Democratic presidential prospect Tom Steyer may possibly have drawn as a great deal ridicule as nearly anything else for the video of him dancing to a rap music at a campaign celebration, but at the very least he’s in good corporation.
The Bay Location billionaire had nevertheless to collect a delegate in advance of the South Carolina key and was polling close to 2% nationally at press time. Benefits from South Carolina put him in 3rd position there, with about 11% of the vote, and Steyer dropped out of the race Saturday night.
But Friday night at a rally at traditionally black Allen College in Columbia, hopes however superior, Steyer was joined onstage by Juvenile for a rendition of the rapper’s 1999 hit, “Back That Azz Up.” Although the prospect did wield a mic, he mainly left the verses to the pro (Steyer’s wife and daughter served as backup dancers). Footage of the spectacle was out of the blue just about everywhere, in tweets, retweets, social media and information stories.
The jokes at the candidate’s expenditure flew. Although there was no Eminem-design and style struggle-rap beatdown, Steyer may possibly have experienced some bruises.
Some predicted (jokingly) that the stunt would radically shift Steyer’s fortunes.
1 Twitter wag created an account simply to dub in a variety of music decisions to Steyer’s moves. In this article, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Cut to the Feeling” gets the honors:
Even James Woods, a Trump supporter and well known conservative voice in Hollywood, chimed in.
I woke up with back again agony this early morning and imagined absolutely nothing would heal it. Oddly more than enough this video of Tom Steyer in a tie, disco overbite and all, “getting down” with Juvenile in his pointless bid for the presidency took the agony away. It was a miracle. #MakeItStopDearLord https://t.co/58j7Rv5ay4

These moves would not increase the roof of a doll dwelling.

Allow him have his entertaining. I’m a Biden supporter, but this Steyer dance makes for good enjoyment. Reminds me of G.W. who wowed us with his dancing prowess. 😂But in a G.W. vs Steyer dance competition, Steyer wins. Full quit. https://t.co/bYWz21Jb5P
