Eminem lends hand to Biden with 'Lose Yourself' campaign ad
Eminem signaled support for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden this week by allowing Biden's campaign to use his hit single "Lose Yourself" in a new advertisement. The 45-second ad, filmed in black and white, shows people standing in line to vote wearing masks while the lyrics to the rapper's hit song play.
Eminem has been famously protective of the license rights and royalties to his music, successfully suing a political campaign in New Zealand in 2017 after it used to same song in promotional materiel.
Eminem has been an outspoken critic of President Trump, blasting him in a taped freestyle rap during the BET Hip Hop Awards two years ago.
Biden has picked up several celebrity endorsements along the campaign trail, including singer and songwriter Beyonce Knowles, who implored voters in her home state of Texas to vote Trump out of office by sporting a Biden-Harris mask.
The Trump campaign has been sued by several musicians for playing their songs at rallies and other events this year.
Joe Biden is projected to win the 2020 presidential election, defeating Donald Trump in a nail-biter of a race sure to remain contentious given the country’s bitter partisan divide and the president’s reckless and unfounded claims voter fraud. Major news networks projected that Biden, a former Delaware senator and vice president during Barack Obama’s administration, would win Pennsylvania, pushing him over the 270 electoral-vote threshold. Counting continues in several states, where Biden is leading or expected to win.
It wasn’t pretty. To use a sports analogy: it was winning ugly. Especially when the projected loser racked up some 70 million votes. But Donald Trump’s botched plays and self-inflicted sacks throughout the year—along with Joe Biden’s steady hand and his and Kamala Harris’s appeal to an array of constituencies—contributed, cumulatively, to the Democrat’s winning margin in the key battleground states. No amount of working the refs (or Hail Marys to come) will change the final score.
Deutsche Bank is aiming to end any financial ties to President Trump after the United States elections due to negative attention the bank has received as a result of the relationship, Reuters reported Tuesday.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is leading in most national and state-level polls one day before Election Day, leaving his supporters cautiously optimistic as they near the finish line. Polling shows Biden with leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — three states that contributed to President Trump’s unexpected victory in 2016. The former vice president is also making inroads in other battlegrounds like Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Ohio and Georgia. The FiveThirtyEight forecasting model gives Biden a 90-percent chance of winning the election.
