Cher talking to CNS News
Funny that when Flap saw Cher at Caesar’s in Las Vegas last summer that she didnm’t mind taking this Republican’s money. She did make a crack at the beginning of her show about right-wing Christians though.
I am sure the folks at Harrah’s who own Caesar’s Palace told her to keep it on the downlow so that there would not be a walk out like Linda Ronstadt had a year ago or so.
Here are the quotes:
Grammy award-winning singer and Academy award-winning actress Cher told CNSNews.com that living under Republican rule almost â€œkilled” her, and she does not understand why anyone would want to be a Republican.
She also said that President Barack Obamaâ€™s â€œintelligenceâ€ and â€œspiritâ€ are â€œso greatâ€ he will be able to do â€œmore than anyone could possibly do.â€
â€œHis intelligence is so great and his spirit is so great, I believe he will be able to do as much if not more than anyone could possibly do,â€ Cher told CNSNews.com at the â€œDeclare Yourselfâ€ inaugural ball.
â€œI just think heâ€™s totally the right person at this time in our history,” she said. “He brings something more in his spirit than maybe another president could be even with the same intelligence. Thereâ€™s something about him that brings more with his spirit, and thatâ€™s what Americans need right now. Republicans almost killed me.â€
When asked to explain how Republicans somehow â€œkilledâ€ her, Cher was not specific.
â€œYou know what? I have so â€“ I try to be charitable and there are some really good Republicans, but I just donâ€™t understand how anyone would want to be a Republican. I just canâ€™t figure it. I donâ€™t understand,â€ she said. â€œIf youâ€™re poor, if youâ€™re any kind of minority â€“ gay, black, Latino, anything. If youâ€™re not a rich â€“ I donâ€™t know. If youâ€™re not a rich born-again-Christian, I donâ€™t get it.â€
You know, Cher’s show was actually pretty good despite her “UNHINGED” politics and Flap enjoyed it. But, Elton John’s was better and he certainly stayed away from any political commnentary during his show.
But, then again, Elton John endorsed Hillary Clinton and not the Obamessiah like Cher.
