebrities took to social media to declare their support for either Hillary or Bernie. Click through the slideshow to see which of your favorite celebrities are behind Hillary for president.
1. George Clooney
The Academy Award-winning actor recently wrote an open letter declaring his support of Clinton and said that Clinton was “the only grown-up in the room.” He encouraged fellow Clinton supporters to enter a lottery for a chance to attend a fundraiser in Hillary’s honor at Clooney’s home. He also said, “In all of this clutter, there’s been one consistent voice. 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.”
2. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe has come forward and informally said that she and her sisters love Hillary Clinton. In a post on her website, Khloe wrote, “No matter what candidate you support for the next presidential election, you have to admit that it’s f*cking AWESOME that a woman is up for the job!!! Hillary Clinton deserves a big ‘DAAAAAAAMN, Gina!’ for being the first to get this close. So dope.” Not exactly the most official or dependable endorsement, but a show of support nonetheless.
3. Shonda Rhimes
The woman behind Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and Grey’s Anatomy was the driving force behind Hillary’s new ad campaign—which starred her and Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, and Ellen Pompeo (who also voiced their support).
