The mostly old, all-white male National Republican Senatorial Committee attacks “multimillionaire pop star Taylor Swift” after she endorsed Tennessee Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper.
The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein tweeted: NRSC press release: “If you haven’t heard, multimillionaire pop star Taylor Swift came down from her ivory tower to tell hardworking Tennesseans to vote for Phil Bredesen.”

So, let me get this straight….Kanye West didn’t descend from his Ivory Tower to make a fool of himself backing Donald Trump? Better yet, remember billionaires Sheldon Adelson and the Koch Brothers who are backing the GOP?
Reaction on Twitter:
Can someone explain if a tower is a good or bad thing?
I was under the impression NRSC considers TRUMP TOWER a good thing
So is the issue that this fictional tower belongs to self-made female recording artist & superstar @taylorswift13? https://t.co/2dgyaIC6YN

Kanye West – Kid Rock – Ted Nugent – John Rich – Gene Simmons – Wayne Newton – Aaron Carter – Loretta Lynn – Azealia Banks – on and on. @GOP @NRSC your lack of self-awareness is staggering. https://t.co/n5do9qrK5I

Wait. I thought multimillionaires were job creators who deserve massive tax cuts and should have the final say on all policies because they earned their wealth. Has the NRSC changed its position? I'm confused. https://t.co/KT7Ax3MpJY

Here NRSC, let me fix this for you:
Self-made millionaire Tennessean pop star Taylor Swift tells hardworking Tennesseans who she will vote for.
Also, she has 112,000,000 followers https://t.co/ptxh9Ncseq

Per NRSC: Look at this uppity woman. Um, she filed suit over being groped, by a man who denied it. Won too. Probably feels like she has a reason to go public at this time. #GOPHatesWomen
