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.

For closeted individuals, coming out is a rite of passage in life that LGBTQ+ people never signed up for.

Why is it that anyone who inherently identifies a certain way has to explain themselves to those who are confused and unwavering in their socialized ignorance?

Times have changed and while there have been advances made for LGBTQ+ people to find more acceptance and feel less like an "other," there are still many challenges to overcome.

Even with gay role models prevalent in pop culture, it can still be difficult for gay youth today to come out to a parent who chooses to live in the past and align themselves to antiquated ideals in society that prevents them from loving their child as they are.

But sometimes, the response after opening up to a parent in a vulnerable moment can prove that unconditional love is the best thing in the entire world.

Everyone loves a good mystery or ghost story, particularly one with a massive twist regarding one of the main characters.

But surely, stories like this never happen in real life?

Such as finding yourself stuck on the side of the road, when a guardian angel of sorts comes and helps you, seemingly out of nowhere, then disappears just as mysteriously.

Or getting a call warning you about something which sounds far-fetched, then happens three weeks later?

Surely, these are the types of situations only found in the work of Shirley Jackson or Edgar Allen Poe.

Or are they?

We've all made clumsy mistakes that we know could have been avoided had we used a little bit more good judgment and common sense.

Thankfully, these silly mistakes don't usually harm others or ourselves.

This is why it's hard to see people knowingly perform reckless or dangerous activities which they know might have serious consequences.

While we don't usually wish these people ill, we also have a hard time feeling bad for them, as they knew what they were getting themselves in for.

As some people might say, they "f*cked around and found out" or "play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
