Cher: 'I'm traumatised by Trump'

2016-10-02
Cher has warned that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will change the US for the worse if he becomes president. "I'm trying to parse my words... I'm not good at it, he's an a**hole," the 70-year-old said at the One Young World Summit in Canada. Cher was featured on a discussion panel about the future of America if Trump is elected and she didn't hold anything back, labelling Trump as "dangerous" and "terrific at lying" while warning that he would "put an end" to gay marriage and adoption. Cher also stated that he would "put any end to any hope that women have of getting the rights that we had." "I don't know how he's a candidate, he is so dangerous, and what he brings to my country, what he's awakened in my country, is bigotry and distrust and a certain kind of supremacy in certain groups, and he lies." "He's amazing," Cher adds. "He tells something and then you go back and see what he's said and it seems like the truth both times, he's so terrific at lying. I've never seen anyone so good, it's amazing." "I could go on and on on this subject forever because I'm so traumatised by him. I am truly traumatised by him." However Cher also criticised Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggesting that the younger generations struggle to trust her, according to the Independent. "It's not easy, because especially millennials - they're no drawn to Hillary; they don't trust her, they feel that her sins are really enormous." "If you delve into some of the things she's been accused of - she's screwed up and that's for sure," the singer adds. But Cher reassures that Clinton will be better for the US than Trump because she'll "do her best." "I've known her for a long time and I think she will do her best. And she's a politician but she will do her best. if you look at her from the beginning of her life till now, she's worked hard for people."
