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.

Good News! Miley Cyrus Promises Not To Procreate Until Climate Change Is Solved

This woman’s brain is a bag of cats.

Published

One of the main problems with modern society is that all the stupid people in our culture continue to breed and then indoctrinate their children with their horrific, morally bankrupt worldview. Fortunately for all of us, actress and pop star Miley Cyrus has decided to forego procreating until someone finally steps up to the plate and does something to bring the crisis of climate change to an end. This is probably her best contribution to society at this point. via TheBlaze: In a recent interview with Elle, the former “Hannah Montana” actress said that she wants to wait to have children until said children could “live on an earth with fish in the water.” In addition to climate change and parenting, she also touched upon feminism and marriage. “When [Mother Earth] is angry, don’t f*** with her,” Cyrus warned. “That’s the way I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she insisted. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece of s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she added. Cyrus later went on to detail her marriage with Hemsworth. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” she reasoned. “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in…

Pop ‘Has Been’ Cher Melts Down, Claiming Trump will Put Gays ‘In Internment Camps’

Cher is at it again with another wholly unhinged tweet attacking President Donald Trump and his supporters

Cher is at it again with another wholly unhinged tweet attacking President Donald Trump and his supporters, this time with a new conspiracy theory insisting that Trump intends to put gay people in “internment camps” if he is-re-elected. The Half Breed singer’s tweet was in reaction to a BuzzFeed story reporting that Donald Trump has become the first U.S. president to recognize LGBTQ Pride month. But Cher was incensed by the president’s recognition of the month and hyperbolically accused Trump of looking to put gays in “internment camps.” “Trump’s 1st Republican Pres.2 Acknowledge LGBT Pride Month. IF trump WINS 2020,HE’LL BE 1ST 2 STRIP U OF’ALL’PROTECTIONS,& PUT U IN INTERNMENT CAMPS‼️HE’LL PUT HIS✋🏻ON UR SHOULDER & STICK HIS🔪IN UR BACK.🙏🏻WAKE UP & SMELL PAIN,HIS BASE WANTS U GONE,” Cher screamed on her Twitter account. https://twitter.com/cher/status/1134683265921478656 The BuzzFeed story came on the heels of a Friday announcement by the White House recognizing LGBT Pride Month. “As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation,” the White House statement read, “let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!” While Cher may have become still more unhinged due to her Trump Derangement Syndrome, a former leader of the GOP gay group, the Log Cabin Republicans, was enthused by the administration’s support. “Been waiting all my life for a Republican to show this kind of leadership,” Gregory T. Angelo, former president of the Log Cabin Republicans, tweeted on Friday. “THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP!”…
