Liberals hobbies include being angry and getting offended.
They can’t wait to find the next un-PC thing to be irate about. Which is basically everything.
And what superstar Taylor Swift had to say really sent them through the roof.
Liberals have been crying about how awful the year 2017 has been.
Of course, it’s all because of Trump.
It certainly has nothing to do with the widespread sexual misconduct scandals that have spawned the #MeToo movement, is ousting Hollywood heavyweights at record speed, and as sparked a citywide investigation from the Los Angeles Police Department.
It’s all too much and the liberals just can’t even right now.
And this couldn’t have been more obvious than when Taylor Swift took to Instagram to thank her fans for her amazing year and the left completely lost it.
“Pop star Taylor Swift apparently struck a nerve with leftists and Internet trolls this week after she said she “couldn’t have asked for a better year” in 2017 and thanked her fans in a birthday Instagram post.
Of course, Swift likely had a lot in her life to be thankful for this year.
Her latest album, reputation, immediately went to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and became the best-selling album of the year, even if it wasn’t as popular as her smash hit album 1989. For her tour this year, she’s trying a new “slow ticketing” method that is bound to gross her far more money and ensure that scalpers stay away from her shows, and the music industry will likely follow her lead.
Swift also won her sexual assault counter-suit against a DJ she had accused of groping her, and was featured on Time magazine’s Person of the Year cover. And she also has a new boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, a 26-year-old British actor who will reportedly join her on tour next year.
But all of this good stuff was just too much for New York Magazine‘s The Cut, which proclaimed: “A Straight, White Multi-Millionaire Pop Star Had a Great 2017.”
The article claimed Swift couldn’t have possibly enjoyed the year, because Trump was elected president, there was a horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas, wildfires have torched Southern California, and sexual assault allegations have swept media, politics, and entertainment.
“And that’s just to name a few!” the author wrote. “But anyway, congrats to the now 28-year-old Taylor Swift for being the only person to enjoy 2017.”
But here are at least a couple of Twitter users defending Swift’s post and her undeniably great year:
Maybe Taylor Swift had the best year of her life b/c she won a sexual assault case in court, released an album that broke records, & is in love. Maybe it’s because last year everyone said she was “Over” & instead She rose out of the hate like a Phoenix.

So basically when the liberals aren’t happy, no one is happy.
