Trump Promises If Elected He Will Ban Taylor Swift From Football Games

 Swift is a witch - & I can prove it, if her BF's team wins the SuperBowl, it is one of her spells.
If they lose, it absolutely proves she's a witch.
Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".

Her success means she might be a witch.  Dunk her for fifteen minutes.  If she drowns, she wasn't a witch.  If she lives, she was a witch, so burn her.

I'd vote for her over Biden...
 
I wonder how many people she employs?

Sorry, that's not enough to get me to start watching football.

According to the always trusty internet she will soon be coming out in support of Biden

Her advisors would be smart to tell her to stay the hell out of politics.  They carefully assess the proportion of people you would piss off.  And it seems that percentage may change on a day-to-day basis.

It isn't the first time. Doesn't the GOP/non-MSM have more pressing issues to deal with other than who is endorsing Biden? Just wondering out loud. ;)

Everyone online is trying to ride the wave of public interest and do videos or articles on whatever brings in the views/clicks.  I always figured that was why all the daily conservative radio shows would focus on whatever was big in D.C.  It was news that was easy to access and there was always something new.  Other issues probably require more knowledge and more research/work to talk about.

Yeah, it's too late. If I remember right, she was apolitical at first, but was shamed into taking a side some years ago. (Or threatened; I don't know how it works.)

Enter the Babylon Bee:

I don't get the joke. They're saying that's too far-fetched? Sounds like a joke headline from 5 years ago, when stuff like that sounded ridiculous.

Perhaps they've never heard of the 2019 NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence conference.

The real question is if Kelce wins will she cost herself billions by finally putting out a decent BJ and thus derailing a never ending revenue stream of breakup songs.

I'm so contrarian that I didn't respond to the thread.

This is what I recall as well. I suppose you could call it a business decision, since "coming out" with a leftist stance would resonate with a majority of her fan base.

A few years ago Swift did make a charming music video ridiculing Christians with traditional sexual morality.

Stunning and brave.

I guess my tinfoil lid is just a little too tight, as I find it odd that some on the right (the Babylon Bee & Ben Shapiro) are taking pains to strawman and mock the conspiracy theories about Taylor Swift & her boyfriend. It's probably the tamest and most believable conspiracy theory I can think of, but they seem to be purposely exaggerating it into some years-long narrative, with conspirators creating two celebrities, ex nihilo, just to sell vaccines or win an election (depending on which version of the theory we're talking about). Huh?

This is hardly the first time people have wondered if a celebrity relationship was really just a business arrangement, or that celebrities have been accused of doing what's politically expedient. So why all the fuss?

It’s hard to draw any concrete conclusions here, and as of now, I suspect that if there is a psyop here, it’s that there’s been a psyop to convince the public that large numbers of Republican voters believe Taylor Swift is a psyop.

So who's watching the Swifter Bowl?

I'd be more likely to watch if it were actually the Swifter Bowl.  Taylor, for all her faults, is less criminal, degenerate, and all around reprehensible than the NFL.

And much better looking, too.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.
