Pentagon denies Fox News conspiracy theory about Taylor Swift being a secret “psy-op” used by them to influence public opinion

The Pentagon has dismissed claims that Taylor Swift is a ‘psyop’ working with the Biden administration.

The federal agency has now pushed back at the outlandish claims raised by Fox News’ Jesse Watters on Tuesday.

‘But that does highlight that we still need Congress to approve our supplemental budget request as Swift-ly as possible so we can be out of the woods with potential fiscal concerns,’ she added in another nod to the popstar’s hits.

‘Have you ever wondered why or how she blew up like this?’ he asked, implying the government orchestrated Swift becoming the biggest celebrity of 2023 so she could be used as a covert Democratic Party agent.

‘Well, around four years ago, the Pentagon psychological operations unit floated turning Taylor Swift into an asset during a NATO meeting.

‘What kind of asset? A psyop for combatting online misinformation.
