When Donald Trump promised to protect the LGBTQ community in his fear-mongering speech at the RNC this year, only the most gullible fell for it. Count Cher as among those smart enough to know a conman conning when she sees one.

Cher spoke with Lawrence O’Donnell on his MSNBC program The Last Word on Tuesday and made clear just how silly she found Trump’s empty promises.

After playing the footage of the speech, O’Donnell asked what she thought when she heard him speak those words.

“Oh, come on!” she said, laughing. “And he says it, he says those letters like a child that’s just learning the alphabet.”

“He’s the most disingenuous man I’ve ever seen,” she added. “And I want to tell you, my people will not believe him for a minute.”

Cher referenced his closed door meeting with 400 antigay evangelicals shortly after claiming to be more of a friend to the LGBTQ community than Hillary Clinton.

“How does he go from that meeting to telling my people that he will protect them?” she asked.

Trump has also said he sides with states like North Carolina when it comes to transgender bathroom laws like HB2, has routinely spoke out against same-sex marriage and in support of discriminatory Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) laws.

On top of that, he selected antigay Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, and together they are running on an antigay platform that’s so bad even the Log Cabin Republicans are upset about it.

“I fear for (LGBTQ) people, and not just for my son,” she said. “I fear for what (a Trump administration) will do to those people.”

This is not the first time Cher has sounded off on Trump.

Speaking at a Clinton rally in Provincetown, Massachusetts on Sunday she called him a “f***ing idiot.”

“He doesn’t mean we want to ‘Make America Great Again.’ He means: We want to make America straight and white,” she added.

LA Times Is Not About Michael Weinsten’s California Condom Measure

by matt baume September 29, 2016

At first it might seem like a good idea, right? Provide porn workers with workplace protections that would prevent them from getting sick, like how food workers have to wear gloves. But the more you hear about California’s Proposition 60, the fishier it smells. Yuck. Now the LA Times has come out against the measure, which would require all adult [...]

by Dan Tracer September 29, 2016

  Westeros is a very scary world, with all the politics and violence going on, so it was nice to play an affectionate gay couple within that world. We were very passionate about it being a positive thing. I still hold on to that and I’m still very proud of it. I got some lovely [...]
