Cher: Drop Donald Trump
By Jeremy Kinser
Never doubt Cher to put her money where her mouth is. The superstar entertainer says she'll never shop at Macy's department store again while it carries the a clothing and fragrance line that bears the name of billionaire Donald Trump, due to the billionaire's chauvinism, birtherism, climate change denial, and ... Wait! Cher shops at Macy's?? Regardless, the icon used her Twitter account on Sunday to blast the Donald and his continued attacks on women and President Obama. "I’ll NEVER GO TO MACY’S AGAIN!," she tweeted. "I didnt know they sold Donald Trump’s Line! If they don’t care that they sell products from a LOUDMOUTH RACIST CRETIN,WHO’D LIE LIKE 'HIS RUG' TO GET SOME CHEAP PRESS ! I CANT BELIEVE MACY’S THINKS HE’S THE RIGHT “MAN” 2 REPRESENT THEIR NAME !"
Cher is merely the most high-profile American to add her name to the growing "Dump the Trump" petition created on SignOn.org and widely distributed on various social media platforms. The campaign calls into question why Macy is celebrating the billionaire and encourages the retail giant to end its relationship with Trump, listing his long dalliance with bigoted behavior, including "personally attacking women he disagrees by calling them 'unattractive,' ugly or fat." The petition also notes that Trump "hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy's is made in China and other Asian nations." Also listed is Trump's controversial comment made after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the east coast. "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive," he declared. And who can forget that he has perpetuated what the petition describes as "the racially charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States." Trump also called the recent election "a total sham and a travesty" and wrote that the world is laughing at the U.S. and encouraged a "revolution in this country."
