Cher: Sarah Palin is a ‘Dumb Woman,’ Jan Brewer Shouldn’t Even Handle ‘A Remote Control’
In the new issue of Vanity Fair, legendary singer Cher dished about her feelings on Sarah Palin and Arizona governor Jan Brewer. And – surprise! – she’s not a fan of either.
“I got so obsessed with [C-SPAN] that it was kind of interfering with my life,” Cher told the magazine. “Sarah Palin came on, and I thought, Oh, f---, this is the end. Because a dumb woman is a dumb woman.”
The “I Got Your Babe” singer was even harsher on Brewer, who spearheaded the recent immigration crackdown in Arizona.
“She was worse than Sarah Palin, if that is possible,” said Cher. “This woman was like a deer in headlights. She’s got a handle on the services of the state, and I would not let her handle the remote control.”
Cher has been an outspoken critic of the conservative movement in the past. In 2008, she called President Bush “the Big Divider” and said the only way she would show her face at a Sarah Palin rally would be “in my nightmares.”
In the upcoming Vanity Fair interview, which will hit newsstands on Thursday, Cher also gabbed about taxes and American-made products.
“I would be willing to pay a lot more taxes, because I make a lot more money, but I don’t want to give them more to just f--- things up more,” said the singer. “It really should fall on people like me to get together and do things to help the people in this country. If you’re not worrying about how to put food on your table, you [should be] worrying about why other people don’t have food on their table.”
“I remember a great America where we made everything. There was a time when the only thing you got from Japan was a really bad cheap transistor radio that some aunt gave you for Christmas.”
