Donald Trump had a thing or two to say about the NFL darling Taylor Swift, taking to social media ahead of Super Bowl LVIII to comment on a possible endorsement of President Joe Biden — the pop diva backed the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.
The former president paid Swift’s boyfriend and COVID-19 vaccine peddler Travis Kelce a backhanded compliment in a Truth Social that had Swifties weeping and gnashing their teeth.
“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists.” Trump wrote. “Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will. There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money. Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”
Speaking of Swift and Kelce, both managed to put their best foot forward Sunday on perhaps the biggest stage in the world.
After jetting back to the States from a concert date in Japan, Swift was seen slamming a beer in front of millions of impressionable young fans watching the game.
“Icon,” the league said in proudly endorsing the moment:

But that was tame compared to a moment early in the game when the Chiefs were trailing. Kelce assaulted head coach Andy Reid, seemingly upset that he was not getting every snap. The moment of violent rage was quickly swept under the rug and forgotten as the Chiefs went on to win the game — the CBS analyst crew laughed the ugly incident off after the game and Reid said that Swift’s boyfriend is just an emotional guy and assured all that he’s not a selfish guy.
Travis Kelce should be ASHAMED of himself for assaulting Andy Reid like this on NATIONAL TV.
He is a grown man. SHOW SOME RESPECT…

As for the fallout, here’s a snippet from the New York Times: “Extending a weekslong right-wing meltdown over Taylor Swift’s political preferences, former President Donald J. Trump declared on Sunday that it would be ‘disloyal’ for Ms. Swift to endorse President Biden for re-election, given that Mr. Trump signed legislation that made it easier for artists to collect royalties when their songs are streamed.”
The Washington Post also pushed the “far-right” conspiracy of a “government psyop to thwart Donald Trump’s election.”
In reality, there’s a reason Democrats like Hillary Clinton rushed online to celebrate the Chief’s winning the game: “Congratulations to Taylor’s boyfriend—and the entire Kansas City Chiefs community! ”
Here’s a quick sampling of the reaction to Trump’s remarks from Kool-Aid drinking liberals:
Trump takes credit for Taylor Swift’s success. There has never been a more petty, insecure, small man in the history of American politics. Everywhere he looks he sees himself as a victim. pic.twitter.com/NC69RBcSWH

Taking undeserved credit for her enormous success is classic (and heinous), but this reads as if he’s stone cold terrified of her and her power and realizes — after a lifetime of terrorizing women — that this is the one who can actually end him. Even her boyfriend frightens him. pic.twitter.com/R538P284Bv
