After her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday night, Taylor Swift used her mic time to ask lawmakers to get a move on with the Equality Act–and they were listening.


During the Entertainment Report on the
Rock and Fox Show this morning, I shared the statement released by the White House Press Secretary on Tuesday after Taylor's performance Monday night. It reads: 
"The Trump administration absolutely opposes discrimination of any kind and supports the equal treatment of all; however, the House-passed bill in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights.”

The Equality Act would add federal protections to the Civil Rights Act for LGBTQ community when it comes to education, housing, employment, public accommodations, jury duties and service, federal funding, and also credit.

Although the statement may not have been what Taylor may have wanted it to be, they did respond after her speech Monday night. If you would like to add your signature to this bill, you can do so right here.
