Bill Maher warned MAGA Republicans on Friday to back off their frenzied fury against Taylor Swift, amid strange claims that the singer and her boyfriend, Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs, are part of a vast government conspiracy to consolidate power around Joe Biden.
During a segment with NBC sportscaster Bob Costas and critic Caitlin Flanagan about Super Bowl LVII, the HBO host said that although he’d resisted speaking about Taylor Swift, even he had to admit the power she wields ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
“This is a national news story in the sense that, this is a person that could literally swing the election,” Maher said. “I don’t know what that says about this country, but, I would just say to the MAGA people, you should be very careful attacking her because this is someone who transcends parties,” he added.
