Shania Twain is Canadian, which means she can’t vote in American elections. She is also a country music star, which means she has a broad audience and has not been granted any particular responsibility to have well-formed opinions on politics, let alone the politics of a country in which she cannot vote.

Of course, if you hate Trump, everyone’s opinion matters, no matter how insignificant their role in American politics may be.

Twain found this out the hard way over the weekend, as leftist caught wind that she had told The Guardian she hypothetically may have voted for Trump over Hillary in 2016.

“If she had been able to vote in the U.S. election, she would have plumped for Donald Trump, she says,”  The Guardian reported.

“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite?” she told them.

This is, of course, the reason many of the 62 million Americans who voted for Trump in 2016 favored him over Hillary.

It’s a rather innocuous comment, really, as anyone who agrees or disagrees with Trump would certainly have to agree he is distinctly more authentic than Hillary Clinton. There are robots who have replaced workers demanding $15 an hour at McDonald’s who are more authentic than Hillary.

Nevertheless, liberal twitter melted down, predictably.

“Only racists (Trump supporters)”–thanks for that clarification–“will be buying her new music from now on,” tweeted one disgruntled leftist, who was also not American.

“Wow…Shania Twain really knows how to revive her career,” quipped another twitter user. “Tomorrow night she’ll be singing ‘Still the One’ at the KKK cross burning.”

Even Shania’s four-tweet long apology to the moaning and gnashing of triggered teeth didn’t satisfy the masses, as she attempted to backpedal what she said and pointed to her own history to demonstrate her interest in “inclusiveness.”

“My answer was awkward, but it certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse [Trump],” she wrote. “I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity as my history shows.”

This did little to subdue the angry mob.

“All Shania Twain had to do is stick with her opinion and she still would have half of America rooting for her,” said Andy Lassner, the executive producer of the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “By apologizing, she seems to have done an excellent job of alienating an entire country in a single weekend,” the Hollywood producer continued.

You just can’t make these people happy!

“We’ve entered a strange new era of McCarthyism, only instead of political witch-hunts to blacklist communist actors, it’s the left who is now going after anybody who dares have an unapproved opinion,” Conservative Tribune notes.

“By smearing anyone with a personal opinion as a traitor to humanity, liberals are the ones who are becoming extremists… and that is part of why so many people were repelled by the left and voted for Trump in the first place,” they conclude.
