Cher Blames Trump and “His flying Monkeys” for Iowa Disaster
Democrat supporter Cher released a conspiracy theory that blamed President Trump for the disaster that had happened during the Iowa caucus.
In her Twitter post, the singer wrote: “I BELIEVE IT WAS trump AND HIS FLYING MONKEYS WHO DESTROYED’IOWA. NOT KIDDING.TRUMP IS ABOUT TO SHOW U ‘EVIL’ WE NEVER KNEW EXISTED.”
She shared the tweet with a picture of flying monkeys from the fictional characters in the movie The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Aside from her baseless tweets, people were quick to point out the singer’s vanity. “I love how you randomly save photos of yourself,” a twitter user replied after she had noticed that the monkeys were taken as a screenshot, and on her third photo featured Cher’s gallery which included a photo of herself.

Cher did not explain how she had come up with such a theory or the president’s involvement in the Iowa caucuses. However, even her fellow Democrat supporters and Democratic nominees have aired out their concern over the disastrous caucus.
Even Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s aide realized the impact that the delays have. “With every passing minute that there is a delay, we worry that the process will lose credibility,” the aide said.
During Tuesday’s election, the Iowa Democratic Party had faced a massive backlash after it had failed to deliver timely results from the 2020 United States presidential primary election results. Thousands of voters have stayed up all night waiting for the results, to no avail.
While the opposition cannot prove that Trump has anything to do with the disaster, the Iowa National committee wrote that it was due to an “app failure” which prevented other precincts to call and announce the results.
As the committee released in their official statement “We found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results, in addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report. This is simply a reporting issue, the app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion. The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”
Moreover, Cher’s prejudice against the president did not stop with her conspiracy theories. The singer had also resulted in name-calling, as she pointed out Trump’s handshake snub to Pelosi during Wednesday’s State of the Nation Address.
Cher posted “MISUNDERSTOOD..HE SNUBBED HER,” tweeted Cher. “IVE BEEN ALIVE THROUGH 13 PRESIDENTS,& HES THE MOST VENGEFUL ILLITERATE,LIMP, IMITATION OF A MAN EVER. HE’S ALSO AFRAID OF HER,” the singer concluded.

HE’S ALSO AFRAID OF HER— Cher (@cher) February 5, 2020
Cher also responded to Pelosi’s temper tantrum as she ripped the president’s speech in half. “OMG JUST SAW NANCY RIP trump SPEACH INTO PIECES IF SHE JUST KICKED HIS MAMMOTH ASS‼️NANCY COULD KICK IT…HE HAS BONE SPURS PS .HE”USED” EVERYONE IN HIS SPEACH AS A PROP.HE♥️VETS,BUT JUST SAID 64 TROOPS “JUST HAD HEADACHES.ITS NOT LIKE LOSING A HE SAYS HE BELIEVES” the pop icon wrote.
