While most people (myself included) would be content with getting a free Olive Garden dessert on their birthday, there are certain political candidates who get to take it up a notch. While attending an Adele concert in Miami on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton got the best birthday present a presidential hopeful could ask for: a resounding endorsement from the pop star herself.


On the eve of Clinton’s 69th birthday, Adele took a moment in between songs to comment on this unusual election season, saying it is “hard work” to be an American these days. She encouraged the audience not to vote for Donald Trump, telling the crowd, “I’ve got to be honest with you, I’m really glad I’m not an American at the moment, it’s hard work. I wouldn’t know what to do, I mean I do know what to do—don't vote for him, that's all I'm saying.” She then tacked on her official endorsement, saying in no uncertain words, “I support Hillary Clinton 100 percent. I do. And for anyone else that wants to vote for him, I don't care, good for you, do whatever you want. I'm just letting you know who I would vote for.”

Funnily enough, Adele did not realize at the time of her endorsement that Hillary Clinton was standing in the audience. Though she wasn’t the only celebrity to wish the Democratic nominee a happy birthday. James Franco, with some help from WomenVOTEProject, released a video on Wednesday titled “Introducing The Most Interesting Woman In The World,” endorsing Clinton in a way only James Franco could. It’s hilarious, informative, and downright sexy.

In addition to Adele and James Franco, Hillary Clinton also got shout-outs from NARAL, actress Zoe Kazan, actor Rob Reiner, and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. This motley crew of well-wishers may just outshine a bottomless tub of breadsticks.

The theme of the event was climate change, but Trump chose to use his 30 minutes of speaking time to brag about the "spectacular" U.S. economy and encouraged world leaders to invest in America.

He didn't mention climate change once.
