After a week filled with screaming men, triggering sexual assault stories, and insufferable proclamations from the Oval Office, we could all use a Christina Aguilera concert. So on Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Huma Abedin did just that. The trio showed up at Radio City Music Hall Wednesday night for a night of antics with Aguilera, a longtime fan who hosted a private gig back in 2015 to raise campaign money for Hillary's presidential run. The best part? Abedin wore a Lingua Franca "November is Coming" sweater over a crisp white shirt. Because who doesn't need a reminder of that right now?
The Clintons arrived separately from Abedin, who was photographed entering the concert venue with a somewhat grim expression—I feel you, Huma—and a crystal-clear message on her Lingua Franca sweater. (The top was apparently custom-made, since no style with that tagline is available for us masses.) Abedin paired the sweater with a long, belted black skirt and scuffed white sneakers.
Twitter user Chris Evans was also at the concert, tweeting: "OMG YOU GUYS HILLARY IS HERE AT THE CHRISTINA CONCERT" along with photos and footage of the Clintons. "Omg Huma is with them," he wrote shortly afterwards. And, a little later: "I looked back and saw Hillary boppin her wig to Fighter."
Hillary Clinton is in the audience for Christina Aguilera, so yes, I can cross “dancing to Dirrty with a Secretary of State” off my bucket list. #LiberationTourOctober 4, 2018
