Trump Issues Response to Taylor Swift Going Political. It’s Classic Trump.

Published

on

Over the weekend, the apolitical Taylor Swift did something that she had previously not done before. She used her massive platform as a pop music superstar to promote a political candidate she’s supporting in the November midterms.

This actually comes as a bit of a shock, because previously, Swift remained tight lipped about her politics in order to avoid alienating fans who might come from different walks of life or hold different views than her own.

Now she’s throwing her support in the ring for Phil Bredesen who is running for Senate in the state of Tennessee, urging her fans to do the same.

Monday, President Trump decided to weigh in on Swift getting political and had a little fun with it.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, Swift said she was voting for Bredesen over Republican Marsha Blackburn because her voting record “appalls and terrifies me.” In her statement, the singer painted Blackburn as anti-LGBT and anti-woman. She did not address Bredesen announcing to his fellow Democrats’ dismay that he would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh — an announcement that got him swiftly un-endorsed by MoveOn.org.

“In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,” she wrote (full post below). “I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.”

She continued: “Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives.”

Asked about her comments on the White House’s South Lawn on Monday, Trump said he believes Blackburn is “doing a very good job in Tennessee” and suspects that Swift doesn’t know much about her.

“I’m sure Taylor Swift has nothing — or doesn’t know anything about her,” he said, CNN reports.

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

Isn’t it refreshing to have a president who actually possesses a sense of humor? Despite the fact he’s clearly joking, it’s almost a guarantee that angry, rage fueled feminists will no doubt say he’s hating on Swift because she’s a woman.

That’s how politics go this day and age, right? You find something innocuous and harmless and come up with some creative way to make it a cause for offense. It’s a sad state of affairs.

There’s little doubt that Swift will lose some fans over her political rant, but that likely won’t have too much of an impact on her career. After all, the entertainment industry loves bleeding heart types.

CNN’s Don Lemon Becomes Hate Hoax Apologist Overnight

While the accusations are far, far different, this “court of public opinion” is in fact the same figurative judicial institution that condemns Brett Kavanaugh still to this day.

Don Lemon

We live in strange times, my friends, as the liberal left continues to turn toward socialism and antisemitism in some strange repeat of not a century ago.

Hate is in the air, both literally and in the sense of aura surrounding the act.  Television “news” networks, sensing an opportunity to race bait you into watching a commercial break, have been working overtime in recent days, attempting to downplay their once exuberant belief in the story of Jussie Smollett.

Smollett, an actor, has now been implicated in at least one hate crime hoax, in which police say the television star paid two on-set extras to racially harass him for his own publicity.

Smollett has been arrested on charges of filing a false report, yet CNN’s Don Lemon seems to still find the actor a victim…somehow.

During his opening monologue, Lemon told his viewers that the story was “personal” since he and Smollett had been acquaintances and were in constant communication since the alleged incident and that Smollett told Lemon what he said had happened to him, which he admitted raised lots of questions.

He stressed that while Smollett is “innocent until proven guilty,” he still “squandered the good will of a whole lot of people” if his story wasn’t true.

“He even lied to a lot of people… including me. And that’s not cool,” Lemon said to his viewers. “He squandered the good will of very high-profile people who one day may be running this country like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and people like President Trump.”

But then came a perspective that perhaps crossed the line for many viewers.

Lemon insisted that Smollett has already “lost the fight in the court of public opinion,” but he hesitated to blame him for that defeat.

While the accusations are far, far different, this “court of public opinion” is in fact the same figurative judicial institution that condemns Brett Kavanaugh still to this day.

Worse still, this puts Don Lemon squarely in the corner of a near-serial hate crime hoaxer.

Actor’s Hate Hoax Planned After Previous Propaganda Effort Was Panned

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this.

Published

Jussie Smollett

There are very, very few things in this world that are more despicable than hate crimes or hate speech, but faking one for attention is certainly on that short, short list.

That’s exactly what actor Jussie Smollett is being accused of this week after police interrogated two extras from the set of Empire, who claim that the actor paid them a significant amount of money to “attack” him, yelling racial and homophobic slurs.

Smollett’s credibility is falling apart, and police would like to have another word with the actor ASAP.

Now, evidence of Smollett’s premeditation is coming to light, and it doesn’t look good for the Fox actor.

Empire actor Jussie Smollett “concocted” a “staged attacked” against himself after receiving a racist letter addressed to him failed to evoke a “bigger reaction,” a source tells CBS 2.

“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” one source told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards, who reported “other sources corroborated that information.”

A letter contained “white powder” was delivered on January 22 to a Chicago set where Empire was filming in the days leading up to the alleged staged assault. In a statement to CNN, Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi confirmed a HAZMAT team scrambled to Cinespace Studios, where the program was being shot, after the letter was found.

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this, and Smollett’s future in the industry isn’t looking too good.
