Taylor Swift is one of the biggest pop stars in the entire world.
The ten-time Grammy award winner has always shied away from politics even when she was asked to condemn President Trump. She didn’t do that.
But in the last week, she got political and her fans were furious that she did just that.
Taylor Swift just endorsed Democratic Senatorial hopeful Phil Bredesen over Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn this week.

That’s one thing that her fans always loved about her.
She refused to infuse politics into her music and her celebrity status.
That has all changed now.
When she endorsed the Democratic candidate in her home state of Tennessee, her fans let her have it.
They literally turned her off.
Swift headlined the American Music Awards on Tuesday night and they were the worst ratings that the show has ever had.
The Wrap reported that it was, “a new record low in TV ratings.”
Swift opened the performance and then she ended up winning the“Artist of the Year.”
She said, “This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people, and you know what else is voted on by the people? It is the midterm elections on November 6. Get out and vote. I love you guys.”
That shouldn’t come off as a surprise.
For the first time in her career, she got political last week.
The pop star singer endorsed Phil Bredesen in her home state of Tennessee.
Swift called out her political ideologies on Instagram.
She wrote, “I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.”
Swift seemed so sweet and apolitical for a long time.
That’s not the case anymore.
The biggest pop star singer in the entire world rallied her liberal base to go out and vote against Republicans.
Ironically, Swift’s base is largely Republican based.

That’s why it was a surprise to hear those words come from her mouth.
A lot of people thought she was a Republican before this political outburst.
Swift loves Democrats apparently.
When she came out against Blackburn, the voting registration went through the roof.
Some liberals follow her anywhere.
That’s exactly what she wants.
The pop singer wants her political post to reach as many of her fans as possible because she’s a leftist.
This shouldn’t be hard to grasp.
Think about it.
Swift “conveniently” wanted to embarrass conservative politics because they hate President Trump so much.
Swift’s one of the most popular singers in the world.
She just alienated a lot of her followers because of this anti-Trump act.
Trump even said that he was a “25-percent” less fan of hers after these ridiculous accusations.
