After Bette Midler Puts Down West Virginia for Manchin Vote, the Governor Gives His Dog's Opinion

Count me among those who never thought “Miss ‘M'” was all that “divine” in the first place, but other than “drunk-tweeting Cher,” I’m hard-pressed to think of a more buffoonish character on Twitter than Bette Midler.

Our story begins with Midler going full-metal crazy train against the entire state of West Virginia, after Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin refused to support the laughably-named Freedom to Vote Act — AKA: Freedom to Cheat Act — which among other dishonest Democrat schemes would wrest control of presidential elections from states to the federal government. The bottom line: Democrats are not about making it easier to vote; they are hellbent on making it easier to cheat. But, you already knew that.

Ladies and gentlemen, Bette Midler:

What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible. He sold us out. He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out.

Ooh, “nicely” played. Hillary “Basket of Deplorables” Clinton, Barack “They cling to their guns and religion” Obama, and Joe “Domestic terrorism from white supremacists is the most lethal terrorist threat in the homeland” Biden were seen furiously nodding in approval.

Needless to say, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice was not amused by Midler’s ridiculous criticism of his state in late December, but in typical fashion, he busted out his own style of humor on Thursday — with an assist from his dog — to let Midler know exactly what “they” thought about her idiocy.

Justice concluded his 2022 State of the State address by bringing Babydog to the lectern, picking her up, then turning her rear end to the audience.

As reported by WNS-TV in West Virginia, Justice laid it out in no uncertain terms:

Babydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there, kiss her hiney.

Which was met by a standing ovation from the West Virginia Legislature.

Any questions, Bette?

In an earlier COVID-19 press conference, noted WSN-TV, Justice elaborated his case against Midler — and by extension, the entirety of the bitter left — and her asinine attack.

Bette, it’s cruel, and it’s really, really unfair. You know, we’ve had a struggle, just like anybody’s had a struggle, but just think about what we’ve done. In the last few years, we have become the diamond in the rough that everybody’s missed.

We have the four most beautiful seasons on the planet. Absolutely, we have the very best people, and I would welcome you to come and see these people. See these people that really care. People that love and appreciate what {sic] others by what they do.

Given that leftists — including Democrat lawmakers — are wont to say ridiculous crap they know full-well is ridiculous crap but do so solely for the purpose of political expediency, I’m sometimes inclined to put the silly ramblings of Better Midler, fellow Mensa member Joy Behar, and other loony geniuses in the same category.

This is not one of those times. On the contrary, it is unadulterated, left-wing elitism at its worst.
