Cher compared Donald Trump to Stalin and Hitler during a speech at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser.
Cher sharply criticized Donald Trump during a Hillary Clinton fundraiser Sunday in Provincetown, Massachusetts, comparing the Republican presidential nominee to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. "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," she said in a video posted to Facebook after the event. "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's comments can be seen at 15:00 in the above video.
As The New York Times reports, the "Believe" singer hyped Clinton during the speech, saying, "This chick is just tougher than Chinese algebra." But she spent most of her energies disparaging the Democrat's opponent, whom she called "a fucking idiot."
"None of us are perfect, but I believe [Clinton is] genuine … unlike Trump," Cher continued. "Do you remember Fun With Dick and Jane? It's like racist Fun With Dick and Jane! 'We're going to build walls!' He doesn't mean 'We're going to make America great again!' He means, 'We're going to make America straight and white.'"
