So Taylor Swift, one of the most popular singers in the world, has made a rare political endorsement. In a recent statement on Instagram, Ms. Swift said that although she regularly supports voting for women, in the case of her home state of Tennessee, she cannot vote for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and that she will be voting for Democratic candidates in the mid term elections.

Let us just say that, wherever you stand politically, if a 28 year old pop starlet is the primary influence in who you vote for, then you have much more serious issues to address.

Evangelical Hard Sell

Continuing our discourse regarding A-1 nutball President Trump, today the Commander-In-Chief warned evangelical groups that their support is desperately needed for this November’s mid-term elections and that an adverse result could lead to violence. He then stated that the elections are not so much a referendum on him but a referendum on the Christian religion and the First Amendment.

“It’s not a question of like or dislike, it’s a question that they will overturn everything that we’ve done and they will do it quickly and violently. And violently. There is violence,” Trump said, describing what would happen should his voters fail to cast ballots. “The level of hatred, the level of anger is very unbelievable.”

“You’re one election away from losing everything that you’ve gotten,” he added. “Little thing: Merry Christmas, right? You couldn’t say ‘Merry Christmas.’ ”

Nothing like a little fear, loathing and passing the blame for potential future failure to rally the troops…

And by the way, for all the fear, fire and brimstone the Evangelicals live by, they seem rather quick to cozy up to President Trump as someone ordained by God. Thought you folks were wary of false prophets?
