Bette Midler: Actress says GOP ‘did everything to ensure’ a loss in WWII

- The Washington Times - Thursday, July 25, 2013

Outspoken actress Bette Midler took to Twitter on Wednesday to tell her 450,000 followers that Republicans actually rooted for a loss in World War II.

"GOP treats Mr. Obama the way they treated FDR in WWII. They did everything they could to ensure an Allied loss," she said, gaining 60 retweets.

But a lot of people didn't find her comment amusing.

"You should explain that to all the dead Republicans buried at Arlington National Cemetery," one user replied.

"Lets be real here Midler knows as much about history as she knows about meteorology, not much, nothing," another person said.

Earlier this month the award-winning actress docu-tweeted the weather in New York, urging people to call their elected officials about global warming.
