Shania Twain Says She Would Have Voted for Trump, Then Apologizes
"Multi-platinum country-pop star Shania Twain is walking back a statement she made in an interview with The Guardian in which she said she would have voted for Donald Trump were she an eligible voter.
The Canadian songstress, in an interview over the weekend to promote her first album in 15 years, said:
`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- - - - - -t. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?`"
I am resigned to the fact that the Russians interfered with our elections with impunity, and without suffering any meaningful payback from the Trump administration.
But we have to draw the line somewhere, and I simply will not abide any interference in American politics by a Canadian.
Shania Twain doesn`t know how blessed she is to live in a democracy with a Prime Minister who is admired and respected in Canada and throughout the world. God only knows how many Americans have fled to Canada to flee Trump`s incompetent and corrupt administration.
Twain made her controversial statement in support of her first new album in 15 years, that`s no way to publicize an album. That Don`t Impress Me Much!
Twain`s apologies are too little too late; I volunteer to spank her until she utters a sincere apology.
