Picture looks like father and daughter. But, if she is already an anti-hero she may as well endorse their foes. Still, there are record sales involved and she may be more interested in the money to be made by keeping coy.

Fox News host Jesse Watters suggested that Swift may be a Pentagon asset used to combat online misinformation. Former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy tweeted that he thinks Swift and Kelce are being artificially propped up by the media pending an upcoming Swift endorsement of Joe Biden. OAN referred to the couple as a “Massive Super Bowl Psy-op,” a brainwashing campaign designed to indoctrinate citizens to an elite agenda and away from religion.

That's a bucketful of stupid right there...and what's even more sad is most of those folks don't believe it, they are just pushing it to the stupid who do believe it...

It's all a scam to get you to watch more of their stupid TV shows and podcasts...

But that's MAGA-world today, where stupidity reigns...

Well they hate feminism and bodily autonomy so that is like 0/2.

What probably bugs Jupiter most is that she is both wealthier and a more popular and beloved media figure than he is. She's too classy to say it though.

Why Taylor Swift is an antihero to GOP

I think the word "antihero" is not being used properly here, the GOP do not consider Taylor Swift heroic even if she has a difference sense of morality or is in a dark path of self destruction (which is what the term antihero is usually used for). According to the article she would be a Nemesis or even a Villain since Swift now represent values that are antagonistic with what the GOP defends.

By the way, reading the article I can't stop thinking that if you interchanged the names of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce they would still fit a lot with their current image.

Moonraker, they are the same age

She should avoid endorsing Biden for her own safety. MAGA is quite willing to get violent with people from their own party, never mind someone from another. It's part of their political culture.

How mental is America?

Taylor Swift being dragged into democratic election media Psi-Op = false narrative that republicans do not like her, that she's pro democratic party etc. = Pure Lies.

Taylor Swift knows that its ONLY pro democratic media elites (media industry as whole always donates more to d's than r's FYI by huge margin) who are trying to weaponize her popularity and influence. Why?

Because Biden's in the 30's% for approval, HIGH Prices, Crime, Interest Rates & Open Borders, Global Chaos etc. Democratic operatives desperate, nothing to run on!

Taylor Swift knows coordinated media gas-lighting campaign to manipulate public opinion is another example of societal corruption, putting her at risk professionally and upsetting many of her loyal fans.

For political operative sewage, nothing's off limits. Ms. Swift makes people happy and brings them together. Due to her great success, she's victim of another corrupt political scam, pathetic, doubtful Ms. Swift's happy about it!

Why Taylor Swift is an antihero to GOP?

It’s easy to see. Scroll up just a little and see how off target some men get when she comes up in an article.

Without having ever heard any of her music, I still like and respect her because she is phenomenally successful at what she does.
