Vocable (All English) - - On Parle D'eux… -

Last month, Amer­i­can singer, Tay­lor Swift, has bro­ken her years of po­lit­i­cal si­lence to en­dorse on In­sta­gram two Demo­cratic can­di­dates run­ning in her state of Ten­nessee in the up­com­ing midterm elec­tions. “In the past I’ve been re­luc­tant to pub­licly voice my po­lit­i­cal opin­ions, but due to sev­eral events [...] in the world in the past two years, I feel very dif­fer­ently about that now,” she wrote in a long post. She stated that she “couldn’t sup­port” Mar­sha Black­burn, the Repub­li­can can­di­date for the Se­nate en­dorsed by Don­ald Trump, and en­cour­aged her 112 mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers to regis­ter to vote in time for the midterms. Af­ter she posted her state­ment, the US voter reg­is­tra­tion ser­vice ex­pe­ri­enced a spike in num­bers, with 65,000 new regis­tra­tions in the next 24 hours!
