Trump Shreds ‘Washed Up Psycho’ Bette Midler Over Fake Quote: ‘Sick Scammer’

President responds to liberal actress spreading fabricated Trump statement on Twitter

President Donald Trump responded to liberal actress Bette Midler after she posted a fabricated quote from him on Twitter, blasting her as a “washed up psycho” and a “sick scammer.”

On Sunday, Midler posted a fake statement that had been attributed to Trump that framed him for saying that he only ran as a Republican because “they’re the dumbest group of voters in the country.”

The Hollywood star posted the false quote to Twitter without questioning its authenticity, with it quickly going viral, amassing thousands of shares from her supporters who were duped into believing it was real.

Midler later deleted the tweet, but attempted to cover her mistake by blaming Trump and accusing him of being responsible for “SO MANY LIES.”

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,” President Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

“She got caught, just like the Fake News Media gets caught,” he added.

“A sick scammer!”

Trump was referring to a tweet that Midler had posted with a debunked quote attributed to the president mocking the gullibility of Republicans.

“If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican,” the fake quote reads.

“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.”

According to The Blaze, Midler later tweeted that the quoted “sounded” like the president, but admitted it was false.

“I apologize; this quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ’15-16,” the singer tweeted.

“Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like him that I believed it was true!”

“Yes, one must always check the quotes,” she added in a second tweet.

“That should take up, oh, maybe 23 of the 24 hours in the day?

“Because there are SO MANY LIES, most of them generated by Trump himself, that the task of separating the truth from the lies is impossible.

“Which is just how he likes it.”
