The liberal pop singer Taylor Swift got 'political' on Friday after she responded to the rioting in the Democrat-run city of Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, who died after being forcibly restrained by a police officer.

Predictably, Swift opted for the Democrat playbook when weighing on the riots, blaming President Donald Trump.

Swift responded to Trump's tweet condemning the rioters:

“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence?”

“‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’???” she posted, in response to Trump’s tweets condemning the violence, which was later flagged on Twitter for “glorifying violence.”

“We will vote you out in November,” Swift vowed, tagging Trump’s personal Twitter handle.

Trump tweeted in response to the riots and looting Minneapolis:

“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis,” he said.

“A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.”

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” POTUS continued. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty, and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

But not all celebrities had such a closed-minded view as Swift.

Rapper Lil Wayne expanded his thinking on the incident, and instead of buying into the race divide and police hating, he asked his fans not to make his death about race.

Wayne said Friday that folks need to be “very specific” when reacting to perceived injustices.

He warned not to blame an “entire race” or the “entire force.”

Wayne, real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., revealed that he’s unimpressed by “hashtag” and “t-shirt” activism if it doesn't actually help the person you’re claiming to get justice for.

Other celebrities like NFL player Colin Kaepernick and rapper Cardi B defended the rioting.

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick tweeted Thursday.

“The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”

Cardi B tweeted:

“They looting in Minnesota, and as much as I don’t like this type of violence it is what it is."

“Too much peaceful marches, too much trending hashtags and NO SOLUTIONS! The people are left with NO CHOICE.”

Minneapolis Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins said that while people “every absolute right to be angry,” they should refrain from harming "the very communities that you say that you are standing up for.”

“We need peace and calm in our streets, and I am begging you for that calm,” said Jenkins.
