Cher Slams Trump As an ‘Ignorant Thug’ with a ‘Lizard Brain’ Who ‘Butchers his Enemies’

Cher has slammed Donald Trump, hours after the political enemies appeared to reach a very unlikely agreement.

The Los Angeles native had been on Twitter bemoaning the plight of “50,000 people living on the streets,” and called for her state to prioritize homeless veterans instead of taking in more immigrants.

Trump shared the post and replied: “For once, I agree with Cher,” – which drew the wrath of the vocal liberal who called him “an ignorant thug with a lizard brain.”

Cher wrote: “I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS. PPL [people] WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS) How Can it Take Care Of More [sic].'”

She then clarified her comments to say that while she didn’t support the mistreatment of immigrants, she wasn’t happy with thousands of people being “dropped” into the city without “being vetted.”

She wrote: ‘I AGREE… THAT DEMS STILL DONT GET,THEY’RE PLAYING POLITICS,& trump’s PLAYING BUTCHER YOUR ENEMIES& CREATE CONSTANT MAYHEM. HE’S IGNORANT THUG WITH LIZARD BRAIN THAT GUARANTEES HIS SURVIVAL ABOVE ALL ELSE.IF DEMS R WAITING 4 HIM 2 HAVE EPIPHANY,GOOD FKNG LUCK [sic].

The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., also reposted Cher’s tweet to his Instagram account, writing: “Welcome to the Republican Party Cher!!!”

The back-and-forth argument was shared hundreds of thousands of times – with Cher telling her followers that she had cried after her comments were misunderstood.

She wrote: “Worked,Tried To Explain Myself,,Cried About Notre Dame,Worked,Felt Misunderstood,Worked, Wondered how ppl could condemn me after all I’ve said & Done in life,Worked & Compartmentalized my Emotions,Took Care Of Those In My Care.Remembered Pain will wait 4 U.Choose Joy Now.”
