While Taylor Swift chose to remain silent during the 2016 election, Kid Rock buddied right up to Donald Trump. Although whether Swift’s decision was actually a shrewd one is debatable, at least she’s not aligned with a president who’s used as an excuse for fracturing a 13-year-old’s skull. Now that she’s vowed to get more political, however, Kid MAGMA has seen it fit to attack Swift for trying to gain Hollywood clout.
In a completely unprovoked tweet, Kid Rock wrote, “Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period.” He went on to get needlessly sexist and regressive, adding, “And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there.” And then he signed the Tweet, as if to say, “Yes, I will stand by this ridiculous and baseless comment 100%.”
Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period. And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl.
