Just prior to going down in flames in the Nevada caucus, White House contender Joe Biden posed for a photo with former entertainer Cher which he later tweeted with the caption “Do you believe in life after Trump?” — a reference to Cher’s 1998 hit “Believe.”
Cher had previously tweeted that “JOE HAD MANY STRIKES AGAINST HIM. MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE..HES A GOOD, HONEST MAN WHO COULD BE PRES, BUT NOT RUN 4 PRES. He Doesn’t Do Social Media, & He’s Joe Warts & All.”
She changed her tune a few days later, tweeting illiterately, “Good [luck] Today &Everyday @JoeBiden .I 4Got 4 Min. What a Good,Wise,Kind Man You Are,But I WONT Turn My Back On You Now That You’re Struggling,” later adding, “Joe’s Made Mistakes, like all of Us, but I Believe He Would Be Honest,Smart, ‘CIVIL’ PRES. Who Doesn’t Have 2 Learn On The Job.”
Strangely, Cher’s endorsement didn’t translate into support at the Nevada caucus, which Biden lost to Bernie Sanders by a margin of 40 to 19% support.
