Bette Midler Crosses Line With New Trump Insult, Calls POTUS A Murderer For Response To Crisis

Hollywood star Bette Midler is at it again. Her favorite pastime is bashing President Trump but this time she took it too far.

She made headlines with a scandalous social media post where she called President Trump stupid and callous.

But she was just getting started. She then went where no one should go – she called President Trump a murderer. From Fox News: The “Hocus Pocus” star spends a lot of her time on social media criticizing Trump and his administration on a myriad of issues.


On Saturday, the 74-year-old actress shared an article accusing the president of failing to rise to meet the challenge that the COVID-19 pandemic created. In her commentary on the article, Midler laid the blame for the more than 140,000 deaths in the United States at Trump’s feet.

“One of the saddest documents you will ever read,” she wrote, referencing a New York Times article titled “Inside Trump’s Failure: The Rush to Abandon Leadership Role on the Virus.”

She added: “#DonaldJTrump is a murderer. Stupid, callous uncaring; all in all the biggest catastrophe to ever befall our poor nation. I can’t stop crying.”

Midler’s rebuke of the president’s response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic comes as cases continue to soar in the United States and the country draws a stark contrast to other nations that have successfully lowered the infection rate.

As of Monday morning, the novel coronavirus has infected more than 14,508,892 people across 188 countries and territories, resulting in at least 606,206 deaths. In the U.S., all 50 states plus the District of Columbia have reported confirmed cases of COVID-19, tallying more than 3,773,260 illnesses and at least 140,534 deaths.
