Audio: Sheryl Crowe's New Song 'Woman in the White House' Offends Some Feminists

| by Michael Allen

Sheryl Crow has recorded a new song entitled 'Woman in the White House' (audio below), which calls for a woman to be president, but not all women are happy about it.

The song's lyrics include: “It’s time to clean out Capitol Hill/With a shovel and pair of high heels/because we need/a little female common sense."

“Well we like to spend money/But not money we ain’t got/And we can balance a checkbook.”

“There’ll be a lot less fussing and fighting and carrying on/There’ll be a lot more loving and listening and getting along."

A lot of liberals are outraged over this photo of Ivanka Trump. Do you see anything wrong with it?

The song has provoked some critics on the left.

ThinkProgress.org blogger Alyssa Rosenberg wrote: “It sounds like Crow’s calling for a First Housewife, a Mom In Chief, rather than a president. Leave the high heels, take the campaign finance reform.”
