Cher Trashes Trump and Tries to Fire Up the Dems on MSNBC
On Tuesday night, inimitable Cher called MSNBC’s Final Words with Lawrence O’Donnell after she praised the host for raising funds on his behalf KIND (Kids In Need of Desks), a charity that provides school desks to Malawi students. O’Donnell and his viewers have helped raise $32,838,605 for KIND since 2010.
Cher admits to being a longtime viewer of Last words and praised the program’s “great” effort in raising money for Malawi students, for it Cher herself is also involved in a number of charitable activities, consists of Wild Liberation, an international charity that works to prevent the mistreatment of wild animals in captivity.
“I just feel like a freak because I’m a crazy MSNBC [viewer],” Cher told O’Donnell. “Sometimes I scream at you guys, other times I just say, ‘Oh, they’re so sweet’ and pat you on the head. Actually, if you’ve ever read any of my tweets, I’m politically insane and getting myself into a lot of trouble, but I don’t care.”
When O’Donnell asked her about the New Year after spending a “healthy presidency” year under Joe Biden, Cher replied, “I really wish the Democrats would just lean in and run around with their hair. I know it’s not a nice thing to do or a light thing to do, but it’s a waste of time, you and someone have to light a fire.”
Then, of course, the subject of former President Donald Trump comes up. O’Donnell wondered if Cher had ever crossed paths with anyone as obnoxious as Trump, a stubborn man accused of sexual harassment or assault by more than 20 women.
“Well, honey, I’ve run into some crap and some – just the worst, think of a bunch of adjectives – but I’ve never encountered one. whoever [like Trump]. They pale in comparison. You know, the people I know, they can’t even… he’s like a horse of a different color. ”
