Cher says she's never hated anyone in her life as much as she hates Donald Trump

Cher has revealed she hates US president Donald Trump more than anyone in the world, calling him "the most vindictive person I've ever witnessed". 

In an interview with the Guardian, the pop music icon said Trump has made the culture in America more "toxic" than ever, explaining: "People who just disagreed with each other before are now enemies." 

Writer Simon Hattenstone, who interviewed Cher for the article, said that the 74-year-old singer was reluctant to even use Trump's name, claiming she sounded "traumatised" while speaking about him. 

"I hate him," she said, adding that "never in her whole life" had she felt that strongly about someone before. 

Cher admitted she "disliked" former president George W Bush - a feeling that bordered on hate when he "started those wars", but declared: "But the one thing I know is he loves America and Trump doesn’t." 

"I hate to even call him a president because all he does is watch TV," she said. 

The 'Strong Enough' hitmaker also slammed Trump's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, insisting: "In my country, the president doesn't believe it has anything to do with him. He doesn't think he has any responsibility to help us." 

Referring to his refusal to concede the election to president-elect Joe Biden, Cher said of Trump: "If [he] can't be in the White House, he's going to burn it down." 

"He's trying to block Joe at every moment. He's the most vindictive person I've ever witnessed. I think he's fighting so hard because he's going to be prosecuted when he gets out of the White House." 

When asked by Hattensone if the current president could end up in prison? Cher replied "oh, I hope so," adding that she would be "dancing around" if that came to fruition.
