Shania Twain Is Sorry For Saying She Would’ve Voted For Trump

April 23, 2018 / Posted by:

Last Thursday, Shania Twain appeared as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. An entirely appropriate choice, considering you’d be hard pressed to find a queen who hasn’t turned it out to Man! I Feel Like a Woman. But then just three days later, the same people that were hollering “Werk, Timmins!” were suddenly asking her to sashay away. Shania revealed in an interview with The Guardian published yesterday that had she been able to vote in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, she would have voted for Donald Trump. Obviously that didn’t sit well with fans, and now she’s walking back what she said.

The Guardian pointed out that Shania is a conservative, so her feelings on Trump probably shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise. Shania is a Canadian living in Corseaux, Switzerland, so she couldn’t vote. But if she could, she would have chosen Trump, because he seemed honest. Someone really needs to inform Shania that the guy who covered up an affair with hush money clearly isn’t a fan of truth.

“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

For someone who is always shrugging off the superficial stuff that doesn’t impress her much, she sure does like a President that is constantly bragging about how amazing he is.

Outing herself as a Swiss-dwelling Canadian Trump supporter might not be a great move for a person who once called Man! I Feel Like a Woman both a girl and gay power song. So she took this twain-wreck to Twitter and did some damage control.

Saying the words “I would have voted for him” seems like a pretty loud endorsement. Still, Shania swears she’s not about discrimination and shares no common moral beliefs. That’s fine. But in case you’re not fully convinced and you’re looking for a new brunette Ontario chanteuse to stan, might I suggest we all temporarily pivot over to Alannah Myles. Sure she only really has one good song, but damn if Black Velvet isn’t the type of drunk-and-horny at the bar-sounding track we can all get behind.
