It is true that Trump only won eight percent of African American voters in the 2016 presidential election (though he did better than 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney). On the flipside, Trump’s approval rating with black voters has reached as high as 40 percent.
But let’s forget about all that and focus for a moment on what Midler is actually saying.
The outspoken liberal and actress seems to believe that the only way black men would attend a Donald Trump campaign event is if they were compensated to do so. We can assume this means she also believes black Americans would never show up because they agree with the president.

Does Midler believe all black people hold the exact same political beliefs? Are they not individuals with differing viewpoints that should never be judged collectively just by the color of their skin?
Because there’s a word for that.
Bette Midler dismissed African American supporters of President Trump as "blackground" and accused them of being paid to attend a Trump rally. https://t.co/fXttJmIMPj

Straight Up Racism
There are not only many black conservatives, but there are enough Americans of all colors who are attracted to Trump’s message, even those who might not be very political.
The notion that all black people have to agree with what Bette Midler believes – and that all black Americans must also agree with each other – is not only extremely patronizing, it is the definition of racism.
Liberals do so much screaming about racism, that it goes completely over their heads when they engage in the same behavior.
So the next time Bette Midler wants to rant about how racist the president is, she might want to take a look in the mirror.
