On Wednesday, actress and singer Bette Midler struck out against that wretched woman, Melania Trump. Nasty, outspoken, big mouth Melania.

Geez.

What an odd position Mrs. Trump occupies; former First Lady Michelle was relentlessly hailed by the press as stylish, elegant, and beautiful. Melania gets no such treatment whatsoever, and she’s the first occupier of the White House — so far as I know — who is an actual model.

The First Lady is a knockout, and the fashion magazines are alllll crickets.

Bette Midler chirped up this week, with the following vulgar castigation of Lady Trump (which I’ve censored — the photo and the hashtag):

“The dry cleaning bill for the upholstery on Air Force One must be insane.”

I’ll forego any crass dissection of the comment.

So moving on —

Much of the twitterverse took Bette to task:

 

Bette’s hypocrisy is stunning. Consider these four tweets from last month:

Guess it only counts if you’re a woman and a Democrat.
