Pop icon Cher took to Twitter Thursday to blast the House’s passage of the American Health Care Act, lamenting that the bill’s signature into law would threaten to cut funding to treat her asthma.
In her signature tweeting style of using emojis for words, the 70-year-old singer called the passage of the AHCA on Thursday “insanity,” and called President Donald Trump a “mad King George III president.”
In an earlier tweet, the singer called GOP representatives in the House “inhumane” and predicted millions of people would die as a result of the legislation, which has not yet cleared the Senate or been signed by the president. Cher also urged New Yorkers to “show this idiot what he’s in for.” The president visited his hometown Thursday evening for the first time since he took office in January following the vote on the health care bill.
The pop star was just one of numerous celebrities to use their social media accounts Thursday to voice their displeasure with the House’s passage of the AHCA.
