“Washington, D.C. – Joni Ernst, the Republican Senate candidate said in an interview with Fox News that she was “greatly offended” by the comment that her looks play a huge role in her surging political campaign. The comment was made by Tom Harkin, a retiring Senator and an Iowa Democrat.
““I really think it’s unfortunate that Harking and a great majority of his party believe that you can’t be a real woman just because you’re female; again, I am greatly offended about that”, Ernst stated during her interview.
“The Republican candidate was bothered by the statement of the retiring Iowa Democrat Harkin, who said at a local Democratic event: “I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
In another interview with Newslo, just moments ago, Joni Ernst said “I know darn well what the people are thinking, and I really don’t like being compared to Taylor Swift, of all people. But, the real problem lies with people like Harkin, who can only dream about having a real woman like me. In fact, I might just throw a bikini contest to celebrate the Republican victory after I annihilate Bruce (Braley, the Democratic Rep.)”.
“And while we’re on the subject, just for the record – my boobs are way bigger than Taylor’s; if Mr. Harkin doesn’t believe that, I’ll just flash him during the bikini contest and make him eat his heart out. I’ve never actually though about using my appearance to my advantage, but there’s an idea. I might even “persuade” Tom (Harkin) to change parties. Heck, I’ll even make sure I wear a red bikini just for that”, Ernst jokingly added.
