Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for the one, the only, the Donald Trump slayer herself:
Never one to hold her tongue, Bette has become somewhat of a Twitter mainstay when it comes to laying into our *checks notes* President for his often infuriating, sometimes horrifying, always dumb tweets.
And this week was no different!
When Donnie took to the platform to brag again, calling himself “Your all time favorite President,” Bette just couldn’t help but fact check him:
You are no one’s all time favorite president. You are an idiot and a grandiose narcissist. https://t.co/D5cmlwwHoT

Someone’s got to!
Seriously our President is an eighth grader. Who says ish like this about themselves–in the third person no less–besides middle school dorks who think they’re hot shi* because their pre-mustache (you know, where it just looks like they have some dirt on their upper lip?) finally came in?
Midler was obviously insulting Trump, but it’s worth noting that the idiot part is a true fact!
Because as usual, Trump’s tweet is the biggest heap of bullshi* ever typed into the internet.
Your all time favorite President got tired of waiting for China to help out and start buying from our FARMERS, the greatest anywhere in the World!

Cuz that’s not how tariffs work! Oops! Even Trump’s allies have admitted as such, like in this exchange between Trump toadies Larry Kudlow and FoxNews’s Chris Wallace:
“It’s not China that pays tariffs,” Wallace said. “It’s the American importers, the American companies that pay what, in effect, is a tax increase and oftentimes passes it on to U.S. consumers.”
“Fair enough,” Kudlow replied.
But China, of course, doesn’t go entirely unaffected by our tariffs which is why they retaliated with even more tariffs of their own, and in so doing tanked the stock market!
And as for how this has affected the farmers shouted-out in Trump’s tweet?
It’s been such a disaster that a soybean farmer went on CNN to talk about how there’s been a rash of farmer suicides!
Our president is a very stupid man. That’s it. That’s the story. Just like Miss M told it!
So it should come as no surprise that there was plenty of love for Bette’s takedown!
Let me translate: no one's favorite anything just screwed the American people because he doesn't understand how tariffs and trade wars work.

Right on Bette! Anyone who has to tell others he is a favorite… or all the other narcissistic antics he has presented in his term, well… just ISNT

Sweetie, you know you can't use such big words with him… He can't even read. His own NS reports have to be in pictures 😅🤣🤣🤣

So that’s that on that. Our president is a disaster. But thankfully one of Midler’s fans had the perfect solution.
Save us Tina!
