Taylor Swift Launches Disgustingly Ignorant Attack On President Trump

Pop icon Taylor Swift spoke out against President Trump, campaigning in favor of lobbying United States Senators to support the LGBTQ Equality Act.

Breitbart News reports:

The “Shake It Off” singer celebrated Pride Month in a lengthy Instagram message, by launching a petition demanding “on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally,” and with a letter to her Republican Senator in Tennessee Lamar Alexander.

Using her enormous social platform, the platinum-selling crooner applied pressure to politicians who “need votes to stay in office.”

“Votes come from the people. Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change,” the pop star said. “Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic.”

Breitbart explains, “The U.S. House has passed its version of the Equality Act, which Taylor Swift said is ‘filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights.’”

🌈HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!!🌈 While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally. In excellent recent news, the House has passed the Equality Act, which would protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in their places of work, homes, schools, and other public accommodations. The next step is that the bill will go before the Senate. I’ve decided to kick off Pride Month by writing a letter to one of my senators to explain how strongly I feel that the Equality Act should be passed. I urge you to write to your senators too. I’ll be looking for your letters by searching the hashtag #lettertomysenator. While there’s no information yet as to when the Equality Act will go before the Senate for a vote, we do know this: Politicians need votes to stay in office. Votes come from the people. Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change. That’s why I’ve created a petition at change.org to urge the Senate to support the Equality Act. Our country’s lack of protection for its own citizens ensures that LGBTQ people must live in fear that their lives could be turned upside down by an employer or landlord who is homophobic or transphobic. The fact that, legally, some people are completely at the mercy of the hatred and bigotry of others is disgusting and unacceptable. Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 Click the link in my bio to sign the petition for Senate support of the Equality Act.

In the letter she penned to Senator Alexander, the Grammy-award-winning singer said, “I personally reject the President’s stance that his administration ‘supports equal treatment of all.’”

On Friday, President Trump celebrated Pride Month, which kicked off on Saturday, and “doubled down on his declaration that the international community decriminalizes homosexuality in countries where it is currently illegal,” according to Breitbart.

“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals,” President Trump stated. “[…] on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”

Although Trump has been attacked by the liberal left and many LGBTQ activists, he has remained an advocate for the community as a whole.

Breitbart explains:

In February, the Trump administration launched a worldwide campaign to decriminalize homosexuality. The initiative is being spearheaded by U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, whom Trump nominated for the post and who is among the highest-ranking openly gay officials ever to serve in the U.S. government.

Swift had long-avoided political campaigning but lobbed smears at Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and endorsed Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen during the midterm elections. Blackburn easily defeated Bredesen, despite Swift’s support.

The “Reputation” singer announced this week that she plans to get “political” on her upcoming album.
