Shania Twain Issues Apology After Saying She Would Have Voted for Trump

Shania Twain is speaking out after saying she would have voted for Donald Trump in an interview with The Guardian.

The “You’re Still The One” Canadian singer issued a statement on Sunday (April 22) to clarify her thoughts.

“I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context,” she said.

“I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President. I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician. My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.”

    I thought her first interview was a bit strange. She said she was physically, psychologically and sexually abused as a child, so why would she support someone like this POTUS?

    That was fast.

    I understand what she is saying. Trump sounded like an uneducated drunk uncle and lots of people have those so he was RELATABLE in that sense, but if you took time to look at what he was actually saying and the enormous amount of things he was NOT saying then you would know better not to vote for him.

    Because he isn’t married to Bill Clinton.

    This is why Canadians shouldn’t comment on other countries politics unless they study the country.

    Wait, she’s Canadian and lives in neutral Switzerland. Shhhhhh.

  • Nova

    I read another article where she said that Trump seemed honest. That’s funny. She really does not have a clue.

  • sammyleesays

    Liberals are hypocritical. If she would have voted for Hilary then this would go the other way. It is her choice, her life and should not be talked down about. The entertainment industry is so one sided. Unless you think their way you are unwelcomed in their world. So stupid. Team Shaina!

    That’s Uncle Bernie,NOT President Trump

  • Brenda Brawley

    President Trump is cleaning up Obama’s mess,I like her honestly.

  • Brenda Brawley

    There are SEVERAl canadian’s that like Trump.

  • Brenda Brawley

    Kennedys, Bill Clinton come to mind while they WERE in office.President Trump hasn’t had a fling in the WH as of yet.

  • Frankie

    Oh spare us, Brenda. Trump is an ignorant, racist, misogynist P.O.S. It’ll take years to undo the stench of his so-called “presidency”. Hopefully he’ll be in jail soon.

  • Brenda Brawley

    Bill & Don are the same age, Bill looks like a million miles of bad road. Being BAD doesn’t look good on Bill. Being good works well on Don.

  • deusexmachina

    PULEASE You guys are the one to talk about Hypocrisy? I remember when you all cried and was disgusted with Bill Clinton having a consented blowjob, Then you voted for this present Dung in the white house who hook up with porn stars and ex playboy bunnies while his wife is pregnant, and brag about grabbing women’s pussies that is the VERY DEFINITION OF A HYPOCRITE. At least the Liberals didn’t peddle family values and then turn around and and do the opposite.

  • Nova

    I see you are a primitive being like Trump. Time for a fact check, ostrich.

  • Nova

    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha . Oh my.

  • MaisyDaisy

    EVERYONE who voted for the hoar monger should apologize. He is a monstrosity who has made a mockery of the presidency and the US.

  • Nova

    Thank you Brenda for the laughs.

  • GP

    The amount of hate being shown just because she doesn’t agree with other people’s opinion is ridiculous. Worst is being forced to apologize for her honest personal opinion. This is the type of behavior that’s going to get Trump re-elected.

  • imnobody

    I have zero respect for people who apologize because they got backlash for voicing their opinion.

  • MaisyDaisy

    Thank you, Brenda, for displaying the high level of education the typical Trump supporter demonstrates. There are no less than four errors in your short post. I assume you have a car up on bricks in front of your rusting double-wide and an AR15 laying across the coffee table. Am I right?

  • MaisyDaisy

    What mess is he cleaning up? How? Be specific. (Also, your post here contains two errors.)

  • Niko the Farmer

    Never cared about Clinton’s BJ. I voted for him in ‘96. I also voted for Obama in ‘08.

    In retrospect, they were two very big mistakes.

    I don’t care about any of the sexual escapades. Trump is doing right by the country and that is all that matters to me.

    I do wish people would be more honest. Trump never “bragged” that he grabbed women in a certain place. He said some women in Hollywood are gold-diggers to a point where they’ll even let celebrities grab them. In light of the Harvey Weinstein revelations, it appears he was absolutely right.

  • Effy

    Conservatives are such poor sports. You all call Liberals or anyone who doesn’t agree with you names, which proves most Republicans failed to receive anything past a 3rd grade education.

  • Keyne

    One and the same person:

    The Slinky Dinky = Exterminator = Modern Killer Magazine = Movie Check Report = Americaworld One = Celebrity News Today = Anthony S. = The Killingator = Chicago = Beverly Hills = Fascinator X = sammyleesays = Utah, America = Orator = Peter F. = Alien Killer = Allory

    What an embarrassing upvoting rage that just was.

  • Sweet Cheeks

    I don’t get how women could vote for him. He has a long history, 40 plus years of racist and discriminatory behavior in business. He’s abusive every day on Twitter, especially toward women. The allegations against him are mounting on a daily basis.

  • SquidBillie

    I’m not a big Trump fan, but he WAS a candidate, and people had the right to vote for him. She shouldn’t have to apologize.

    Aww, poor you under moderation. Nobody wants to hear about a Clinton/Trump sxx fantasy…lol.

    Ok. Whatever that means.
