Bette Midler really offended many Americans when she claimed President Donald Trump has to pay African-American men and women to pose as “blackground” in photos at his campaign events. The Hollywood leftist can’t imagine any “person of color” would support Trump. Well, instantly Midler got an epic smackdown she won’t soon forget. You’ll love this.

Left-wing actress and Broadway star Bette Midler suggested President Donald Trump paid black people to pose in a so-called “blackground” photo at one of his campaign events.

Posting a photo from a recent campaign rally, Midler floated the idea that Trump could have paid African American supporters. “Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be blackground?” she said, offering no evidence for her claim.

“Despite garnering the support of just eight percent of black people in the 2016 presidential election, Trump has seen his approval rating reach highs of 40 percent among black voters, suggesting he could perform much better with that demographic in 2020,” Breitbart reports. 

But this is not the first wild suggestion Midler has made of late. Over the weekend, she demanded with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to shut down Donald Trump’s Twitter account ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

“Dear Jack Dorsey, why don’t you help your country & the planet, by kicking Trump off Twitter? Or shutting down until the next election?” Midler pleaded. “You’ve made more than enough money & Trump is strangling the free world [with] his racist bile. Be strong! You can improve the course of history!”

Candace Owens has created the “Blexit” movement which has thousands of followers across the country. They are out to engage “people of color” around the country who are still stuck on the “Democratic plantation.” Slowly, but surely, people who usually vote Democrat based on their race are starting to change their mind.

Star Parker is a conservative Trump-supporting activist who is also an African-American who leads a non-profit in Washington D.C. called “CURE.” Parker addresses “people of color” across the country. Ms. Parker found herself on welfare and pregnant when she got “woke” to the Democratic Party’s sick hold on African-Americans.

She wrote a best-selling book titled: “Uncle Sam’s Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America’s Poor and What We Can Do About It.” It tells her own story of coming to the realization of just how entrenched she and other African-Americans were in buying the lies coming from Democratic leaders.

Parker takes aim at Planned Parenthood, too. “They don’t want me to talk about Planned Parenthood’s genocide on the black race. And they don’t want me to talk about the war against the poor – particularly black babies – through abortion,” says Parker.

Of course, Bette Midler wouldn’t know anything about those African-American leaders who support Trump. She’s still brainwashed by her own affiliation with Hollywood. Being a celebrity means you must adopt the Democratic Party line.

Well, Americans gave ole Bette an epic smackdown over her racist “blackground” remark. 

“So you saying black people ave so little moral fortitude that a flash of money is all it takes to get them to play a stooge. I can’t think or a more racist thing to say that disparages an entire race of people. You’ll say anything won’t you,” tweeted Tina Stull.

“18% of black women voted Republican in Florida, keeping the state red. The black community gets that democrats choose illegal aliens over Americans,” tweeted “The Persistence.”

“They know their narrative is dead so they have to bring out the race card. They are very weak-minded people, who have nothing but to call peoples names. When I was a kid it was stick and stones will break my bones, but words can never hurt me,” tweeted “Bornfree 2.”

The ironic thing is President Trump has more support from “people of color” in America than any other GOP candidate or president in the last few election cycles.

Leftists predicted Trump would cause support by African Americans and Hispanics to “collapse,” and instead, he has enjoyed steady gains since taking office. And why not? The president has the lowest unemployment rates for minorities ever seen since 1969.

Bette Midler is the racist one to even think blacks would take money to support a candidate. Shame on her and shame on those in Hollywood who brand the president “racist” without any evidence.
