TN - Marsha Blackburn Crushes Bredesen - Pundits Hope Taylor Swift Can ‘Shake It Off’

The mainstream media went all ‘fire and fury’ about a month ago when global pop star Taylor Swift decided to finally dip her toes in the political waters and claimed that she would be voting for Democrat Phil Bredesen in her home state of Tennesee and urged her 120 million followers on Instagram not to elect Republican Marsha Blackburn.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn will defeat former Democratic Governor Phil Bredesen to replace retiring GOP Senator Bob Corker. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Fox News (@FoxNews) <a href="">November 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

Miss Swift also explained why she was finally speaking out about her political views, saying: “In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.”

Her endorsement did not do any wonders for the Democrat though, as Ms Blackburn significantly crushed her opponent. Early results showed her leading by almost 20 points but the gap narrowed to about 10 points by the end of the night.

Political pundits on the Republican side were quick to start trolling Miss Swift, with Fox News host Laura Ingraham immediately reminding the pop star about her endorsement of Phil Bredesen. She stated on Twitter: 'Hey, Taylor Swift, haters gonna hate,' Ingraham tweeted. She added the hashtag '#shakeitoff.'

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Hey <a href="">@taylorswift13</a>, haters gonna hate. <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#shakeitoff</a></p>&mdash; Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) <a href="">November 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

'Shake it Off' of course refers to Miss Swift’s biggest hit from 2014. The lyrics to the song also include the phrase 'haters gonna hate.'

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Cory Gardner said in a statement Tuesday evening after it had become clear the GOP would win that “Marsha Blackburn demonstrated the type of conservative leadership Tennessee voters want in Washington.”

“We want to congratulate Senator-elect Blackburn on a hard-fought victory and look forward to her working in the U.S. Senate to confirm conservative judges, push pro-growth reforms and advocate for policies that improve the lives of all Tennesseans.”

Add Bredesen to the long list of bad men that Taylor Swift picked. I can't wait for the song Tay-Tay must be writing today.
