Alright for Taylor Swift. Not only has she been “yelling at the TV a lot,” she also has special “custom cookies,” with her presidential endorsement on them in sweet, sweet colors. The highly-talented musician is an outspoken activist with 140 million followers on Instagram and over 87 million on Twitter. Wednesday, Swift announced she was throwing all her substantial power behind the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket.
The megastar has used her fame and platforms as a means to support social causes and weigh in on political matters, according to The New York Times:
‘I spoke to @vmagazine about why I’ll be voting for Joe Biden for president. So apt that it’s come out on the night of the VP debate. Gonna be watching and supporting @KamalaHarris by yelling at the tv a lot. And I also have custom cookies‘
Swift has the cover story in The V127’s Thought Leaders Issue. She has commonsense good values, and her music brings together people across any of the many potential divides. The singer-songwriter values woman’s right to control their own bodies — as opposed to old rich white men in Washington, DC.
She points out what should be everyday actions, that “people of color deserve to feel safe.” In addition, she supports the LGBTQIA community and believes in a government committed to handling “global health risks.” She told V:
‘The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included.’
Swift expects the country to have leaders we choose, “who are willing to face these issues and work through them:”
‘Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them.’
Then, in a beautiful crescendo, she endorsed “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris” to “start the healing process:”
‘I will proudly vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in this year’s presidential election. Under their leadership, I believe America has a chance to start the healing process it so desperately needs.’
Two years ago she endorsed two Democratic candidates in her adopted home state of Tennessee. Then, she went after Representative Marsha Blackburn’s poor record, during her campaign for senator.
In the summer of 2020, Swift supported Black Lives Matter following the cold murder of George Floyd. In addition, she favored removing the monuments of two truly “DESPICABLE figures in our state history.”
Recently, she has criticized Donald Trump for “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism.” Plus, she supported mail-in voting.
Twitter world went absolutely crazy for Taylor Swift’s power move. Take a look at some of our favorite Americans’ responses below:
