Pop singer Cher attacked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance on Monday, the day after she spoke at a Women's March rally.

Cher was one of the featured speakers at the Nevada Women's March held at at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas on Sunday. In her speech, the Grammy-winner railed against President Donald Trump and urged women to be proactive in politics.

"What I'm going to tell you, you know, is it's time to step up to the plate and deserve it and to own it," she said. "If you don't take it, no one is going to give it to you."

"This is one of the worst times in our history, and that's why I honestly believe that women are going to be the ones who fix it," Cher said. "And that's no bullshit. If you want a job done right, get a woman."

Cher heralded the men who still show respect for women.

"These are the guys who are raised by women like me," she joked.

But the following night, Cher took aim at one powerful women in particular, accusing Huckabee Sanders of dressing like a polygamous "sister wife" on Twitter.

The singer brushed off criticism that her tweet was sexist, arguing that Huckabee Sanders is a "bitch."

Cher is hardly the first Trump critic to lob sexist criticism at Huckabee Sanders. A Los Angeles Times columnist apologized last year after he wrote that Huckabee Sanders "looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom" who "seems as if she'd be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes."
