The cult of celebrity has long been aiming their ire at President Donald Trump, and there is not a single crisis to be wasted in this endeavor.
This week was no exception, as the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police sent the nation into a fit of rage. How could it be that in 2020, nearly six decades after the Civil Rights Movement, we would be again battling the scourge of racism? This isn’t the America that we were promised, and we know now that we must fight to reinforce the words of our Founding Fathers: All are created equal.
Yet some still wish to politicize the fight, and it will come as no surprise how this hijacking of the issue has arrived.
Pop super star and left-wing activist Taylor Swift erupted on President Donald Trump in a wild Twitter rant, accusing him of “stoking the fires of white supremacy” and warning “we will vote you out in November.”
“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’???” Taylor Swift shrieked to her 86 million Twitter followers, alluding to President Trump’s remarks late Thursday where he lashed out at Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey for failing to keep the people and their property safe from looters and rioters ravaging the city in the wake of George Floyd’s police-involved death.
Swift then made a bold claim before plugging her upcoming releases like a consummate professional.
“We will vote you out in November,” said Swift, who, speaking of stoking fires, said in January that she hopes her music would “stoke some fires politically.” A search of Taylor Swift’s social media did not turn up the pop star mentioning George Floyd.
President Trump has been a frequent target of Taylor Swift’s ire as of late, and it’s doubtful that this will change anytime soon.
