Actress and singer Bette Midler seized the opportunity to mock Donald Trump last week after he warned that violence would probably occur should Democrats successfully take over the House of Representatives from the GOP in the November midterms.
Trump reported made the remarks to a group of evangelical leaders. He is reported to have said that Democrats would “overturn everything that we’ve done and… they’ll do it quickly and violently. There’s violence. When you look at antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people.”
Midler responded to Trump on his medium of choice, Twitter:
Now Trump’s saying Democrats are going to be “violent” if they win big in November? What are we going to do? Throw our PBS tote bags at them?

Midler is a frequent critic of the president, but she’s really been on a roll lately.
Trump tells a rally tonight, “My mother made the best turkey.” I doubt the woman ever cooked a turkey in her life, unless he means in her uterus.

My fellow Americans: Rudy Giuliani is right: truth isn’t truth. And climate change isn’t real,
and Donald Trump isn’t president! Feels better already,

Washington Post says in his 1st year as Prez, Trump made 2,140 false claims & this year he’s more than doubled that in just 6 months. In a way it’s a miracle. Nobody’s ever seen that much bullshit come out of a horse’s ass.
