President Donald Trump has had his fair share of Hollywood critics, but some celebrity voices manage to rise above the crowd — or sink below them, actually — for their fierce affliction with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Bette Midler is one of those celebrities.
The actress and musician has called the president a “murderer,” referred to the first lady as “flotits,” and even apologized, ultimately, for claiming that women are the “N-word” of the world.
To say Bette Midler does not know how to come to terms with Trump’s presidency two years in may be among the top understatements of the year.
Now, on Friday, she managed to outdo herself in the wild and crazy department by appearing to celebrate the potential hanging of Donald Trump and his family.
“Trump Trump Trump Bob Mueller’s marching, Trump Trump Trump And here is why Trump Trump Trump He’s gonna hang you Hang the fam’ly GOOD AND HIGH!” she wrote on Twitter — in what was perhaps the strangest pro-Mueller tweet from a celebrity.
(Note to Bette Midler: Guess you didn’t learn any lessons from Tom Arnold’s mistakes. The Secret Service may be on its way.)
Trump Trump Trump
Bob Mueller’s marching,
Trump Trump Trump
And here is why
Trump Trump Trump
He’s gonna hang you
Hang the fam’ly
GOOD AND HIGH! https://t.co/fHImCanqsi

The bizarre tweet by Midler was in response to a video of Donald Trump Jr. talking about alleged business in Russia.
But what Midler may be confused about is that the video is reportedly from 2011 — years before Donald Trump ever ran for president.
Midler and other leftists who have created their own fantasy worlds involving violence against the president and others they disagree with lack the self awareness to understand how hypocritical and empty their political opinions and statements have become.
They will claim, in one breath, that the president has no respect for people — and then they’ll laugh in the next breath about the upcoming demise of people they dislike.
They pretend they want the best for the country because they want President Trump out of office — but they provide no real alternative to the president or any other map or practical solutions for the future.
If she just wants Trump removed from office — well, what then? Does she want Mike Pence as president? What is her solution for immigration reform, the economy, health care, etc.? Can she provide anything concrete, any answers at all?
So what do people like Midler really want? Does this entertainer truly want to see Trump and his family hanged? Is that the America she thinks we should all inhabit?
And if she just wants Trump removed from office — well, what then? Does she want Mike Pence as president? What is her solution for immigration reform, the economy, health care, etc.? Can she provide anything concrete, any answers at all? It’s so much easier to mock, criticize and say cheap things than create something new and positive. Empty, silly and even dangerous rhetoric like hers is partly why former lawmaker Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) recently wrote a piece recommending that Democratic lawmakers cough up the answers to seven key questions on immigration — that they move past criticism and actually start governing, and that citizens hold them accountable.
But minds fueled by hatred can’t really grapple with such complex thoughts, clearly.
Instead of actually taking part in the national debate about creating a better future for this country, Bette Midler and others like her would rather pretend they’re politically informed and involved — and keep their “involvement” to wishing this country would be torn to pieces in whatever their fantasy of the day appears to be.
