HOLLYWOOD LEGEND Bette Midler has become the embodiment of everything she professes to hate.
The actress who has spent the past four years accusing Donald Trump of xenophobia took to Twitter yesterday to label his foreign born wife as a mail order bride who can’t speak English.
While watching Melania Trump speak at the Republican Convention Midler tweeted:
As the first lady spoke about the need for civility, Bette Midler was working the Democratic mantra “when they go high, we go low and then we go lower”.
Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) August 26, 2020
Funnily enough, Melania was literally speaking English. And with more fluency than Joe Biden. English is one of several languages she speaks.
Perhaps Bette Midler just didn’t realise that Melania speaks with an accent. You know, like Democrat Ilhan Omar.
We certainly understand that Bette Midler thinks with an accent.
The self-proclaimed anti-racist loves diversity so long as blacks and immigrants behave exactly the way they are all supposed to.
Last year Midler tweeted a photo of a Trump rally with the caption: “Look, there are African American men in this shot. How much did he pay them to be blackground?”
The Hollywood star and Democrat supporter – but I repeat myself – knew blacks could not possibly be at a Trump rally by choice because she knew blacks would never do that because they are blacks.
It’s not that Democrats believe you can tell what a person thinks based on the colour of their skin. Rather, Democrats believe you can tell a person what to think based on the colour of their skin.
Didn’t Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden recently say that if African Americans don’t vote for him “you ain’t black”?
As a sidenote, Bette Midler was an enthusiastic supporter of Harvey Weinstein so, in fairness to the Hocus Pocus star, judging a man by the content of his character is not exactly her strong suit. If Washington is the swamp, Hollywood is the cesspit
But I digress.
What Midler really hates about the Slovenian immigrant who became the first lady of the United States is that she is a Republican. And every Democrat knows that immigrants are not meant to become Republicans or else you might as well have a wall at the border.
“Get that illegal alien off the stage,” Midler tweeted in disgust that Melania Trump did not conform to the loving, tolerant, diverse and inclusive Democrat narrative.
Imagine if a conservative tweeted about an immigrant: “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English”.
But Bette Midler can happily mock people from non-English speaking backgrounds without fear of being cancelled because progressives are the Cancel Culture judges, juries and executioners.
Midler accusing Trump of xenophobia whilst sneering at his immigrant wife’s accent is a classic case of, “Mirror, mirror on the wall…”
The only thing that can be said in the 74-year-old actress’ defence is that when you’re that near the end, capitalising the G in “God” was the smart play.
