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.

Springsteen Disallows Fans Who’ve Had Certain COVID-19 Vaccines

Soon we’ll be queuing up by batch numbers…

Published

on

As the world races to reopen, there are some longstanding concerns that those who’ve chosen not to be vaccinated could wind end living their lives as second-class citizens. We’re already seeing a number of major industries treat Americans differently based on their choices in regard to bodily sovereignty.  Baseball parks are talking about having unvaccinated “sections”, for instance, and the cruise industry is already looking to break the law in Florida by requiring proof of inoculation to ride. Now things are getting even more segregated and specific, as Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show will not allow guests who’ve had a specific brand of COVID-19 vaccine. Rabid rock fans looking to celebrate a return to normalcy by taking in Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show later this month will be on the outside looking in if they’ve received the AstraZeneca vaccine, which hasn’t yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. The show at the St. James Theatre, set to run June 26 through Sept. 4, has a lengthy Q&A page detailing the vaccination protocols in place — including a mandate that all guests must be fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved shot to get in. Guests will meet that criteria if they’ve received a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccine at least 14 days earlier, or that same span with a Johnson & Johnson jab prior to the Boss’s latest Broadway run. “At the direction of New York State, Springsteen on Broadway and the St. James Theatre will only be accepting proof of FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson),” the website reads. There is but one exception: The lone exceptions to the vaccine policy will be for children under the age of 16 who have had a negative antigen COVID-19 screening six hours prior to the show, or…

Chris Cuomo Gets Roasted on Twitter After Asking for Examples of His ‘Bias’

Chris Cuomo’s backside is likely a little tender after that.

Published

With Americans’ faith in the mainstream media continuing to falter in recent years, it appears as though some within that ecosystem are growing desperate. The nation is beginning to learn their tricks.  We know all about their sensationalism’s dopamine-inducing addiction, and how they ride this wave of fear and emotion into ever-larger paychecks. It’s not so much the news as a brain-chemical feeding frenzy interrupted every few minutes by some ad for car insurance.  The funny thing is that the pundits themselves are still attempting to keep up appearances, and pretend as though their programs aren’t the gluttonous chaos-porn that they are. Chris Cuomo, of CNN fame, seemed to challenge Twitter to find instances of bias in his work this week, in the sort of “jump the shark” moment that often predates the imminent end of someone’s career. Twitter did not disappoint. https://twitter.com/ChrisCuomo/status/1405513427192356869?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1405513427192356869%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F https://twitter.com/ArthurSchwartz/status/1405722621669433347?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1405722621669433347%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1405524870864150542?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1405524870864150542%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F https://twitter.com/karol/status/1405532964461547523?s=20 https://twitter.com/NewsPolitics/status/1395427627431866369?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1395427627431866369%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F There is little deniability of bias when you’re actively working with a Democratic governor and using you media connections in the process.
