The "Daily Show" host praises the pop star for getting involved and mocks POTUS for his "weird way" of expressing displeasure.
"One thing we've come to expect around elections is celebrities getting involved, and these days, a celebrity voicing their political opinion is like climate change -- it's happening every day, and most people ignore it. But there are still some celebrities who simply cannot be ignored," the "Daily Show" host said Tuesday before citing Kanye West's very public endorsement of President Donald Trump.
"Democrats said, 'Hey, Republicans, I'ma let you finish, but we just got one of the best endorsements of all time,'" the comedian joked before turning his sights to Swift, who over the weekend took to Instagram to endorse Democrats running in Tennessee and criticize GOP Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn. The pop star also urged her fans to get informed on the candidates and vote in November's midterm election.
"Wow. Wow," Noah said. "This -- this -- is a big deal. Because you realize, until now, Taylor Swift has stayed as far away from politics as she does from rhythm. And don't get me wrong, don't get me wrong -- I love Tay-Tay's music, but let's be honest, have you seen her dancing? Taylor Swift dances like she's making fun of how white people dance."
All jokes aside, though, Noah praised the pop star for getting involved and causing a massive surge in nationwide voter registration.
The "Daily Show" host also joked about Trump's response to Swift taking a political stance. When Trump heard the pop star was publicly backing Tennessee Democrats, POTUS told reporters he liked her music "25 percent less now."
"That's a weird way to express displeasure," Noah said. "He likes her music 25 percent less? Like, what does that even mean? Is he now just gonna cut off 25 percent of his Taylor merchandise?"
Noah concluded by urging pro-Swift conservatives who are "feeling conflicted" about her endorsement to just "shake it off."
