Bette Midler Says Texas Shouldn’t Get Any Federal Aid

Bette Midler, a singer and actress, who thinks of herself as a political activist also, said Texas shouldn’t get a federal help because they were skeptical of Washington, D.C.

It seems people would learn that mocking the victims of the hurricane is unacceptable, but apparently, she didn’t.

Journalist Richard Fausset wrote an article in The New York Times, saying:

“For Republicans, who dominate Texas government, anti-Washington sentiment is more than just a red-meat rhetorical flourish — it is a guiding principle. […]

Now, though, it is Texas Republicans who will be crucial in securing, and helping to coordinate, what is likely to be one of the most ambitious and costly federal disaster-relief packages in American history, one that will almost certainly run to tens of billions of dollars.

There are few doubts that a Republican-dominated Congress will end up delivering aid to a battered state and key base of Republican power. But along with an outpouring of support, the process is raising eyebrows and drawing charges of hypocrisy.”

Midler’s followers on Twitter quickly attacked her insensitive comments about Texas, where there were 60 people died after the Hurricane Harvey hit.

And as one user pointed out the most harmed victims were from Harris County, a liberal area.

    Not a problem. Just remember that when the San Andrea fault breaks CA off into the sea, you guys don’t get any either.

    I have arrived to the decision that I can’t tolerate anymore air headed, arrogant, selfish, self promoting, dingy and UNEDUCATED “celebrities”. They are all obviously idiots, greedy, selfish and despicable. I can’t stand any of these Hollywood class-less taste-less people (and I HATE calling them people) anymore, even the ones I use to love to watch and listen to sing. One can only hope that Karma pays each and every single one of them a visit…

    And just who really who gives a [email protected] about what Bette thinks or says? I don’t enjoy or respect these celebrity has-beens opening their mouths. That includes Cher Bono as well. Stick to showbiz and keep your schtick out of telling us what we must all believe.

    Boycott her movies and concerts and if she still does it stand up comedies. These people are the worse. So sad they can’t put their political views on the back burner for just a while.

    This is not a political happening, it is a disaster happening to fellow Americans and the rest of the country should help them including the government. President Trump is helping them with Federal Aid regardless of how they feel towards him and that is right. There are innocent people in a grave situation and I would surely appreciate help regardless of how I felt about President Trump, and I do like him.

    I also could care less what these obviously unsensitive,uncaring so called celebs think. It’s the real America helping each,regardless of race,gender,age,political ideology, etc. We are all humans, some with no compassion, many who really care about others.

    Just to say first that only people like you feel this way and most of them are Uneducated Celebrities like yourself. I takes a completely Idiot to make comments like all the Hollywood celebrities make, and especially the View with Woppie Goberg and yes i know i spelled the name different,like Ross boore. They all get up on their soap boxes and speak their minds and most of them only take a min. or 2 but the Stupid Stuff that comes out is so far out of the game that it’s just sad that these people are using our air to breath. They are just like Obama, Clinton. They think that the more Lies that they can tell, that it will make them sound like they know what their talking about. LOL Well it just don’t work that way. Heck, we are still waiting for all of them to relocate to another country since President Trump was elected but their still here . Well i have said enough for now. Thank you Randy

    Why do celebs always have to open their mouths is it bcos they felt forgotten and need to make nasty remarks. The folks who suffered the loss of family and friends homes and businesses bcos of the Hurricane didn’t ask whether they were Democrats or Republicans b4 assisting them their natural survival instinct kicks in everyone jumps in to help where it is needed at a times like this it doesn’t matter who voted for whom lives were on the line so stop with the nasty remarks

    You are so hard hearted! Your type of person is why there is so much hate and rioting in this country. Texas citizens are showing the rest of the nation how to behave and show respect for each other no matter what color, political view, religion, sexual preference, or how anyone voted. We are all human beings in need of help and help is what Texans do!! It is neighbor helping neighbor.
    First responders were neighbors! And in the end, we don’t care what you think!! I hope you never need any help due to a disaster. If you do, Texans will not be there to help!

    Remember Kathy Griffin? You can end up just like her. Learn something from her, and shut your nasty mouth.

    I’m almost 70 young and have never seen so much stupid, condescending arrogance. Why are these non residents of Texas worried about what we do. Wonder if jealously, nah,they have no balls.

    Because of her political stance no one should get any help! Disgusting. We are all fellow Americans! The people of Texas no matter race, color,creed, and political views need our help. Disgusting thing to say!!!!!! Will NEVER see you or support you after that disgusting comment!
