Liberal Pop Icon Turns On Nancy Pelosi

Liberals were again whining following special elections this week in Georgia and South Carolina.

Following what was described as the most expensive House race in history, liberal Jon Ossoff was defeated by pro-life conservative Karen Handel in Georgia’s 6th district.

And no one was surprised by the backlash from Democrats and liberal Hollywood, who just cannot accept that Americans do not want their kind of leadership.

One celebrity in particular has been politically vocal against President Trump.

But this time, she turned on one of her own in her disappointment with the special election results.

Breitbart News reported:

Pop icon and political critic Cher took to Twitter Wednesday to question whether Democratic House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi may have played a role in Jon Ossoff’s defeat in his race against Republican Karen Handel for Georgia’s sixth district congressional seat on Tuesday.

In a post Wednesday afternoon, the 71-year-old “Believe” singer said that unlike the Olympics, there are “no medals” given to second-place finishers in congressional elections. Ossoff, a 30-year-old documentary filmmaker-turned-Democratic politician, lost to Handel Tuesday night in a closely-watched election that many observers characterized as a referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency thus far.

Cher joined several House Democrats in questioning Pelosi’s leadership following Ossoff’s loss. The 76-year-old California Democrat easily fended off a challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan to retain her leadership position in November.

The pop star was responding to tweets about the election results, particularly comments by Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA).

Moulton began a Twitter discussion placing blame on Nancy Pelosi for the loss in Georgia.

He warned that Dems better change their strategy if they are to come back in the 2018 midterms.

Cher was in agreement with other Democrat leaders who blame the party’s current position on Pelosi’s lackluster leadership.

Breitbart continues:

“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) told Politico Wednesday. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons.”

“Nancy Pelosi was all over this race in Georgia,” Ungar said. “Every TV ad coming from the Republicans was Nancy Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi.”

Cher has been an outspoken opponent of Trump. The singer regularly uses her Twitter account to criticize the president, often replacing Trump’s name with a toilet emoji.

But the Grammy-winner has also been critical of the Democratic Party. In an interview with Billboard last month, Cher blamed the party leadership for being out of touch with American voters.

“The Democrats f***** up so bad in their message, and how old [the leadership] is,” she said. “You’ve got to pray that old people die before young people can get involved with the party.”

Cher is certainly not the only celebrity lashing out against conservatives in recent years.

But what makes her political commentary different is that she is in her seventies — not the typical whining Hollywood type lashing out against conservatives with their youthful idealism.

Cher has closely followed politics throughout her long career, so throwing Nancy Pelosi under the bus for the ills of the Democrats takes on more weight with her fans.

For once, maybe a Hollywood type like Cher is right about one thing — it is time for Nancy Pelosi to go.
