Better Midler tweeted a slew of accusations against Donald Trump and the Republican party on Thursday before the former President's acquittal on Saturday afternoon. Midler insisted that he was responsible for driving the insurrection that took place at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. 

"For the first time in 200 years, the Capitol was breached ON OUR WATCH. Shame on you, #RepublicanSenators. We will never forget your cowardice. Ever," she began venting out her anger against Trump, who she's always been critical of, and her Twitter feed is proof of the same. Warning Americans who voted for him in 2016 and again in 2020, she wrote, "#DonaldTrump is a vicious, violent psychopath. He’s a coward who manipulates people to get them to carry out his most repulsive instincts. Allow him to run again at your peril, #America."

The 'Loose Women' actress has accused the former president of murder in July 2020 "#DonaldJTrump is a murderer. Stupid, callous uncaring; all in all the biggest catastrophe to ever befall our poor nation. I can’t stop crying," she had written at the time. She once again reiterated he was responsible for "killing" people in her tweets that she posted on Thursday: "#DonaldTrump KILLED people at the Insurrection. If he had put a gun to their heads, he could not have done a more efficient job. And two policemen killed themselves from shame. Have you no hearts, #Republicans? Never, ever again say “#BlueLivesMatter.” You’re f***ing liars."

"As sad as January 6th was, it's going to be even sadder if #DonaldTrump gets away with #murder. Am I by myself?" she wrote as a follow-up. Midler had also taken to Twitter to ask where Senator Rand Paul’s neighbor was while Paul gave a speech at the Republican National Convention. “Where’s [Rand Paul’s] neighbor when we need him?” Midler had tweeted on February 9, 2018. For the uninformed, the neighbor in question, Rene Boucher, was handed 30 days in prison for launching an attack during a dispute over yard waste. Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress. Paul had suffered broken ribs and a bruised lung from that attack noted the Sun.

After Trump was acquitted, Midler once again took to Twitter and sent out a tweet that clearly reflected the disappointment and hopelessness she was experiencing at the time. "This lopsided vote is an American tragedy of monumental proportions., one we made all by ourselves. The consequences of this travesty have yet to be known, but I predict they will be uglier than even the last four years have been," she wrote.

Midler's observation and comments didn't sit well with a lot of people who appear to be Trump supporters and they engaged in namecalling the actress in the comments. "Your so ugly, lame & wrong Bette, inside & out," read a comment while a user called her, "Another Hollyweird Nutbag.." Another tweet read, "When an elderly insignificant ex-actress thinks she knows the rule of law." Another user tweeted, "You need help. The excesses of the 70s fried what few brain cells you had".
