For some Hollywood liberals, violence is the answer.
As Washington was hammering out a deal last week to keep the government open another couple months, washed-up actress Bette Midler thought that another beat-down of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) would have sped things up.
Paul was doing yard work last November and wearing headphones when his neighbor went ballistic for the way the Kentuckian stacked twigs on his own property.
Rene Boucher was charged with felony assault on a member of Congress a few weeks ago. Though Paul’s attacker signed a federal plea agreement, no date has yet been set yet to accept his guilty plea, NBC News reported.
Regarding the budget deal last week, Midler tweeted:
Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?

Many Twitter users didn’t appreciate ‘The Rose’s’ calls to assault Senator Paul.
Pleading guilty to felony assault that left a member of congress in excruciating pain for weeks. Delete your account. https://t.co/vpmSsVR0rA

Wow, you’re sick, Bette. You know he was shot at and beat? Wishing harm against people you don’t agree with politically is how we end up with holocausts. You should look inside yourself and ask why you have a tyrant inside of you. https://t.co/fW4pAvuOD3

And here I thought Bette Midler passed away a few years ago. Apparently only her career is dead.
Are you f’ing serious? You are a sick person. https://t.co/ssoMLaj1BM

Midler wasn’t the only one who called for round two.

Back in 2012 Donald Trump tweeted:
.@BetteMidler talks about my hair but I’m not allowed to talk about her ugly face or body — so I won’t. Is this a double standard?

Ugly on the inside, too. Nice going, Bette.
