Anti-Trump performer Bette Midler reacted to news that Trump aide Hope Hicks had tested positive for Covid-19 by suggesting a possible conspiracy.
Midler wrote “Just learned that Hope Hicks tested positive for Covid. Timing’s so interesting. I guess Trump’s quarantining will mean no rallies, and no more debates. Convenient.”
She added “It’s awful to always think the worst, but after four years of relentless lying? Can’t be helped. No trust left.”
Earlier in the day, Midler wrote “Jail to the Chief!” and “Worried about your health? Worried about your health care? You should be. Trump, IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC, is trying to take it away from you! He’s taking it to the Supreme Court, where he hopes his new girl will be part of a majority that will cancel The Affordable Care Act.”
Thursday evening, President Trump tweeted ” Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
