One of Cher‘s latest statements about the election was truly out of this world.
“I’m gonna have to leave the planet,” the iconic star said when asked about what she will do if Donald Trump wins the presidential election during her hosting gig at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser at the Park on Thursday, according to Page Six.
Cher went on to discuss how Trump supporters have called her a “libtard,” but explained that she grew up poor before her mother married a “really rich guy.” She also talked about her appreciation for young voters, and the importance of their voices in this election.
“Young people with fresh ideas and . . . energy is what we need,” she said. “We’re fading. Not fast, but we’re fading.”
On Sunday, Cher addressed her followers on Twitter with several passionate, caps lock-heavy statements about the election.
“FBI DIRECTOR“COMEY”HAS JEOPARDIZED DEMOCRACY. HE ACCUSED A U.S CITIZEN,OF A CRIME,BUT SAYS HIS REASONS4 ATTACKING HER“MAY NOT B PERTINENT,” she wrote in the first of a series of tweets.
“A DIRECTOR OF FBI HAS NEVER, IN HISTORY OF MADE A CHARGE,W/OUT KNOWING “THE EVIDENCE”THEN FBI “LEAKS“INFO 2GOP WING-NUT RUDY GIULIANI,” she wrote in her second tweet posted soon after.
And after news that the investigation of Clinton’s emails had ended on Sunday afternoon, Cher took to Twitter to share her strong opinions about the case.
In the evening, the singer shared another message, writing “Watched Hillary Speak at Rally in Ohio.LeBron Was with her.He Seems a Kind Man … Overjoyed FBI Has Stopped Witch Hunt #IMWITHHER.”
And while her thoughts on Trump have certainly reached a boiling point, Cher has been denouncing the Republican presidential candidate long before his run for the White House. In 2012, she dumped on Trump after an online petition demanded Macy’s sever ties with the billionaire businessman in the wake of his controversial “birther” views.
“I’ll NEVER GO TO MACY’S AGAIN ! I didnt know they sold Donald Trump’s Line! If they don’t care that they sell products from a LOUDMOUTH RACIST CRETIN,WHO’D LIE LIKE ‘HIS RUG’ TO GET SOME CHEAP PRESS ! I CANT BELIEVE MACY’S THINKS HE’S THE RIGHT ‘MAN’ 2 REPRESENT THEIR NAME !” she tweeted at the time.
In his response, Trump said, “@cher – I don’t wear a ‘rug’ – it’s mine. And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work.”
“@cher should spend more time focusing on her family and dying career!” he said in another tweet.
