Cher lashed out at Donald Trump, labeled the president a “nutjob” and claimed “he’ll be shooting someone on 5th Avenue soon.”
The entertainer made the claims in a tweet where she shared Washington Post story about Trump’s decision to grant grace to 11 people this week and the supreme commander’s own statement as the country’s law enforcement officer.
“Tired of hearing officer Say” THIS IS UNFOREASED “, every time the”[nut] Job In Chief “Steps across a line that has NEVER been crossed,” tweeted the 73-year-old singer and actress Wednesday. “COMING SOON The Crazy Fk shoots someone on 5th Ave, & say ‘I could have done this before, I just did’ Don’t choose it.”
The star seemed to refer to Trump’s comment from his 2016 campaign track when he joked about what he could get away with when it comes to his devoted followers.

The singer continued on social media on Wednesday: “[America] He is you [baby], Rock him ‘
Trump, 73, boasted of his relentless support base at a meeting in Iowa four years ago when he used the busy New York area where Trump Tower is located as an example of his power.
“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone and I wouldn’t lose the voters,” Trump boasted.
In a message to the country on Wednesday, the If I Could Turn Back Time singer continued: “He’s your [baby], Rock him. “
Her anger was one of many against Trump. But she was particularly involved in the deposition procedures last month.
The Washington Post article, shared with its 3.7 million followers, mentions how, despite Democrats claiming during the Senate ousting process that POTUS is “not above the law,” his acquittal and actions have proven otherwise.
WaPo uses examples of how Attorney General William Barr has complained that Trump is making his work impossible by regularly commenting publicly on criminal cases.
But the emphasis was on his decision to pardon Edward DeBartolo, Jr., Michael Milken, Ari Friedler, Bernard Kerik, Paul Pogue, David Safavian, Angela Stanton, Rod Blagojevich, Tynice Nichole Hall, Crystal Munoz and Judith Negron.

Her anger was one of many against Trump. She became involved in the accusation proceedings last month
Roger Stone was sentenced to three years on Thursday, and when Tuesday was asked if he wanted to grant him a favor, Trump did not rule it out.
“I didn’t think about it. In the meantime, he’s going through a trial, “Trump said. “But I think he was treated very unfairly.”
The president has denied that he has intervened to force the Justice Department to withdraw a recommendation of seven to nine years in prison for Stone.
Attorney General William Barr supported Trump and said that he did not consult the president before ordering a shorter prison sentence.
After granting leniency to the group, he told reporters on Tuesday: “I can be fully involved. I actually think I am the country’s chief officer. But I chose not to be involved. “
John Yoo, a University of Berkeley, professor at the Berkeley Law School and attorney at the Ministry of Justice during the reign of President George W. Bush, said the constitution gives the president the power Trump claims.
“But while the president is under constitutional leadership, presidents have kept law enforcement at bay as a matter of good policy. Neutrality in law enforcement is important if the government needs to have the credibility and integrity to convince judges and juries, who ultimately pronounce the verdict, “Yoo wrote in an email.
After he had granted 11 people leniency, he told reporters who asked Tuesday about Roger Stone’s conviction: “I can be fully involved. I actually think I am the country’s chief officer. But I chose not to be involved ‘
Roger Stone was sentenced to three years on Thursday, but Trump denies any involvement
Josh Blackman, a professor at South Texas College of Law, agreed with Yoo about Trump’s authority on criminal prosecutions. “The president can delegate that power to the AG, but ultimately the president has the last call,” Blackman wrote in an email.
But Trump’s latest actions condemned the sentencing of more than 2,400 former Ministry of Justice officials who served in democratic and republican governments. In an open letter, they said the department’s rulebook for its lawyers requires impartial decision-making that is isolated from political influence.
‘All DOJ lawyers are well versed in these rules, regulations and constitutional orders. They stand for the statement that political interference in the execution of criminal prosecution is an anathema to the ministry’s core mission and to its sacred obligation to ensure equal justice under the law, “the department’s alumni wrote.
Martin Lederman, a Georgetown professor and former Obama Justice Department official, said on Twitter that Congress, not the president, has the authority to prosecute the attorney general. It is also the Attorney General’s responsibility, Lederman said, to challenge a president who sets an illegal course, “knowing that it could … lead to removal.”
Chris Lu, who led the Obama Cabinet in his first term, said the White House of Obama followed his predecessors by following strict rules about who could communicate with the Department of Justice and on what topics.
“What Trump suggests is at odds with this long-standing precedent and dangerous for the principle of impartial justice,” Lu said.

Financer Michael Milken is known for his pioneering high-yield ‘junk’ bonds.
In March 1989, a federal grand jury accused Milken of 98 counts and fraud and pleaded guilty to six counts of securities and tax violations.
Milken, 73, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his crimes as he led the bond department of investment bank Drexel Burnham Lambert and was fined $ 600 million.
His sentence was later reduced to two years after he cooperated with the federal authorities.
Trump praised Milken’s work on cancer research and said he “has gone around and done incredible work for the world with all his cancer research.”
Milken survived prostate cancer and was a co-founder of the Milken Family Foundation and is chairman of the Milken Institute – the charity fund for research into melanoma, cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Kerik was appointed Commissioner of New York Police by Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City who is now Trump’s personal lawyer.
In June 2006, Kerik pleaded with the Bronx Supreme Court guilty of two ethical violations.
Kerik acknowledged that during the time he was Iraqi Interior Minister – under President George W. Bush – he accepted an interest-free $ 250,000 loan from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer and failed to report this.
In November 2007, Kerik was indicted by a federal grand jury in White Plains, New York on charges of tax fraud and making false statements to the federal government about the loan.
He later pleaded guilty to eight felony taxes and false declaration messages and was sentenced to 48 months in prison and three years of controlled release. That time ended in October 2016.
Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois, was sent to jail for 14 years to ask for bribes, including those for the senate’s seat once owned by Barack Obama and for trying to tear down a children’s hospital.
Blagojevich threatened to withdraw money for the Children’s Memorial Hospital after the chief executive officer had not given a contribution of $ 50,000 to the governor’s campaign.
The 63-year-old has been in the Federal Correctional Institute in Englewood, Colorado since March 15, 2012.
His expected release date was 2024, taking into account two years of honor for good behavior.
In 2009, Blagojevich appeared on NBC’s ‘The Apprentice’, the reality TV program that was subsequently organized by Trump.
The former San Francisco 49ers owner paid $ 400,000 to the former Louisiana Edwin Edwards governor to win a 1998 river boat casino license.
He pleaded guilty to the accusation of not reporting a crime and received a $ 1 million fine and a two-year conditional fine.
He resigned as owner in 1997 after two Louisiana newspapers had reported that he would be charged with gambling fraud. He was also suspended by the NFL for a year.
DeBartolo owned the 49ers for 23 years and won five Super Bowls as their owner.
