Pop singer Taylor Swift is continuing her scathing criticism of Republicans and conservative policies, this time calling Senator Marsha Blackburn “Trump in a wig” and claiming Blackburn “represents no female interests.”
Swift took a stand against Blackburn, endorsing her opponent in the 2018 election.
She was devastated when her candidate failed and Tennessee Voters chose to make Blackburn their Senator.
TheHill reports Taylor Swift is blasting Sen. Marsha Blackburn as “Trump in a wig,” saying the Tennessee Republican “represents no female interests.”
The comments from the once politically mum “Lover” singer come from her new Netflix documentary, “Miss Americana,” released Friday.
Swift broke her career-long virtual silence on politics in 2018, when she announced on Instagram that she was voting for former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) in his Senate bid against Blackburn, urging her social media followers to cast ballots in the midterm elections.
“I need to be on the right side of history. And if he doesn’t win, at least I tried,” The 30-year-old Grammy winner is seen telling her team in “Miss Americana.”
Despite Swift’s political push, Bredesen lost to Blackburn in the race.
In the documentary, Swift says she “can’t believe” Blackburn’s win.
The performer condemns Blackburn for voting in 2013 against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act and for her stance on LGBTQ issues.
“It’s really basic human rights, and it’s right and wrong at this point, and I can’t see another commercial and see her disguising these policies behind the words ‘Tennessee Christian values,'” Swift says in the Netflix film. “Those aren’t Tennessee Christian values. I live in Tennessee. I’m a Christian. That’s not what we stand for.”
