“Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill shared a May 2020 post on X (then known as Twitter) from Taylor Swift in which the pop star ripped into then-president Donald Trump and said he would be defeated in that year’s election.
The message “has aged remarkably well,” Hamill wrote.
“Especially the ‘We’ll vote you out in November’ part,” he added.
Swift’s full message read: “After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism for your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? “When the looting starts, the shooting starts”??? We will eliminate you in November.
This was in response to Trump’s comments calling people protesting the death of George Floyd “thugs” and his threats of violent intervention in demonstrations against systemic racism.
Swift also tagged the then-president.
Hamill’s repost of Swift’s comment went viral and garnered over a million views in its first eight hours on X.
Swift has in recent weeks become the subject of a baseless right-wing conspiracy theory that she is a Democratic operative with tight ties to the Kansas City Chiefs. Travis Kelce is a psychological operation that aims solely to propel President Joe Biden to the White House.
Trump, meanwhile, claimed he made Swift “so much money” and argued she would be “disloyal” if she supported Biden, as she did in 2020.
