Fact checked
Bette Midler thinks the police should arrest Donald Trump for trying to kill Joe Biden. Yes, really.

Hollywood actress Bette Midler is calling on the police to arrest former President Donald Trump for the attempted murder of Joe Biden.

Yes, really.

According to the anti-Trump star, Trump tried to kill Biden with the coronavirus during a televised debate last year.

In an unhinged tweet on Friday, Midler claimed Trump knew “full well he was positive” with the virus before the debate, but deliberately turned up too late to be tested. Trump then “screeched, sputtered, spit, and foamed at the mouth, hoping to infect Joe.”

Breitbart.com reports: Midler’s accusations appear to stem from a new book by Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows that states the president tested positive for the coronavirus three days before the first presidential debate with Biden in September 2020.

The book said after Trump tested positive, he took another test using a more modern system that showed up negative, leading staff to believe he could still attend the debate.

“The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News,” Trump said in a statement this week. “In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate.”

Bette Midler has used her massive social media following to champion physical violence against certain conservative politicians, including Trump and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). She urged Joe Biden to kick then-President Trump “in the nuts” during the very same presidential debate.
