Bette Midler declares Tucker Carlson “should be arrested and tried for sedition and fomenting insurrection.”

Wednesday, “Wind Beneath my Wings” Singer Bette Midler tweeted “#tuckercarlson should be arrested and tried for sedition and fomenting insurrection. #Murdoch should have his citizenship revoked; the damage he continues to do to our democracy will soon become irreparable. #NewtGingrich should be clapped in irons for getting him past the #FCC.”

Stephanie Ruhle tweeted last week:

The baby formula shortage reveals an amazing secret oligopoly:
– 3 American companies control over 90% of the mkt
– hugely restrictive regulations (thanks to big $ lobbying) prohibit foreign formulas

Name another industry/sector/product like this

Bette Midler replied “TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand.”

This led to a barrage of backlash.

This is profoundly insensitive.

First, there are a million reasons why some women can’t nurse at all, or can’t nurse full time & supplement with formula.

Second, women don’t even need a “reason”. She can decide not to just because she doesn’t want to. Period.


If she hasn’t up til now, she can’t just start at any time. It’s not like turning on a spigot.

The ‘breastfeeding wars’ are just another example of the class divide. It’s elite WFH class judging those who can’t or don’t breastfeed full time.
