My Twitter Conversation With Cher About Republicans and Sonny Bono

January 7, 2015

So I had an exchange with Cher on Twitter last night.

As a member of Generation X, I remember watching the Sonny and Cher Show on TV in the 1970’s, so when I saw a post on Twitchy which featured a tweet from Cher accusing the new Republican congress of being white supremacists, I was stunned.

I immediately thought of her late ex-husband Sonny Bono who left entertainment to become a Republican member of congress in California. I asked her about it and she actually responded.

See the exchange below.

Here’s Cher eulogizing Sonny Bono after his death in 1998. She clearly loved at least one Republican.

With all due respect to Cher, my question stands unanswered. If Sonny Bono was still alive and was part of the new Republican congress, would she falsely accuse the man she loved of being a white supremacist for the sake of politics?

    What a sad outcome for someone so talented and obviously musically intelligent and a darn good actress. It is often said that it takes all sorts of people to make up this world but opinions should be at least somewhat based on reality. But maybe that expects too much. Hard to get past the jingo rhetoric to have a decent conversation about real facts at issue.

    Yes, she would call him a white supremacist.

    For some reason a lotta old female celebrities — Cher, Martha Plimpton, Ellen Barkin, Rosanne etc. — get Communist-pissy. Is their burgeoning anger a manifestation of their fading Hollywood glamour?

    The looney left buys into this name calling that’s part of their idea of political discourse. Unfortunately she’s one of the worst at it. Sadly she thinks that she’s actually “thinking” for herself when she parrots some of the lefts stupid memes, i.e. war on women, racists, white supremacist, etc.
    They can’t really back up any of those statements, so don’t expect her to answer.
