Tay­lor Swift shouldn't talk pol­i­tics

USA TODAY International Edition - - OPINION -

Singer Tay­lor Swift en­dorsed two Demo­cratic con­gres­sional nom­i­nees in Ten­nessee on her In­sta­gram ac­count. Ac­cord­ing to Vote.org, her post has in­spired a surge in voter regis­tra­tion. I don’t re­ally care what celebri­ties think when it comes to pol­i­tics. If I want to hear or know about that I will tune in to CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, lo­cal news, etc. When it comes to celebri­ties, they should just en­ter­tain. I couldn’t care less which side they’re on. Beth McGlamery King Con­ser­va­tives cel­e­brate Kanye West for be­ing po­lit­i­cal but de­mo­nize Tay­lor Swift for be­ing the kind of po­lit­i­cal they don’t like. And yet, the “de­polorables” dare call us snowflakes. Ian Blake Of course Swift is vot­ing Demo­crat. She doesn’t want to lose all of her celebrity friends and en­dorse­ments. Peo­ple, de­cide for your­selves! You don’t need a celebrity to tell you what to do. Linda Reyes Wright Swift will per­suade mil­lions of first­time vot­ers to vote Demo­crat. Hey, if Trump has Kellyanne Con­way ... Bruce Miller In­de­pen­dent voter here! What is per­plex­ing to me is that movie stars, mu­si­cians, ath­letes and other en­ter­tain­ers even feel the need to share their po­lit­i­cal views. Maybe I am alone here, but I could not pos­si­bly care less what their po­lit­i­cal lean­ings are. Keep your mouths shut and en­ter­tain us. Noth­ing more, noth­ing less. Chad Miller Wow, so many Repub­li­cans com­plain­ing about Swift’s com­ments, but they eat up Scott Baio, Kid Rock and Stephen Bald­win’s non­sense. Dave Chris­tian
