Bette Midler Makes a Fool of Herself in Tweet About National Security
She's clearly confused.
President Donald Trump shook up the national security departments in the past week, which has caused a lot of the trolling public to suddenly become super-advocates of law and order to snark about it online.
Singer and actress Bette Midler is no fan of the president’s and once again didn’t see fit to hide her own dimwittedness by tweeting a thought that is so ridiculous, it deserves highlighting.
“So the fattish man of paralyzing stupidity has fired all the heads of the agencies tasked with keeping US safe: DHS, FEMA, ICE, SECRET SERVICE, and Customs and Border Protection. What if there’s another 9/11? Who do we get? Rudy Giuliani?” Midler wrote.
I mean, I’m old enough to remember 9/11 clearly and I’m not even 40 yet. Bette Midler at 73-years-old should recall that Rudy Giuliani was the much-revered mayor of New York City when the terrorist attacks struck both towers of the World Trade Center in 2001.
In fact, Rudy Giuliani’s time in office saw the clean up of Times Square and New York City’s murder rate plummet. It made him a hyped presidential contender in 2008 and 2012, despite ultimately not doing well in the primaries.
Midler didn’t stop at a critique of Giuliani.
We’ve heard for months from the left about how terrible the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement is during Trump’s tenure, not to mention Homeland Security. But now, Midler is holding up the very agency targeted in the protests as a societal good?
What an unexpected change of heart for the Left and those like Midler.

The fact remains that it is in Pres. Trump’s purview to fire the heads of executive agencies, which includes the Secret Service and his own first Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen. Lampooning Rudy Giuliani as an incompetent replacement or untried individual to lead during a possible national tragedy is simply willful blindness or a flat-out lie on Midler’s part.
