Cher Slams Donald Trump On “Today” Show (VIDEO)
The music icon was on the show to discuss her upcoming residency plans, but she also spoke about her opposition to the Republican presidential nominee. Cher frequently tweets about her disdain for Trump, while supporting his rival, Hillary Clinton, whom Cher endorsed last April. “I feel like I’m yelling ‘fire,’ and no one is listening,” she now told interviewer Maria Shriver on the morning show.
She went on, “I care about the country, and I know that people that are following Trump, they care about the country, too. But I don’t think it’s the same country I care about.” Shriver noted, “You see different realities.” Cher responded, “Yeah. I just do.”
Of Clinton, the singing legend said, “She’s done some things that I’m sure she wishes she hadn’t done. And she’s done things — I can’t back every play. But I think that if she has the chance to be a great president, she will rise to that occasion.”
Cher has appeared on Clinton’s behalf at a couple of campaign events, and has openly feuded with Trump over the years. But during the primary season, almost exactly a year ago, she did favorably compare him to other Republican nominees. Trump even thanked her for calling him a “giant among GOP frontrunners.” Gossip Cop suspects he won’t be thanking Cher for this new interview. Check out the video below.
