When in trouble, call Beyonce.

With Hillary Clinton and her Republican rival Donald J Trump both struggling to tip the scales in their favour in Ohio, guess who turned up and told people #ShesWithHer? Queen Bey, that's who.

Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z performed at a concert in Ohio in support of Hillary Clinton, where the singer said: "I want my daughter to grow up seeing a women lead our country and knowing that her possibilities are limitless.

We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons, and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do. And that is why I'm with her."

Chance the Rapper, J Cole and Big Sean also performed at the concert.

Meanwhile, Jay Z introduced Clinton as the "next president of the US", adding that "this other guy" (meaning Sir Orangehead) "cannot be my president".

Responding to their show of support, Clinton said: "When I see them, here this passion and energy and intensity, I don't even know where to begin. Because this is what America..."

At this umpteenth show of celebrity support for his rival - Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Miley Cyrus headlined one in Virginia a month ago and Katy Perry will perform in another one on Saturday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Trump reported said at his own rally: "I hear we set a new record for this building (where the rally was held). And by the way I didn't have to bring J-Lo or Jay-Z - the only way she (Clinton) gets anybody. I am here all by myself. I am all here all by myself. Just me. No guitar. No piano. No nothing".

And that pretty much sums up the kind of POTUS Trump would make - full of himself, and discounting the need to stand together and work.
