Counting the Degrees of Separation From GOP Front-Runner Donald Trump to Taylor Swift

How many steps it takes to link the presidential contender to the pop star.

Former reality TV star and leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has plenty of celebrity friends, but who knew? He's also connected to pop music super star Taylor Swift through his favorite campaign surrogate, daughter Ivanka Trump.

Here's how:

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump is married to investor Jared Kushner.

Jared Kushner’s younger brother, venture capitalist Joshua, is the long-time boyfriend of Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss.

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.
