When actress Bette Miller isn’t shrieking about President Trump allegedly “inciting” deranged racist gunmen to “do his dirty work”, the left-wing hacktivist is engaging in other liberal double standards. Most notable among them is victim-shaming conservative women who have shared their #MeToo stories, and going on racist rants about black Trump supporters.
Midler, who fancies herself as the the Empress of The Resistance™, wrote a warped poem on Twitter Tuesday that focused on who Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) recently described as a “common enemy”: Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Here’s what Midler posted (language warning):
Old McConnell has a farm
Where no white man will come to harm
He just wants a home
Where no minorities roam
So no one has a dick bigger than his.

The problem? McConnell has been married to Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao since 1993:
Except his wife, Elaine Chao is a minority (Asian American). You are a fraud! pic.twitter.com/YRQ4AWm8Ei

I'd like you to meet Elaine Chao, Leader McConnell's wife of 26 years. I'm sure you can find her roaming around their home on any given day pic.twitter.com/MK0ljywHPR

Pretty sure Elaine Chao is a minority who lives in his home.
But you do you, white girl.

So sad to see a 73 year old shell of a former star reduced to this. By the way Cocain Mitch is married to Elaine Chao, who is an immigrant and a member of a visible minority, so your joke doesn't even work on the most basic level.

Mitch McConnell’s wife is Elaine Chao who was born in Taipei, Taiwan. She came to the US at age 8. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College and Harvard University. She the first Asian American woman in U.S. history to be appointed to a President's Cabinet. “No minorities roam”?

His wife, Elaine Chao, is Asian. They’ve been married for decades.
Shame. I loved you as an actress, but you’re insane and also apparently racist. https://t.co/08r616N2Bi

Now, it’s quite possible that Midler does know that McConnell is married to Chao, and wrote the tweet anyway. It wouldn’t be the first time a female Democrat pretended a conservative female “didn’t count” because they refused to march in lockstep with the feminist left.
Either way, it’s not a good look for Midler, who really should spend more time learning how to act like a normal, civilized human being for a change.
