Singer Cher is speaking out against
Donald Trump and his recent promises to the LGBT community.
During an appearance Tuesday on MSNBC's
The Last Word, Cher called Trump the “most disingenuous man
I've ever seen.” Her remarks come just days after she stumped for
Hillary Clinton, Trump's rival, in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
In accepting the GOP presidential
nomination, Trump vowed to protect the LGBT community.
“Only weeks ago, in Orlando, Florida,
forty-nine wonderful Americans were savagely murdered by an Islamic
terrorist,” Trump told GOP delegates meeting in Cleveland. “This
time, the terrorists targeted our LGBTQ community. As your
president, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ
citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign
ideology, believe me.”
“Oh come on,” Cher told host
Lawrence O'Donnell. “He says those letter like a child who's
learning the alphabet.”
“He's the most disingenuous man I've
ever seen. And I want to tell you, my people will not believe him
for a minute,” she added.
In gay-friendly Provincetown, Cher
helped raise more than $1.5 million for Clinton. Standing in front
of a giant American flag, Cher compared Trump to Joseph Stalin and
“[Trump] doesn't mean we want to make
America great again. He means we want to make America straight and
white,” she told the crowd, and later added that she was reminded
of “despots, you know, Stalin, Hitler.”
