‘I’m With Cher’ is the Presidential campaign we can all get behind

Nick Duffy August 4, 2016

Donald Trump, eat your heart out: there’s a new celebrity political campaign in town.

In a bid to counter the star power sheriff’s badge power of Donald Trump, a Cher fan has created a new cult-like Presidential movement.

The gay icon has become known in recent months for her scathing Twitter rants aimed at Trump (whom she denotes with a toilet emoji) and her advocacy for the Democrats.

In her many, many, many tweets about Trump, Cher branded him a sick egomaniac, a sociopathic narcissist, a selfish bastard who has questionable ties to Russia, a vindictive fraud and a liar… and that’s just in the last 24 hours.

The Believe singer has now become an unlikely rallying point for opposition to Trump, with the #ImWithCher campaign riffing off Hillary Clinton’s ‘#ImWithHer’.

Cher fan Anna Neiss started it off by creating Presidential campaign posters bearing some of the music legend’s tweets, including the immortal: “IF I WAS A MAN ID DRAG HIS”FAKE”,BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRE ASS 2FILTH! HES A LYING PRE-FAB, “CON-MAN”A THE PPL! WOULD <3 KICK’N HIS PUNK ASS”

And of course: “B AFRAID! THIS BAT[emoji poo] MAN WHO CANT CONTROL HIS TWTS,& WHO SAYS”I HAVE GOOD RELATIONSHIP W/PUTIN” MUST NOT B GIVEN America’s SECRETS! THIS IS NO JOKE [emoji skull]

But it’s spiralled from there – designing an extensive range of merchandise, including badges, stickers and posters.

Proceeds from the ‘I’m With Cher’ merchandise sales will go to Everytown for Gun Safety (one of Cher’s favourite Twitter topics) or another organisation of Cher’s choice.
