Midler Calls Melania: ‘Illegal Alien’ Who ‘Can’t Speak English’ – Gets Hammered

Bette Midler was like a raving lunatic during Tuesday night’s Republican National Convention. It was the sight of Melania Trump, who carried herself with such grace and elegance, that really sent the aging songstress over the edge. Midler claimed the first lady was an “illegal immigrant” and mocked her accent after Melania delivered her epic address. Instantly, poor Bette got hammered for her remarks. You’ll love this.

Left-wing Hollywood actress Bette Midler was mercilessly mocked after she called First Lady Melania Trump an “illegal immigrant” and mocked her accent after Trump delivered an address during the second night of the Republican National Convention.

As Trump began her address, Bette Midler tweeted: “#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!”

Minutes later, she tweeted: “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.”

You don’t mess with Melania Trump. She is beloved by millions of Americans who totally hammered Bette Midler.

Midler’s xenophobic tweets about Trump sparked a backlash from Trump supporters — many who pointed out that Melania Trump actually speaks five languages and English is not her first language.

Conservative media personality Allie Beth Stuckey tweeted: “Called it. The same people who call Trump a racist.”

Radio host Dana Loesch noted that Midler could only speak one language: “Xenophobe who speaks one language mocks immigrant who can speak five.”

Journalist Ryan Saavedra tweeted the five languages that Trump is fluent in, including: her native language of Slovenian, English, French, Serbian, and German.

“How many languages do you speak?” he asked Midler.

Veteran actor James Woods pointed out the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party: “The party of diversity mocks an American for her accent…”

Conservative politico Benny Johnson also noted that hypocrisy: “Amazing that open racism exists in the Democratic Party but NO ONE in their party calls it out.”

Red State Editor Brandon Morse contrasted Trump’s message of “hope and positivity” and Midler’s comment. He tweeted: “An immigrant woman, who doesn’t have English as her first language, just got up on on a stage and was so gracious that she refused to attack classless people like you and instead focused on hope and positivity. I’ll take her accent over your ghoulishness any day.”

Music video director Robby Starbuck mirrored Midler’s own comment in a mocking tweet: “Oh God. Bette’s still a horrible bigot.”

Asian-American entrepreneur Lisa Song Sutton tweeted: “My Mother and many immigrants to this country have an accent due to English being their second, third, fourth language… @BetteMidler = xenophobe.”

Conservative host Jason Rantz called out Hollywood’s silence on Midler’s tweet: “When did @BetteMidler become such a virulent racist and why is woke Hollywood cool with this? Because she’s washed up and stuck on crappy Netflix shows? How’s this an acceptable criticism of Melania? So disgusting. @FLOTUS gave a great speech.”

Conservative African author Obianuju Ekeocha recalled when she once admired Midler, tweeting that today she sees her “ruthless xenophobia.” “I’m disgusted & ashamed.”

British talk show host Piers Morgan also mocked Midler’s tweet: “Oh, God. Bette Midler’s a racist.”

Dan Bongino weighed in: “Hollywood elitist snobs are genuinely intolerable. You’ll never encounter a more useless group of ignoramuses, thoroughly convinced of their own inflated sense of self-worth. Exhibit 3,793,592.”

Former Fox News contributor Eric Bolling, who lost a son to an opioid overdose, said: “Several parents have thanked me for inviting @FLOTUS to my Opioid events, saying they got their child help because of her involvement. Melania Trump has done more for our kids in her little finger than you have, in your whole xenophobic body. Typical Hollywood hypocrite.”

Melania Trump shamed leftists like Michelle Obama and Bette Midler during her speech.

“I don’t want to use this precious time attacking the other side because as we saw last week, that kind of talk only serves to divide the country further,” the first lady said, according to The Hill. “I’m here because we need my husband to be our president and commander in chief for four more years. He is what is best for our country.”

“Donald wants to keep your family safe,” she added. “He wants to help your family succeed. He wants nothing more than for this country to prosper and he doesn’t waste time playing politics.”

There is something that is so shameful about attacking Melania Trump. The 50-year-old Slovenian immigrant has kept a very low political profile while doing extraordinary things as our first lady.

Well, Bette Midler is just showing us all once again, the Democrats and their supporters don’t care how low they have to go, all hoping their hatred will somehow transform into an Election Day win.
