Cher, The Goddess of Pop, dropped a pair of double exclamation point questions into two tweets aimed squarely at The Donald, in response to last night’s stunning revelation of the Republican nominee’s despicable admission of infidelity to his newlywed and then-pregnant third wife Melania. Trump has already told the AP that he won’t drop out of the race, and plans to attend tomorrow night’s Town Hall-style debate, where regular Americans will get a chance to ask the questions. Let us hope they read Cher’s insightful remarks before querying the candidates:
Cher hit the nail right on the head with this first tweet, because there’s simply no excusing purportedly grown adult man, for casually bragging about cheating on his wife – worse so with another married woman who was totally disinterested in his advances. Even Billy Bush said, “That’s huge news” when Trump mentioned that his ‘prey’ was married. Even worse, Trump’s dastardly bragging explicitly noted that: “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful – I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”
Then, she leveled him with a second question.
Only Donald Trump would think that! The fact that he’s bragging about it makes it that much worse, but also validates the claims of numerous women who’ve complained about Trump’s sexual harassment, groping or worse. That’s when Cher asked the question everyone’s wanted to know for months, but sadly will likely never get posed or honestly answered by the Republican Party’s “leadership”:
She’s right! How could the ‘party of family values’ descend into openly supporting the hell-pit that is Trump’s political platform of racism, sexism and thievery? The answer is that these ‘Professional Christians’ like Ralph Reed and Tony Perkins care little for the horse they say, and only for the numbers in their bank accounts. That is how the Republican Party’s 22-year reign of religious terror upon America’s political life has finally run into a hard wall of reality, and in the very worst way possible by nominating quite possibly the worst person in this country to be President of the United States.
Shamefully, neither Donald Trump, nor his GOP enablers will answer her questions, but if we’re really fortunate one brave American in Sunday night’s debate audience will! That brave soul – man or woman – will for a fleeting moment become better known than even Cher.
