While Speaking at Clinton Fundraiser, Cher Compares Trump to Hitler and Stalin

Introducing Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser in Provincetown, Massachusetts on Sunday, Cher delivered a somewhat rambling speech in which she leapt from Weimar Germany to Brexit to the present election, while fiercely criticizing Donald Trump and his supporters.

She directly compared Trump to past “despots, Stalin, Hitler,” who “said the same things,” she said. “We’re going to make Germany great again.”

A video of the speech was taken by one of the attendees and uploaded on Facebook.

His campaign slogan (“Make America Great Again”) actually meant “We want to make America straight and white,” Cher said during her 16-minute, apparently extemporaneous, speech.

She dismissed the Religious Right leaders that Trump had aligned his campaign with as “zealots.” She said, “They feel like God’s with them and this is their mission.”

Trump didn’t “give a shit about the world,” she said. She said that watching him speak was “like ‘Racist Fun with Dick and Jane.’”
