Paul McCartney on Hillary Clinton: "She's With Me"
The former Beatle and Democratic presidential nominee met before a gig in Cleveland.
Paul McCartney and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton met Wednesday (Aug. 17) before his show in Cleveland at Quicken Loans Arena.
According to the Washington Post, Clinton's motorcade stopped by the the venue where McCartney was to play that night and she met behind closed doors with the former Beatle. Topics reportedly included the Olympics, the presidential race and their families. The U.K. Daily Mail reported the meeting also included McCartney's wife, Nancy Shevell. No photos were taken during the meeting, but McCartney later posted a photo on his Twitter account of the two with the headline “She's With Me” (see below).
Cleveland station WTAM posted the photo on Facebook and got some diverse reactions. “I saw a huge motorcade of police on motorcycles, 5 black bummers and 4 white vans come speeding out of the parking garage near the Q this afternoon. Now I know who it was for,” one poster wrote. “I love Paul's music but like him just a bit less now,” said another. One fan, however, loved it. “Great pic! Rock on Sir Paul!”
The British singer, who has just signed a worldwide recording deal with Capitol Records, performed a concert in the East Room for President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama after being honored with the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in 2010.
