Cher recently made the
bizarre allegation President Donald Trump “kills” for the adulation of his fans at his rallies. She also pushed a conspiracy theory that President Trump only wants to save white people and white supremacists from the coronavirus.
“WHAT IF trump DOESNT WANT 2 SAVE”EVERYONE”FROM THE VIRUS .NO BLUE STATES,NO PPL OF COLOR,NO POOR, WHITE LIBERALS,” Cher tweeted. “WHAT IF trump ONLY WANTS WHITES & WHITE SUPREMACIST.”
Cher was married to Sonny Bono, who turned to politics following his showbiz career. Bono was mayor of Palm Springs and later served as a Republican congressman from California’s 44th district for three years until his untimely death in 1998.
