Taylor Swift’s music not allowed in Trump’s White House, revelations from former adviser

Sharing is caring!

Although the passage of former US President Donald Trump is already combined with the past on the country’s side of Uncle Sam, his administration continues to face criticism. Whether on social media, on TV or across the streets of the country, gloomy testimonials about the former statesman’s dispositions are not uncommon. A former White House official recently spoke about what she described as some sort of unofficial Taylor Swift ban under her administration.

Olivia Troye confides in the famous Taylor Swift prohibition

Olivia Troye, former homeland security, counterterrorism and coronavirus adviser , during an interview with Chris Hayes of MSNBC, spoke about the climate of fear that was fueled under the former president Trump. A climate in particular favored by ”  verifications of social networks  ” and warnings from superiors to ”  monitor each movement “.

During the interview, the former White House official recounted an anecdote in which she reports that after a vigorous disagreement with a colleague during a tense meeting at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, she had gone to her office to calm down by putting on a piece of Taylor Swift .   According to her account, as soon as the music started ringing in the office, a male colleague knocked on the door and asked, ” Are you trying to get fired?” 

The 44-year-old says the question left her confused, to the point where she wondered if the warning came from one of the meetings with the ex-president.

 This is to say that despite what Hayes called the well-known culture of ”  the obsessive, paranoid and quasi-authoritarian application of loyalty  ” to Donald Trump’s White House, Troye was shocked by what she considered a clear example of the ”  gestapo “. Note that the latter is considered to be the set of tactics employed by the previous administration described in a recent article in Atlantic magazine .

“I don’t think (Taylor Swift) is a fan of Trump”

“  I don’t think she’s a Trump fan ,” was Olivia Troye’s colleague’s response to Taylor Swift . “And so if anyone hears that, you should really watch your back. You should be careful about this. ”

As a reminder, when Taylor Swift spoke of her support for Joe Biden ahead of the last US presidential elections, she told V Magazine : “The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes people of color deserve to be. feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies and that the LGBTQIA + community deserves to be recognized and included. Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way to start making things better is to choose leaders who are ready to deal with these problems and find ways to solve them. “

Long before election time came, Swift had remained largely apolitical. However, it wasn’t until Donald Trump’s mid-term in 2018 that she shot straight at the former reality TV star with the tweet, “We’re going to vote against you in November,” probably doing so. of him a persona non grata at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave where she is from.

Olivia Troye laments the way Trump’s White House was run

Olivia Troye resigned from the White House in August 2020 , then backed the candidacy of current President Joe Biden. Today, she is the director of the anti-Trump organization, known as The Republic Accountability Project .

By expressing her dismay at the administration of the former American president, she declares ”  It is in a way the way in which this White House has been managed “. From all of her speech, it is understandable that the former adviser deplores in many ways the allegedly tough tactics deployed by Trump’s staff to make loyalty to him effective. “  And that’s what I fear for the future of our country. »She finally confided. “

On the other hand, regarding the idea that she could have been fired for listening to Taylor Swift in the White House, Olivia Troye says it was just “amazing… I have the right to listen to music. that I want “.
