“Can’t Be Tamed” singer Miley Cyrus took to Twitter on Wednesday — the day after GOP presidential nominee Donald Trumpwon the election — to deliver an emotional, tear-drenched message of disappointment, acceptance and understanding.
“Maybe I really am different, and maybe a lot of people that I’m surrounded by think with open minds and open hearts like I do,” Cyrus said during the social-media missive.
Noting that she had supported Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, Cyrus lamented Clinton’s loss, holding out hope that Clinton would some day hold the highest office in the land.
“I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president,” Cyrus said. “So I just wish that she had an opportunity because she’s fought for so long and because I believe her when she says that she loves this country.”
That said, Cyrus also acknowledged that she accepts Trump as the next Leader of the Free World.
“Donald Trump, I accept you. And this hurts to say, but I even accept you as the president of the United States,” Cyrus said. “But please just treat people with love and treat people with compassion and treat people with respect, and I will do the same for you.”
The former “Hannah Montana” star went so far as to offer her counsel to the new president, should he need guidance on those with diverging viewpoints.
“Anything you ever want to talk about or understand [about] the people who don’t think the same way as you … if you want to open your mind and want to open your heart, I would love to give you a key,” Cyrus said.
