(DCWatchdog.com) – In one of the most bizarre public figure couplings lately, anti-Trump Republican and former US Rep. Liz Cheney and former NBA star Charles Barkley have united for the sake of attacking conservative Americans and defending pop singer Taylor Swift, another anti-Trump individual.
See the video of Barkley’s comments below!
Both Cheney and Barkley have now proclaimed their admiration of Swift over a wave of criticism by Republicans and conservative pundits toward the mainstream media for its constant and excessive focus on the singer.
A report by Breitbart News points out that this attention has elevated Swift’s status to an almost sacred level, with Time magazine naming her its 2023 Person of the Year.
Moreover, Swift’s relationship with Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs has further cemented her presence in the public eye, particularly within NFL broadcasts.
However, this has led to widespread suspicions of the possibly orchestrated nature of her media coverage as the November elections approach.
“Taylor Swift is a national treasure,” anti-Trump Republican Liz Cheney declared in a post on X.
This declaration marks Cheney as a fan of Swift, who has been known for her anti-Trump stance, mirroring Cheney’s own political views.
Despite her devastating electoral defeat in Wyoming costing her the House seat, the former congresswoman remains active in the media landscape, appearing on programs such as ABC’s “The View.”
In these appearances, she has maintained her stance against former President Donald Trump while leaving the possibility of supporting Biden.
Breitbart News notes that Swift’s political actions, including her endorsement of Biden in 2020 and her criticisms of Trump and his followers, align with Cheney’s views.
A recent poll indicates that Swift’s endorsement could be crucial in the upcoming 2024 election, highlighting her influence in political matters.
Meanwhile, Charles Barkley, a well-known basketball commentator, has chimed in by blasting those attacking Swift.
He referred to criticism over her relationship with Kelce and the suspicions that the NFL might be rigging matches to guarantee victories for the Chiefs, boost Swift’s public profile, and thus help Joe Biden get reelected.
“If you’re screaming at Taylor Swift saying she ruined … you’re just a loser. You’re just a loser or a jackass. You can be A or B. One of the two,” Barkley said on “King Charles,” the weekly show he hosts in prime time with anchor Gayle King.
