OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


Popular conservative commentator Candace Owens recently tore into singer Taylor Swift, calling her the most toxic feminist” during an event hosted on Daily Wire+.

“If you’ve seen what she’s ever done in business and how she tries to manipulate her audiences to get out of deals and contracts, she’s insane,” Owens said.

“She’s the most toxic feminist that’s ever existed,” Owens added.

Owens criticized Swift for penning songs about her breakups, calling them “psychotic.”

Owens even claimed Swift’s relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce was a “business move.”

Owens also called out Swift’s prior comments regarding Girls star Lena Dunham.

“She literally said, ‘Lena Dunham taught me feminism, which basically means that you can get whatever you want as long as you’re able to sell to people that you’re a victim because you’re a woman. And she has done it to the tune of a billion dollars,” Owens said.

Swift could potentially find herself at the center of the 2024 presidential election.

Biden seeks to reinvigorate his campaign with new, young energy amidst historic low disapproval ratings.

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump continues to gain traction in the Republican primaries.

To give his re-election bid a “fresh feel,” Biden’s team is exploring potential endorsements from prominent figures, including celebrities.

One name that has come up is Taylor Swift, one of the nation’s biggest stars and holds the record for the first artist to see a tour gross over $1 billion, with 4.35 million tickets sold across 60 tour dates in 2023.

Biden’s team is worried about voting blocs that are trending away from him, including young, black, and Latino voters.

In 2020, Biden won young voters by 20 percentage points, but he is now tied with Trump among this demographic.

This is due, in part, to concerns over Biden’s age, his stance on Israel, and the state of the economy. Democratic allies and lawmakers are worried about Biden’s chances of winning these voters over and securing a second term.

“To reach young voters, Biden’s campaign has focused heavily on social media, using videos from influencers and even those with a niche following to promote its message. The president recently visited the home of a man who had his federal loans canceled through Biden’s program, a focal point of Biden’s reelection campaign. The man’s son posted a video of Biden’s visit on TikTok, drawing millions of views,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“The campaign is discussing opportunities for celebrities to promote the president on social media platforms. There are plans to hold a fundraiser with two former Democratic presidents, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, sources told NBC News. However, the end game is to receive an endorsement from Swift, who has become influential both on and off the stage on social media. Her recent appearances at NFL games have grown her fan base dramatically as well,” the outlet added.

In 2020, Taylor Swift showed her support for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign by endorsing him. Her single post on Instagram resulted in 35,000 new voter registrations.

Swift’s efforts to raise funds for Biden could potentially result in millions of dollars being collected for the campaign.

Other Democratic figures have also recognized the potential benefits of having Swift rally behind the cause. Governor Gavin Newsom of California encouraged Swift to become more involved with Biden’s campaign following her get-out-the-vote post on Instagram.

Vice President Kamala Harris is touring nationwide to engage young voters instead of relying on celebrity endorsements.

In a recent interview, she praised Generation Z as a “terrific generation.”

“It’s a lived experience for them,” Harris said. “They’ve only known the climate crisis. Most of them have endured active shooter drills between kindergarten and 12th grade. During the height of their reproductive years, they saw the court take away an essential right for them.”
