Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) responded to Cher by quoting one of her most famous songs after the singer and longtime critic of President Trump questioned California’s sanctuary policies, saying the state already “can’t take care of its own.”
“I got you, babe,” tweeted Gaetz, a close ally of Trump. He was referencing the song of the same name by Sonny and Cher from 1965.
