Cher, legendary entertainer, took a dive off the deep end on Thursday morning, posting a tweet about wanting to see President Trump be sexually assaulted in prison.
Later on, after allowing her emotions to back down, Cher realized the horror of what she said and deleted her tweet. However, she’s not apologizing for what she said.
In a since-deleted tweet, the 73-year-old performer wrote, “Been giving impeachment much thought throughout the day & I would [love] 2 see Trump impeached, brought 2 trial, [locked] up in [chains], & boy toy of Big Bubba.”

The performer’s tweet came on the heels of special counsel Robert Mueller’s statement Wednesday reiterating the findings of his office’s report. During a news conference, Mueller also announced that he would be closing his office and resigning. You can read more about Mueller’s news conference here.
Former CNN host and current “Good Morning Britain” anchor Piers Morgan took exception to Cher’s remarks, and pointed out what he believed to be liberal hypocrisy.
BREAKING: Cher says she wants President Trump to be raped in prison as 'Toy boy of Big Bubba.'
Disgusting, and if she'd said it about Obama she would never work again. https://t.co/m7qAwAi9SZ

Following backlash for the remark, Cher deleted the tweet and issued a clarification, admitting that she has to “check” herself on occasion. In the tweet, however, the entertainer was adamant that her follow-up was not an apology.
If she wants to be consistent with her own worldview, then yes, Cher does indeed need to apologize for these horrific comments she’s made.
Then again, consistency between principles and actions isn’t something the left seems to have a real strong grasp on, so perhaps we’re simply expecting too much from folks on that side of the political spectrum.
No one should be sexual assaulted, especially just because you disagree with them politically. That’s just gross and disgusting on every level. Time to put politics aside, Cher, and rediscover what it means to be a human being.
