Yes, it’s on again!
This week, it was President Trump versus Bette Midler on Twitter.
And this is what Midler termed it – “Battle of Bulge”.
Being an intense Trump critic, she is known for poking the President time and about. And this poking has been going on since at least 2012!
What led to the poking tournament this time was a tweet from Bette Midler. By the way, the tweet was of a hoax quote of President Donald Trump (the tweet has now been removed). In the hoax quote, Trump is quoted as saying “Republicans are dumb”. Well, the President responded too. And called her a ‘washed up psycho’.
This is how the story unfolded
Who is Bette Midler apart from a Trump-critic?
To answer, she is a woman of many talents. Beyond the critic, she is a singer, songwriter, comedian, actress and even a producer.
So, Bette Midler went on to tweet that ‘quotes must always be checked’. And “the task of separating the truth from the lies is impossible”.
Even though the quote of Trump was a fake, it spread like wildfire. Later on, the President nudged Midler reminding her of the fact.
Undoubtedly, she did apologise for making the tweet. But added –
Subsequently, Bette Milder owned Trump’s comment ‘washed up psycho’ after the ‘Battle of Bulge’.
