Music producer Pharrell Williams urged all females to go to the polls and vote for Hillary Clinton -- even if she's dishonest.
Hillary's dishonest, but so are you, Williams seemed to imply to a room full of women while campaigning for Clinton at an industry conference on Tuesday.
“If all the women in this nation decided to vote and support the first female candidate, there’d be nothing to worry about,” Williams said at Variety‘s Inclusion summit at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. “It’s that easy [to defeat Donald Trump]," he added.
But Williams, 43, raised eyebrows when he said, “Has [Clinton] been dishonest about things? Sure. Have you?” before adding: “She don’t lie no more than any other [female] politician does.”
Williams was taken aback by the chilly response to his statements.
“That silence in this room right now is often what I feel when you see some of the things that are being said, not just about my culture, but about women,” Williams said.
Then he tried a scare tactic:
“I’m praying that women come together and save this nation. You think about the destructive things that have come from mankind, it’s mostly men.”
Williams didn't sound as confident on Tuesday as he did in 2014 when he predicted Clinton would be America's 1st female president.
On Thursday, the studio singer is scheduled to appear alongside Bernie Sanders at a Clinton campaign rally in Raleigh, North Carolina.
