Clueless. Cher is debating ‘whether all oppressed people should be allowed refuge in America’.
So, OK, like right now, for example, the Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, “What about the strain on our resources?”
But it’s like when I had this garden party for my father’s birthday, right? I said RSVP because it was a sit-down dinner. But people came that, like, did not RSVP. So I was, like, totally buggin’. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, squish in extra place settings. But, by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier!
And so, if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians.
And in conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say “RSVP” on the Statue of Liberty.
