When music icon Cher becomes the Democratic Party's voice of reason, we are a long, long way from Kansas. Now, after blasting the idea of flooding sanctuary cities with illegal immigrants, the "Moonstruck" star has dared to question socialist Bernie Sanders' radical proposal of allowing incarcerated felons to vote in elections.
In a now-deleted tweet, Cher openly pondered: "Does Bernie Sanders Really Believe Ppl In Prison Who Are Murders!? Rapists!? Child Molesters!? BOSTON BOMBERS ... STILL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE!?"

It remains to be seen whether Cher will be campaigning for President Trump or not in 2020.
Cher did not explain why she deleted her tweet; the second of its kind this month in which she allowed herself to publicly express the inner-stirrings of some non-radical thoughts. Just last week, she blasted the idea of sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities by tweeting: "I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own How Can it Take Care Of More."
Speaking at a CNN town hall on Monday, Sen. Sanders (D-VT), the current 2020 front-runner, actually said that voting rights should be extended not just to convicted felons who have already served time (a Democratic Party constituency, BTW) but to men and women currently sitting behind bars, which would include: murderers, kidnappers, rapists, child molesters, thieves, and terrorists, like the Boston Marathon bomber.
