Cher Bemoans ‘Divided Country’ After Calling Trump a ‘F*cking Idiot’

Pop star Cher is sad that America is now a “divided” country, she wrote in a Twitter post just days after calling Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a “f*cking idiot” whom she wishes would “fall off the face of the earth” during a fundraiser for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In a tweet featuring her signature emoji-heavy stylings, the 70-year-old “Believe” singer said she had been the recipient of “vicious hate” for supporting Clinton.

“We Seem 2b a Country DIVIDED,” the singer wrote, adding a teary-eyed frowny-face. “Its Like a Civil War [sic].”

Cher’s lamentation came just a few days after the singer attacked Trump during a Clinton fundraiser in Provincetown, Massachusetts, comparing the Republican nominee to “despots” like Hitler and Stalin. She also claimed that those who had voted for Britain to leave the European Union in the country’s historic June 23rd referendum had done so out of anger and had badly “screwed themselves.”

“I just think he’s a f*cking idiot,” the singer said to a very receptive audience at the Pilgrim Monument and Museum on Cape Cod. “I was thinking despots — Stalin, Hitler — even though they said the same things, we’re going to make Germany great again, and it was at a time when the Deutsch mark I think was at 25 cents. And also look at Brexit, these people just screwed themselves so badly because they were angry and they didn’t think things could get worse.”

The singer also compared Trump to child actress Patty McCormack’s enfant terrible character in the 1956 movie The Bad Seed.

“Consummate liar, doesn’t care who she hurts, insane, and you know, sociopathic narcissist,” she said of Trump. “I just wish he’d fall off the face of the earth.”

This was hardly the first time Cher has gone after Trump during this election season. The singer regularly rips the candidate on Twitter, often using a toilet emoji in addition to or in place of his name.

Cher has also cursed out “old white men” like Mitt Romney, and previously called former Alaska governor Sarah Palin the “dumb C word.”

Sunday’s Provincetown fundraiser reportedly raised more than $1.5 million for Clinton’s campaign.

In two follow-up tweets on Wednesday, Cher apparently forgot to substitute her signature toilet emoji for Trump’s name.
