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.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
