DON'T BETTE ON IT: Midler Off the Rails, Says Carlson, Gingrich Should Be Jailed

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.19.22

Bette Midler is off the rails.

The 76-year old singer-actress took to Twitter on Wednesday to vent about Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Speaker of the Houser and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich(?). Midler says they should both be thrown in prison.

“tuckercarlson should be arrested and tried for sedition and fomenting insurrection. #Murdoch should have his citizenship revoked; the damage he continues to do to our democracy will soon become irreparable. #NewtGingrich should be clapped in irons for getting him past the #FCC,” Midler tweeted.

Midler also took a shot at Rupert Murdoch earlier in the week, posting a list of people who own media outlets. Midler said “Sadly, this list leaves off the most vicious, the ugliest, the most hate-filled owner of all, #RupertMurdoch, #TuckerCarlson’s master, who has ruined political discourse all around the world. “Own the press & 1/2 the work of. dictatorship is done.” #willwesurviveMurdoch?”

The Hocus Pocus actress is getting used to stirring it up on Twitter —last week she weighed in on the baby formula crisis: “TRY BREASTFEEDING! It’s free and available on demand,” Midler tweeted.

Carlson called Midler an “elderly, out-of-touch, rich, liberal lady” for her opinion regarding the baby formula shortage during his monologue last week.

“So here you have an elderly, out-of-touch, rich, liberal lady lecturing struggling American moms to shut up and suffer in silence and, by the way, make your baby shut up, too,” Carlson said of Midler. “Now, if you can think of a more perfect distillation of modern politics of the left circa 2022 than that, send us an email and let us know what it is, because we’ve never seen anything that perfect.”

Reactions to Bette’s Twitter tantrums are mixed, with some folks confessing they didn’t realize she was still alive.
