Trump accuses Taylor Swift of being 'disloyal' if she endorses Biden

Donald Trump, who attempted to overturn the democratic vote of the American people in 2020, on Sunday accused the pop star Taylor Swift of being “disloyal” should she endorse Joe Biden for president.

With the rightwing conspiracy theory machine fretting that Swift is a Pentagon plant whose relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, and his team’s victory yesterday in the Superbowl, was designed to give Swift a platform to swing the election for Biden, Trump weighed in with his own thoughts.

He said there was “no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden” and would never be “disloyal to to the man who made her so much money”.Trump said Swift and other artists benefited from the Music Modernization Act, which helped performing artists more easily earn royalties and licensing fees through music streaming services, and which was passed during his presidency.

Swift endorsed Biden in the 2020 race, though she has yet to support anyone publicly in the latest campaign. A recent Instagram post in which she encouraged her supporters to vote reportedly saw more than 35,000 voter registrations. Trump said Biden “didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will” and said that he liked Kelce “even though he may be a liberal, and probably can’t stand me”. Kelce attracted rightwing ire for once appearing in a campaign to encourage people to get the Covid vaccine.

He either buys or threatens people to obtain "loyalty."

In his mind if he ever helped people make money, he owns them.
And if those people don't understand this concept, he will destroy them.

So it is quite typical of Trump to make these kind of comments.
These are the comments from a ruthless sociopath.

because she can turnout millions of young voters.

This isn't about music it is about votes.

Trump wants death threats hurled at Taylor.

She's an attractive young woman who doesn't have to sleep with disgusting old white, pudgy "powerful" Dipshits like Donnie Sick Fuck to further her career.

She doesn't need the likes of him, and that pisses them off more than anything, including the disgusting suburban women that support him.

This isn't 1950 anymore. Women have options.

They HATE that.

Trump is a serious narcissist, so anyone who makes a negative comment about him, he takes it quite personally. He simply cannot understand why people don't love and adore him. So he will get revenge on an emotional level, trying to destroy those who don't display the correct loyalty and adoration.

Yes of course Trump is also a ruthless sociopath and he is desperate to get into the WH by any means possible.
And yes of course he will put people in danger and even get them killed to get what he wants.

TS is a threat to Trump's goal of being installed into the White House.

And we know what Trump does to people who get in the way of his goals. You can ask Mike Pence.

All she has to do is snap her fingers and young voters who make up her fan base will register to vote and vote for Democrats. Because their futures are HER concern.

I doubt TSF realizes just how much influence and power she has. For she endorsed Biden in 2020.

Assume for a moment he’s right and the law did put money in her pocket. He’s incapable of see that she might be concerned about more than that…things like women’s health, voting rights, gay rights, social services…all the stuff he wants to gut.

I’m not a swiftie. I went to the concert with Mrs CincyDem. Great show. Recognized 1, maybe 2 songs and didn’t know they were hers.

BUT…she seems like she a smart lady who isn’t gonna fall for Trump’s bullshit. He’s irrelevant to her and I think him drawing her into the race like this is going to be good for Joe.

However, Dina LaPolt, a key attorney behind the MMA, disputed Trump’s claims in a statement to Variety on Sunday.

“This [claim] is funny to me,” she wrote. “Trump did nothing on our legislation except sign it, and doesn’t even know what the Music Modernization Act does. Someone should ask him what the bill actually accomplished.”

Even through the fog of his diminishing perception, Trump probably realizes the diffrence between spending time with Taylor Swift and spending time with Ted Nugent.

He reminds me of the New York Magazine ad on NYC buses during Giuliani's Reign of Terror: “Possibly the only good thing in New York that Rudy hasn't taken credit for.” Even before 9/11, Rudy ran up to the podium to take credit for everything that benefitted the City. TFG following Rudy's pathetic lead.

She won't endorse you because you want to be a dictator.

And anyway,Taylor is making way more by touring than she can by streaming.
