Swift had just opened up about why she didn’t take a stand against Trump during the election.
The Swifties are coming for Kid Rock today, after he took a vile swipe at Taylor Swift on Twitter on Friday over her newly-found political voice.
"Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies… period. And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there," he tweeted. "Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl."
The tweet quickly racked up over 14k likes; but all the most popular replies on the singer’s feed were calling him out as a hypocritical suck up to President Donald Trump, whom he openly endorses.
"And you, a Michigander, use the Confederate battle flag as a prop for your concerts because you want to be seen as a white supremacist because those are the only people who like your trash music… period," the top reply read. "Oldest move for a racist in the book."
Taylor herself has yet to address the tweet.
Earlier this week she explained to Vogue why she didn’t speak out against Trump or didn’t endorse his Democratic rival as many of her liberal peers did during the 2016 election.
"Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement," she said without actually naming Trump. "He was going around saying, ‘I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you.’ I just knew I wasn’t going to help."
Her ill-timed "snake" reputation meanwhile, which she earned during her feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, was what held her back from endorsing Hilary Clinton.
"Also, you know, the summer before that election, all people were saying was ‘She’s calculated. She’s manipulative. She’s not what she seems. She’s a snake. She’s a liar,’" Swift added. "These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary."
"Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability," she then asked. "’Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women. The two nasty women.’ Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses."
