After the 2016 presidential election, anything is possible.
So when shock dresser and singer Joy Villa got a boost of encouragement from President Donald Trump after she announced her wishes to run for Congress, we weren’t surprised.
Villa sat down with FoxNews and revealed the news, complete with a few digs at current representatives who have storied and successful careers in government. She told Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt that she’s looking for places to run for office where she’s guaranteed to win, but admitted she didn’t know which state would be a fit.
“I’m looking at Florida, I’m looking at California and I’m looking at New York, because these are all places I live and work and have grown up in. There’s such a need for good congressmen, for good people in office who are putting forth the aims of the people, not just their own agenda.”
Not sure that’s how it works.
While announcing her potential run for Congress, Villa made sure to throw shade at Democratic Congresswomen like Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Frederica Wilson, claiming the three women are ruining the country. Villa hopes to follow Trump’s strategy and campaign on Republican ideals such as tax reform, immigration laws and of course, Making America Great Again.
Villa has been known as a shock dresser for the last few years. She appeared at the 2015 and 2016 Grammy Awards in see-through dress. At the 2017 Grammy Awards, Villa wore a blue dress donning President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
