"I'm here for multiple reasons, but I'm here one out of love and one out of fear," she told the audience in a video posted by an attendee. "Because I'm so frightened for what's going to happen to this particular community. I know there's going to be other people, other minorities that are going to be totally screwed as well, but I honestly fear for your safety."

She spoke of Trump's running mate Mike Pence, which earned boos from the crowd, and his anti-LGBT history. "I fear for you because I know what they will try to do -- they will try to turn back every clock, they will try to take back every one of your rights," Cher said, comparing the issue to women who have lose "their rights in such unbelievable ways. I feel like, 'What happened to the '70s? We already fought this battle.'" 

Moving on to the subject of Trump, Cher said Trump doesn't want to be president -- "he wants the adulation, he doesn't give a sh-- about the work." 

"Do you remember Fun with Dick and Jane? It's like a racist Fun with Dick and Jane!" she said. "He doesn't mean we want to Make America Great Again, he means we want to make America straight and white. He just says the weirdest sh--..."

Cher also poked fun at Trump's "LGBT" gaffe during the convention, saying the acronym "like he just learned it!" 

She summed up her thoughts on Trump: "I just think he's a f---ing idiot."

She said she tried to compare Trump to world leaders (Adolf Hitler, Brexit's Boris Johnson) but she couldn't come up with the perfect analogy in the political world, she had to turn to movies: "And then I thought 'Oh my god, Patty McCormack in The Bad Seed,'" she said, referencing the film's young murderous character, explaining that both Trump and the fictional character are narcissists and don't care who they hurt. 

"I just wish he would fall off the face of the earth," Cher added, sharing her fears for a Trump-led country in case Clinton loses the election.
