Laura Ingraham mocks Taylor Swift after Blackburn victory: ‘#Shakeitoff’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked Taylor Swift after the candidate the singer backed in the Tennessee Senate race lost.

“Hey @taylorswift13, haters gonna hate. #shakeitoff,” Ingraham tweeted, referring to one of Swift’s top hits.

{mosads}Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) beat out former Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) for Sen. Bob Corker’s (R-Tenn.) seat, likely destroying Democrats’ chances of taking the Senate. 

Swift posted Tuesday that she voted for Bredesen and endorsed him last month. It was a rare political stance for the singer.

“As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” Swift wrote.

“I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives.”
