Taylor Swift the USPS Authority
I was sent a screenshot in a group chat over the weekend of a twitter news alert that Taylor Swift came out with a statement against how Trump is suggesting defunding and dismantling the USPS. I have no idea what is going on with mail in voting and honestly I don’t care. Should they change the voting process so close to an extremely controversial election? Who am I to say. What I want to point out is how Twitter thought it was important to push a notification to everyone, who has Twitter notification turned on their phone, a message saying that TSWIFT, the mega pop start, made a statement about mail in voting and Trumps possible decision with the USPS.
A lot to unpack here. Why is, game show host, Trump even in office? Why is mail in voting such a divisive topic? Why is Taylor Swift issuing statements on it? What does she understand about the postal service? She made more money in one year when she was 16 than most people will their entire life. Has she even been to a post office? With my experience I can say that it can be ran much better and probably all of their business is from eBay sellers and that partnership. I’ve been to USPS locations in nice areas and bad ones and they are all equally awful. Maybe a little better version of the DMV with less wait time.
Now why on earth would Taylor Swift know one parcel of information about what the USPS does, how it operates and how it could possible impact the election? Who is even listening to what she has to say? I am a TSWIFT fan, don’t get me wrong now. I have one of her tracks from her latest album on rotation as I type before you. Does that mean I’m going to take political opinions from her? No. Is she receiving intel about the USPS? Is someone feeding her information? To many questions from me, a simple financial advisor from Ohio.
