Bette Midler: ‘Fascist’ Trump ‘Shames’ America
Leftist Hollywood icon takes another swipe at her president
Liberal singer Bette Midler took yet another swipe at President Donald Trump, telling him that “you tear us down,” while claiming America is in a “battle for its soul…against fascism.”
The leftist Hollywood icon is a frequent critic of the president, often tweeting out outlandish falsehoods.
“You have taught us, Mr. Trump, to expect the worst of you,” Midler said.
“You have met our expectations."
“Right now, our nation is engaged in a battle for its soul, a battle, and this is the crucial part, a battle against fascism,” Midler said.
“You tear us down,” she continued.
“You shame us,” she said.
“We will be silent no longer,” she added.

Midler's remarks come as protests continue across the US following the death of George Floyd.
Democrat-run cities are also joining calls to defund the police force in the light of Floyd's death.
Officials in Minneapolis, Minnesota, also vowed that the city would “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) and “replace” the law enforcement agency.

On Monday, Democrats including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer took a knee as they observe a nearly nine-minute moment of silence for George Floyd at Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol.
Lawmakers, wearing African kente cloth scarves, knelt in the Capitol Visitor Center before holding a press conference to unveil their legislation in response to almost two weeks of nationwide protests over police brutality toward African Americans.
“We are here to honor George Floyd,” Pelosi said before the moment of silence began.
Pelosi and the other lawmakers stood back up after almost nine minutes, though the Speaker needed the help of an aide due to her tall stilettos.
“You see how long it was to have that knee on his neck,” Pelosi said afterward.

Midler, in March, called Trump the “most hated, most repulsive human male on the planet today."
"Well, Don, in breaking news, she’s 100% more likable than you! You are the most hated, most repulsive human male on the planet today, & God knows, there are plenty to choose from.”
