Cher launches shocking tirade against Trump, says she wants him sexually assaulted in prison as a 'Toy boy of Big Bubba'
The 73-year-old went on a Twitter rant following Special Counsel Robert Mueller's statement about his report on the Russia investigation, wherein he said his report didn't give a clean chit to the president
Cher launched an all-out attack against President Donald Trump following Special Counsel's Robert Mueller's statement on Wednesday on his report investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 elections.
Mueller announced that it was not an option for his office to charge the president, telling those gathered that charging a president with a crime was "not an option we could consider" but adding that "if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so."
The testimony was followed by Cher taking to Twitter and posting a series of tweets where she accused Trump of being a "liar," a "racist," a "crook" who will "do anything to win," though it would be a now-deleted post that would catch everyone's attention.
In the post, the singer seemingly called for the president's arrest and expressed a hope that he would get sexually assaulted in prison. "Been Giving IM7PEACHMENT MUCH Thought Throughout The Day,& I Would *love* 2 See trump Impeached, Brought 2 Trial, *locked* Up In *prison* & Toy Boy Big Bubba!!" she wrote, according to the Daily Mail.
"My Delight In Seeing trump Run Out Of Town On a Rail, Is More Likely *heart* over *brain*," she continued, before adding, "I WANT WHAT'S BEST 4 DEMOCRATS AND DEMOCRACY."
But when the optics of the tweet and its implications became apparent, the 73-year-old deleted it. She explained herself in another tweet a few hours later, though she insisted it was not an apology.
"This is Not Apology, It's a Cher 'wtf Moment,'" she wrote. "Dont Usually Delete My Twts, But Sometimes I Need 2 Check Myself. What I Thought Of As Stupid Joke' On Paper', Went 2 Far. Think trump Belongs In Jail, but Big Bubba Joke Was Wrong. If I Twt, I Have a Responsibility. THERES IS A LINE NOT 2 *cross*."
It wasn't the only attack she made against Trump on the day either. After reports that the White House wanted the US Navy to keep a warship named after late Sen. John McCain out of the president's sight during his trip to Japan — the pair were known to have a frosty relationship with one another, Cher made her feelings about the debacle very clear.
"OK, JUST WHEN YOU THINK trump CANT SINK ANY LOWER!!" she tweeted. "trump DIDNT WANT 'USS JOHN McCAIN' IN HIS SIGHT WHILE HE WAS IN JAPAN..HE WENT SO FAR AS TO HAVE TARP THROWN OVER THE WAR HERO’S NAME. I DID NOT SHARE JSM POLITICS, BUT I HAD 'RESPECT' FOR HIM. HE WAS HERO. trump HAS 'HERO' ENVY [sic]"
