Bette Midler Calls Americans ‘Stupid,’ Attacks Trump: ‘How Could So Many Be Fooled by This Buffoon’

Hollywood star Bette Midler has blasted Americans as “stupid” for supporting President Donald Trump, claiming the 45th POTUS is “buffoon” and a “sociopath.”

Midler unloaded on Twitter to prepare her followers for the anniversary of Jan. 6.

Without evidence, she falsely claimed Trump incited the riots before complaing that “stupid” Americans were “conned by a sociopath.’

Midler said: “Tomorrow is 1/6, one year after one of the most traumatic days in American history & life, the storming of the Capitol, incited by #DonaldTrump, in his desperate attempt to cling to power.

“The shock to me was as great as 9/11.

“That so many regular Americans could be conned by a sociopath, so ignorant of the Constitution, so determined to win that he would destroy the government of his own country was the biggest shock of all.

“How stupid are we as a nation?” Midler asked.

“How could so many be fooled by this buffoon?

“#RupertMurdoch #FoxNewsKnew #TraitorTrump,” she added.

Trump canceled a press conference he had planned for January 6 yesterday.

Behind the scenes: Graham, a frequent phone and golfing buddy of Trump, was one of those who urged him to cancel the press conference.

Graham confirmed this to Axios during a phone interview Tuesday night, saying he discussed the subject with Trump over a weekend golf match in West Palm Beach.

Graham said Trump brought up the subject and the senator told him “there could be peril in doing a news conference. … Best to focus on election reform instead.”

Ingraham, another influential Trump ally, strongly signaled during her show Monday night she thought Trump shouldn’t hold a press conference on Jan. 6.

She asked Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) a leading question: “Some things were horrific that happened and shouldn’t have happened that day. … Is it smart for President Trump to do a rally on that particular day, versus next week or the week before?”
