MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has expressed shock at Republicans plenty in the past, but he was especially floored on Wednesday over what his co-host and wife Mika Brzezinski described as “MAGA world” melting down over Taylor Swift.

“This cannot be real,” Scarborough said on Morning Joe about the Swift reactions.

He referred to those “melting down” over Swift “weenies” and “triggered little snowflakes.”

“Now these weenies, these little snowflakes, these triggered little snowflakes are now going after Taylor Swift. I mean, if you’re Taylor Swift you just can’t win,” Scarborough said.

He followed that up with, “Well, actually she wins all the time,” which his co-hosts agreed with.

Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, added that Swift was once targeted by the “left.”

“And now it’s the right attacking her. It’s just like, just shut up,” Scarborough said.

The MSNBC host’s reference to “the left” targeting Swift may refer to calls in 2017 for Swift to denounce any “neo-Nazi admirers” she had. A Daily Beast article from that year urged her to do so, citing neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin referring to the pop star as an “Aryan goddess.”

Swift was targeted in similar fashion by others, being dubbed a “alt-right icon” and more.

Today, however, it appears to be Republicans who are unhappy with Swift’s place in pop culture, which includes being from off her uber-successful Eras tour and being featured at most Kansas City Chiefs games. She is dating tight end Travis Kelce.

Swift has faced a wave of criticism based on reports surfacing suggesting an endorsement of President Joe Biden could be in the cards and Trump’s team are planning a “holy war” in response.

Trump campaign national press secretary Karoline Leavitt said in an interview that Swift should “stick to writing songs,” referring to the possible endorsement as a “Hail Mary pass.”

“As the Biden campaign apparently tries to come up with some way to get Taylor Swift’s endorsement, now we have to ask, does Taylor know who she is getting involved with here?” Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked on his own show

Vivek Ramaswamy meanwhile shared a conspiracy theory, suggesting that the Super Bowl next month could be fixed and it’s all a ruse to lead to a Swift endorsement.

“I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month. And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall,” he wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “Just some wild speculation over here, let’s see how it ages over the next 8 months.”
