It was not exactly a grand summit of the minds when Randi Rhodes welcomed Cher onto her radio show on Wednesday for almost 20 minutes. First Cher worried about food stamp cuts under President Romney: "If 46 million people have food stamps and Mitt Romney said that was the first thing he was gonna do, then what do those people do?"
Rhodes snapped back: "Yeah exactly its a good question. What do they do? [Joking] They start eating each other. It is the zombie apocalypse, I am sure. I really am. "
Cher added: "Well, look, Ive been alive for 12 presidents, and Ive never seen anything like it. These people are the scariest this is the scariest time Ive ever had in my life, and like, I cant believe I cant believe were fighting the birth control thing again." Minutes later, she complained about pro-lifers: "Poor women have no choice. Theyre just going to be subjected to all these rules that these old white guys come up with. How they ever got control of our bodies I just dont understand it. How could some guy have control over my reproductive functions?"
Rhodes brought up how Sandra Fluke was called a slut by Rush Limbaugh, and Cher replied, "Who cares what he thinks, truthfully?" Then Rhodes and Cher went on a Glenn Beck-bashing jaunt:
RANDI: It just seemed to me that there's this epidemic of bullying - and that's what I, when I was looking at, you know, what was going on with you, and I was listening to Donald Trump and that mouth...and I'm thinking to myself, she's effing Cher, you're a game show host, shut up! But when I was looking at what was going on I realized, and I wanted to tell you this, just in case you're not aware of the bullying and how it really works. This was all picked up by uh Glenn Beck's website, The Blaze -- and that's where all these lunatics are coming from, okay, all they know how to do is bully people! They -
CHER: Wait a minute - didn't Glenn Beck have like several nervous breakdowns on his television show?
RANDI: I think he's still having a nervous breakdown! He was crying?
CHER: He was like - wasn't he crying and sobbing on his TV show all the time?
RANDI: He has, uh a need for, you know, uh, Prozac or something - he should follow the, the butterfly. I don't know what his deal is, but this is a guy who, you know, if given if he had his TV show he'd probably have your name up there and would drawing lines and connecting you to Woodrow Wilson! I don't understand him! I don't get it! I don't - I don't know what he was driving at, this whole episode, you know, when he got run off of the TV. I really don't know why he's such a case but he's a head case, there's no question.
CHER: You know what really is horrible too - like, you know, this is not the Republican Party of Lincoln or Nixon or Reagan the you know, - they are not the Republican Party, they are the Teapublican party, the Teapublican Party of Joe the Plumber. You know, it's -- it's insane to me and it seems like these are the most extreme people. I was watching this thing about it was a rally where they brought the outhouse -
RANDI: Yes, with the bullet holes in it!
CHER: Yeah, and - and it's - it's just amazing to me. I am in such shock about this that I can't - I keep thinking, this can't be happening and yet it is. It's like, I always thought that George Bush would be my biggest, you know, shock of my lifetime when he was President - but just seems - it seems it would be the good ol days to have him back.
RANDI: Well, I wouldn't go that far dear!
Cher also insisted Mitt Romnney's rallies have no color to them. "You look at all of the stump speeches, and where are the people Where are real people? Where are the Latinos? Where are the Asians? Where are the black people? Its like fifty shades of white behind him."
Whites aren't "real people"? It's no wonder some called Cher a racist in social media. She replied, "Im an inclusionist."
They were probably busy working. just kidding.
Glen Beck is Bullying people?!
It seems to me that it is Cher and the Liberals that are Bullying people.
They are the ones that are taking my lunch money!
They are the ones that say give me your money (taxes) or we are going to call you names and beat you up in the press. They demand that we support these social welfare programs or else. If you dont support giving your hard earned money to people that dont work you are a evil person and will be ostracized.
No ladies ( I use the term loosely) the Bullies are on the Left.
She’s still on the air? Thought she went away w/ Air America.
...especially a pathetic burned out old slut who's crowning achievement in life was getting knocked up by an Allman brother.
