This morning, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to call Bette Midler a “washed up psycho” after the actress tweeted a quote falsely attributed to him.
Midler had earlier apologized on Twitter for sharing the fake quote, which called Republicans “the dumbest group of voters in the country.”
‘I apologize; this quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ‘15-16. Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like him that I believed it was true! Fact Check: Did Trump say in ’98 Republicans are dumb?’ she Tweeted.
But shortly after her apology, she went on the offensive again and tweeted about the poor fit of the tuxedo he wore while meeting the Queen of England on Monday, praised London’s mayor Sadiq Khan, with whom Trump had a public Twitter feud earlier in the week, and accused Trump of lying about the crowds he met on his visit to the U.K. this week.

PROPORTION FAIL!! His white waistcoat is at least two inches too long; tailcoat is supposed to be almost the same length as the waistcoat beneath, sleeves should be shorter and show a bit of the cuff below, waist itself is nipped in…what a figure he cuts! Fire the tailor!!Scott Dworkin

Trump said he was greeted by thousands in the UK, but they were actually thousands of protesters. How does he always hear the opposite of the truth? Donald, if you’re reading this you SHOULD NOT slam your dick in a door!

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!

It’s not the first time Trump has insulted the actress. He has in the past called her “extremely unattractive” and said that she “sucked.” Midler has been a vocal critic of Trump throughout his term, and has often taken to Twitter to share her opinions.
