Why are these two talking to each other? There's a history. Cher has slammed Cruz in the past. On Twitter in June, someone asked the singer if she liked Donald Trump or Ted Cruz better; she responded by tweeting, "that's like saying 'would you rather have a Migraine or Throw Up'?"
Cruz has taken some knocks at Cher as well. In an October fundraising email that ticked off the many enemies Cruz has made, Cher is counted as one.
