Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) sat down with Breitbart News and warned that Democrat policy-pushing pop star Taylor Swift would be the “first victim” of a top-down “Marxism” government. The video went viral, prompting far-left journalists, artists, and pundits to quickly circle the wagons around Swift, throw tantrums, and hurl personal attacks at Sen. Blackburn.
The mass triggering involves establishment media outlets, including MSNBC, as well as prominent cultural figures, such as country music star Will Hoge and tennis great Martina Navratilova. Still, industry outlets like Billboard, Variety, and TheWrap covered the story.
Some are casting Sen. Blackburn as the aggressor, but it was Taylor Swift who attacked the senator in the past, endorsing her rival in the 2018 midterms and declaring that the senator’s voting record “appalls and terrifies” her. Swift also dissed the senator, calling her “Trump in a wig” in her Netflix documentary Miss Americana.
