Legendary singer Cher has made no bones about her support of presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and her disdain for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. But at a fundraiser at the Greek Theatre in Hollywood for Hillary Clinton on Monday, she got a little more graphic about her feelings.
Billboard magazine reports Cher told the event’s attendees:
“When I watch Trump I just want to blow my brains out. Or maybe not my brains, but I’m just like `What are you talking about?'” Cher is quoted as saying. “Jesus, I know that Hillary fights for equality for all people and we are no good unless all of us are equal.”

Cher has been vocal about her dislike of Trump in the past, mostly via all-caps, expletive-laden tweets. In one of these tweets, the 70-year-old singer included a photo of Hitler with a photo of Trump’s head superimposed on it.
Unlike Trump, however, Cher’s thoughts on Clinton seem to be universally positive.
“I’ve been alive through 11 presidents and when I was young, I didn’t even know if it was possible for a woman to be president of the United States,” she said, adding, “I want to tell you that when Clinton ran for Senate, they asked me if I wanted to spend some time with her at a tea party gathering where she would talk to women. I was so interested in what she had to say, she was so different.”

Cher also spoke of her own personal relationship with the presumptive Democrat nominee.
“I’ve known her for a long time now and I have to say that no matter which way the political winds have blown at any moment, her moral compass has always pointed towards grace, justice for genders, and justice for sexual orientation, which is big for me. All of those things are important to me,” she said.
