Hollywood Actress Bette Midler lashed out at President Trump in a very outrageous way in an embarrassing display of ignorance.
Overreacting to a media story, Bette Midler attacked President Trump calling him cruel and malignant.
But the Hollywood actress was just getting warmed up. She went off her rocker and claimed that President Trump will “kill us all” because of his “overwhelming jealousy” of Obama.
“There is no end to the cruelty and malignancy of @realdonaldJtrump and his horrifying administration. His overwhelming jealousy of @BarackObama will kill us all. Obamacare Markets Will Not Reopen, Trump Decides,” she tweeted.
However, she had her facts wrong – many states that have their own exchanges have reopened them and of course, Obamacare already allows you to enroll if you lose your job, you don’t need Trump to ok it.
From healthcare.gov: “If you have just left your job for any reason and lost your job-based health coverage, you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. This means you can enroll in a Marketplace insurance plan any time of year. You usually have 60 days from the day you lose your coverage to enroll.”
Politico also noted that the Affordable Care Act already allows a special enrollment for people who have lost their workplace health plans, with some states that run their own insurance markets having already re-opened enrollment.
Bette Midler responded to the White House’s decision in a tweet, writing that “there is no end to the cruelty and malignancy of @realdDonaldJTrump and his horrifying administration.”
She added: “His overwhelming jealousy of @BarackObama will kill us all.”
Breitbart reported that President Trump campaigned on the promise to “repeal and replace” Obamacare. While the 2017 attempt to repeal the law ultimately failed by a small margin in the Senate, the president successfully eliminated the individual mandate portion of the act. His administration is also backing a lawsuit brought by Republican-held states that is challenging the legality of the law.
Bette Midler has repeatedly voiced her antipathy for the President and his administration on social media. In a post from February, she claimed that if President Trump wins reelection in November “he will rule you until he dies, you die, or both.”
