Bette Midler under fire, rushes to praise controversial possible GOP candidate to spite Trump


Bette Midler is apparently doing her part to confirm the deeply damaging effects of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The left’s relentless hatred for President Trump has repeatedly been exposed in their pursuit of taking him down, and Midler’s celebration of a questionable candidate who could run against the president had even her fans confused.

The 73-year-old actress and singer seemed more than happy with the idea that “patriot” Joe Walsh was considering running against Trump, reacting to a CNN interview with the former Illinois Republican who said he was “‘strongly, strongly considering” entering the 2020 race.

“WOW!! Good for him! Looks like he’s the only patriot in the entire Republican Party!!!” Midler tweeted Wednesday.

But the former congressman, who told CNN last week that Trump “is a disaster for the party and the country,” is not exactly at the top of the list for viable GOP candidates to primary the president. Midler’s praise quickly sparked reactions on Twitter.

Walsh’s presidential campaign aspirations could be getting a push from Never Trump-er Bill Kristol. But the former Trump supporter carries a lot of personal baggage that would potentially derail his campaign before he has even announced he is running. His latest anti-Trump screed seems to have won him few fans.

With controversial tweets using the n-word and other racial slurs, Walsh has left quite a trail on social media and has raised eyebrows as a radio host on several occasions.

Walsh also has a long history of financial problems, including failing to pay child support for years.

And with all of that going for him, Midler’s ringing praise of Walsh proved just how low liberals will go in their hatred of Trump.
