Bette Midler is actually taking a beating in her mentions tonight after saying that she personally vows to be as gentle as she can be right now; the angry mob just isn’t having it, not with midterms so near.
In any case, if you’re reading Twitchy, you’re probably one of those deriving that sadistic thrill that comes with confirming a Supreme Court justice.
So many people are hurting so much right now & those who aren’t hurting seem to be deriving a sadistic thrill from the pain of those who are. I wish we were all being more gentle with each other, but maybe that's for another day. I personally vow to be as gentle as I can be now.

What, like the one where she joked about Sen. Rand Paul being attacked by his neighbor and being left with 5 broken ribs? The one where she slimed Leeann Tweeden, who was sexually harassed by Sen. Al Franken, and suggested she was asking for it? The one where she said to withhold disaster aid from Texas until their attitude toward federal government improved?
Oh bite me. You’ve been a disgusting, vile, crusty ass shrew. You’re full of crap rn. https://t.co/1NXqumjbKC

Does sadistic thrill explain why she recorded "Wind Beneath My Wings"?

I hesitate to retweet this. Isn't she usually the one screaming, "Burn the witch!" Project much? https://t.co/9bRp7ppIO8

Sounds great Bette, does that also include people who have different leaning political views as you, or just the people who are more inclined to agree with your views? https://t.co/gHFupC6hYG

You have been so vile, so evil, so divisive, that you have contributed so much to the hurt you rightly note exists.
But you're in no position to be a voice of reason after the pain you have caused.
You could have used your celebrity for good. You chose differently. https://t.co/hKTcKSXeOm

Oh, sweetie, we've already seen the trash talk from you. You can't erase the past. Best just to be quiet. OK? https://t.co/ULMrTZi647
