Pop icon Cher definitely does not back Donald Trump’s run for the presidency.
Although the real estate mogul’s 2016 campaign launch this week was widely ridiculed across the media landscape, the “Believe” singer’s social media reaction garnered some of the most attention.
In addition to saying she would relocate to the planet Jupiter if Trump was ever elected, the 69-year-old called him a “loudmouthed bigot” and an “obnoxious a–hole,” in a series of tweets.
“Donald Trump can’t come up with a hairstyle that looks human, how can he come up with a plan to defeat ISIS,” Cher said incredulously on Twitter. “Donald Trump’s ego is so inflated, he might as well be the Hindenburg,” she added in another tweet.
The outspoken, Oscar-winning performer said choosing between GOP contender Sen. Ted Cruz and Trump was “like saying ‘would you rather have a Migraine or Throw Up.’” And ultimately that: “Donald Trump’s Punishment, Is being DONALD TRUMP.”
Cher has been a longtime supporter of liberal causes and politicians. But in recent years, she has expressed dissatisfaction with President Obama, even calling into C-Span to voice her displeasure with his foreign policy.
Trump has yet to respond to Cher’s remarks, but he has a long history of lashing out at his high-profile critics on social media and in various other forms. In the past he’s engaged in public feuds with Rosie O’Donnell, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher and countless others.
Most recently, he’s aimed his ire at conservative pundit George Will, calling him “boring,” “often wrong” and “a total dope!”
