Trump Attacks “Washed Up Psycho” Bette Midler

Time Magazine reports:

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to call Bette Midler a “washed up psycho” after the actress tweeted a quote falsely attributed to him. Midler had earlier apologized on Twitter for sharing the fake quote, which called Republicans “the dumbest group of voters in the country.”

Midler hit back after Trump insulted her, saying that Trump is responsible for spreading lies.

It’s not the first time Trump has insulted the actress. He has in the past called her “extremely unattractive” and said that she “sucked.” Midler has been a vocal critic of Trump throughout his term, and has often taken to Twitter to share her opinions

Even when he’s correct about a false quote, Trump cannot resist lying. The meme Midler posted was not “totally fabricated by her” and has been floated around the web for years. As for “washed up,” Midler is the 2017 Tony Award winner for Best Actress and will play Bella Abzug in an upcoming Gloria Steinem biopic.
