Donald Trump called singer Bette Midler a “washed up psycho” in a Twitter feud.

Midler posted a meme with a fake quote attributed to Trump, where he supposedly insulted Republicans in 1998 by telling People, “They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country…. I could lie and they’d still eat it up.”

Trump never actually said that, but the meme has been appearing on social media since 2015.

Midler, after posting it, apologized: “I apologize; this quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ‘15-16. Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like him that I believed it was true!”

She also posted a link to a fact check website that showed that it wasn’t a real quote. Editors at People searched “exhaustively” for it when it surfaced as a meme, but “couldn’t find anything remotely like” it and couldn’t even find an interview with Trump in 1998.

Trump responded to Midler’s tweet in his usual calm and controlled style: he called her a “washed up psycho” and “a sick scammer” who was “forced to apologize.”

But Miss M got the last laugh, pointing out that it’s hard for anyone to keep up in a post-truth world, one which Trump has been working hard to create.

And she didn’t stop there.

Hitler used ‘softening’ techniques before World War II. Putin is using them now while Trump tweets.
