Cher Endorses Hillary Clinton (PHOTO)
The music legend tweeted, “#ImWithHer I’m Proud 2 Support Hillary!! Choose who You ‘Believe In’ & Go [balls] 2 The Wall. NO MATTER WHAT PPL THINK.” As per her usual style, Cher used emojis to express her statement, and ended her tweet with one showing a heart and a muscle flexing.
The singer also included the above photo, which is a mashup of a picture of herself and Clinton’s campaign logo. The image was actually created by a fan, but is similar to ones other celebs have used to show they, too, are “with” Clinton. Cher has been extremely vocal throughout this election season, using Twitter almost every day to comment on the various presidential campaigns, and she previously indicated support for Clinton last October.
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Cher initially tweeted, “Never thought I’d Say… Donald Trump is a Giant Among Gop front runners!! cruz=devil rubio=RAGE AGAINST WOMEN carson=JUST TELL ME WHY!?” Trump, taking the comments as a compliment, responded, “So nice of @Cher — greatly appreciated!”
But the singing icon went on to clarify her overall preference in an exchange with a fan. “Voting 4 Hillary.She’s Smart,Strong,& Uniquely Qualified 4 POTUS.” She went on, “ITS WAY PAST TIME 4 A WOMAN!! THEY BROK [sic] IT!! SHE’LL FIX IT!!”
Cher’s new tweet received a mixed reaction from her 3 million followers. Some similarly said “#ImWithHer,” while others expressed allegiance with Bernie Sanders or Trump. As Gossip Cop has reported, each has a number of celebrity supporters, but it’s not clear how much of an effect that’s actually having on the voting public. See Cher’s full Clinton message below.
