Just days after sinking to new lows with a despicable slut-shaming tweet about former Sen. Al Franken’s #MeToo accuser Leeann Tweeden, unhinged Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Bette Midler is at it again.
Midler’s latest target is black Trump supporters. Apparently in her warped mind, the only way a black person can show support for Trump is if they are paid to do it:
Other Hollywood celebrities weighed in and absolutely blasted her for it:
This is one of the most racist, degrading "jokes" I've seen on Twitter & that's saying a lot. We get it Bette, you hate Trump & that's your right but to imply Black men have to be PAID to celebrate their OWN political views is pure and REAL racism. And "BLACKGROUND"?? WTF??!! https://t.co/7PXH75tf8i

Really, Bette? REALLY? @bettemidler You’re this crazy to insinuate black Americans have absolutely no mind or values of their own & would only support their country & @realdonaldtrump for ‘money’? SMH you probably think they’re all pimps & black women like me are just hoes, too? pic.twitter.com/CUswGd1jEL

Macdonald, by the way, also slammed Midler for her tweet about Tweeden:
Middler’s insulting and, frankly, unAmerican insinuation that black voters should by default be toeing the liberal line is reminiscent of Democratic Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s Netroots Nation call to arms from earlier this month where she said this to the liberal audience:
Rep Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice” pic.twitter.com/2NIj5Vvcor

Pressley’s rant inspired North Carolina Trump supporter Shemeka Michelle to post her own video asking if her black voice met with Pressley’s approval.
Michelle issued a video response to Midler’s tweet Thursday afternoon and WENT. OFF:
I said I’d wait, but you took too long.
Black men are NOT whores and Trump is NOT their pimp.
Whether you agree with their politics or not, they have the right to choose & the intelligence to do so! pic.twitter.com/xUAIFsDko8
