If Bette Midler thought her tasteless attack on Melania Trump would get her applause, she was sorely mistaken.
**Warning for adult content.
The entertainer was dragged over her insulting tweet smearing the first lady with a photo from her modeling days which included an equally low-class hashtag instead of #FLOTITS.
No telling what prompted the fresh attack on the first lady by the Trump-hating singer. Perhaps it was the surprising news that she publicly called for Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel to be fired this week.
But Midler proved again how hypocritical liberals are, touting their feminist rhetoric while trashing strong conservative women who don’t meet up with their approval. Women on a CNN panel this week were aghast at the first lady’s nerve to express an opinion considering the president’s wife is “just a former model.”

Midler was raked over the coals for her shameful tweet but the 72-year-old has not issued anything close to an apology.

What a crass and inelegant remark. Perhaps upbringing is harder to overcome than previously thought. Money hasnt bought you class, Betty

Doesn’t this kind of joke violate progressive and feminist sensibilities? Plus, it isn’t funny. It’s the kind of pun a 13 y/o cis male might come up with. https://t.co/S0eM8b97Bw

What kind of women goes through Google images of a hot woman. Posts said picture to try and shame them. And fails miserably? I mean I might like the flotus even more now! #BitterMidler
