74-year-old actress Bette Midler called President Trump cruel and malignant following reports that the White House has decided to not re-open Obamacare markets to new customers. In a typical act of liberal Hollywood lunacy, Midler said that Trump’s “overwhelming jealousy” of Barack Obama “will kill us all.”
According to Politico, the Trump administration decided against reopening Obamacare enrollment to uninsured Americans during the coronavirus pandemic, going against calls from Democrats to create a special sign-up window. An anonymous White House official told Politico that the Trump administration is “exploring other options” to provide healthcare coverage to Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.
The open enrollment period to purchase an Obamacare plan for 2020 was from November 1 to December 15, 2019.
Politico also reported that the Affordable Care Act already allows a special enrollment period for people who lost their workplace health plans do to being laid off, like millions of Americans recently have.
Bette Midler either didn’t spend 5 minutes to research that important fact, or she simply didn’t care when she tweeted, “There is no end to the cruelty and malignancy of @realdonaldJtrump and his horrifying administration.”
She added, “His overwhelming jealousy of @BarackObama will kill us all.”
One of Donald Trump’s biggest campaign promises in 2016 was to “repeal and replace” Obamacare. While a full repeal vote failed in 2017 in the Senate by a small margin, President Trump did successfully eliminate the unpopular individual mandate tax.
This is not the first time Midler has publicly displayed her extreme symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome on Twitter. In a tweet from February, the actress claimed that President Trump will “rule you until he dies, you die, or both” in response to a funny meme posted by the president.
