Singer Taylor Swift is blasting Sen. Marsha Blackburn as “Trump in a wig,” saying the Tennessee Republican “represents no female interests.” The comments from Swift come from her new Netflix documentary “Miss Americana,” released Friday.
The performer condemned 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.”
“She gets to be the first female senator in Tennessee, and she’s Trump in a wig,” she adds. “She represents no female interests. She won by being a female applying to the kind of female males want us to be in a horrendous 1950s world.”
Blackburn’s office didn’t respond to ITK’s request for comment about Swift’s remarks, but provided a statement the lawmaker issued Thursday, just hours before “Miss Americana’s” premiere.
