Cher Stoops to New Low... Praises Feminists Then Blasts Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Path 27

Do you believe in life after cultural relevancy? Cher does, although I’m not entirely convinced her strategy — namely, incessantly bashing Donald Trump, conservatives, and anything or anyone deemed in confederacy with them on social media — is strong enough.

Nevertheless, it’s worked so far for her. After all, she found herself invited to speak to the feminists assembled at the Nevada Women’s March held at at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas on Sunday. In what passes as soaring rhetoric for a B-grade pop star beyond the point of diminishing returns, Cher told the crowd about how to take back our country from the dastardly misogynists who currently control it.

And then on Monday, she attacked Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her looks and called her a b****.

Girl power, baby!

First, the speech. According to the Washington Free Beacon, Cher told the crowd of women to take charge in politics and fight the Trump administration.

“What I’m going to tell you, you know, is, it’s time to step up to the plate and deserve it and to own it,” Cher said. “If you don’t take it, no one is going to give it to you.”

We got you, babe.

“This is one of the worst times in our history, and that’s why I honestly believe that women are going to be the ones who fix it,” she told the crowd. “And that’s no bulls***. If you want a job done right, get a woman.”

Right, just like Hil– oh wait, nvm.

Do you think Cher's remarks were hypocritical?

Cher even took credit for the men who showed up for the march: “These are the guys who are raised by women like me,” she said.

All in all, it was all pretty slick, aside from the fact one gets the feeling she should have used “I’m Every Woman” as her entrance music. For all I know, she actually did. It certainly would have fit with the empowerment/anti-misogyny theme of the speech.

That speech was on Sunday. On Monday, she managed to clarify that misogyny — attacking women for their looks, their choice in dress, their religious beliefs — only applied to liberals.

I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that someone whose last mainstream cultural moment was “Burlesque” nearly a decade ago would find “Sister Wives” a timely reference, or think that attacking a woman for her looks by bringing up hyperfundamentalist breakaway Mormon sects was appropriate.

Either way, it didn’t exactly fit with the “I am woman, hear me tweet” tone of Cher’s speech. When she was called on it, Cher made absolutely clear zero craps were given on her part.

And the hypocritical beat goes on…
