Did you see Miley Cyrus’ portrayal of a twerking Michele Bachmann on SNL the other night? Well, Bachmann herself did see and she wants everyone to know she’s “never done twerking” in her life.
Reports Talking Points Memo:
Speaking on a conference call with conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries and TheTeaParty.net, Bachmann estimated that she’s been lampooned on SNL six or seven times. She assured that she has a “good sense of humor” and never takes the sketches “personally.”
The SNL parody reworked the lyrics to Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” around the government shutdown, with Cyrus and cast member Taran Killam impersonating Bachmann and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Bachmann said after the show aired, she received calls in her office from people who believed it was her appearing in the video.
“I will tell you, as a 57-year-old woman, it’s been a long time since I’ve been confused for a 20-year-old,” Bachmann said. “I’ve never done twerking in my life and I don’t intend to take it up.”
That may be the case, but we know Michele Bachmann — recently seen saying that Obama is ushering in the end times prophesized by Kirk Cameron in the bible — has corn-dogged with Rick Perry, so there’s that.
