Trump Is Now Posting Menacingly About Taylor Swift, Because Of Course He Is

In a strange but characteristic turn, former President Donald Trump — continued front-runner for this year’s presidential nomination from the Republican Party — is now speaking out antagonistically towards popular singer Taylor Swift.

For some reason, Swift — generally known as liberal, though she’s not particularly outspoken about politics — recently became a target of the pro-Trump sphere. A segment on the Fox News show hosted by Jesse Watters suggested that Swift was secretly a government agent, after which even the Defense Department (through a spokesperson) joined the mockery. And now, here’s Trump’s take.

“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists,” Trump posted online this Sunday. “Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will. There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money. Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”

Is he speaking… threateningly towards famous pop star Taylor Swift? Trump saying that Swift supporting Biden would be “disloyal” creates the question of what the ex-president would say if the singer did back the incumbent. Trump has previously sought concrete action against figures he’s characterized similarly, though as technically just a private citizen, his powers are obviously much more limited. But just look at the public campaign that Trump waged against failed presidential primary opponent Ron DeSantis, Florida’s GOP governor.

The news publication Variety obtained comment from an attorney associated with the legislation that Trump referenced who questioned Trump’s basic knowledge of it. Trump “doesn’t even know what the Music Modernization Act does,” Dina LaPolt opined to Variety. In short, the legislation — signed by then-President Trump — established a new, centralized system for the distribution of royalties associated with music distribution.
