Republicans Mocked For Saying Taylor Swift Came Down From Her ‘Tower’ To Endorse Democrats

I mean, the president literally lives in a tower named after him.

Every day just feels dumber than the last.

The morning after pop megastar Taylor Swift broke her longstanding political silence to endorse Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee, conservatives and Republicans have lashed out at the ‘Shake It Off’ songstress. This included a press release from the National Republican Senate Committee portraying Swift as an out-of-touch elite telling “hardworking Tennesseans” who to vote for.

Via The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein:

Yes, how dare multimillionaires come down from their towers to get involved in politics?

It didn’t take long for the NRSC to be subjected to widespread mockery for not updating its talking points now that the Prtesident of the United States is someone who literally lives in a self-named tower.
