My Twitter Conversation With Cher About Republicans and Sonny Bono
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?
