Elle Varner: ‘I’m An Avid Obama Supporter’


Washington — R&B singer Elle Varner is behind her president all the way.

“Yes I’m an avid Obama supporter,” Varner told Politic365.

On Sunday night, the 23-year-old “Refill” singer attended the “2013 The Dream Moving Forward Inaugural Gala” at the Howard Theatre to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration.

Politic365 interviewed Varner on the red carpet before she performed her hit single “Refill” on stage.

Besides being an “avid Obama supporter,” Varner says that President Obama is someone she can trust.

“He’s really a person for the people I like to call him and I’m just supporting him all the way,” Varner said. “Whatever he does I trust him.”

Varner declined to comment on the president’s accomplishments or anything she might possibly be critical of.

“You know, I don’t really like to get in to all of that and go too deep into it,” she said.

Back in September, during the Democratic National Convention, First Lady Michelle Obama told E!News that the Obama’s eldest daughter, Malia Obama, was “all on top of her [Varner].”

Varner thanked the First Lady through Twitter.


Politic365: “Are you an Obama supporter and was President Obama’s first term everything you expected it to be?”

Elle Varner: “Yes I’m an avid Obama supporter. I think that you know, as we all know he came in at a very difficult time and he’s doing the absolute best that he can and he really is such a fair and thoughtful person. He’s really a person for the people I like to call him and I’m just supporting him all the way. Whatever he does I trust him.”

Politic365: “What are some of the things he’s accomplished in your view and are there any areas that you’re critical of him?”

Varner: “You know, I don’t really like to get in to all of that and go too deep into it. So I’m just going to leave it there.”

Politic365: “All right. Thanks a lot.”

Varner: “Thank You.”
