Sia Uses 'The Greatest' to Praise Hillary Clinton's Stamina in Post-Debate Video
Sia reached into her bag of hits to support Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night (Sept. 27) with a mash-up video praising the former Sec. of State's strength. Pivoting off of Republican candidate Donald Trump's claims during Monday night's (Sept. 26) first presidential debate that his White House rival lacks the "stamina" to be an effective leader.
While Clinton came back with a list of her extensive political wins as Sec. of State and her endless congressional testimony on Benghazi, Sia went to the tape by posting a 33-second video with the candidates' comments overlaid with her song "The Greatest," which features the lyrics "Uh-oh, running out of breath but I/ Oh, I, I got stamina/."
As the "stamina" line repeats over and over, the video runs down Clinton's decades-long career in public life, showing her global travels, advocacy on behalf of women and children and meetings with heads of state and dignitaries. "As soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, a cease fire... he can talk to me about stamina," Clinton says in the video.
The clip ends with the #ImWithHer hash and the lyric "I'm free to be the greatest here tonight." Sia joins a rising chorus of stars pledging their vote for Clinton, which in recent days has included both Madonna and Katy Perry going naked in support of the former first lady.
