Cher just spilled the beans on her dream ticket for the 2020 presidential election. The 72-year-old pop icon said that she knows “Joe Biden is a really good man” and added that she would love to see him run with someone younger, like Kamala Harris, as his running mate. She thinks they can beat President Donald Trump by a landslide. Well, that’s when the Oscar winner got smacked hard for her choice. You’ll love this.
Cher is making her wishes known for the 2020 presidential race. The Moonstruck star is being lauded by the Washington Post as a real political expert, so we should heed her words, right? The Hollywood Trump-hater made it clear that her choice is Joe Biden.
The Hill reports, “The Believe singer was one of several iconic entertainers — including country music star Reba McEntire, Lin-Manuel Miranda and the co-creators of Hamilton, jazz musician Wayne Shorter, and composer Philip Glass — recognized at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington.”
“I would love to see [Biden] with someone young,” said Cher, one of President Trump‘s most vocal Hollywood critics. The 72-year-old performer frequently blasts Trump on social media, calling him a “f—ing traitor,” among other less-than-complimentary names, reported The Hill.
Pressed on the more youthful potential Biden running mate, Cher — who fundraised for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 campaign — mentioned a pair of high-profile California Democrats. “[Sen.] Kamala Harris or — I can’t remember what Swalwell’s first name is,” Cher said of Rep. Eric Swalwell.
The 76-year-old ex-VP told The Hill in April that he wouldn’t decide on a presidential run “until the end of the year.” A Biden rep declined to comment on the If I Could Turn Back Time songstress’s remark. This is just another example of a leftist celebrity weighing in on politics, and it’s making most Americans a tad bit fed-up.
Barack Obama’s former Vice-President has tried to play the tough guy when he talks about Trump. The New York Post reports, “Former Vice President Joe Biden didn’t pull any punches when he told an anti-sexual assault rally that he would have ‘beat the hell out’ of Donald Trump for the way he disrespects women, according to a report.”
“They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman [Trump], and I said ‘no.’ I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’ I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden continued. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”
If Biden does, in fact, become the nominee and if he has delusions that he’ll take on Trump with this type of an attack, we say good luck. The president is an expert at the counter punch, and he towers over the 6-foot-tall Biden at 6’4″.
Yet, Biden is a front-runner for the Democrats, according to early polling. Breitbart reports, “An October poll indicated that many Democrats are hyped about his chances, with 33 percent of those polled saying that he was their top choice. However, Biden’s chances may be hurt by his establishment record as the Democratic field is being flooded with new voices, from Michael Avenatti to Kamala Harris.”
Cher’s hatred for the current president often takes on vitriolic tones. Last month, she said that Trump was a “LIAR, WHITE NATIONALIST, RACIST, TRAITOR, WHO’D HAVE PHOTO OP WITH HITLER, IF HE THOUGHT IT WOULD RALLY HIS BASE.”
TOOK PIC WITH SWEET DACA/DREAMER,HAPPY 2 SEE ME B4 trump KICKES HIM OUT OF🇺🇸. 🇺🇸IS ONLY HOME HE KNOWS. WE HUGGED I 😥.HOPE THERES SPECIAL🔥HELL🔥4 LIAR, WHITE NATIONALIST, RACIST,TRAITOR,WHO’D HAVE PHOTO OP WITH HITLER,IF HE THOUGHT IT WOULD RALLY HIS BASE

But there’s more. Americans smacked her hard after she voiced her Biden/Harris pick.
Twitter user “Richyy Ravyy” let Cher have it, tweeting, “Biden and Kamala will not beat Trump in 2020. Can you please stay out of politics and stick to what you do best, getting plastic surgery and making horrible music. The last time you were relevant was 3 facelifts ago!”

Then, Sabrina Fain tweeted, “Biden is not a great man. He threw Dr Anita Hill under the bus in the 90s when he voted for her sexual harasser to become Supreme Court Justice. He threw Hillary Clinton under the bus by calling her a weak candidate after she’d won the popular vote.”

Cher may like Kamala Harris or Eric Swalwell for the VP choice, but they don’t hold a candle to Mike Pence. And as for the Joe Biden match up with Donald Trump? What exactly is Biden going to run on? The Obama years? All the president has to do is bring up all the reasons why Americans rejected a continuation of Obama through Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Of course, there will be nicknames, too. President Trump can’t pass up giving his enemies nicknames. There is even a Wikipedia page dedicated to the president’s famous nicknames, and Joe Biden’s are “1 Percent Joe, Crazy Joe Biden, and Sleepy Joe.” Cher may get to see Joe Biden run, but Crazy Joe just comes with too much baggage from his Obama years to defeat President Donald Trump.
