WOW! Bette Midler is pretty fucking stupid!!!
Mentally-challenged Midler tried calling President Donald Trump a liar by fact checking the figures he used in his speech to a Joint Session of Congress about the out-of-control violence that has taken over the city of Chicago, and tweeted out a message saying “Trump says that 4000 people were shot in Chicago in 2016. Chicago Tribune says 2016 ended with 762 homicides.”
The problem for brainless Bette Midler’s feeble thought process is that not everyone actually dies after being shot.
President Donald Trump was speaking the 100% truth when he said there were around 4000 people shot in the city of Chicago in 2016, and it just happens that only 762 of those people actually died.
I know that Bette Midler doesn’t deal very often in reality, so it is understandable that the mental midget thinks that everyone who gets shot actually dies – after all, that’s how it works in Hollyweird, but in real life, some people are shot in the arm or leg, while others are saved by paramedics and doctors.
During his February 28 speech to a Joint Session of Congress, President Trump denounced violence, saying: “In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone.”
Singer and actress Bette Midler tried to counter Trump’s statement by tweeting a link to Chicago Tribune story which showed that nearly 800 people were murdered in Chicago.
In other words, Trump was talking about the overall number of shooting victims — fatal and non-fatal combined — when he said “more than 4,000.” But in her eagerness to make it look like Trump was exaggerating, Midler tweeted that just under 800 people were murdered. She was blissfully unaware that she was comparing apples to oranges, and the sad part is that if she had listened to Trump’s whole statement she would have noticed he addressed the raging homicide problem separately.
Trump’s full statement: “In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone — and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher.”
