Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift are self-proclaimed best friends and document their friendship together on Instagram.

With four intermediaries between Trump and Swift, that's five degrees of separation.

And while they’re quick to tout each other's careers, neither Swift nor Kloss talk politics during interviews.

Trump on the other hand hasn’t been shy in the past about singing Swift’s praises. During an interview with Yahoo in November, Trump was asked to play a game of word association. When asked about Taylor Swift, the typically loquacious candidate had one word: “terrific.”

How many degrees from Hillary Clinton to Taylor Swift? One of her surrogates, Lena Dunham, happens to be another member of Taylor Swift’s posse -- so only two.
