EARLIER // SEPTEMBER 27:
Mary J Blige and Hillary Clinton sit down for a chat on Blige’s Beats 1 Show “The 411.”
At least I think it’s a chat, but judging from the one-minute preview Apple posted, it’s hard to tell. Blige sings about police brutality to Clinton, who sits there with a concerned, stoic look on her face but never utters a word in the promo (which they dub will be an “intimate conversation”). Even when Blige asks: “I just wanna know… where do we go from here,” Clinton is shown looking unsure, a huge contrast to the confidence she exuded during last night’s presidential debate.
Notable lyrics in the song include: “Always be polite and never ever run away / Promise mama you’ll keep your hands inside / Is it a gun? Is it a knife? Is it a wallet? This is your life / It ain’t no secret / You can get killed for living in your American skin.”

Real question: was this edited by Trump’s team?
