Calls for Pelosi to resign are growing exponentially, starting with Cher! Was the Jon ‘PeeWee Herman’ Ossoff loss all the Democrats could bear?
Cher seemed to open a can of worms with a tweet Wednesday and what followed has pushed Pelosi to defend herself in another one of her incoherent rants. (See ‘So you want me to sing my praises?‘ below.)

Democratic lawmakers en masse are blaming House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for the party’s loss in the Georgia special election runoff. Since the damaging Cher tweet, over 30 Democrat legislators have called publicly or privately for Pelosi to be removed from leadership.
This isn’t Cher’s first run at outrageous and borderline rants about President Trump: At a posh Hollywood fundraiser at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, she told the audience, “When I watch Trump I just want to blow my brains out. Or maybe not my brains. But I’m just like ‘What are you talking about? Jesus.'”
Inside the rank-and-file, members are getting restless and the call for Pelosi to depart is louder than ever. A group of her colleagues have even met privately to brainstorm on whether there was a way to force her out.
“We need leadership change,” Rep. Kathleen Rice, (D-NY), told CNN. “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”
Rep. Tim Ryan, (D-Ohio), said Pelosi is “less popular than Donald Trump in my district.”

“I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” said Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX), who supported Pelosi in her last leadership race. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons.”
The 70-year-old singer previously endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, saying:
I’ve been alive through 11 presidents and when I was young, I didn’t even know it was possible for a women to be president of the United States. I want to tell you that when Clinton ran for Senate, they asked me if I wanted to spend some time with her at a tea party gathering where she would talk to women. I was so interested in what she had to say, she was so different.
I’ve known her for a long time now and I have to say that no matter which way the political winds have blown at any moment, her moral compass has always pointed towards grace, justice for genders, and justice for sexual orientation, which is big for me. All of those things are important to me.
Of course, the idea of Hillary Clinton possessing any sort of moral compass is highly laughable. This is a woman who supports the dismemberment of fully-formed babies in the womb, lied to the families of the Americans who died in Benghazi, and laughed about helping a known rapist walk free. Moral compass my a$$…
