Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court hit liberals pretty hard. Bette Midler wanted her fellow lefties to know that she feels their pain but also recognizes the need to rise above the temptation to get nasty:
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.

Apparently her word is as good as her acting. Which is to say … it’s pretty worthless:
The teacher who said Stephen Miller ate glue as a child has been reassigned by her school district; I hope as superintendent, because
that lady is a HERO. Glue! Who knew? It explains SO much!

.@ErikPaulson #Minn. has #trump blowing hard for him. EEW! WHAT A SMELL! Erik hates your healthcare, likes corporations to have #tiny taxes, & doesn't give a damn whether your kids get shot in school. #DeanPhilips, DEM. says Health Care is a moral right. MINNESOTA! VOTE DEAN!

So, that’s as “gentle” as she can be, huh?
