Bette Midler: Trump’s 'Jealousy of Barack Obama' Will Lead to 1000s of Deaths
Liberal actress takes aim at president with more false information
Liberal actress Bette Midler has taken aim at Presdient Donald Trump again claiming that his “uncontrollable” jealousy of former President Barack Obama will lead to thousands of premature deaths.
Middler was reportedly responding to the Trump administration’s efforts to unravel the Obama administration’s regulation-heavy global warming initiatives.
The Obama global warming initiative included the Clean Power Plan, which critics say put a burden on the coal industry.
“#trump’s uncontrollable jealousy of Barack Obama will lead to thousands of premature deaths from air pollution, wildfires, floods,” Bette Midler warned her 1.63 million Twitter followers.
“What a small-minded, short-sighted little man.”
The rollback was finalized by the Trump administration on Thursday, offering the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule as an alternative.
“Rather than punishing US production and yielding the marketplace to Chinese coal, which is what the Obama Clean Power plan did, we are leveling the playing field and encouraging innovation and technology across the sector,” EPA chief Andrew Wheeler said.
“Our ACE rule will incentivize new technologies that ensure short coal plants can be part of a cleaner future,” he added.
But Midler insisted that Trump rolled back the Obama administration’s plan, not because of economics, but because of pure spite and jealousy.
But there is no evidence to back up Midler's claim.

Washed up psycho @BetteMidler was forced to apologize for a statement she attributed to me that turned out to be totally fabricated by her in order to make “your great president” look really bad. She got caught, just like the Fake News Media gets caught. A sick scammer!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2019
What is also unclear from the liberal actress's claims is how the rollback will cause “premature deaths” from, wildfires, floods, and air pollution.
As Midler isn't a stranger to citing debunked and false information, she most like used the false “consensus,” which claims that 97 percent of climate scientists agree that climate change is “man-made” or “dangerous.”
Earlier this month, Midler faced backlash on Twitter for sharing a fake Donald Trump quote which falsely claimed that he mocked Republican supporters before running for president.
The quote was debunked as fake by Snopes four years ago.
The fake Trump quote is as follows:
“If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie, and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific."
Trump responded to liberal actress Bette Midler after she posted a fabricated quote from him on Twitter, blasting her as a "washed up psycho" and a "sick scammer."
