Hollywood star Bette Midler, who seems to bash President Donald Trump on a daily basis, just went after him once again on social media, this time for his comments mocking the Academy Awards.
During a rally in Colorado on Thursday, Trump slammed the fact that the foreign film “Parasite” won Best Picture at the Oscars earlier this month.
“The winner is a movie from South Korea. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade,” Trump said. “And after all that, they give them best movie of the year?”

“Parasite” was the first foreign film to ever win Best Picture at the Oscars, and it also won awards for directing and original screenplay, according to Fox News. Midler took to her own Twitter page to make it clear that she was livid about Trump’s remarks.
“At his rally, #Trump complained about #Parasite winning the Oscar,” Midler tweeted. “I’m more upset that a parasite won the White House.”

Unfortunately for Midler, however, her tweet backfired on her when social media users used it to go after Barack Obama.
During the same rally, Trump also went after Brad Pitt, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.” While accepting his award, Pitt used his speech to attack Republicans who shut down Democrats’ attempts to call more witnesses in the Trump Senate impeachment trial.
“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said. “I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”
Trump had some choice words for Pitt over these comments.
“And then you have Brad Pitt, I was never a big fan of his,” Trump said. “He got up, said a little wise guy thing. He’s a little wise guy.”
Hollywood stars like Midler and Pitt don’t realize that when they go after Trump, they’re just making themselves look like out of touch liberal elitists who have no idea what they’re talking about. Trump did not become president to help wealthy liberals like them. Instead, he became president to help average working Americans who have been cast aside by Democrats.
Trump should know that if Midler and the rest of Hollywood keep bashing him, he’s just doing something right!
