Senate Democrats Tried to Relate to Chappell Roan, And It Did Not Go Well

Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 2 MIN.

The Senate Democrats aren't just representatives of the legislative body that holds the future of our democracy in the balance; they are cool.

At least, that is what they would lead you to believe judging by an ill-received tweet in which the X account for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee quoted a Chappell Roan song with hopes of inspiring people to get out and vote.

However, the only thing it seems to have done is remind people how cringe-inducing the leaders of our country really are, reported the Daily Beast.

In a play off of Roan's hit "HOT TO GO!" single last year, the account tweeted "H-O-T-T-O-V-O-T-E!"

X users quickly descended on the tweet, pointing out the hypocrisy of using an artist who identifies as a lesbian to support leaders that treat LGBTQ+ rights as second class.

"As if this isn't embarrassing enough, it doesn't even go with the music," wrote one X user.

"We're doomed" wrote another.

And then there were memes. Lots of memes.

"Your post made me finally understand the feelings in this meme," shared another X user with a photo of a kid screaming to the heavens.

"We live in hell" added another user.

The vibe was clear: People are not in the mood to play cute after the Supreme Court's presidential immunity decision.

Not to mention that Roan shared that she was invited to perform at the White House, but, she told an audience at the Governors Ball Music Festival, she turned down the opportunity because she wants "liberty, justice and freedom for all."

She added, "When [they] do that, that's when I'll come."

And we absolutely stan a queen who stands on her morals. See Roan talk about oppression around the world during that same set at the Governors Ball below.
