Taylor Swift Is Going to Have to Kick Donald Trump Out of Her Squad After She Endorsed Democrats

It turns out Taylor Swift and Donald Trump don’t like each other much, which is surprising because they’re both the fucking worst. The two were put at odds over Taylor Swift’s decision to stop being apolitical and take a political stance on something.

Hilariously, at least to me, Swift’s refusal to comment on politics ended with her coming out and endorsing two of the worst Democrats in the country. She wants people to vote for a Senate candidate who, as governor, kicked 100,000 people off of Medicaid and wrote a book about how Obamacare was terrible and we should create some arcane system of vouchers in order to preserve corporate profits in health care instead of just having single payer like every other industrialized country in the world. She also voiced her support for incumbent congressperson Rep. Jim Cooper, one of the only Democrats to vote against the Americans With Disabilities Act and was a co-sponsor of the massively unpopular Stop Online Piracy Act which would have massively curtailed the ability of anyone to use the Internet for anything in the interest of putting slightly more money into the pockets of big movie studios.

Of course, when Donald Trump heard about this, he couldn’t let it pass without commenting on it.

After being told Swift announced her opposition to Blackburn and endorsed Bredesen, Trump offered quick praise for Blackburn, who he said “is doing a very good job in Tennessee.”

And then he served Swift with a diss.

“I’m sure Taylor Swift has nothing — or doesn’t know anything about her (Blackburn),” Trump said.

And then he added, with a laugh: “Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25% less now, OK?”

That’s awfully specific. But Donald Trump wasn’t the only person with hilariously stupid opinions on Taylor Swift endorsing a couple of right-wing, neoliberal Democrats.

This little gem needs some unpacking, starting with the ratio of over 10 times as many comments as likes. None of them are giving Jerry a thumbs up. What I want to know is how he has a daughter young enough that he can take her things from her but who actually owns CDs.

Then there was this tweet of the year nominee from Mike Huckabee, father of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Huckabee took a break from his normal act of making the worst, least funny political dad jokes of anyone in the world to just try giving be straight-up wrong a chance, because Swift’s Instagram post caused a huge spike in voter registration, according to vote.org.

So I guess Taylor Swift isn’t a Nazi after all, she’s just a Kanye West-level thinker who supports politicians that will prevent her money from going to help poor people while paying lip service to a few social issues she cares about.
