Cher Praises Hillary Clinton At “She’s With Us” Concert: “Hillary fights for equality for all people.”
Last night (June 6), presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton hosted her “She’s With Us” concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. And, in addition to performances by artists like John Legend, Ricky Martin and Stevie Wonder, pop icon Cher took the stage to say a few words about the presumptive Democratic nominee.
“As you might have heard, last month I turned 100 years old … Ok, I turned 70 but it’s the same shit,” Cher joked during her speech. “I’ve been alive through 11 presidents and when I was young, I didn’t even know if it 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.”
She continued, “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 went on to say her piece on Republican nominee 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.”
