Bette Midler is known to speak quite freely when it comes to talking politics on Twitter.
She has carved out a place for herself on the president’s go-to social media platform as a fierce political heckler, and her latest tweet targeting Melania Trump might be her harshest dig yet.
The actress and singer posted a photo on Wednesday of the now first lady from an infamous British GQ shoot.
In this particular image from 2000, Melania Trump is posing over the pilot seats in the cockpit of her husband’s private jet, wearing a futuristic outfit consisting of a barely there transparent chain-link dress and metal headpiece.

Honestly, the caption is quite funny, and Melania wasn’t forced to take the photo.
However, conservative Twitter was FURIOUS.
Take a look:
Apparently fighting for women’s rights doesn’t apply to @FLOTUS because she’s not a hateful race baiting women like you & women on the left. If you want to see the true identity of female leftist or Hollywood just hop on their timeline & read all their hateful rhetoric towards

Wow! Just Wow. I wish I had the right words to post so that you would realize just how wrong and what a terrible ugly thing to say….but sadly no matter how much you tout that you are pro women you words say differently. Glad the world can see that now. #staystrongFLOTUS

I remember seeing the movie The Rose as a young teenage girl. I loved you for your talent as well as a champion of women ever since. Until today… I am truly saddened by your disgraceful post. So disappointed. This was pure nastiness. 😢

Hollywood is so jealous that our beautiful FLOTUS gets more attention then they do and she doesn’t have to act! She doesn’t have to raise her voice. Americans put up with Obama’s husband for 8 yrs and counting, it’s refreshing to have a woman in that job again

Wow! I'm just so disappointed, never would have imagined it would be you to be this ugly. Always thought of you as a very talented and gifted woman, you could belt out a song. Unfortunately, I no longer feel that way.
