Donald Trump Went After Taylor Swift During a Press Conference for Endorsing Democrats

During a press conference on the South Lawn of the White House today, Donald Trump responded to Taylor Swift’s newly-public Democratic agenda by saying he likes her music less.

A reporter told him that Swift publicly opposed Marsha Blackburn, a woman running for re-election in the House of Representatives in Tennessee, and he said “I’m sure Taylor Swift has nothing or doesn’t know anything about her.”

Then, he proceeded to say, “Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 percent less now, okay?”

Swift broke a career’s worth of political silence last night when she posted an Instagram endorsing two Democratic candidates in her home state. “As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me,” she wrote.

“I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values,” she continued.

She intentionally turned off the comments on the Instagram when she posted it, perhaps because she didn’t want to deal with people who suddenly liked her music “25 percent less.”
