Yesterday the midterm elections were held, and this year we learned that the former politically-averse Taylor Swift had no plans on sitting home on election day, throwing a ball of yarn at her cats while squealing “Aw, I vote for cuteness!”
Taylor encouraged people to register to vote, and to get out and vote, and if you lived in Tennessee, to vote for Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen over the Republican incumbent Marsha Blackburn. Marsha Blackburn was re-elected, and Taylor was trolled by Republicans.
Taylor campaigned hard for Phil and he posted a picture of himself on voting day and tagged Taylor in it.

Taylor voted a week early, but she spent yesterday filling her Instagram Stories with pictures of people who did vote, some for the first time.
USA Today says that not long after the race was called, Twitter lit up with right-wingers that were way too excited to rub it in Taylor’s face. Some expressed that Taylor really didn’t appear to have any impact in the outcome, which of course led to the age-old sentiment about entertainers shutting up about politics and stick to entertaining. And some chose to express their pettiness using a variety of Taylor Swift song lyrics, which made them sound less clever, and more like massive Taylor Swift fans.

Looks like @taylorswift13 still has terrible taste in men.

She’s got terrible taste in men? Funny, the same could be said for you, Candace Owens.
Taylor hasn’t responded to anyone who came for her on social media yesterday, perhaps because she’s busy performing the final shows of her Reputation Tour. Or maybe she’s plotting something far more diabolical. Taylor is the master of petty revenge, and when her victim alarm goes off, well – kiss your loved ones goodbye, because it’s all over for you. Normally Swiftmas is about surprising her fans with gifts, but this year Swiftmas could mean a real-live Krampus with a karaoke machine singing Taylor Swift songs at 3am outside of the homes of her Twitter haters. Don’t ask where she’ll find a real Christmas demon like Krampus; she’s rich as hell, and I’m sure she’s got one ready to go in storage.
