Pop icon Cher says that old, out-of-touch Democrats and their flawed messaging is the reason why Donald Trump won the election.
In an extensive interview with Billboard published Friday, the 70-year-old singer said the old Democratic party leaders flat-out failed to connect with younger voters.
“The Democrats f*cked up so bad in their message, and how old [the leadership] is,” Cher said. “You’ve got to pray that old people die before young people can get involved with the party.”
Cher, who helped raise funds for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, said she “told Hillary she should have a group of millennials give their ideas about government.”
In January, the singer participated in the star-studded anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington.
