Have we not told y'all this *literally* a million times?!
You know better than anyone how much we LOVES our girl Taylor Swift — but we've been extremely disappointed that the 27-year-old hasn't used her ginormous platform to be a voice in politics, especially in Donald Trump's America!
We're clearly not the only ones feeling a little frustrated as actress Lola Kirke (Lena Dunham bestie Jemima Kirke's sister) just called out the singer, and other silent celebs, for not offering "more help to grassroots movements with their power."
The Mistress America star even goes as far to say T.Swift "may as well have voted for Trump" considering her lack of action!

The 26-year-old vented to Vogue about the importance of public figures taking responsibility for using their voices:
"I mean, in this fucking day and age, yeah, I do. For me, it's really important to elevate voices and causes that don't get as much attention with whatever attention I get. I totally understand why some people won't do that; I definitely think that there are certain celebrities who really could offer more help to grassroots movements with their power—and don't."
"Like Taylor fucking Swift, who may as well have voted for Trump, as far as I'm concerned, by not doing anything."
When the interviewer also pointed out Tom Brady's lack of effort, Miz Kirke went on:
"I think that the age of celebrity is so confusing and weird, and everyone is a celebrity, and everyone has this weird power that they got because they know how to take a picture of themselves … You can imbue everything you're doing with meaning. I believe that life is meaningful and I believe there are things that are important that are not getting the attention that they deserve."
"It's pretty clear right now that there's a lot surrounding reproductive rights that is pretty insane. Environmental issues . . . I don't even know where to begin on that one. Basically, human rights at large are in jeopardy, and as somebody that is part of celebrity culture, I would rather not be an agent in detracting from that attention. I would rather not be part of the smokescreen that makes everybody think, 'Eh, it's fine,' because it's not fine."
She isn't wrong!!
