Liberals Crush Country Music Legend Shania Twain For Supporting Trump, Forcing Apology

Country music legend Shania Twain stirred some controversy over the weekend when she said that if she could have voted, she would have voted for President Trump.

Twain, being Canadian, could not have participated in the election.

Check it out, per Fox News:

Speaking in an interview with The Guardian, the country singer described her feelings on the election, noting that while Trump has his flaws, his honesty sold him on her as a candidate to lead the country.

“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,” the 52-year-old told the outlet. “If I were voting, I just don’t want bull—-. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

The comment quickly made its rounds across the internet and was met with a number of insulting comments. As Washington Examiner reports, Twain was forced to apologize for the remark and said her answer was “awkward.”

Per the report:

Country superstar Shania Twain issued an apology Sunday for saying she would have voted for President Trump in the 2016 election if she were an American citizen.

Twain, born Eilleen Regina Edwards, tweeted Trump was able to connect to “a portion of America” by speaking in an authentic way they could relate to as opposed to traditional, stilted politicians.

Her comments shouldn’t be taken as an endorsement, the Grammy Award-winner added.

Twain made the apology over social media, saying, “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,” she added.

And, “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,” she concluded.

Here’s how some people responded to the original comment and the apology:
