Looks like Cher would like to turn back time on her recent anti-Trump tweets.
The pop-music legend and hyperbolic Twitter lefty realized that her latest tweet calling the president a “murderer” over his coronavirus response was maybe a bit too far. Wow. A celebrity with a conscience when it comes to talking Trump? Maybe the world is really ending.
In a since-deleted tweet posted March 21, Cher accused President Trump of … well, it’s hard to tell really, but it wasn’t good and it added up to her conclusion that he was a “LIAR & MURDERER.” She tweeted:
trump HAS ACCESS 2 EVERY MASK, SHIELD, GOWN, GLOVE, BED, VENTiLATOR, RESPIRATOR, TEST KIT, NATIONAL GUARDSMAN, SOLDIER FROM ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, NURSES, DR.’S, TECHS, 1ST RESPONDERS NEEDED 2 SAVE THE LIVES OF CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS, & CAREGIVERS. Trump IS A LIAR & MURDERER. OPEN UR [eyes].
Yes, nice and unhinged. Par for the course for someone with full-blown TDS like Cher, though this time she felt that she went a little too far with her condemnation. In a rare moment of self-reflection, the 73-year-old singer deleted the tweet and followed up with an apology.
Later that evening, Cher tweeted that she “WENT ‘2 FAR’ AND AM ‘TRULY’ SORRY.” Though we don’t know what the quotation marks are for. Either way she seemed earnest.
Incoherent, sure, but so was the tweet she’s apologizing for.
Hollywood Twitter has been off-the-rails in their hatred for Trump during the pandemic. Creeps like Rob Reiner and others have tweeted abuse for the administration. John Cusack recently told the President to “rot in hell,” other actors like Josh Gad said the president is acting like “pig rolling in shit,” and loons like Rosanna Arquette went as far as tweeting that the spread of Chinese Virus is a zionist plot designed to profit off of vaccine sales.
Cher further explained walking back the tweet, saying her mom wouldn’t approve. “This was not because of Outside pressure,It’s because My Mom Wouldn’t be Proud Of Me.She hates trump,but she’s said ‘Cher (she Never Calls Me Cher) There Are Things you Think, & Things You Say…Dont Confuse Them.”
If only every other Hollyweirdo had a mother like Cher’s.
Well, Mr. Trump, it seems like Cher would like to “take back those words that had hurt you, and you’d stay.” Well, actually, that last part is pushing it.
