Amy Duggar says she 'actually stands for family values' as star shades Jim Bob AGAIN after he promotes state Senate run
COUNTING On's Amy Duggar says she "actually stands for her family values" as the star shades Jim Bob again after he promoted his state Senate run.
This is the second time Amy threw shade at Jim Bob, as yesterday she seemed to allude to her uncle Jim Bob as she urged for "real therapy" in a Tweet.
In a follow up Tweet today, Amy wrote: "I was told last night that I should run for Senate!"
She indicated that she found the idea of running against Jim Bob humorous by adding a laughter emoji.
Amy continued: "They told me that I was bold and that I actually stand for family values and that my closet doesn't hide any skeletons! Lies or deceit!
"Haha politics are definitely not my thing but I can't help but wonder how that race would go."
Last month, Jim Bob announced his candidacy for Arkansas State Senate District 7 seat, according to Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
Following backlash for the timing of his campaign, the father of 19 revealed he won’t be backing down or staying silent in his fight for the seat.

Jim Bob was slammed as "gross" for promoting his state Senate run just days after his son Josh's guilty verdict.
The 33-year-old was found guilty in his child pornography case on Thursday.
Jim Bob, 56, took to his campaign’s Facebook page on Saturday to address Josh’s verdict.
The Counting On alum wrote: “As a father, I am heartbroken over the entire situation regarding my son, all who have been affected by it in any way, and those who have been harmed through CSAM.
"As an American, I respect our legal system and am thankful for those who serve in it.
“As a Christian, I put all of my trust in Christ in both the joyful and difficult moments of life.”
The post then took a political turn as Jim Bob wrote: “As your state senator, I promise to remain an unwavering conservative voice representing our great community in Little Rock.
“Thank you for your prayers and support.”
Shortly after the Duggar patriarch shared the post, fans rushed to the comments section to slam him as “gross.”
A number of fans shared gifs to express how they felt about the post, as one fan wrote: “Please stop talking.”
Another called the aspiring Senator a “monster,” as a third chimed in: “You sit on a throne of lies.”
A following person added: “This was a terrible idea.”
A number of people left gifs calling Jim Bob “trash,” while one posted: “You are a rude, terrible person.”
Josh was found guilty of both possessing and receiving child pornography on Thursday.
Following the verdict reading, the ex reality star was ordered straight into custody.
The former TLC star looked back at his family when the court read out that he was found guilty.
While he didn’t cry, Josh was “teary-eyed” and “solemn” as he was cuffed, according to The Sun's reporter at the scene.
Josh stopped as he was being taken away to tell his wife Anna, 33, that he “loved” her.
Jim Bob and his wife Michelle, 55, took to their family's website hours after the verdict was revealed to share a statement following Josh's guilty verdict.
The statement read: "This entire ordeal has been very grievous.
"Today, God’s grace, through the love and prayers of so many, has sustained us.
"Our hearts and prayers are with anyone who has ever been harmed through CSAM."
It continued: "In the days ahead, we will do all we can to surround our daughter-in-law Anna and their children with love and support.
"As parents, we will never stop praying for Joshua, and loving him, as we do all of our children.
"In each of life’s circumstances, we place our trust in God. He is our source of strength and refuge."
The message concluded: "Thank you for your prayers."
After Jim Bob and his wife Michelle, 55, shared a statement claiming they’ll “always love” Josh, Amy made it a point to remind her family members to promote professional help.
In a Twitter post on Saturday, the 35-year-old wrote: “Real therapy. Not just thoughts and prayers.
“Don’t get me wrong I definitely believe in the power of prayer.
“But I also believe in putting in the work towards your mental health and talking to a skilled professional counselor.”
Also, after her cousin Jana Duggar was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, Amy defended her as she said "watching multiple kids is hard."
The 35-year-old has been nothing but open with her thoughts as her famous family continues to be surrounded by controversy.
Amy took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to defend Jana following the charge, writing: “I will call out what is right and I will call out what is wrong. This couldn’t have been intentional. Thank God the child was ok and found!
“I bet you were exhausted, stressed, and just emotionally worn out.
“Watching multiple kids is hard! Bc there’s so many of them and you only have two eyes!!”
The post concluded: “It’s a very sad situation going on and my heart goes out to @janamduggar love you.”
