Hollywood actress Bette Midler, known for her comical performances as well as her sometimes caustic antics, sort of apologized to the Twitter community on June 4 for posting a slanderous fake meme of President Donald Trump on June 2. It was a meme that was created 3-4 years ago.

The meme is an older photo of the president carrying a false quote of him saying that if he were to run for president, he’d run as a Republican because they’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. The image gives credit to People Magazine.

Midler tweeted the near-apology along with a link to an article explaining the entire debunked meme.  

Midler is a celebrity known to be a vocal advocate on social media of leftist ideals, and often tweets politically charged comments.

Although Midler deleted the fake meme tweet that she eventually apologized for, @AmandaPresto tweeted a saved image of Bette Midler’s tweet with the debunked Trump meme.

Midler didn’t stop blaming President Trump after her quasi-apology. In fact, she blamed him further when someone critiqued her tweet, saying, “It’s very truthy.”

“I have to say, [it] sounded so much like ‘All Mexicans are rapists’” she said—though Trump never said this—“and ‘I’m the greatest Predident [sic]’ that I bought it!”

“I think we should investigate who created that tweet! They really captured his tone and his personality! What a textual impersonation!!” she added.

Then, about nine minutes later she then retweeted @byDonkeys’ tweet slamming supporters of the president, saying Britain loved former President Obama and not President Trump. Midler added a comment to the retweet, saying, “This, however, is real. Suck it up, Trumpsters!!!”

She followed up the slam on Trump supporters with complaints about having to fact check quotes. “That should take up, oh, maybe 23 of the 24 hours in the day?,” referring to so much false information on the internet, then blaming the president by adding, “most of them generated by Trump himself, that the task of separating the truth from the lies is impossible.”

Insulting her own supporters

One of her more outrageous tweets wasn’t even about Republicans or President Trump, but about women in general.

Midler seems to consider herself a champion of the disenfranchised and marginalized, yet she tweeted on Oct. 4, 2018—a tweet that has since been deleted but saved and retweeted:

“‘Women, are the n-word of the world.’ Raped, beaten,  enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.”

She tweeted an explainer a few hours later saying, “I gather I have offended many by my last tweet. ‘Women are the…etc’ is a quote from Yoko Ono from 1972, which I never forgot. It rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not. This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.”
