Cher was ecstatic to embrace her pick for POTUS in 2016, Hillary Clinton, at last night's She's With Us concert in L.A., which featured musical performances by the likes of John Legend, Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, and more.
Cher said of Hillary:
As you might have heard, last month I turned 100 years old ... Okay, I turned 70, but it's the same s***. I've been alive through 11 presidents, and when I was young, I didn't even know if was possible for a women to be president of the United States. I want to tell you that when Clinton ran for Senate, they asked me if I wanted to spend some time with her at a tea party gathering where she would talk to women. I was so interested in what she had to say, she was so different.
After about the third conversation with these groups of women, I told her, “You're so nice and funny and so great—why are you not like this all the time? I love you, you can hang with me.”
I've known her for a long time now and I have to say that no matter which way the political winds have blown at any moment, her moral compass has always pointed towards grace, justice for genders, and justice for sexual orientation, which is big for me. All of those things are important to me.
Cher also took a moment to put the blast on Donald Trump:
When I see Trump talking, I just want to blow my brains out. Well, maybe not my brains, but I'm just like, “What are you talking about? Jesus!” I know that Hillary fights for equality for all people and we are no good unless all of us are equal.
Lindsey Graham also can't even with Trump—he has rescinded his already-tepid endorsement from last month, citing Trump's racist diatribes.
In case Cher hasn't persuaded you to vote today—all you residents of California, New Jersey, Montana, New Mexico, North and South Dakota—maybe Bernie booster Eric Angelo can help:
