Singer and actress Bette Midler is one of the many celebrities to share her hate for Trump on Twitter. Her insults have certainly given Cher, Trump's original tweeting nemesis, a run for her money. Midler has felt no need to apologize, until she attributed a quote to the president that didn't exist. 

Rumor had it that in a 1998 People Magazine interview, Trump said that Republicans were "the dumbest group of voters in the country.” The quote proved that he "knew his audience," Midler tweeted this week. 

Yet, after reading a fact check that debunked the statement, the actress offered the following regrets. 

She was soon back to her old ways, tweeting out several messages mocking Trump's appearance and intellect.

Midler has often defined Trump as an ogre, even when he's reached out to different communities. When he tweeted his support for Pride month the other day, Midler responded with a note he has done nothing for gay rights. Actually, the actress said, he "has harassed LGBTQ Americans since he took office." She added that he was "mental."
