Manafort Arrest: Cher Blasts Trump
It probably isn’t all that consequential in terms of how the matter ultimately plays out, but, for what it’s worth, singer/ actress/ leftist whackjob Cher appears to be very excited by the news that Paul Manafort and his business partner/protege Rick Gates turned themselves in to federal authorities due to charges related to their long-before-working-for-the-Trump-Presidential-campaign association with the Podesta brothers.

Monday morning, Cher expressed herself on Twitter using ALL-CAPS and an emoji: “WHY DO ALL“TRUMP”ROADS LEAD TO RUSSIA”
The emoji and use of ALL-CAPS are self-explanatory enough, but it is not clear why the singer of “Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves” used quotation marks around the President’s name.
Some of the reaction on Twitter was other than approving of Cher, and there was even a little bit of concern for Cher’s mental health, probably not the first time that has been the case:
Hi , Well , I think many Politicans "Roads" lead there. Look at the Clintons and the " overnight" advanced technology to China n da pardons

On the other hand, some were titillated by Cher’s effort, e.g. Ryan Kendall (@rmk2145), who responded to the tweet with: “And why do ALL @cher roads lead to FABULOUS?”, Immediatelty
