Rep. Michele Bachmann has some issues with Miley Cyrus’ impersonation of her on a recent “Saturday Night Live” skit.

“I’ve never done twerking in my life, and I don’t intend to take it up,” Bachmann told TheTeaParty.net during a conference call Monday after seeing the sketch.

The skit featured Cyrus dressed up as the congresswoman while singing a parody of Cyrus’ hit single “We Can’t Stop,” called “We Did Stop (the Government).” The sketch, however, focused on the government shutdown and included “SNL’s” Taran Killam playing House Speaker John Boehner.

That said, Bachmann said she is game for comedy.

“I have a good sense of humor and I never take it personally,” she said on the call, according to E! News. I’ve probably been lampooned six or seven times on Saturday Night Live and that’s all done in good fun.”
