Grimes Is Convinced Taylor Swift’s the ‘Only Presidential Candidate Who Can Unite the Country’

If Taylor Swift ever decides to run for president, Grimes is ready to join her on the campaign trail.

The Canadian musician recently took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to unofficially endorse Swift as the leader of the United States’ executive branch should the pop star ever choose to run for the job. “In many ways Taylor Swift is the only presidential candidate who can unite the country,” Grimes proclaimed Tuesday (Oct. 17).


It wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity with no prior political experience stepped into the Oval Office, as the “Oblivion” singer, who shares three children with X owner Elon Musk, pointed out. “Trump v Swift is totally occurring in a parallel universe rn,” she added.

As fun as it is to imagine a White House decorated with pictures of Swift’s cats Meredith, Olivia and Benjamin, or a fleet of Secret Service bodyguards wearing Eras Tour friendship bracelets, the “Anti-Hero” singer actually isn’t logistically able to run for the top job for the next presidential election. Besides her touring commitments planned throughout 2024, law states that the U.S. president must be at least 35 years old to hold office; Swift turns 34 in December.

Still, Grimes isn’t the first person to support a Swift presidential bid. Earlier this month, The View‘s Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former communications staffer of twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, made headlines for saying that the 12-time Grammy winner could feasibly sweep America if she ever ran for commander in chief.

“To be honest, if Donald Trump looks like he’s gonna win, she’s just gonna need to get in the race and defeat him once and for all, because she’s probably the only person who can!” Griffin said during an episode of The View: Behind the Table podcast. “This ends in one way; we are all Taylor Swift fans.”

If Swift’s ability to win over Chiefs nation and NFL fans in general recently is any indication, Griffin might just be right. Ever since seemingly striking up a romance with Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, the musician’s attendance at games has been proven to boost female viewership for the football league, and she’s become a go-to topic of conversation in sports media as of late.
