Michele Bachmann Jumps The Sharknado!
[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]Here’s good news for the fans of fromer Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, our favorite crazy-eyed Teawinger (ex-) legislator: she’s ready from her close-up!
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Tuesday starred in a cameo for “Sharknado 3,” the cult-classic fantasy movie series featuring vicious, airborne sharks riding deadly tornadoes from the sea. The 2012 Republican presidential candidate was spotted with a film crew outside the White House, presumably before the disaster hits Washington, D.C.
“I believe they are growing in size. Congress has to take this seriously because sharknado is a real phenomenon,” Bachmann said in a scene, before excusing herself for a vote on the Hill a couple of miles away.
After several takes, which were filmed among a gathering of tourists on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Bachmann’s first — though we certainly hope not last — movie role came to an end.
Tragically, some awful union stooges almost ruined everything:
Just over a week after the watery Syfy sequel was hit by labor action, IATSE has taken its bark and bite to the nation’s capital. Shooting on Sharknado 3 in front of the White House this morning was interrupted by picketers. All the IATSE members on the Asylum produced shoot walked off the job, the union says.
“Representatives of the IATSE and its local unions will be present whenever and wherever this production attempts to film in and around Washington, D.C.,” said the union’s Dan Mahoney today.
Bachmann, of course, is a household word:
A woman who was watching the scene nearby turned to a friend and whispered, “Who is that?”
“I don’t know. I think it’s someone playing a congresswoman,” the friend responded.
And lord knows she has plenty of experience playing the part of a congresswoman – even when she supposedly was one. ‘Nuff said.
