Shania Twain Said She Would Have Voted For Trump in 2016. Here’s How the Left Reacted

Over the weekend, The Guardian published an interview in which legendary country star Shania Twain, a Canadian, said that if she would have been allowed to vote in the 2016 election, she would have happily voted for President Donald J. Trump.

Twain opined, “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 b*llshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?” She really got to the heart of why many Americans who were tired of “business as usual” stood behind Trump.

Of course, Twain was attacked for her perspective, but it happened at rapid speed. By Sunday afternoon, the blowback was so severe on Twitter for simply having the nerve to say she would have supported Trump, that Twain was forced to back peddle, probably at the insistence of her business team. Clearly, Twain was speaking her mind and is trying desperately to avoid a boycott of her North American tour. Twain released her fifth album last year after a 15-year hiatus and her tour starts next month.

Sadly, Twain wrote on Twitter:

I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context.

I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President.

I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician.

My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.

Of course, Twain is a Canadian citizen so she couldn’t vote for Trump. After all, we know it’s only Democrats who would commit voter fraud. This is just another reminder of how dangerous the left has become, as anyone who dares stray from liberal orthodoxy will immediately suffer serious consequences. When supporting Trump isn’t even safe for a country legend, you know something is seriously wrong.
