In a recent interview with Billboard, former entertainer Cher explained her support for Democrat presidential pick Joe Biden despite a credible accusation of sexual assault against him, saying “You have to vote for the one side you hate the least.”
“I like Joe. I’ve known Joe for a long, long, long time,” Cher said. “I had a meeting once with him and I thought, ‘You know what? This is an honest man.’ It was way before he was with Barack Obama. We had a conversation and he was so painfully honest.” All right, so Cher isn’t the best judge of character.
“You know, everybody’s got faults,” Cher added. “But at least he has a soul and he understands pain,” whatever that means. “He’s also been a politician for a gazillion years” — which Cher apparently thinks is a positive. “I don’t agree with everybody, but in the final analysis, you have to vote for the one side you hate the least.”
And of course, Cher hates President Trump more, although “if I thought that he was really interested in people and came up with something to help, I would give him some props, even though I think he would have nothing to do with it.”
