Skip to comments.“Thank you, Hillary.” Miley Cyrus tears up as she channels raw emotion of 65 million Americans

Miley Cyrus and the women writers of "The Tonight Show" penned real-time thank you letters to guest Hillary Clinton, and for six minutes, we all got to live vicariously.
If youre a woman who loves Hillary Clinton, its pretty easy to feel erased.
We are treated to endless deep dives of the Trump voter: who are they, who wronged them, what is the specific nature of the anxiety that led them to vote for an ignorant embarrassment of a bigot.
If you supported Bernie Sanders in the primary, it was easy to find breathless articles extolling your existence: your youth, your optimism, the issues that drove you to be so passionate.
For Hillary Clinton voters, there was none of that. We were told over and over that we did not actually love our candidate. We chose her out of dispassionate pragmatism, or some commitment to incremental politics. We would have preferred someone less flawed, obviously, but she was what we had. We were voting with our vaginas.
But stubbornly, we continued to love her. We built secret communities on and off line where we could quietly praise her without interference.
On Election Day, we delivered the biggest gender gap in history for her.
After she lost, we got louder.
We take up more space.
Moments like the one that happened on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (not exactly a venue I turn to for a sympathetic political ear) are frequent now. The women writers each came on, one at a time and I had no idea Fallon had so many women writers! Good for him! and penned Hillary a thank-you note, while she sat across from them.
The segment ended with Miley Cyrus coming out and beginning to cry before she hit the Hillary in Dear Hillary.
CYRUS: Thank you, Hillary, for being a constant beacon of strength, hope, and determination for me and millions of other young women. Youve been a role model and an inspiration, and a voice of reason in uncertain times. I could go on and on, but Id like to get right to the point. Can I give you a hug?
Hillarys answer? Yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes.
I live for these moments. Where women and little girls, who havent been told that they arent supposed to love Hillary Clinton get to meet her. Their joy is impossible to deny.
I tear up every time I see myself reflected in these women politely losing it just by being around her. Its a wonderful catharsis to watch one of our own deliver the message right to her. Thank you, Hillary the thing we all want to say.
Oh my oh my oh my, lol.
This literally makes me want to retch.
Why the hell wasnt there a WARNING: GRAPHIC label in your post? I watched the video and now wont be able to sleep for days!
Miley what happened to you? You where such a sweet looking child on your TV show. Now you stick out that tongue, what is that all about anyway?
Wow will not click on link....seeing Miley and pickles in the same photo would surely make me lose my lunch.
Oh fer Godsake!
Miley lost. America won.
Never expect a politician to love you back...
Miley, dont make me stop watching The Voice. One of the last decent shows on tv.
It’s hilarious! C’mon, don’t you see it? And what gender gap is she talking about? Trump won the white female vote, not Hillary.
The only thing she’s channeling is demons.
I wonder what Maria Shriver told her son when she found out he was with Miley? There was a pic of them together, her son and Miley. Miley doesn’t shave her underarms.
I need a 50 gallon barf bag.
The Cult of Kankles, what a bunch of stupid crybaby drama queens.
Why doesn’t she go play with herself?
So is this Miley’s goodbye. The world will be a better place.
Heard it on the car radio. Got very nauseous. Almost pulled over but was able to overcome though I did reach the point of sweating.
