Right wingnut Charlie Kirk melts down after Taylor Swift endorses Democrats in a lengthy Instagram post warning her to “stay away from politics” and “your career never recovered since Kanye West ended it” (he didn’t). Another rightwing nut said Swift was “one step above a prostitute.”
“Look Taylor Swift, I love your music. Personally, Kanye West, I’m a bigger fan of his,” Kirk said. I wish you would have not done this. Stay away from politics,” he warned. Nothing like a white man mansplaining to a woman, right?
Swift entered the political fray saying she broke her silence because she didn’t like what she has seen over the last two years. “I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent,” she wrote in her post.
Swift publicly announced she was backing Tennessee Democratic candidates Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. She said she was appalled by Trump-backed Marsha Blackburn’s stance on many issues, including gay marriage.
“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,” Swift continued.
Swift slammed Marsha Blackburn saying “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.”

Hey @taylorswift13 –
You just endorsed a Democrat in the Tennessee senate race with a ridiculous statement saying Marsha Blackburn, a woman, is against women
You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about
Your career has never recovered since Kanye ended it

Taylor Swift told the world she’s voting Democrat.
Anyone else sick of entertainers who think they have some sort of “enlightened” influence in our election process?
Taylor, you use sex to sell your shitty music. You’re a step above a prostitute. Who cares how you’re voting?

So, over the weekend Taylor Swift announced that she doesn’t support women and endorsed a rich old white privileged man who supported the Kavanaugh SCOTUS confirmation instead? Weird and extremely tone deaf. #irony Please don’t shave your head next 🙏 #twilightzone 🤷🏽♀️
