Why is he saying like blonde is a bad thing?
He is saying he wants to break up with her because she is "blonde" because of a stereotype in the U.S. that girls with blonde hair are "dumb". Because he wants to be a senator, having a wife who is "blonde" could make him "look bad". Of course this is only a stereotype and not true, and is not a reason to judge someone's intelligence.
