New right wing political conspiracy: Taylor Swift is interfering in the US presidential election

Taylor Swift has generally been doing a good job staying away from politics, not wanting to divide her fanbase into Reds and Blues. Not overtly, anyway. But right wing MAGA wingnuts see something nefarious going on. They see something suspicious in Tay-Tay being named Time’s Person of the Year.

First, these MAGA-ites can’t understand how Tay-Tay beat out Vladimir Putin, Xi Jingping, King Charles, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and, er, Barbie. Picking Taylor has them speculating that this is all part of a plot to take down Donald Trump. No, really.

One tweet from the social media account @EndWokeness said this: “Taylor Swift has a cult-like following that would drink poisoned Kool Aid for her. The media knows this and is feeding it. Music. Entertainment. Sports. Now they crowned her Person of the Year…The next step? Politics. If you don’t think the regime has plans to weaponize her just in time for 2024, you clearly have not been paying attention.”

Wow. The weaponization of Taylor Swift.

Laura Loomer, another MAGA-ite tweeted this: “What would the Democrats do without their idol who runs through men like water and spews anti-Trump drivel every chance she gets? Her entire world tour has become a Democrat Party Voter Registration drive.”

What these people are worried about are the Swifties. If she were to tell them how she was going to vote, then millions would go right long with her. Or so the theory goes. Hardcore republicans say they need to counteract this mighty force.

Hey, don’t you already have Ted Nugent? And Kid Rock? And Aaron Lewis? And Wayne Newton, Aaron Carter, Lil Wayne, Gene Simmons, and 50 Cent?
