Last night, Nikki Haley had the gall to express her displeasure at the “Fire and Fury” Grammys stunt. Can you believe she wouldn’t fawn over a bit glorifying a book written by a guy who’s been helping to spread a completely baseless rumor that she’s had an affair with Donald Trump?
I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.

Much like New York Times reporter Dave Itzkoff, actor Don Cheadle didn’t seem to think Haley had a legitimate beef — and he told her so:
sit down, girl. you’re drunk … https://t.co/WUcgKvw515
— Don Cheadle (@DonCheadle) January 29, 2018
Wow, Don. Classy!
You're disrespectful and uninformed.

Calling a grown woman “girl” is sexist. Just an FYI-

Boy, that’s a pretty sexist way to talk to a woman that happens to be the UN ambassador for the USA
— Brice Herrin™ (@Tigers930410) January 29, 2018
That seems sexist with a tinge of racism.

Sit down “Girl”. Wow. Imagine if a Republican celebrity said that to a Democrat woman of color.

How's this even remotely okay? "Sit down boy"

Pretty sure if I said “sit down, boy” I’d be a racist. But I guess Hollywood still follows the Weinstein Rule: it’s not sexist if you’re a Democrat. https://t.co/lrEsRWDBNG

Yep. The rule still stands.
sit down, dude, you’re a sexist bully.

Another progressive champion of women.

But, but his profile says #resist
— Very Stable Ginger (@realchrishynes) January 29, 2018
Oh, he’s resisting, all right. Resisting the urge to act like a real man.
women not allowed to have a voice in Don Cheadle's world? Nobody is surprised by that

Don's hatred of powerful women is something to behold. Time for a journo to start speaking to his former co-stars about his behavior.
