No matter the issue, Bette Midler’s always got a take. Especially when it comes to Donald Trump and how to beat him:
Just as charming as ever. But even more than that, she’s clearly brilliant.
But even more than being charming and brilliant, she’s got her finger on the pulse of the African-American community and is finding new ways to endear herself to them.
Bette's getting roasted!

Have you spoken to white women?

You need to be talking to your suburban white lady friends… they elected trump not us.

Hi, white liberals need to stop pressuring black people into saving us. Black women are already very invested in the party-even though the party has often abandoned them. It's on white people to work on other white people. You could have addressed this message to Taylor Swift

Go talk to your 53% voting for Trump sistren and LEAVE US ALONE.
We’ve done enough and it’s clearly unappreciated. Always with the hands out asking for more. pic.twitter.com/0rCoULnxib

White women overwhelmingly voted him in office… Now our women (who aren't brain dead) are waking up and saying, hey you know what? Maybe we need to stay on code along with our men the way white women did with theirs and vote for Trump.. address white women with this 😒😒 #yawn pic.twitter.com/FHEH6qgGjA

Wouldn’t it be amazing if YOU and y’all’s #WhiteGirlHive mobilized them trifling WHITE WOMEN that voted for that asshole instead of asking Black women to swoop in save y’all from yourselves? Thanks. pic.twitter.com/TtsuodXFij

Black women (who are the majority of Beyonce fans) already did their jobs. Y'all figure it out this time.

Nah we’re good he has a 3% approval rating among black women. We voted overwhelmingly for HRC. This ain’t on us, it’s on y’all. We aren’t carrying this while trying to keep our kids alive ma’am. Talk to your friends

Why, exactly, is that *our* job? Holla at the 52% of your folks who wouldn't support their own. Gather them first, and some of them are in the hive…

You should probably talk to the 53% of white women who voted for Trump instead of expecting black women to carry this water.
— roxane gay (@rgay) September 20, 2019
Wouldn't it be even better if white women stopped expecting Black women to clean up their messes? After all, 53% of y'all are why we're here.

Respectfully, Ms. M, women who look like Beyoncé did not elect Trump. Women who look like *us* did. We need to get our white ladies in line before we ask women of color to mobilize yet again to save our asses in a system where they are not nor have ever been treated equally.

M’am, go talk to your own ppl first.

53% of white women voted for Trump. 25% of Latinas did so. Only 3% of Black women did.
Any wonder why the hashtag #VoteLikeABlackWoman is trending?
Get your own peeps together Bette Midler pic.twitter.com/o6ktez1a5j

Yeah Bette, Black Women did and have kept doing our job in this area. You really need to be talking to your white Sisters about voting in their best interests.
Perhaps YOU throw a free concert to mobilize.

Nice going, Bette. Again.

She’s a guiding light when it comes to race relations.
