Cyndi Lauper wants to have more than just fun—she also wants to have a qualified person running the United States.
That's why she took to the radio—KOGO's Morning News in San Diego—to express her opinions on the current race for the White House:
A reality show is not credential to be president The things that he says are appalling to me and shocking. I was so shocked when he started to talk about the LGBT community, when in fact, people working who did amazing work on his Celebrity Apprentice show were gay. And you don’t talk about your employees like that, ever.
She wrapped by saying Trump has said stuff she's “never in my whole entire life heard except, you know, Hitler.”
Cyndi's old former touring partner, Cher, also hates Donald Trump, and is also not shy to explain why—as in this interview with MSNBC.
Cher dazzled her diehard LGBT fans—and Hillary Clinton's—in Miami this week, taking a few moments to praise us for our refusal to abandon her during the lowpoints of her 51-year (!) career:
I am a terrible speaker—I'm not, like, kidding, I'm a terrible speaker. So I wrote down some stuff ... can you hear me well? ... because I wanted to not forget anything and I'm nervous, so ... First of all, I'm here because [gay people and I] have had a relationship, in one way or another, since I was 9 years old. When I was 9, you know, there were lots of men around me—very cool, my father, my mother's friends, we had artists, everyone I knew, like artists and actors and whatever, and then one day my mother brought home these two guys and I thought, “Oh, God, these guys are so much fun—why are they different?” Hairdressers. And I loved them so much. We went to Palm Springs and it was one of the greatest weekends of my life and I was 9 and I could tell then, okay? At 9! At 9, I knew that we were destined to be togther. One thing that's kinda serious. Well, it's kinda serious for me. You know, I've been doing this for 51 years ... [makes gagging gesture] and I've had many, many, many ups and downs in my career and through it all, you guys never left.

Flawless Kim Cattrall just turned 60, is probably having bendy, bendy sex somewhere.
Reports are that Cher was in fine form at her Fire Island fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, where my buddy Rich Ferraro, formerly of GLAAD, quotes her as stating that Trump's the worst person she's ever seen. Let's not even talk about heard!
For just $1,000 (and the cost of getting out there and staying overnight), one could get a pic with the icon. (In P-Town, I believe it's $5,000.)
Beneficiary of white privilege Andy Cohen is probably one of the few to get to take an instantly shareable—and Cherable—pic with the icon, and it's suitably adorbs:
And for you weasel-faced Republican gays:
Roland Emmerich official despicable: “Stonewall was a white event—let's be honest.” Huh? P.S. Your movie was embarrassing on every level.

Cher was ecstatic to embrace her pick for POTUS in 2016, Hillary Clinton, at last night's She's With Us concert in L.A., which featured musical performances by the likes of John Legend, Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, and more.
Cher said of Hillary:
As you might have heard, last month I turned 100 years old ... Okay, I turned 70, but it's the same s***. I've been alive through 11 presidents, and when I was young, I didn't even know if was possible for a women to be president of the United States. I want to tell you that when Clinton ran for Senate, they asked me if I wanted to spend some time with her at a tea party gathering where she would talk to women. I was so interested in what she had to say, she was so different.
After about the third conversation with these groups of women, I told her, “You're so nice and funny and so great—why are you not like this all the time? I love you, you can hang with me.”
I've known her for a long time now and I have to say that no matter which way the political winds have blown at any moment, her moral compass has always pointed towards grace, justice for genders, and justice for sexual orientation, which is big for me. All of those things are important to me.
Cher also took a moment to put the blast on Donald Trump:
When I see Trump talking, I just want to blow my brains out. Well, maybe not my brains, but I'm just like, “What are you talking about? Jesus!” I know that Hillary fights for equality for all people and we are no good unless all of us are equal.
Lindsey Graham also can't even with Trump—he has rescinded his already-tepid endorsement from last month, citing Trump's racist diatribes.
In case Cher hasn't persuaded you to vote today—all you residents of California, New Jersey, Montana, New Mexico, North and South Dakota—maybe Bernie booster Eric Angelo can help:
