Lady Gaga tried to get her Pennsylvania Little Monsters hyped for her appearance today (Nov. 2) on behalf of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in Pittsburgh.
“Good morning PENNSYLVANIA! I’m so excited to see you today and SING for you!!!!!!! I believe in YOU & I!!!!” Gaga wrote alongside a pic in which she’s rocking her Biden/Harris button.
“Let’s talk about what America looks like with a KINDER President. WE NEED EVERY VOTE❤️ I’m with @JoeBiden —Lets go 24 hrs!!!!! PUSH!!!!!”
Gaga is in town for a Biden campaign event, during which she’s expected to perform two songs at a “drive-in event,” according to local reports.
Gaga has been all-in for former two-term Vice President Biden and his VP pick, Sen. Kamala Harris, which got the attention of President Trump over the weekend.
Trump, who is facing historically low approval numbers into Tuesday’s (Nov. 3) referendum on his chaotic first term is trailing Biden by large double-digit margins among Black voters, as well as seniors, women and independents, as well as trailing in key swing states Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin; according to the New York Times Biden has an 8-point lead over Trump in national polling as well.
Facing such historic headwinds, Trump time out to slam Gaga as an “anti-fracking activist” at a rally over the weekend, after Gaga hyped Monday’s appearance over the weekend, writing, “I LOVE THIS STATE. I’m here now! This place is filled with good hearted people—good hearted people that @JoeBiden loves. He’s a good friend. He’s the President this country needs to bring us back together.”
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh released a statement about Gaga’s support of Biden on Sunday (Nov. 1), writing, “Nothing exposes Biden’s disdain for the forgotten working men & women of PA like campaigning with anti-fracking activist Lady Gaga. This desperate effort to drum up enthusiasm is actually a sharp stick in the eye for 600,000 Pennsylvanians who work in the fracking industry.”
Trump weighed in as well in the early morning hours of Nov. 2, tweeting, “Just learned that Sleepy Joe Biden is campaigning in Pennsylvania with Lady Gaga, a proud member of ‘Artists Against Fracking.’ This is more proof that he would ban Fracking and skyrocket your energy prices…” Gaga wasn’t really sure what he was going on about, questioning what fracking even is on her Instagram Stories, where she laughed off the Trump campaign’s comments on Sunday. “What is a fracking? Keep your jobs PA,” she wrote.
