t’s no secret that Bette Midler has a big mouth, and in the best way. The 71-year-old Oscar- nominated actress and Grammy-winning singer has made a career shouting from rooftops—she quite literally played Tzeitel in Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway in the 1960s, and is currently starring in the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, which gained her a Best Actress nomination at Sunday night’s Tony Awards.
But beyond the stage and screen, Midler has found another platform to exercise her voice: Twitter. Since joining in 2010, she’s gained a following of over 1 million, and has taken jabs at everyone from Kim Kardashian to Justin Bieber, which often make headlines for their chutzpah.
Her most frequent target these days, though, is Donald Trump, and she beats around no bushes when it comes to politics, taking on every subject in the news with cutting commentary, even with respect to “covfefe.” Trump and Midler’s Twitter war began way before he ran for president, however. Back in 2012, she accused him of “ruining New York,” and made fun of his hair. Unsurprisingly, Trump then took the low road, calling her ugly, disgusting, grotesque, and irrelevant. The fact that we didn’t see this as a warning sign five years later is our own fault.
When she’s not throwing shade a celebrities and politicians, Midler is being her usual hilarious self, posting Internet-friendly Hocos Pocus memes and making references to her favorite Beyoncé songs. Below, a look at her best work.