Cher doesn’t have any worries , she can afford food, and her own birth control medicine (she probably doesn’t need it any longer anyway), why doesn’t she retire somewhere ,and get laid by young boys and enjoy the rest of her life and stop worrying about the people that she doesn’t associate with anyway.
Why is it so necessary for these people to establish their great empathy for those people they don’t even speak to and don’t want to be bothered with.Ever see Cher date a poor man on food stamps, ever see her at the local diner or heling at the soup kitchen? Why doesn’t she volunteer at her local hospital?
My wife is Asian and she works damn hard.
I despise all these idiots. Problem with foodstamps? Why doesn’t Cher give 90% of her earnings to divert the zombie apocalypse? Keep poor people from eating each other.
Duh, I think all rats should be taxed at 75% of their income. They only want to put your money where their mouth is.
This is predictable.
A person who 90% of the country has never heard of and an old has been entertainer talk politics and unsurprisingly display their combined lack of IQ and conservatives react to it and give them the attention they seek
That cracked me up. (Guys are only half of the equation, Cher.)
But even more, why should your reprrductive functions demand I abandon my religion? You are free to do your thing, as I am free not to pay for it.
What does she have against Joe the plummer? I thought she digged guys who lay pipe!
The duo of mean spirited obtuseness!
I admit it - my political viewpoints were incomplete until Cher set me right.
After all, what rational person wouldn’t listen to a woman who has mutilated her body beyond all recognition in a bizarre attempt at ‘beauty’ and whose child has done same in the name of ‘sexual identity?’
burned out old slut
Which one or both?
The problem with Cher is that she is obviously not paying enough in taxes.
Cut a check, bitch.
After all, what rational person wouldnt listen to a woman who has mutilated her body beyond all recognition in a bizarre attempt at beauty and whose child has done same in the name of sexual identity?
Ding, ding ding and a stupendous B I N G O!!!!!
You have done hit it outta the park son.
“what rational person wouldnt listen to a woman” minus the sarc, Indeed, What rational person would listen?
I’m holding out for Carrot Top’s opinion.
I haven’t heard of Randi Rhodes since she wet on a Christmas tree at a party.
Cher was always close to my heart. Sonny and Cher once drank beer in my taverns parking lot back in the 60s. Now I think of her as nothing.
An irrelevant butch dyke yukking it up with an irrelevant botox bimbo. Who wouldn’t watch?
Oh yeah, the millions who were busy watching Glenn Beck instead.
This has-been wench is certifiable.
Cher is so OVER! She just needs to get over herself.
Come on. Its Cher. Who cares what she says about anything? Could not even raise her own daughter!
I remember in the 70s, when I was a little kid, I had a neighbor who was 12 and babysat me. He and his young siblings just got back from Hawaii, and said “We saw Sonny & Cher walking on the beach one morning. Cher is mean, ‘though. She cussed and told us to get away from her!” It’s been 40 years and I never forgot this story because I never had yet heard of an adult cussing at kids, much less one we “knew from TV”.
Two synapses in desparate search for a neuron. In radio talk, their readability level was 5 their signal strengeth (believability) was 0. Blather on ladies, you convince only your fellow comrades.
If Cher had put 1/2 the time and effort into raising her daughter as she does running around talk shows screaming about Republicans, there would have been a different outcome.
Cher and Randi - it’s like two tree stumps trying to have a conversation.
Cher has 2,500 pairs of shoes. Sell some for the Poor.
Signal Strength 0
Sonny and Cher.....the wrong half of this duo hit the tree while skiing at Lake Tahoe in January, 1998.
Poor poor cher
the teapublicans are gonna make people so poor they won’t be able to buy her music...
As I recall Chastity Bono has recounted that her mother hired a lesbian nanny who raped her, then Mom said it was a good learning experience
I guess Mom thought the kid would swing both ways, worst case, not turn herself into a massive bloated man to protect herself from sexual predators
I remember when she and Sonny had a telethon for George McGovern a few nights before the election of 1972. Sonny came around, but obviously she hasn’t.
I just dont understand it. How could some guy have control over my reproductive functions?”
She didnt say this ???
even she couldnt be stupid enough not to know about the birds andf the bees ...
John is this your work ???
