Bette Midler has reached another low point for Hollywood, after she attacked and mocked first lady Melania Trump as her feud with President Trump kicked into high gear.
The Deadline has reported that Bette Midler is back on the Trump stump via Twitter. This time, she composed a bit of doggerel that references the President’s wife, Melania Trump.
There once was a girl from Slovenia
Who now lives right on Pennsylvinia
To the East Room she’ll flee
From her husband’s wee wee
While he plays with his own schizophrenia
As predicted, the poem was praised by the anti-Trump crowd and was stronglly condemned from the Trump supporters.
President Trump and Midler have been going at each other in various venues for a while.
The most recent quote that raised President Trump’s ire came in a Midler tweet that called Republicans “the dumbest group of voters in the country” and was inaccurately attributed to President Trump. Bette Midler later apologized for her mistake. “This quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ’15-16. Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like [Trump] that I believed it was true!”
Earlier this month during a Piers Morgan interview, President Trump called Midler “a washed-up psycho” for sharing the fake quote about him and later repeated the name-calling in his own tweet.
The war on social between the two eventually captured the attention of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who called President Trump’s tweets about Bette Midler during the 75th anniversary of D-Day “astounding,” and not in a good way.
Midler has also won support from Matthew Modine, a member of SAG-AFTRA running to unseat president Gabrielle Carteris. “I’m told the leader of the free world squeaked that the Divine Ms. M is a ‘washed up psycho,’” Modine told Deadline. “I wish we all had half the chutzpah, temerity, humanity, love of nature and cheek as Bette Midler.”
