Well, this was likely sufficiently uncomfortable for all involved, but when you’re trailing in the polls, crazy things happen.

Backstory: O’Malley explained that Katy Perry will soon be appearing at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser in Des Moines, Iowa. “So in response,” O’Malley — who, according to The Hill, has been in a Celtic folk rock band for 20 years — explained, “I thought I’d offer this up for Taylor Swift.”
Today, we’re all Candace Cameron Bure.
