On Tuesday, Bette Midler turned to Twitter to slam Democrats for being too soft on Donald Trump, whom she referred to as a “fascist and a “dictator.”
“Democrats haven’t learned a go——d thing. This guy is a fascist, a dictator, and you guys have got to toughen up your game,” Midler tweeted. “You’re too f—ing polite! This is a blood sport to the GOP, and they #playdirty. Men like to kill each other! Get in the ring!!”
Earlier that same day Midler had tweeted her anger over the news that the Department of Justice’s announcement that it would be reducing the sentence of Trump’s longtime ally Roger Stone. Once the DOJ interfered and reduced Stone’s sentence on Trump’s behalf all four prosecutors on the case resigned.
“trump’s DOJ interferes with the Stone case after its own prosecutors suggest 7-9 year term for guilty as f— Roger “Dirty Tricks” Stone,” Midler wrote minutes prior to her tweet about Democrats. “All four prosecutors resign, one leaving government permanently. That’s what trump wants; a DOJ that bends & rubberstamps his every whim.”
Midler has been an outspoken critic of Trump’s since he took office. She used Twitter to attack Republicans for voting against witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump. She also spoke out after Trump was quickly acquitted by the Republican-run Senate.
