Pop superstar Cher has threatened to leave the U.S. if former President Donald Trump retakes the White House in 2024, Breitbart reported. The 77-year-old "Believe" singer reported having physical manifestations of her outrage when Trump was first elected in 2016.
"I almost got an ulcer the last time [Trump was elected]," Cher said in an interview Wednesday. "If he gets in, who knows? This time I will leave [the country]."
Keeping with most leftwing entertainers, Cher has continued to complain about Trump while shilling for President Joe Biden. During his 2020 presidential campaign, the "Moonstruck" star modified the song "Happiness is Just A Thing Called Joe" and recorded it in honor of Biden.
Cher also supported twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in her unsuccessful 2016 presidential bid against Trump. The Grammy and Oscar winner has never shied away from sharing her leftwing political opinions, especially when triggered by the GOP.
In 2020, Cher took to X, then known as Twitter, to rail against Trump in posts written in all capital letters. She hurled insults and accusations at Trump, calling him a "mass murderer" who should be put to "death" as a punishment.
Cher later deleted that particularly unhinged post. However, while Trump was set to give a speech at Gettysburg later that year, Cher said that she hoped the "ground opens up" to swallow the then-president so "we never see him again."
The " "I've Got You, Babe" star was similary triggered with the election of Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin in 2021. Cher said the "GOP are Nazis" and warned Republicans would turn the U.S. into a "white's only club."
After the Roe v. Wade decision was overturned last year in the U.S. Supreme Court, Cher became especially agitated. She posted to X again in all caps about how Trump's "radical Republican Supreme Court" will be "responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of American women."
She warned that it was the "beginning of the end of freedom." Cher also reacted strongly in response to a Texas pro-life law, posting hyperbolic warnings like "WOMEN WILL DIE" and "DEMOCRACY WILL WITHER & DIE, & DICTATORS WILL THRIVE."
However, the most comically unhinged thing Cher ever said came shortly before the 2016 election. That summer, the "Mermaids" star said she would be "moving to Jupiter" if Trump won, The Hill reported.
Obviously, Cher stayed put here on Earth to rage tweet at the president, but she wasn't alone in making these sorts of threats. Jon Stewart, former host of "The Daily Show," contemplated "getting in a rocket and going to another planet because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers" if Trump became president.
Others, like Barbara Streisand and "House of Cards" actress Neve Campbell, threatened to move to Canada. Natasha Lyonne of "Orange is the New Black" said she would relocate to an insane asylum if Trump became president.
Comedian Chelsea Handler boasted that she had already purchased "a house in another country just in case" during a television appearance in May 2016. "So all these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t — I actually will leave that country."
None of these insufferable individuals followed through on their previous threats last time Trump was elected. Instead, Cher and all of the others continue to live lavish lifestyles in the only country in the world that would put up with them.
