Celebrity Cher Promotes Hillary Clinton

In a partisan election season filled with vitriol and gross exaggeration, Americans might expect that at least celebrity fund raising parties for political candidates would involve good natured humor. Cher, a beloved singer and the ex of the late Republican entertainer-turned-Congressman Sonny Bono, made an appearance in Provincetown, Massachusetts on Sunday in support of aspiring presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. Her harsh words would probably not please either fact checkers or Secret Service agents, but they did certainly attract press coverage.

After receiving a warm introduction from Mrs. Clinton, Cher grabbed headlines at the event by comparing Republican Donald Trump to the late Fascist madman Adolf Hitler and Communist dictator Josef Stalin. The singer reportedly calling Mrs. Clinton’s opponent a “f**cking idiot” in a rambling rant that compared the Republican businessman to a horror film character. Then she expressed her hope he would “fall off the face of the Earth”. Harsh sentiments indeed.

Scholars still debate whether Hitler or Stalin killed more people during the World War II era. Both likely carry the responsibility for millions of deaths.

Later, after the private event in Massachusetts, Cher allegedly characterized Donald Trump to reporters. She attacked him viciously as a “misogynist”, a “racist” and a “horrible person”.

On Friday night, Cher had appeared in Miami and raised an impressive $130,000 for Mrs. Clinton. Some media pundits have speculated that presidential campaigns this year might use surrogate celebrity spokespeople to launch negative attacks deemed beneath the dignity of the candidates.
