Cher Slams Trump's Children, Says "Not One of Them Worth a Damn"

Cher Slams Trump's Children, Says "Not One of Them Worth a Damn"

Cher, one of Trump's strongest critics, has severely criticized the Trump family this time for their abuse of power.

Cher is back with another tweet slamming the current US administration. Usually, her ire is aimed at the president, Donald Trump. This time, however, she did it by commenting on his children: Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. On May 8, 2019, Cher shared an article by Bustle which spoke about Ivanka’s brand reportedly procuring trademarks for voting machines in China. 


The article, in brief, says that CREW, a Washington watchdog nonprofit organization found out that her brand made this acquisition, despite its shutdown in July. This move could jeopardize her role as a presidential advisor. This is because as of now, she has a direct influence on White House policy and diplomatic relations, and this business move could be a conflict of interest. A day after this, on May 9, 2019, Cher posted her second tweet aiming a barb at the president's son.


The tweet shows a screenshot of Hugh Grant's tweet, which shows Donald Trump Jr. with a cut tail of an elephant and the Four Weddings and A Funeral star saying: Americans often ask me to define the British word "W*****". The post also has two more images --- one of a Guardian article titled, "Trump sons' hunting in focus as US lifts import ban on African elephant trophies", and another, a google search of Trump administration lifting the import of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia to the US.

The Grammy winner has become one of the most vocal critics of the president on social media in recent times. In April 2019, Trump announced that he is considering having immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally relocated to live in designated sanctuary cities around the country. According to Daily Mail, Cher said that the city of Los Angeles, which was one of the sanctuary cities, didn't have enough resources to take care of its own, so how could it take care of more.

When Trump responded that he once agreed with Cher, the singer lashed out by calling him a "thug" with a "lizard brain." 



In the month prior to that, Cher made another comment about Trump at VH1 Trailblazer Honors. She spoke highly of the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, "When I see Trump spew his hatred and tell his gazillion lies, I get pissed off but I also feel really uneasy. Then, I see Nancy come on TV and I think, 'It’s all good. Nancy’s in the house.'"
