Trump says he likes Swift's music less post-endorsement

Rick Scuteri  Invision  Associated Press

Trump isn't the only Republican figure dismissing Swift's endorsement and discounting women's ability to process information and make an informed decision at the polls, though.

Swift said that while she typically tries to support women running for office, Blackburn's voting record "appalls and terrifies me".

"Let's just say I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, OK?", he told reporters.

The country singer-turned-pop superstar also explained why she was finally speaking out about her political views, something she had previously received intense pressure to do. She also endorsed incumbent Democratic Representative Jim Cooper. These are not MY Tennessee values. However, she wrote Sunday that she now feels "very differently" and announced she would be voting for Tennessee Democrats.

She added: "I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of colour is terrifying, sickening and prevalent".

Swift also got support from Ellen DeGeneres and actor Mark Hamill, while Republican politician Mike Huckabee dismissed Swift's impact on the election by underestimating her fan based by saying that "13 yr old girls" can't vote. Her Instagram post Sunday referred to specific issues that millennials like her care about and connected them to Democratic congressional candidates in her home state of Tennessee, citing a voter registration website and a Tuesday deadline.

Her statement has earned her huge amounts of fans and praise from people all over the world but, as expected, it's pissed off a lot of Republicans - including Trump, who had a lot to say about her the other day in the press. SAD!

Meanwhile, Bredesen was quick to jump on Swift's comments, tweeting her song lyrics in a cheeky jibe at Blackburn on social media.

"Of course I support women", she told Connell McShane on Tuesday.

"We are up to 65,000 registrations in a single 24-hour period since T. Swift's post", said Guthrie.

"She voted against the reauthorisation of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape".

Blackburn, who in the House is a co-sponsor of the Hearing Protection Act to partially deregulate suppressors as well as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act to safeguard carry rights nationwide, vows to confirm "President Trump's strict constitutionalist nominees" to the Supreme Court if sent to the Senate.

But did the president ever like Swift to begin with? She's a tremendous woman. But judging by the other memes and posts she's liked, it's clear that she's done caring about silencing herself on important matters that affect the country, minorities and those who's voices are never heard.

"Vote.org saw [Tennessee] registrations spike specifically since Taylor's post", Guthrie said.
