Singer Bette Midler sent out a set of tweets on Monday afternoon accusing President Donald Trump of what she called “ArchieBunker racism”

“The election of BarackObama was the defining event of Donald Trump’s rise,” said Midler.

“There are really no words to describe his hatred of Obama; this was when I began to witness the increasingly reactionary & unhinged ArchieBunker racism that defined Trump and his views on modern America,” Midler tweeted.


“When Obama won the Nobel Peace prize, Trump went ballistic, as if the universe were playing a trick on him to drive him out of his mind; like he was hearing voices, the way he ranted & raved about how beloved Obama was by so many Americans,” said Milder.

“He thought acting Presidential was just that. ‘An Act’…’ MichaelCohen in ‘Disloyal,’” said Midler. “…eye-popping, jaw dropping, staggering. And so, so sad for the rest of us.”
