A 2005 video of US presidential candidate Donald Trump talking about hitting on a married woman and bragging about groping women was uncovered yesterday.
In the recorded comments, Trump says "you can do anything" to women "when you're a star" and is heard saying "grab them by the p---y". Unsurprisingly, Trump has been under pressure after the remarks with some Republican lawmakers calling on Trump to step down as candidate.
Cher offered her views on the highly sexist remarks:
"Trump is beyond scumbag carnival barker‼️ 'You can do anything to women when you're famous', 'I grabbed her by the p---y'. Jesus!! We are human beings‼️
"Ladies. We are not disposable blow up dolls for rich men's pleasure. I had scary experience with a rich important film producer. And I was Cher!! I wanted a job... It was interview for a film. I was young. I left before I got totally uncomfortable!! I can take care of myself, but shouldn't have to... Walked out of his house and we never spoke again. He never touched me. He was gross and I wasn't staying to find out... No job is worth that." When a fan told Cher that she should reveal the film producer's name to warn other women, Cher revealed that "He's dead".
Trump later issued a statement about his obscene remarks on women. One Cher fan asked the 'Dark Lady'-singer if she had watched it, she responded:
"No!! He's a pig who got caught being a pig, and is pissing himself. He is what he is... A rich sexual predator!! Apologies to pigs everywhere. He's a liar who thinks women are disposable blow up dolls, put here to serve him... Except the 'Ugly Ms Piggy's and one's with no t-ts'. [referring to when Trump publicly ridiculed Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado as 'Miss Piggy']
"He was only married a few months when the incident with the married woman occurred. Why has GOP kissed Trump's ass for a year!? They knew!! Everyone knew!!"
Cher concluded, "Tried to express feelings RE Trump for several minutes, to no avail. Disgusting pig comes to mind, but that statement is so simplistic. Think I'm finally on Trump overload."
