CHER Turns On Nancy Pelosi

CHER Turns On Nancy Pelosi

Cher is an outspoken liberal celebrity — she’s known for her extremist views. But that didn’t prevent her from turning on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi after Democrats suffered yet another humiliating loss in the Georgia special election.

Democrat newcomer Jon Ossoff ran for the recently vacated seat in Georgia’s sixth district against Republican Karen Handel, both hoping to take the place of Tom Price, who Donald Trump tapped to be Health and Human Services Secretary. Ossoff was a documentary filmmaker who didn’t live in the district and the majority of the money funneled into his campaign came from outside the district. Voters, unsurprisingly, weren’t impressed. Ossoff lost.

Cher didn’t waste any time slamming Pelosi for the loss, saying there were “no medals” for second place. “Admire & respect Nancy Pelosi, but in ‘every’ race, GOP runs against her,” she tweeted.

This wasn’t the first time Cher has spoken out against Democrats. “The Democrats f*cked up so bad in their message, and how old [the leadership] is,” she said in an interview last month. “You’ve got to pray that old people die before young people can get involved with the party.”

Other Democrats joined Cher in criticizing Pelosi. “I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) said Wednesday after the election. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons.” Rick Ungar, a Democrat radio host, went so far as to say that it was time for Pelosi to “move on to the next stage in her life.” “Nancy Pelosi was all over this race in Georgia,” he said. “Every TV ad coming from the Republicans was Nancy Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi.”

Do you think Pelosi should step down?
