Performer Bette Midler and some other Democrats on Twitter mocked and celebrated upon news that multiple boats at a Texas boat parade for Trump sank on Lake Travis.
Responding to a tweet “Rough waters on Lake Travis as hundreds of boats in Trump boat parade. Several swaamped”
Bette midler wrote “BOATER SUPPRESSION! F*ck ‘em!!”
One Twitter user replied to Midler “Wow. Bette you’ve sure changed. Remember, love is love is love. Where is your love and compassion for humans? You’ve insulted someone’s English and now this. I can’t”
Another Twitter user replied to Midler “I’m not a Trump supporter, but it’s quite callous of you to say that. THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS AFTERALL, regardless of their choices. You should be ashamed of yourself.”
Others piled on with Bette. One user replied wrote “i think of it as mother nature’s revenge!”

A few hours later, Midler wrote “Mr. President, with all due respect, you know NOTHING. You are a parasite, a racist, a thief, a divider and a psychopath.”
She added “You sow distrust to distract the American people while you fleece your own country. After 3 &1/2 years, we got it. You are what you are. It is what it is.”
