Singer-actor Bette Midler has no time for Donald Trump's lies. She has been calling out the President since day one of his tenure and the actor has amped up the pressure on the President since the coronavirus outbreak. Midler has repeatedly pinned the blame on the President for the deaths of thousands of Americans. On the other hand, Trump has been blaming poor media coverage of what he believes is an incredible response to the pandemic. For perspective, more than 158,000 people in America have died from the coronavirus.

This week, Trump tweeted: FAKE NEWS IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! Bette Midler lashed out at the President, tweeting: Shut the fuck up, you nitwit. YOU are the enemy of the people...the news didn't kill 153,000 people. YOU DID. Midler has been particularly critical of the President's poor response to the coronavirus. Bette Midler called the President a murderer for the rising death toll in America. She recently shared a New York Times story titled Inside Trump’s Failure: The Rush to Abandon Leadership Role on the Virus and wrote: One of the saddest documents you will ever read. Donald J Trump is a murderer. Stupid, callous uncaring; all in all the biggest catastrophe to ever befall our poor nation. I can’t stop crying. Even as America's death toll crossed the 10,000, Midler said, "No matter what Donald Trump says, he didn’t do a 'good job.'"

 

 

She had also pointed out Trump's obsession with TV ratings even as America struggled to contain the spread of the virus. Midler tweeted: Every aspect of Trump’s crisis management has been annexed by his psychopathology. As Americans die, he boasts about his television ratings. As Americans die, he crows that he’s No. 1 on Facebook, which isn’t close to true. But it is true that all eyes are on him. She said Trump was loving all the media attention"He’s got a captive audience — an attention addict's dream come to life," said Midler, before reminding him that he will forever be remembered for his mismanagement of the crisis. "It’s just that he, like all narcissistic personalities, has no clue how disgracefully — how shamefully, how deplorably — he’ll be enshrined in memory."

 

Midler's tweet was in response to Trump's tweet claiming record ratings. Trump had quoted from a New York Times article to boast about the ratings of his daily press briefings. He tweeted: President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’ Numbers are continuing to rise

 

She also lashed out at Trump's attempts to trash vote by mail. "Donnie, you are the silliest man alive! You vote by mail, so why can’t the rest of us vote by mail? Why do you keep saying it’s the most dangerous method of casting a ballot? What do you know about voting by mail that we don’t know? Have you been casting multiple ballots again?  asked Midler on Twitter. Republicans have turned their back on Trump after he suggested delaying the elections because of potential fraudulent voting via vote by mail. The President made the claims without providing any evidence to back up his claims. Midler referred to the incident and tweeted: Mitch McConnell is privately telling GOP candidates to distance themselves from Trump if they need to. Welp, they can stand 6,000 feet away, and wear 10 masks. It’s too late. They’re all infected with #Moronavirus.

She also tweeted about Trump's obsession with Obama: Yesterday, Delusional Don tweeted that he “beat Obama 4 years ago.” Obama lives rent-free in his head! Which is still a terrible deal, because I hear most Trump properties have bed bugs.
