Hollywood has devolved into a cesspool of narcissism and hypocrisy.
Multi-millionaires who are exempt from the consequences of their politics love to preach to the rest of America and proclaim themselves “brave” for attacking the President.
One Hollywood star truly crossed the line with an awful accusation against President Trump.
Bette Midler has amassed a fortune as an actress and singer. Her net worth is reportedly $230 million. While she has benefited from America and free-market capitalism, Midler constantly rails against her country.
She bemoaned Trump’s tax cuts and suggested she would move to Canada. As of May 2018, she has not relocated to Canada.
Also, tax cuts don’t preclude her from giving money to charity or writing a bigger check to the IRS if she so pleases.
Now Midler is attacking Trump for fulfilling a promise by moving the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The Senate has continually approved the move since the 1990s with virtually zero dissension, but Clinton, Bush, and Obama didn’t follow through.
Trump did what he said he would do and what the Senate approved, and leftists have blamed him for violence in the Gaza Strip after the terrorist group Hamas attacked the border.
From The Daily Wire:
On Monday, Bette Midler, who is shot through and through with Trump Derangement Syndrome as well as vulgarity, ripped President Trump for his decision to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, claiming that Trump’s decision was the cause of Palestinians rioting on the Israel-Gaza border and the ensuing reaction from Israel defense Forces:
Fifty-two people die in protest over moving American Embassy to Jerusalem. Thanks, asshole! Your uninformed and demented actions have consequences! Don’t you get it? Those people had families too!
Of course, it never entered the intellectual giantess’ head that the Palestinians have been conducting these riots for weeks, that the riots are not “peaceful protests,” and that Hamas, which engineered the riots, is hell-bent on murdering Jews and eliminating the Jewish state.
As reported by The Washington Post:
“We are excited to storm and get inside,” said 23-year-old Mohammed Mansoura. When asked what he would do inside Israel, he said, “Whatever is possible, to kill, throw stones.” Two other young men carried large knives and said they wanted to kill Jews on the other side of the fence.”
Twitter told her what she could do with her opinion:
@BetteMidler What do you think would happen if troops were not there to keep them from breaking through that border? Benghazi comes to mind, but at a level of violence that would make Benghazi look minor in comparison. You dishonest shameful person. #Israel @realDonaldTrump
@ABeaver25 @BetteMidler @dlonorse Give it a rest. They attacked Israel with children to generate these headlines. It’s on Hamas terrorists not Israel
@BetteMidler How dare Israel protect itself from violent rioters trying to illegally break through its border wall so they can murder innocent Israeli civilians. The Embassy move is what the Jewish people have wanted for a long time. Trump promised & he delivered.
Midler is entirely out of touch, as Trump simply did what the people wanted. But nobody should be surprised that a delusional leftist actress would side with a terrorist group against the American president.
It’s simply par for the course in Hollywood going back decades.
