You can always count on Hollywood celebs for the best meltdowns and freakouts. There’s something about the coastal bubble that really makes them intolerant to the point where they feel absolutely no shame about publicly devolving into hysterics.
While there are many out there who do it, no one does it quite like Bette Midler.
Trump pinned a tweet to his Twitter profile that shows various yard signs showing Trump promoting his candidacy well past his term limit. The tweet is, of course, supposed to be one that people can tweet out to show their unwavering support of Trump.
Midler, however, didn’t seem to get the joke. She tweeted out, and I quote:
HE PINNED THIS. YOU THINK THIS IS A JOKE, DON’T YOU? IT’S NOT. HE MEANS IT. HE WILL CHANGE THE RULES AND HIS ENABLERS WILL LET HIM. IF HE WINS AGAIN, HE WILL RULE YOU UNTIL HE DIES, YOU DIE, OR BOTH. THEN…YOU’LL GET IVANKA.

Trump is definitely not trying to be President past his term limit, nor would he survive to many of the dates posted in the video, especially the “4 eva” part of it. Still, this seems lost on Midler who hit the caps lock and didn’t look back.
Seeing that Midler was in desperate need of help, the internet came to soothe the savage beast raging inside the actress.
Calm down please.

I’m seriously worried about you. Because you’re likely tweeting this from your Malibu mansion while you look at the dolphins, your portfolio goes up and your cleaning lady dusts your plants. If you want to take action — fine — go volunteer, I promise you it helps with despair!

Not that it mattered. Most people just rubbed the wound a little sorer.
We're going to put his brain in a robot body and he will be President forever. pic.twitter.com/ogfCRdKwV4

All jokes aside, if someone could check on Midler, it’d be really appreciated. She’s clearly going through a hard time. Besides, this is more along the lines of what her life is every day now.
This is how she felt after she woke up and realized he’s still our president. 🤘🏼 pic.twitter.com/OXI4KPpgjI
