Singer and actress Bette Midler has pinned a tweet to the top of her Twitter feed—that she initially sent out on April 6—that explains her view of President Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.
“No matter that Donald Trump says, he didn’t do a ‘good job,’” says Midler’s tweet.
“With months of warning and near-infinite resources, he did a worse job than every other government on the entire planet, a job so awulf that years from now all we’ll remember is, in a crisis, Trump failed the nation,” she said.
In another tweet she sent that day, Midler said: “He’s got a captive audience, an attention-addict’s dream come to life. It’s just that he, like all narcissistic personalities, has no clue how disgracefully—how shamefully, how deplorably—he’ll be enshrined in memory.”
In a yet another tweet that Midler sent out on April 6, she said: “Every aspect of Trump’s crisis management has been annexed by his psychopathology. As Americans die, he boasts about his television ratings. As Americans die, he crows that he’s No. 1 on Facebook, which isn’t close to true.”
“But it’s true that all eyes are on him,” said Midler.
