In a desperate attempt to stay relevant, actress Bette Midler stepped in it… again. This time she went all-out racist over Trump’s latest rally. It’s no secret how much she abhors Trump but this time she went too far. She made a racist, degrading joke about black Trump supporters and stirred up a hornet’s nest of outrage on Twitter.

On Wednesday, Midler posted a photo of a Trump 2020 rally where a number of African-Americans are visible in the background. “Look, there are African American men in this shot!” Midler tweeted. “How much did he pay them to be ‘blackground’?” Wow… self-aware there much Bette? She makes it sound as if she’s calling all black Trump supporters stupid and corrupt. Many, many people were offended and rightfully so over this. It shows racism is alive and well in Hollywood.

From the Western Journal:

“So you are saying Black folks are stupid and desperate,” black conservative commentator Brandon Tatum, a former police officer, responded. “We cannot have a diversity of thought like white people?”

“We better get our black a** back in line like you racist white Democrats believe we should be? I’ve been to WH 3x & 2 rallies VIP, never got a dime.”

“Among Midler’s harshest critics was fellow actress Kirstie Alley, who’s starred in films like “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” and TV shows like “Cheers.”

“The real racist is Midler, Alley wrote, for suggesting that black people need to be paid in order to express their own political views.

“This is one of the most racist, degrading ‘jokes’ I’ve seen on Twitter & that’s saying a lot,” Alley tweeted Thursday.

“We get it Bette, you hate Trump & that’s your right but to imply Black men have to be PAID to celebrate their OWN political views is pure and REAL racism. And ‘BLACKGROUND’?? WTF??!!” she added.

“It’s fair criticism. Many liberals treat black conservatives as though they’re traitors to the Democratic Party for daring to think for themselves, then go on to call Republicans the racist ones, which is hypocritical, to say the least.

“As Fox News noted, Midler has received criticism from across the Twitter-sphere.

“But she had yet to apologize as of Friday afternoon.”

Midler has not apologized and, in fact, has doubled down being profane and rude to those calling her out for her racist tweet. I have to agree with Kirstie Alley here… it’s one of the most racist, degrading jokes I have ever seen. Midler outdid herself here and deserves to be lambasted for it. It’s just sick.

“That’s some racist crap right there,” one Georgia Twitter user wrote. “I guess an old, white woman like yourself gets to decide what and how black people should believe and vote.” That about sums it up right there.

Middler shared a debunked quote in which Trump supposedly called Republicans the “dumbest group of voters” in a 1998 People Magazine interview — later apologizing for the gaffe. “Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like him that I believed it was true!” she wrote. She also continued to send out anti-Trump comments during former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony Wednesday.

Alley should be commended for having the spine to call out Midler for this disgusting behavior. Where is everyone else? Kevin Sorbo backed her up but there should be a lot more coming forward over this. Shame on those who don’t.

Midler’s remarks, which received over 30,000 comments compared to just 4,500 likes, were quickly denounced as “racist” over the idea that black people can’t think for themselves and support the president without being paid to do so. Well, that’s at least a step in the right direction here.

“You racist POS. So you are saying Black folks are stupid and desperate,” wrote former police officer and activist Brandon Tatum. “We cannot have a diversity of thought like white people? We better get our black a** back in line like you racist white Democrats believe we should be? I’ve been to WH 3x & 2 rallies VIP, never got a dime.” Well said.

As Breitbart correctly pointed out, “Midler, who Trump has described as a “washed up psycho,” remains one of Hollywood’s most vicious opponents of his presidency, having repeatedly fantasized over the death of him and his family. Just yesterday, she accused the president of “raping us all with impunity” following the underwhelming testimony of former FBI special counsel Robert Mueller before the House Judiciary Committee, adding that Trump had become a “cancer on the community.”’ Consider the source when it comes to Bette Midler. Her tweet was stone-cold stupid, ignorant, and racist.
