In this late stage of the 2020 election, each candidate is vying for a late push to put them over the edge.
President Trump’s campaign team has seemingly settled on a strategy of in-person campaigning, with the Commander in Chief blitzing through a number of key battleground states on Monday.
Democratic nominee Joe Biden is also out on the trail, making three stops personally, and employing vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris and former President Barack Obama to visit other key locales.
And there there are the surrogates in the cult of celebrity, who are doing their best to sway voters as well.
But not all of these star-studded endorsements go as planned, and a bizarre bit of pandering from Lady Gaga had Twitter users cringing.

Social media users were completely dumbfounded.
I just don’t get it. Who is this supposed to appeal to?
I just realized I have a confused scowl on my face while tweeting.
Wasting beer, mixing camo, the head roll, thinking that leaning against a truck will earn you cred? I won’t even go into the boots.

The outfit, the boots, the beer, the truck… Yep! This one is going on my cringe compilation.

This is Lady Gaga trying to appeal to Middle America.

Hip hop superstar Eminem also jumped on the Biden bandwagon this week, licensing one of his hit songs to the campaign for use in an advertisement.
