In a blistering, mostly CAPS series of posts, music icon Cher told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she needs to end the government shutdown.
“FOR trump THIS IS POLITICAL..BUT REAL PPL ARE REALLY SUFFERING,” Cher wrote in the post.
In the post, Cher said that people would starve, lose their homes, and be unable to choose their doctors should the government remain closed.
She concluded the post calling Pelosi a “hero,” but said she should “LET HIM HAVE HIS FKNG MONEY.”
Cher replied to one user and called for an end to the shutdown. She said that people were suffering and “there’s no winning.”
In the post, Cher said she hated Trump “and every corrupt thing he does but you guys [Democrats] are putting lives in danger.”
She continued: “IS IT ONLY ABOUT NOT GIVING IN⁉️JUST DO IT🙏🏻”
In an earlier post, Cher questioned where the crisis had been over the first two years of President Trump’s term in office. She also blamed the Trump administration for the deaths of two children who were in the custody of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency.
As Twitchy reports, Cher backtracked a little from her initial comment that Pelosi cave to Trump after Fox News wrote a report about her and the tweet.
Fox News reported:
Liberal music superstar Cher is holding congressional Democrats’ feet to the fire amid the ongoing partial government shutdown.
It came after President Trump delivered a prime-time address from the Oval Office on Tuesday making the case for funding the border wall, which was followed by a response from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who argued that the president must reopen the government in order to continue conversations about border security.
Cher responded but calling the network “fake news” and denied that she made a “demand.”
In another tweet, Cher tweeted: “Guess When You Piss off Ur Ppl,Are Used By Fox As Propaganda,All You Can Do Is Apologize To Those You Respect & Say👋🏻”
“I have a hard time with suffering,” she added, before accusing the president for not caring about other people or being apathetic to their struggles.
