Twitter Loses It Over Senators Quoting Taylor Swift Songs At Ticketmaster Hearing

Twitter users lost it over videos of U.S. Senators from both sides of the political aisle quoting lines from Taylor Swift songs during the Ticketmaster hearing on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

The Senate Judiciary Committee included Minnesota Democrat Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Connecticut Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal along with Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee, quoting lyrics from the 33-year-old pop singer’s long catalog of songs.

Klobuchar said during the hearing, “To have a strong capitalist system, you have to have competition. You can’t have too much consolidation. Something that unfortunately for this country — as an ode to Taylor Swift, I will say — we know all too well.”

“To have a strong capitalist system, you have to have competition. You can’t have too much consolidation,” Sen. Klobuchar says of Ticketmaster.

While another shared in response to hearing Sen. Lee, “The Ticketmaster hearing is absolutely wild. I can’t believe I just heard a U.S. Senator say ‘karma’s a relaxing thought, aren’t you envious that for you it’s not’ in a tone of voice that makes it so clear he has not listened to this song even once.”

“This literally so funny,” one person tweeted. Their post included a clip of Blumenthal stating that “Ticketmaster had the temerity to imply that the debacle involved in pre-ticket sales was Taylor Swift’s fault because she was failing to do too many concerts. And may I suggest … Ticketmaster ought to look in the mirror and say, ‘I’m the problem. It’s me.’”

This literally so funny. Ticketmaster shaking when republicans and democrats are united in this

They were clearly not the only ones who couldn’t believe what they were hearing in the cringeworthy moments.
