It might be the most irrational attack on Trump we’ve ever heard – and we’ve heard a lot.
We always knew the Hollywood elites were a little crazy.
But Bette Midler seems to be a very special kind of crazy.
She has clashed with President Donald Trump in the past, most notably when she misquoted him as saying Republican voters are stupid.
But now, instead of just retreating with an apology (as she should’ve done), she’s redoubling her attack.
And this time, she’s claiming something so outlandish, one wonders if she hasn’t been taking her medications…
The washed-up actress now says Trump is actually jealous of Barack Obama.
But wait, it gets better:
“President Donald Trump’s ‘uncontrollable’ jealousy will lead to ‘thousands of premature deaths’…
…actress Bette Midler warned in an apocalyptic social media rant on Thursday.”
How will Trump’s supposed jealousy lead to “thousands of premature deaths,” you might ask?
Oh, simple: climate change.
See, the Trump administration continues to pull back on Obama’s regulation-heavy global warming rules, which includes the Clean Power Plan.
Critics of the plan say it puts a terrible burden on the coal industry, and it’s just plain unnecessary.
So, Trump rolled it back this week and offered the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule as an option, which makes perfect sense.
But it’s not good enough for Midler, who posted on Twitter:
#trump’s uncontrollable jealousy of Barack Obama will lead to thousands of premature deaths from air pollution, wildfires, floods. What a small-minded, short-sighted little man. https://t.co/0anoLojD0l

“#trump’s uncontrollable jealousy of Barack Obama will lead to thousands of premature deaths from air pollution, wildfires, floods.”
Midler really thinks Trump rolled back Obama’s unneeded plan out of jealousy, which isn’t even remotely accurate.
EPA chief Andrew Wheeler made said it best at a press conference:
“Rather than punishing US production and yielding the marketplace to Chinese coal, which is what the Obama Clean Power plan did…
…we are leveling the playing field and encouraging innovation and technology across the sector.”
On top of which, he says the ACE rule will give coal plants incentives to explore new, cleaner technologies.
Maybe Midler doesn’t know about all this … or maybe she just doesn’t care.
Either way, nobody has any idea how this rollback will cause massive disasters like wildfires and floods.
And ironically, Midler and the rest of her Hollywood ilk gladly support Planned Parenthood and abortion.
…pretty sure THAT results in hundreds of thousands of “premature deaths,” wouldn’t you agree?
