After Taylor Swift said she wouldn't vote for Sen. Marsha Blackburn back in 2018, the Tennessee Republican is firing shots back in a new interview.
While speaking with Breitbart News this week (video below), Blackburn directly addressed the ongoing tiff between her and the global pop superstar. During the 2018 U.S. midterm elections, Swift made a rare political statement on Instagram to denounce Blackburn, saying her voting record "appalls and terrifies me" and endorsing Democratic candidates Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper while encouraging the Swifties to make their voices heard and vote. The effect on voter registration was remarkable: Vote.org reported a huge spike of 65,000 newly registered voters in the first 24 hours after the singer's Oct. 7 post.
In her 2020 Netflix documentary Miss Americana, a tearful Swift is seen criticizing Blackburn's policies and how she treats marginalized people, even calling her "Trump in a wig."
