Bette Midler Tweets That Blacks Attending Trump Rally Were Paid

On Wednesday morning, Hollywood actress/singer/political guru Bette Midler, who has called President Trump a racist, issued a racist tweet of her own, deciding that black men pictured in the background behind President Trump at a Trump rally must have been paid to be there and labeling them “blackground.” She tweeted, “Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be ‘blackground’?”

On Sunday, Midler called Trump a racist, tweeting to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, “Dear Jack Dorsey, why don’t you help your country and your planet, by kicking #Trump off of #Twitter? Or shutting down until the next election? You’ve made more than enough money and Trump is strangling the free world w/his racist bile. Be strong. You can improve the course of history!”

Midler’s animus for Trump has evidenced itself in myriad ways since his election; in June she deleted a tweet in which she wrote, “He actually looks better here! Maybe someone in his camp can gently give him a shiv. I mean, shove.” Just prior to that Midler had apologized for sharing a quote from Trump that was fake in which he supposedly said in 1998 that Republicans were “the dumbest group of voters in the country.” She added, “He certainly knew his crowd.” Trump responded, “Washed up psycho @BetteMidler was forced to apologize for a statement she attributed to me that turned out to be totally fabricated by her in order to make ‘your great president’ look really bad. She got caught, just like the Fake News Media gets caught. A sick scammer!”

Back in July 2017, Midler tweeted, “If there is a crisis, like 9/11 or the 2008 meltdown, we as a nation, will not survive under this administration. We have no leader!”

In May 2018, Midler claimed that Trump’s decision to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem was the cause of Palestinians rioting on the Israel-Gaza border and the ensuing reaction from Israel Defense Forces, writing, “Fifty-two people die in protest over moving American Embassy to Jerusalem. Thanks, asshole! Your uninformed and demented actions have consequences! Don’t you get it? Those people had families too!”

As The Daily Wire noted, “It never entered the intellectual giantess’ head that the Palestinians have been conducting these riots for weeks, that the riots are not ‘peaceful protests,’ and that Hamas, which engineered the riots, is hell-bent on murdering Jews and eliminating the Jewish state.”

In May 2019, Midler mocked Trump voters, asserting that they are illiterate bumpkins. Bloviating about President Trump not releasing his tax returns, Midler tweeted, “There’s a theory that Trump doesn’t want his taxes released because if his base reads that he’s not as rich as he says, they might lose confidence in him. His base can read?”

In November 2018, Midler took a shot at Melania Trump, posting an old modeling photo of the First Lady from a 2000 British GQ shoot with a caption many condemned as sexist. “The dry cleaning bill for the upholstery on Air Force One must be insane,” wrote Midler. The 72-year-old supposed feminist added a “#FLOTITS” hashtag, an intentionally adjusted acronym for “First Lady of the United States.”
