Cher Would Rather Eat Cow Tongue Than Say a Single Nice Thing About Trump (Video)
Let’s be clear: Cher hates Donald Trump. She regularly calls him an idiot on Twitter and once promised to move to Jupiter if he ever got elected president. (Presumably, she couldn’t find a ride.) She despises him so much that during a recent Cher James Corden tete-a-tete, she couldn’t think of a single nice thing to say about him, even when challenged to do so in Corden’s gross-out game “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.”
For those unfamiliar with the game, it involves the late night talk show host and a celebrity asking each other revealing questions. For example, Corden asks Cher to name her top four lovers of all time, and Cher asks Corden to name the drunkest person at the Royal Wedding. See? Fun.
If you don’t “spill your guts” and answer the question, you must “fill your guts” with a disgusting food. On the menu this time are cow tongue, dried caterpillars, scorpions, a thousand-year-old egg (basically a fermented egg common in Asian cuisine), Stargazy pie (a Cornish pie dish with sardine heads sticking out of it), haggis (a Scottish pudding made of sheep heart, liver and lungs), a deep fried candy bar and a smoothie made of fish, French fries and peas — yum.
The two go back and forth naming the disgusting food that they’d like the other person to eat and then asking hard questions. Cher asks Corden: Out of Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and Mariah Carey – three divas who have sung on Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” segments — which one he’d prefer never to sing with again.
For the final question, Corden asks Cher to say one nice thing about Trump or eat a big, gross-looking cow tongue (which we hear tastes like bland beef). Grab the salt and pepper, Cher!
Here’s the Cher James Corden game of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts”:
We have a hard time thinking of anything nice to say about Trump either, particularly because Trump has been downright toxic to LGBTQ Americans, and trans people especially. His litany of offenses includes trying to reinstate a ban on transgender military members, appointing numerous anti-LGBTQ judges and an anti-LGBTQ Supreme Court Justice, rescinding Obama-era memos protecting trans students, sending an anti-trans activist to a U.N. meeting on women’s rights, supporting a narrowly defeated bill that would’ve defunded medical coverage for transgender soldiers and killing a rule placing transgender people in prisons matching their gender identity.
He’s fared no better on LGBTQ rights in general by starting a so-called civil rights division to ensure that medical professionals won’t have to serve LGBTQ people, failing to recognize LGBTQ Pride month, dismantling the U.S. government’s HIV advisory board, removing any LGBTQ information from the White House website, dropping questions about LGBTQ health from the nation’s largest health survey, deleting public information about an American law forbidding anti-LGBTQ healthcare discrimination, proposing a health care plan that would’ve been disastrous for LGBTQ people, signing a law that endangers LGBTQ sex workers and writing in favor of anti-gay discrimination at public businesses.
