  1. The 25% he doesn't like about her anymore is probably just her music. He still wants to do her like he does his daughter. No surprise there.

  2. Boo 👎👎 👎 fuck the democrats and he dum ass that that on news all he is one bad democrats all he stay for black live matter that's racist just like kkk

  3. no magic here, dumb always magnetically attached to evil that pretends to be the one for people, We have so many dumb kanye and others in our country

  4. Im taytay fan but im upset ….she doesnt say her political views until it benefits from it or sth happens to her like female molestation she didnt talk until she was bullied by her producer …also in muslim ban…thats why taylor makes me upset in some things although im fan!!?

  5. don't @ me. I don't really like Taylor Swift's music, but she's an amazing person, political or not.

  6. It is, and may perhaps continue to be Cohen (TN) vs Cohen (former criminal business associate of current US President). I can only hope, that if the young Ms Swift was fully aware of the deeper political implications of situations dealing with the Crimean Peninsula, she may have expressed her honest opinion in a less vindictive way. She is not a politician, and neither am I. Musical artists We should continue to be.

  7. All of US have opinions and viewpoints. As a former musician/entertainer, I have personally believed, that it was in the best interest of my band/troupe, not to be endorsed, nor to endorse any commercial and or political enterprise. Initially, it may indeed raise issues of artistic integrity. Secondly, it may have the potential of the mass public accepting such opinions and viewpoints as somehow more acceptable.

  8. so kanye west does exactly what taylor swift does, and gets hate. but swizzle does it and gets a standing ovation… ok america…

  9. I was indifferent to Taylor Swift, but now my respect for her has increased at least 75%… pretty sure that, mathematically, that nullifies trump's opinion.

  10. Taylor has 4 walls surrounding her L.A. home – I wonder what her position is on immigration…….?

  11. I’m surprised he didn’t mention Eminem and how after he made the Trump Diss Track, Ellen (big time liberal) went from saying “this rapper must be stopped” to “I love Eminem”. Both sides are important bud.

  12. Still prefer Kanye musically but respect to Taylor, I'll try listening to her garbage tunes at least once before the end of the year.

  13. Lol. Indeed, Trump was taking off, but did an about face when he heard "Taylor Swift!" Just delightful.

  14. I'm happy that Taylor has spoken out because she has a big platform and can truly motivate people to get out and vote on November 6, vote for people who are more agreeable to your political views regardless of your political party.

  15. I could not careless about what a celebrity's political views are. They are jesters for our entertainment. However, they have a right to voice their opinion and should not be hounded for it, just like anyone else. With that said, I just love to see people "back-up" or demonize them, because their views. "I followed them from the beginning, but now they think differently than me, fuck'em" or conversely, "I do not care about them or their work, but they agree with me and that means NOW they deserve my protection.". Nope, no hypocrisy here…

  16. Never be influenced by what a "Celebirty" says, formulated your own views and opinions based off your own personal views and experiences, then question those views with well informed research and challenge yourself by have new and challenging experiences that make you uncomfortable. Then Register do your research and vote, don't be silent.

    Don't vote for a party, vote for the individual views of that person that can benefit You, your Friends and your Family.
