Cher Laughs At Trump’s Promise To Protect LGBTQ Community: “Oh, Come On!”
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.
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.”
“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.
