The following article, Pop Has Been Cher Melts Down, Claims Trump will Put Gays ‘In Internment Camps’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Cher is at it again with another wholly unhinged tweet attacking President Donald Trump and his supporters, this time with a new conspiracy theory insisting that Trump intends to put gay people in “internment camps” if he is-re-elected.
The Half Breed singer’s tweet was in reaction to a BuzzFeed story reporting that Donald Trump has become the first U.S. president to recognize LGBTQ Pride month.
But Cher was incensed by the president’s recognition of the month and hyperbolically accused Trump of looking to put gays in “internment camps.”
“Trump’s 1st Republican Pres.2 Acknowledge LGBT Pride Month. IF trump WINS 2020,HE’LL BE 1ST 2 STRIP U OF’ALL’PROTECTIONS,& PUT U IN INTERNMENT CAMPSHE’LL PUT HISON UR SHOULDER & STICK HISIN UR BACK.WAKE UP & SMELL PAIN,HIS BASE WANTS U GONE,” Cher screamed on her Twitter account.

The BuzzFeed story came on the heels of a Friday announcement by the White House recognizing LGBT Pride Month.
“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation,” the White House statement read, “let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”
While Cher may have become still more unhinged due to her Trump Derangement Syndrome, a former leader of the GOP gay group, the Log Cabin Republicans, was enthused by the administration’s support.
“Been waiting all my life for a Republican to show this kind of leadership,” Gregory T. Angelo, former president of the Log Cabin Republicans, tweeted on Friday. “THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP!”

The group’s current chief, Jerri Ann Henry, also told BuzzFeed she was “thrilled” with the administration’s recognition.
“In his statement, the president mentioned his support of the many LGBTQ individuals around the world who are wrongfully persecuted for their sexual orientation,” she said. “We look forward to working with him to ensure the policies in this country are nondiscriminatory as well.”
Trump has also announced a campaign to convince world leaders to put an end to the criminalization of homosexuality, especially in the Muslim world where many countries execute gays.
