The INSIDER Summary:
• Taylor Swift hasn’t told anyone who she supports for president.
• The sweater she wore while waiting in line to vote seems to indicate she voted for Hillary Clinton.
• It looks like a famous sweater Clinton once wore.
On Election Day, there are plenty of lingering questions. But for some people, Donald Trump’s tax returns and Hillary Clinton’s emails take a back seat to who is Taylor Swift voting for?
Swift’s squad members, like Karlie Kloss, are generally pretty open about their support for Clinton. But Swift herself hasn’t openly supported any of the presidential candidates (or any of the down-ballot ones, for that matter). As the theory goes, she doesn’t want to alienate any Hillary-hating fans. And at the same time, her archnemesis Katy Perry is an enthusiastic Clinton surrogate.
Swift broke her silence about the presidential election with an Instagram post showing that she’s voting. That’s all the information she’s given us (so far).
But wait, is it actually a cryptic clue?
“Headed to Denver to meet some of my favourite Nasty Women in support of @hillaryclinton! Let’s do all we can in the days that remain. [Right now] I’m paying tribute in my @lpathelabel cold shoulder sweater,” Dunham said.
Now, some people are arguing that it’s possible Swift’s sartorial choice could actually expose her true political leanings and reveal that she’s #withher, including Verge writer Kaitlyn Tiffany, one of the first people to make the sweater connection:
Of course, Swift has a highly controlled public image so we may never know who she actually voted for. But one thing is certain — America is dying to know.
