Look what you made her do: Taylor Swift has endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for office.

In a social media post, the mega pop star shared a cover for V Magazine where she explained why she was voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. She wrote, “So apt that it’s come out on the night of the VP debate. Gonna be watching and supporting @KamalaHarris by yelling at the tv a lot. And I also have custom cookies.”

In an excerpt published by V Magazine, Swift said, “The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included. Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them.”

She’s got a blank space, baby, and she’ll write their names.

Slamming Trump over USPS

Swift let the world know how she felt about Trump’s defunding of the USPS back in August. She tweeted, “Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president. He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”

The thing to do, according to Swift? Vote.

“Request a ballot early. Vote early,” she pleaded. Swift would love nothing more than for the U.S. and Trump to never, ever, ever get back together.

No room for Confederate statues

As far as Taylor was concerned, the statues of Edward Carmack and Nathan Bedford Forrest in Tennessee were just another picture to burn.

Showing the world that she was “complex” and “cool,” the pop star explained in her Twitter thread: “Taking down statues isn’t going to fix centuries of systemic oppression, violence and hatred that black people have had to endure but it might bring us one small step closer to making ALL Tennesseans and visitors to our state feel safe – not just the white ones.”

When she stood up for Black Lives Matter

Swift may have spent a few years in silence over political matters, but these days she’s using her platform for good. She rose up from the dead (she does it all the time) and came out in support of Black Lives Matter. She also made sure everyone knew who she blamed for “stoking the fires” of racism and white supremacy.

Haters gonna hate

Just like a “fearless leader” and an “alpha type,” Taylor Swift accepted that the haters were gonna hate and shook off the warning from her publicist in 2018, according to her Netflix documentary Miss Americana.

March for our Lives

In 2018, the pop star donated to the March for Our Lives rally in support of gun control, after the horrific Parkland shooting in Florida that sparked a national outcry.

“I’m so moved by the Parkland High School students, faculty, by all families and friends of victims who have spoken out, trying to prevent this from happening again,” she wrote. “No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence. Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship.”

#MeToo

Swift joined the ranks of innumerable women during the #MeToo movement when she sued a Colorado DJ, David Mueller, for sexual assault. Because Swift spoke up, she inspired many other women to speak up.

Mueller had the nerve to sue Swift after she complained about the DJ’s hand climbing up her skirt during a photo shoot. Mueller was fired and tried to collect damages, but instead lost to Swift’s countersuit, where she won and collected a symbolic $1.

Swift said: “I was angry. In that moment, I decided to forgo any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened…I’m told it was the most amount of times the word ass has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court.”
