Before waging a holy war against Taylor Swift, Donald Trump is trying to make peace.
In as Donald Trumpian a way as possible.
As you may have heard, Swift is probably the most beloved human being on the planet right now, thanks to a record-breaking tour and even a Super Bowl win.
As you may have heard, members of the Republican Party are horrified that Swift is going to support Joe Biden for president later this year.
We previously reported how upset Trump is about this potential endorsement.
And now the real estate mogul himself is making everyone aware of his fears and his concerns.
Just before the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Trump shared a lengthy message on Truth Social.
“I signed the Music Modernization Act and was responsible for Taylor Swift and all other music artists,” the aspiring commander-in-chief wrote on the forum.
“Joe Biden did nothing for Taylor, and never will.”
For some quick reference:
The Music Modernization Act updated copyright law to better adapt royalty and licensing payments to the age of music streaming.
This was a strong bipartisan effort that was unanimously supported by both the House and Senate.
Dina LaPolt, a lawyer who worked on the law, told Variety this week:
“Trump did nothing but sign our law, and he doesn’t even know what the Music Modernization Act does. Someone should ask him what the bill actually achieved.”
Wait, Donald Trump doesn’t understand how government works? And/or did he just tell a big lie to the public?
We. Are. Stunned.
In this desperate appeal for attention to affection, Trump concluded:
“there’s no way [Swift] She can support the worst and most corrupt president in our country’s history, crooked Joe Biden, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money.
“Plus, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he’s a liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”
In 2020, Taylor Swift endorsed Joe Biden.
Despite all the talk about how she is some kind of government property and how the NFL worked with the White House to rig the Super Bowl (claims actually made by some individuals), the singer has never specifically Has not been politically active.
He has occasionally encouraged his fans to go out and vote, which we’re sure is part of what it means to live in a democracy.
However, Trump fears that these Swifties will vote for Biden instead of him this November.
It is also worth analyzing how Donald Trump thinks here, how he thinks that life is completely transactional and that Swift should only support someone who Did Something for him.
Perhaps he simply agrees with Joe Biden’s ideas and policies?
Maybe she is not thinking about herself but about others? An example of how vocal Swift has been about reproductive freedom… which Biden has fought for, and Trump claims to destroy?
It’s a crazy notion, we know.
But Taylor Swift is coming out with a new album.
This is the most generous thing anyone has done for America in years. We are talking about a selfless person here.
