An apology ends most feuds. Not so when it comes to President Trump. He went off on Bette Midler after she apologized for sharing a fake quote that was attributed to him online.
In case you missed it, Bette tweeted a quote that appeared to be from a “People” magazine interview in 1998 where Donald allegedly said, “If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They love anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific.” She captioned it, “He certainly knew his crowd.” When she found out it was fake, she deleted the post and issued an apology, adding, “It sounds so much like him that I believed t was true!”
The leader of the free world – who’s currently on a state visit to the UK – responded with, “Washed up psycho @BetteMidler was forced to apologize for a statement she attributed to me that turned out to be totally fabricated by her in order to make ‘your great president’ look really bad. She got caught, just like the Fake News Media gets caught. A sick scammer!”’
