Bette Midler has taken to Twitter to unleash even more fury on members of the GOP. This time, her anger was focused solely on Republican, Mitch McConnell, who recently stated that he would not even bother to meet with anyone President Obama nominates for Supreme Court Justice. The Divine Miss M expressed the frustration that all liberals are feeling at this moment in time, when conservatives are literally out of control and threatening to ruin the entire country.
This is certainly not the first time Miss Midler has taken to social media to let loose on dirty politicians. Last month, Midler tweeted a quote by Joseph Heller that she believed perfectly represented Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump:
“It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character.”
That quote is proof that a-holes like Donald Trump have been around since the beginning of time, and should be handled accordingly. Midler is only saying what the middle class can’t say loud enough. With her 857,000 Twitter followers reading along religiously and hanging on her every word, she is almost now expected to speak out on issues.
Where some stars may see speaking out as a possible career killer, especially for women, Midler stands strong for her beliefs, and doesn’t mince words when it comes to the level of disgust she is feeling about a politician or political issue. And we love her for that. Watch the video below of Bette at her funniest, courtesy of the Jimmy Kimmel Show:
