Hillary Clinton recited Jay Z's lyrics at a campaign concert in Cleveland

Hillary Clinton recited Jay Z's lyrics at a campaign concert in Cleveland

After raucous performances from Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay Z, Hillary Clinton had one simple message for the packed, cheering crowd at Cleveland's Wolstein Center: "Help us win OH". All have performed at Clinton campaign rallies in recent days.

One has to admit, they have a point: Why is Hillary Clinton okay with an African-American rapper using the N-word in a song - but not okay with the Republican nominee for president using the word pussy when bragging about how his status as a celebrity allows him to grope women with impunity? I'll tell you what: I've never said what he said in my life! "Help us win OH". The attack is aimed at appealing to moderate Republicans and independents who have been the holdouts of his campaign, turned off by his behavior but equally repelled by the possible return to Washington of Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. The concert, which was free and open to the public, is part of the Clinton's campaign's aggressive, final push to get voters - especially young voters - to the polls before Tuesday. Still, she plans an early vote for Clinton on Saturday or Monday.

Cleveland was sacked up tonight when Jay-Z headlined a star-studded free concert in support of Hillary Clinton.

His Michigan stop was hours before Clinton planned to rally Democrats in Detroit, where a large turnout of black voters has always been crucial to Democrats' success.

Wrong. The last time we checked, it's not cheating for a celebrity to campaign on a politician's behalf. But the IN governor told about 150 people at the Lansing airport Friday that Trump's "movement is coming together" IN the final days of the campaign. Bernie Sanders and pop star Pharrell Williams.

Trump was set to headline two events Friday in New Hampshire while running mate Mike Pence is scheduled to visit Michigan, North Carolina and Florida. The GOP presidential nominee then questioned whether Jay Z and Beyoncé were "talking or singing" their lyrics.

Trump said: "On quick notice, we didn't bring any so-called stars along ― we didn't need them".

Friday night's event was originally advertised as featuring only Jay Z, but as Clinton headed for Cleveland after a pair of stops in Pennsylvania and MI, her campaign informed reporters that the rapper was bringing some special guests as well. "I am here all by myself". I was thinking, "Maybe I'll just try it". And she told voters to imagine a Donald Trump presidency and tried to relay a sense of urgency. He started his day in Atkinson, New Hampshire, population 6,800 and nearly 98 percent white, according to the Census Bureau. From there, he was bound for Wilmington, Ohio, another overwhelmingly white town where just 13 percent of its 12,500 residents have a college degree.

Speaking more than 3200 miles from the Mexican border, Trump drew loud cheers in Atkinson when he vowed to build a massive wall between the USA and Mexico.

"Her plans would mean generations of terrorism, extremism and radicalism spreading into your schools and through your communities", he said. Clinton's team was encouraged by strong Latino turnout, particularly around Miami.

Trump's vulgar language has extended to the campaign trail.

In spite of a close race in national polling, Trump's path to victory remained narrow.
