Trump to Taylor Swift: Please don’t endorse someone else

Hours before the kickoff of Super Bowl LVIII, Donald Trump had a message for Taylor Swift: Don’t endorse Joe Biden.

In a post on social media Sunday, the former president made a backhanded plea to the pop star, who is expected to be featured prominently on TV during the game, which her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, is playing in.


Trump claimed credit for Swift’s financial success, calling a possible endorsement of Biden “disloyal to the man who made her so much money.”

“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists. Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will,” Trump   wrote on Truth Social , referencing legislation he signed in 2018 meant to modernize copyright laws.

“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!”

Late last month, a New York Times report that Biden’s campaign was looking to court Swift’s endorsement fueled a chain of conspiracies, including one that the NFL postseason was rigged to favor the Chiefs so Swift could deliver the endorsement in front of a massive TV audience at the game.

Swift endorsed Biden over Trump in 2020, but has not given any indication that she’ll weigh in.

I'm not that familiar with pop music, but my daughter tells me bad boyfriend break up songs made her that money. you'd think that would be an adequate red flag for a misogynist. she didn't mention any names in her songs, but all the swifty's know who she's talking about. imagine going into the meaty part of the primaries with a hit song dogging your dumb ass...

As far as I can discern, Donald Trump  (who is know to Objectify women or think they need a father-figure in their lives) has only expressed shame once for saying or writing something: The on the bus with Billy Bush ("Extra") videotape replay. It still remains to be explained if he was embarrassed about this or that:

1. That the talk was recorded and played back during his first campaign (2016).

2. That the public and voters got to here it played over and over again.

3. That his children and grandchildren could hear it. 

But then, he and his team came up with a solution to the problem: Call it, "locker-room talk" and move on. 

Since then, the man has been and is for all intents and purposes: Shameless!

Go ahead Ms. Swift, endorse Joe Biden and it does not even have to happen while the whole world watches. . . because you have done the work required to be a big-Top influencer. You can do it now or wait and do it later. . . the effect will be same.

I agree that it is Taylor's prerogative to endorse or not endorse. . . but, as the situation would have it. . . if she does not speak after Trump made his 'delivery' and antagonistic statements (of sorts) against her presumed position. . .it will appear that she is doing his bidding.

She's already smarter and more politically knowledgeable than the vast majority of folk who ever ran for the job.

IIRC there is a video online of her saying she won’t endorse Trump, doesn’t like him — or words to that effect. (She ‘s at home talking with her parents). I don’t have time now but will look for later and post it if I can find it ( it might have been on Instagram?)

It’s  widely known that she has told her fans that it’s important to vote ( for whomever they choose) and urged them to register.

I found it. She's actually speaking out very strongly about Republican Martha Blackburn.of Tennessee, but there are references to Trump:

One of the film's most dramatic scenes shows Swift, eager to  speak out against the 2018 Senate campaign of Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn , meeting with her family to discuss it. Her father warns against it, citing the potential economic impact. Her publicist later advises President Donald Trump might come after her. Indeed, when Swift posted on Instagram against Blackburn and urged young voters to register, Trump said he liked Swift's music about 25% less — a response Swift mocks in the film.

If Usher is a superstar why did he need to have 6 or 7 "guest stars" for a 15 minute show?  It's like the NFL told him he's not big enough to go it alone.

I agree it was not enough of Usher (as the whole thing seemed 'hurried' more than usual), but perhaps Usher is "charitable" and shared it with his friends. Usher in a GMA interview says, 'I have been on a thirty-year journey and I did not get to this 'spot' (Super Bowl Special) by himself. . . so he is carrying all the great black artists with him (and thus some live on stage).'  Paraphrase. In addition, I have observed that Usher had more time than some half-time productions and stars. It seems to be 'trending' now to provide more celebrity "cameos"  for their song collaborations and enduring friendships. I am curious how Usher drew a line to the deep south's: JSU "Sonic Boom" marching band from Jackson, Mississippi.

It could explain the 'rush' of songs and hasty finish at the end.

You do have a good point. It was shaping up to be a routing for K.C. . .the first half. . . and the slow scoring progression. . . but then, K.C. Mahomes came in like Miley. . . with a 'wrecking ball' to swing at the 49'ers!

Swift's rep may take a serious hit if she stays with Kelce after his display of temper tantrums at the Super Bowl.  Her fans are concerned about what he will do to her mental and physical health because her popularity far outshines his.  She could be only one temper tantrum away from bruises, broken bones or death.  I doubt they'll be concerned about or have much respect for her political views if she lowers her status to continue a relationship with a man with a violent temper.

Fans quickly took to social media to comment on the shocking moment, with some Swift fans labeling it a 'red flag' for the singer.

Elsewhere, some NFL fans called it a 'bad look' for the tight end, who is arguably the most famous football star in the planet after a monster season on and off the field. 

Incredibly, it is not the first time Kelce has suffered a similar meltdown. On  Christmas   Day, Kelce   had another tete-a-tete with coach Reid , and was spotted slamming his helmet to the floor during a 20-14 loss to the   Las Vegas Raiders .

Immediately after, a Chiefs staffer tried giving Kelce a replacement helmet, but he was quickly stopped by coach Reid - clearly worried that would get smashed too.

Your link is click-bait site. I doubt much of anything could damage TS at this point. Football players getting animated on the sidelines is not a new issue and there have never been any rumors of Kelce doing anything remotely violent off the field. I am not a fan of either one of them, but I hate click-baity articles like your link.

Defending a man with anger issues as being "animated" works great for everyone who never has to deal with him.  For the people who have been there and done that, this is a red flag.  If there is a pattern of public anger issues, then it is cause for concern of what has been shielded from the public.

