Bette Midler Implodes: Trump 'Should Be Arrested for Attempted Murder' of Joe Biden
Hollywood star goes on bizarre rant on social media
Hollywood star Bette Midler has imploded by making bizarre allegations against President Donald Trump on social media.
According to the singer/actor, "Donald Trump should be arrested for attempted murder."
She claimed, without evidence, that Trump tried to "murder" Democrat Joe Biden during last year's presidential debates.
Now Midler is calling on authorities to arrest Trump for "attempted murder," alleging he deliberately tried to infect Joe Biden with the coronavirus during a televised debate last year.
In an impassioned post on Twitter early Friday, Midler claimed Trump knew “full well he was positive” before the debate.
She accuses Trump of deliberately turning up too late to be tested.
Trump then “screeched, sputtered, spit, and foamed at the mouth, hoping to infect Joe,” Midler alleged, again, without evidence.
#DonaldTrump should be arrested for attempted murder. He tried to infect & kill #JoeBiden at the debate; by turning up too late to be tested, knowing full well he was positive; then screeched, sputtered, spit, and foamed at the mouth, hoping to infect Joe. He IS the devil.— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) December 3, 2021
At the time of writing, Twitter has yet to "fact check" Midler's claims or apply a warning label to her post.
Midler’s accusations appear to stem from a new book by Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows.
The book states that the president tested positive for the coronavirus three days before the first presidential debate with Biden in September 2020.
Meadows said that after Trump tested positive, he took another test using a more modern system that showed up negative, leading staff to believe he could still attend the debate.
“The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News,” Trump said in a statement this week.
“In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate.”
Bette Midler has used her massive social media following to champion physical violence against certain conservative politicians, including Trump and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
She urged Joe Biden to kick then-President Trump “in the nuts” during the very same presidential debate.
I have to say this to#VicePresidentBiden, who is much more conservative than I “Sir, on Tuesday night you will be going toe to toe with a stupid, but wily street fighter. My advice is “KICK HIM IN THE NUTS!” And then do it again for the 200,000 people he murdered!— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) September 26, 2020
