Better Midler is known to be a Trump hater. She thought she would be clever posting a Trump quote, where he is bashing Republicans.
But instead, she just showed us that she takes things from the internet at face value. Since the Left-leaning Politifacts already judged the quote as a falsehood.
The Fake Trump Quote probably perpetrated by some Trump haters read: “If I were to run. I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific.”
She deleted the first tweet that she had wrote: “He certainly knew his crowd.” as the heading. Midler then posted an apology of sorts with a similar quote.
“I apologize; this quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ‘15-16. Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like him that I believed it was true! Fact Check: Did Trump say in ’98 Republicans are dumb?”

Midler then added that she would be more adamant about checking if the quotes were true or not.
“Yes, one must always check the quotes. That should take up, oh, maybe 23 of the 24 hours in the day? Because there are SO MANY LIES, most of them generated by Trump himself, that the task of separating the truth from the lies is impossible. Which is just how he likes it. #CHAOS“
The “U.K. support of almost every other foreign politician outside of Obama was notably low. In second place among public popularity is Hillary Clinton, who only enjoyed favorable opinions among 29 percent of U.K. residents in the YouGov surveys. Just behind her in third place was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who also only had a 29 percent favorable rating.Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders ranked below Trump in the U.K. in terms of positive opinions, with only 19 percent expressing a favorable rating.
Data collected in 2018 from the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Survey found Trump does have the support of several right-wing populist parties across Great Britain. The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) showed a majority, 53 percent, expressed confidence in the U.S. president. Trump’s approval among the overall U.K. population found his favorability has actually increased from the start of his presidency in 2016, according to Pew.”
So Midler may be right about the UK but who cares? Trump is our president, not theirs. And it seems most American politicians have low approval ratings in the UK. Midler is just one of those bitter Hollywood Anti-Trumpers with nothing better to do than bash Trump.
