Taylor Swift to Trump: After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency,

you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump"


Tweeted about 45 minutes ago, and reaching her 86 million followers - and with nearly a quarter million Likes already, and over 70,000 retweets:








Editing to add that several minutes later, her tweet now has over 280,000 Likes and over 80,000 retweets. More than the first half of the violent Trump twitter message, the half that didn't get censored by Twitter, and in less than 1/12 the time, since Trump's idiocy about sending in the National Guard was tweeted over 11 hours ago.

Editing again just a couple minutes later, and her tweet is up to 300,000 Likes and over 100,000 retweets.

9. I do kinda like that "calm down" song

Though I wouldn't have given it a second listen we're it not for the politics of it. It gets a little catchy eventually

Maybe this election will be different - one hopes.

45. That seems unlikely

She's been around for ~15 years now, a big chunk of her fanbase is in the 20-30 range.

48. They've moved on...

and have been replaced by a younger fan base. I base this conclusion solely on my 7 year old grand-daughter and her friends on Zoom.

49. Does the seven year old follow Swift on Twitter?

The article says that 86 million people follow Swift on Twitter. That's a large fan base, and I assume most of them are adults. Maybe I'm wrong.

Edit: 86 million followers

her own phone yet, and I'm sincerely hoping my daughter and S.I.L. keep one of those out of her hands as long as humanly possible.

I think there are a lot of young women who still do.

46. That little bit of Republican hypocrisy drives me nuts.

They're the side that elected Reagan, Trump and Schwarzenegger to high office, but it's the liberal entertainers that need to "stick to showbiz."

13. I like anything that is against this treason loving jackass: Death Count Donnie?



He will be remembered mostly for the hair and makeup no matter how many times ridiculed or teased about it, still stuck to it, kind of like this long con?

I await his sudden horrific illness diagnosis!

I await his next inexcusable fuck-up?

We await his mug shots and everything after that moment?

53. As a roots country fan I've never liked her music.

Haven’t hated it because I realize there is a place for Pop music. Never thought about her much because in my mind she is always 17 years old.

Obviously she is not and I’m impressed with her politics

Still won’t like her music. But she has to know that will cost her fans. I guess she doesn’t care.

Good for her.
