Iconic musician and actress Bette Midler raised eyebrows on social media Friday, openly calling for physical violence against Senator Rand Paul following his impassioned Senate speech to restrain government spending and slash the federal deficit.
Midler posted her incendiary tweet while Paul delivered his hours-long address to Congress, hoping to derail the bipartisan budget deal as it made its way towards the President’s desk.
“Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?” tweeted the music star, referring to Paul’s physical altercation with his neighbor earlier this year that broke six ribs and damaged his lungs.

The blowback on social media was immediate, with users pointing out Midler’s vicious attack on the GOP senator; saying “So much for love trumps hate…”
“I’ve loved Bette since I was a little kid- but this statement made me lose all respect for her,” wrote another user.
A NEW LOW: Liberal Ad Shows 'Racist' GOP Voters MOWING DOWN Minority Kids
A left-leaning Hispanic voting organization stood by their shocking new advertisement on Tuesday; doubling-down on a vicious campaign video that showed a random GOP voter intentionally mowing down minority children in his Confederate-flag adorned pick-up truck.
The stunning video, titled “American Nightmare,” was released by the Latino Victory Fund and shows groups of minority children fleeing a marauding supporter of GOP Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie; chasing his would-be victims in a “confederate” truck with a “Don’t tread on me” license plate.
Virginia Democrat candidate Ralph Northam defended the video on Tuesday, saying Gillespie’s own rhetoric forced the liberal organization to create the ad.
“Independent groups are denouncing Ed Gillespie because he has run the most divisive, fear-mongering campaign in modern history,” Northam campaign spokeswoman Ofirah Yheskel told Fox News. “It is not shocking that communities of color are scared of what his Trump-like policy positions mean for them.”

DONNA VS DEBBIE: Brazile TRASHES Debbie Schultz Over OUTRAGEOUS DNC 'Perks'
Donna Brazile’s upcoming memoir continues to rock liberal circles inside the DC beltway, with new excerpts showing the former interim DNC chief trashing Debbie Wasserman Schultz over her lavish “perks” while the Democratic party was flat-out broke.
Brazile unloaded on her predecessor in her new book, “Hacks,” saying Schultz enjoyed outrageous perks while serving as head of the Democratic National Committee, most of which were designed to keep Schultz “fat and happy” as the party suffered tremendous financial losses.
“Debbie had a chief of staff and a body woman. She also had media consultants and a fund-raising consultant. I was free to hire my own consultants, two or three if I liked, and bring in a new communications team. All of that would go on the DNC payroll,” she writes.
Brazile eventually notified party officials that she would sell-off the business SUV and refused to hire extra consultants, adding “God knows I didn’t need a body woman.”
“This was the way to keep the chair fat and happy: Give her a huge staff and lots of perks and don’t ask her to do anything,” she writes.
