Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley Figure Out ‘Why Democrats Lost the Senate’ in Soon-to-Be Viral CMA Opener


"All kidding aside, we have some serious things to talk about here tonight."

Country music superstars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley opened up Wednesday's Country Music Awards by making jokes about Ebola, Taylor Swift, President Barack Obama, the Democrats and even the Secret Service.

The duo first roasted the "feisty nurse in Maine" who refused to comply with a quarantine order while being monitored for Ebola.

"Quarantine, quarantine, quarantine, quarantine — what part of stay inside don't you understand?" Underwood sang.

"Right now I really hope she's not a country fan," Paisley added.

The country stars then turned their attention to Taylor Swift, who recently abandoned country music and released a pop-music album.

"All kidding aside, we have some serious things to talk about here tonight ... we recognize people around the world are worried," Underwood said. "Of course we are talking about Post-Partum Taylor Swift Disorder — or as it's more commonly known, PPTSD."

Paisley then moved to take a jab at the Democrats.

"Why isn't our government doing something about this?" Paisley said. "I'll be the first one to say it: President Obama does not care about Post-Partum Taylor Swift Disorder."

"I'm pretty sure that's why the Democrats lost the Senate," Underwood quipped as the audience erupted in laughter.

"But, Brad, how do you know the president doesn't care?" she followed up.

"Because I asked him," he answered.

"When did you ask the president?" she pressed.

"Yesterday. I jumped the White House fence, ran across the lawn — the door was wide open," he said.
