Bette Midler Just Dragged Trump For His Threats Of 'Violence' If Dems Win In November

President Donald Trump claimed at a special White House dinner for only his Evangelical Christian supporters that if Democrats win in the November midterms, they will become violent.

When asked to clarify two days later, Trump stood by his claim.


During Trump's closed door, invitation only dinner with evangelical Christian leaders, the President stated he nixed the law forbidding churches and charities from officially endorsing political candidates.

In reality, the law still remains, despite efforts made in Congress last year to eradicate it.

The statement was made during an appeal for the religious leaders to place pressure from the pulpit on their parishioners to go vote for Trump endorsed candidates in November. Because nothing was more important to Jesus than Republican Ted Cruz defeating Democrat Beto O'Rourke for a Senate seat in Texas in 2018.

On the topic of the November midterm elections, Trump said if Democrats win:

"...they will overturn everything that we've done and they'll do it quickly and violently, and violently. [sic] There's violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people."

So much for Trump's prior claim that White Supremacists and anti-fascist protesters had "good people on both sides."

But Bette Midler is having none of it.

When Broadway, film and recording star Bette Midler got wind of Trump's claim that Democrats are "violent people," she immediately responded on Twitter.


The Divine Miss M just closed her Tony-winning performance as Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway.

The internet is loving Bette's rebuttal.



Others offered Democrats alternates to their tote bags.











While others just showed their appreciation for Midler's wit.





Bette went on to share a photo of her newly acquired weapons of choice.
