Midler is apologizing for a tweet that caused a social media backlash when she compared the struggle of women with the history of racism. The singer and actress wrote that women “are the n-word of the world” and “They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.” Midler was quoting the title of a 1972 song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

When actress Bette Midler isn’t engaging in racism by insinuating that black Republicans are paid tokens, she’s slut-shaming conservative women who’ve stepped forward to give their #MeToo stories.


And when she’s not conveniently forgetting that prominent, powerful minority Republican women exist, she’s proving that she has an unhealthy obsession with First Lady Melania Trump. Specifically, her looks and her sex life.

Here’s her latest attempt at “poetry” directed at the First Lady, chock full of sexism and bigotry (note how she ‘fakes’ Melania Trump’s accent):

A quick analysis of Midler’s Twitter timeline shows she’s taken many swipes at Mrs. Trump since Donald Trump was elected. Most of her tweets have a familiar theme, you’ll notice:

Here’s a bigger version of the tweet she retweeted, so you can see what she was applauding:

Some of her other unhinged tweets about Melania Trump include:


Red State‘s own Brad Slager had probably the best take on Midler’s latest attempt at shaming a Republican woman:

Something else to note: Midler, like most other “feminist” Democrats, will tell you it’s dehumanizing and regressive to put another woman down, but they never seem to apply that rule to Republican women. In fact, in most instances on Midler’s Twitter feed, when she criticizes a woman it’s a Republican or a conservative. And they are usually attacks that are personal in nature. Very nasty.


It’s depraved, but it’s who and how she is – in spite of the “woke” creds she desperately wants the world to believe she possesses.

Related to Brad’s tweet, here’s a reminder of another controversial tweet Midler posted, back in October. It’s one of the few I’ve seen her delete in response to criticism:

So interesting how someone who laments on how little respect she believes women around the world gets has no issue whatsoever virulently disrespecting another woman because she’s married to a man she disagrees with politically.

Be best, Bette. Or something.
