Cher: watching Donald Trump makes me ‘want to blow my brains out’

The singer is an outspoken critic of the Republican presidential nominee

Cher made her strong distaste for Donald Trump known at rally for Hillary Clinton, saying that she’d rather “blow her brains out” than listen to the Republican presidential nominee speak.

The singer made the comments while speaking at a fundraiser for the Democratic presidential candidate on Monday evening at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

“When I see Trump talking, I just want to blow my brains out, well maybe not my brains,” she told the audience. “I’m just like ‘What are you talking about, Jesus!’ I know that Hillary fights for equality for all people and we are no good unless all of us are equal.”

Cher was undecided until recently over whether to support Clinton or her rival candidate Bernie Sanders, tweeting in April that she was torn between the two.

Speaking of her relationship with Clinton at the rally, she said: “I’ve known her for a long time now and I have to say that no matter which way the political winds have blown at any moment, her moral compass has always pointed towards grace, justice for genders, and justice for sexual orientation, which is big for me. All of those things are important to me.”

The event also featured performances from John Legend, Ricky Martin and Stevie Wonder.

Cher isn’t the first musician to speak out against Donald Trump. Henry Rollings, Angel Haze, Waka Flocka Flame and Ellie Golding are among those who have criticised the Republican nominee.