Also, consider the following information, or don't.  However, Taylor's fans have valid reasons to be concerned about her being damaged by being in a relationship with a man who has public temper tantrums regardless of their occupation.  

All NFL Players Arrested for Domestic Violence (ranker.com)

Which NFL players were arrested for domestic violence? As much as people love the NFL, one of the biggest problems that the league has faced over the years is that its players are more likely, at least publicly, to commit domestic violence. Maybe it's a consequence of the violent nature of the sport. Given all of the attention NFL football players and domestic violence have received over the past few years, and NFL-specific education programs the league has put in place in recent years, it's surprising that players still end up in the police blotter. Many NFL players have been caught beating their wives or significant others and wind up getting arrested. While the NFL has cracked down on domestic violence, it's likely that it will happen again in the future.

The stories have gotten more coverage over the years, with the attention potentially peaking with the infamous Ray Rice incident that took place in February 2014. In recent years, NFL stars like Adrian Peterson, Kareem Hunt, and Jerry Jeudy have all been arrested for domestic violence.

If you're an NFL player, you don't want to end up on this list. But, that said, here are the   NFL players who have been arrested   on domestic violence charges.

I would totally agree with this if it in any way manifested itself outside the football field.  Of course I have no clue if that is this case.  Although I agree people that are so emotional during a game may translate to a similar behavior off the field but I don't think that is necessarily the case.  I give it a yellow flag until something happens off the field, and I am not just talking about to a significant other but anywhere in public.

Neither does anyone else - until it makes the news, unfortunately.

However, there is a pattern of behavior in everyone's life that should be considered because that is who they really are when life disappoints or frustrates them.  Some people take responsibility and deal with disappointment and frustration in ways that improve their lives and some people blame and destroy other people in order to deal with disappointment and frustration.

So if the pattern is established to lash out at other people in public, there is no reason to believe that it does not happen in private is there?  That is why this is considered a red flag.  There are other red flags to consider, but when frustration ends in physical violence, one is one too many if you are the person on the receiving end.   Unfortunately, these relationships  usually only start because a person ignores the established pattern of red flags in the first place.

My experiences with jocks and yours are very different.  And evidently my experiences are very similar to a lot of people who see the difference between healthy emotional responses to intense situations and unhealthy, unacceptable responses to intense situations.  

Athletes should be required to have and respect the same boundaries as the rest of society.  And because some people see them as role models for children, this type of anger should be met with penalties from the organization they are representing.

I agree. All society should be required to respect the boundaries of others, but they don't. Across the world people are still debating what gender roles mean. It used to be "manly" to "grab 'em by the pussy" if one was famous. Cat calls and a slap on the ass to a waitress was flirting. Until very, very recently it was still legal to rape one's wife in most states. Rape kits are still not being tested and often not collected. Victim shaming is still the go to response by many men and some states are changing laws to insure that rape allegations must be filed right away or they don't count.

So, hey, our problem is not one football player dating a billionaire who got a little hot at his coach on TV and has no one saying anything but nice things about him when he's not on a football field. You can flag it all you want, but there are about a billion other more immediate known abusers who's victims don't have a billion dollars and an entourage of people to look after them. Taylor Swift is seems smart enough to look after herself.

This is often said when a woman is married to an abuser and told that she should have been smarter and should have known what she was getting into.  It is not like he had "hid his temper" from anyone.  

Being a billionaire, does not make a person immune to abuse or being sucked into an abusive relationship.  

Hopefully, Taylor does not become another abuse statistic.  Only time will tell.

There are actually programs that use sports as a way to curb violence and bring children together.  I love these programs that help kids develop a balanced view of playing a game.  Winning is not everything and neither is losing.  Sports is an activity to be enjoyed instead of viewing like the fate of civilization depends on the outcome.

Used to be a bouncer, bodyguard, paramedic, martial art instructor... but have never been violent with friends or a lover. 

Most of us who know how to turn it on also know how to keep it turned off. We have nothing to prove. 

Know many trained fighters who would back far away rather than be sucked into a fight.

Trav had it turned on in the most important game of his life. He allowed Jerick McKinnon to grab him, walk him away and cool him down (play of the game).

A few seconds later they were best friends again.

And dangerous to other people's mental health even as a bystander.

Very dangerous to other people's physical health if his temper fits escalate to violence.

This is why these displays of temper are considered a red flag and should not be ignored.  

Travis may benefit from counseling on understanding his anger issues.  No one benefits from being the target of another person's anger issues.

Note:  I have no issue with Taylor endorsing Biden for president.   I am truly concerned about her mental and physical well-being.

Per interviews, Taylor put a lot of effort into getting into shape for her Eras tour.  This included limiting alcohol consumption.  If she allows alcohol to ruin her life and career, then she will just be another role model for how alcoholism ruins lives.

Something to consider: MAGA conservatives are very subtle, very deliberate, and very sneaky. So Trump announces from his 'loudspeaker' that Taylor Swift should not use the 'platform' of the Super Bowl to endorse (Biden) anybody. . . and then "heavy" trolling of her starts and whether she wants to endorse or not. . . she is being mentally PARALYZED and let to stare straight ahead at the "bright lights" shining in her face from. . .MAGAs. 

If I were Ms. Swift (I am not) I would realize that a sneak attack on my psyche has been invoked by MAGAs to give me (her) something to be distracted by and locked down! 

She has to extricate her mind from this actual (not imaginary) psyop (clandestine) attack from MAGAs. . . and the sooner she regains her and Kelce's release from the paralysis to speak as they choose ("freedom MAGA don't forget it!) the better off she will be once again to go out and create 'Swift Magic' (Copyrighted by CB.).
