Taylor Swift slams “autocrat” President Trump and says Americans are being “gaslighted”

Pro-abort buddies Lena Dunham and Taylor Swift

I wonder if Swift can define those two words on her own?

Taylor Swift has publicly supported demorats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper. Marsha Blackburn beat Bredesen in her senate race. Swift is also a big supporter of abortion.

From Daily Mail: Taylor Swift has strayed from her long-held policy of not talking politics by slamming President Trump as an ‘autocrat’, claiming Americans are being ‘gaslighted’ into thinking they are unpatriotic if they do not support him and saying she is ‘obviously’ pro-choice.

The singer, who is promoting her newest album Lover, also said she would do ‘everything’ she could for ‘2020’ in reference to the looming president election.

She made the comments in an interview with The Guardian which was published on Friday, a day after releasing her album to resounding praise. ‘We’re a democracy – at least, we’re supposed to be – where you’re allowed to disagree, dissent, debate. I really think that he thinks this is an autocracy.’

She went on to say of his 2016 election victory: ‘All the dirtiest tricks in the book were used and it worked,’ adding that the atmosphere in America is ‘gaslighting the American public into being like, ‘If you hate the president, you hate America.”

Swift was famously quiet about the 2016 election at the time and was heavily criticized for it by other celebrities.

She has rarely commented on her political views in the past and last year, came under fire for endorsing Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee.

Some said she had signed the end of her career by sharing her beliefs after years of staying neutral, especially when many of her fans are conservative.

But in the interview published on Friday, she said she regretted not speaking up sooner about her beliefs and that she only held her tongue to ‘protect’ her ‘mental health’.

She said she felt ‘useless’ about not speaking out about the 2016 election but said she could not handle the controversy of sharing them after a turbulent year in the headlines which involved a nasty public spat with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

She was also struggling to cope with her mother’s cancer diagnosis, she said. ‘I was just trying to protect my mental health – not read the news very much, go cast my vote, tell people to vote.

‘I just knew what I could handle and I knew what I couldn’t. I was literally about to break,’ she said.

She previously told Vogue that she would have endorsed Hillary Clinton but that she knew her speaking out ‘wouldn’t help’ because Trump was ‘weaponizing celebrity endorsements’ and her own credibility had taken a hit.

Now, she says she is ‘really remorseful for not saying anything’ about her views.

Trump was not the only political issue she weighed in on, saying she was ‘obviously pro-choice’ and was appalled by Tennessee’s decision to pass a near total-ban on abortion.

‘I just can’t believe this is happening,’ she said, pledging to do ‘everything I can for 2020’.

The publication of the interview also comes a day after her father was forced to delete his Facebook page after coming under fire for sharing what fans described were right-wing memes.

Her new album takes on social and political issues such as homophobia and the #MeToo movement.

‘American stories burning before me, I’m feeling helpless, the damsels are depressed / Boys will be boys then, where are the wise men? Darling, I’m scared,’ is one of the lyrics in one of the songs.

All Time Low: American Music Awards ratings plunge 29 percent with politically charged show

Taylor Swift trying to sway your vote…

From Fox News: The politically charged 2018 American Music Awards produced dismal viewership, setting an all-time low rating for the annual special.

According to Variety, Tuesday night’s “American Music Awards” on ABC earned a disappointing 1.8 rating among the key demo of adults age 18-49 with 6.5 million total viewers, according to the Hollywood trade publication. The total was down 25 percent compared to its 2.4 demo rating in 2017.

The show – which aired on a Tuesday as opposed to the typical Sunday — dropped approximately 29 percent in total viewers after drawing 9.2 million last year, the outlet reports.

During the low-rated show, Taylor Swift – who recently broke her longtime political silence by slamming Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn — urged fans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

“This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people,” the 28-year-old popstar said while accepting the Artist of the Year award, Swift’s third win of the night. She continued: “And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on Nov. 6. Get out and vote. I love you guys.”

Comedian Billy Eichner called the upcoming midterms “the biggest election of our lifetime” and urged viewers to vote.

“Please grab your friends. Tell them to vote. If you believe in equality for women, for people of color, for the LGBTQ community. If you believe that climate change is real and that we need to do something about it, don’t let anyone tell you your vote won’t count,” Eichner said.

On Sunday, Swift took to social media to declare her support for a pair of Democrats — Senate candidate Phil Bredesen and Rep. Jim Cooper.

“As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” she told her 112 million Instagram followers. “Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.”

Swift opened the American Music Awards with a performance and took home the coveted Artist of the Year award. Other big winners included Camila Cabello, Post Malone, Migos, Young Thug, Cardi B, Rihanna, Khalid, Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood, Bruno Mars, Kane Brown and the late XXXTentacion.
