It’s free and available on demand,” Midler, 76, tweeted Thursday in reply to a post from MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle discussing the formula drought. “The baby formula shortage reveals an amazing secret oligopoly: – 3 American companies control over 90% of the mkt – hugely restrictive regulations (thanks to big $ lobbying) prohibit foreign formulas,” she tweeted. Stage and screen star Midler was met with pushback over the tweet from several followers, including author Ilyse Hogue who replied, “Bette, respectfully, this is a very bad take. I had twins. I didn’t produce enough milk for both. Without formula, I would have had to have chosen which one got to eat. To say nothing...
    "For the love of God, delete this tweet. Many women cannot breastfeed their babies for a number of health-related reasons. Public shaming is the last thing they need," read another reply. "There are women who cannot produce enough milk to feed their babies. There are same sex couples who need formula because they do not produce milk. There are adoptive parents who cannot produce milk on demand. I'm happy to educate you. You're welcome," said another critic. Midler responded to the rancor later, but it wasn't much better than the original tweet. "People are piling on because of former tweet. No shame if you can’t breastfeed, but if you can & are somehow convinced that your own milk isn’t as good as a 'scientifically researched product', that’s something else again. The monopoly news is news to me, tho, no lie," she tweeted. In February, the FDA recalled formula products from a Michigan facility run by Abbott Nutrition, the producer of the vast majority of baby formula. Abbott said it would take months before supplies return to...
    Amid a baby formula shortage, mothers across the country are worried about being able to feed their infants. Actress Bette Midler had some advice, but many thought it was unhelpful, to say the least. "TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand," the award-winning actress tweeted Thursday in response to a post about the shortage.

"Not if you've had a prophylactic double mastectomy," former Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted.

    Angela Weiss/Getty Images Bette Midler is facing backlash for telling parents to feed their babies breast milk amid the current baby formula shortage in the United States. “TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand,” Midler wrote on Twitter, responding to a tweet on the shortage by MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle. TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand. https://t.co/15xetgg1ps — bettemidler (@BetteMidler) May 13, 2022 Twitter users were quick to remind Midler that breastfeeding is not an option for everyone. Many women cannot breastfeed for various health and lifestyle reasons, including a lack of the social and economic support needed to take time off to pump milk in the baby’s early months. Many men in same-sex relationships also do not have the option to breastfeed their children, while some parents have adopted or fostered their children. Others noted that breastfeeding is not actually free, as parents need to invest in products such as breast pumps and pads, bottles, and nursing clothes. Breast milk is also not “available on-demand,” despite Midler’s claim, as a mother’s milk supply dries out roughly a...
    Left-wing Hollywood actor Bette Midler, star of Disney’s upcoming Hocus Pocus 2, callously replied to a report explaining America’s baby formula shorted by saying “Try Breastfeeding.” Midler was hammered and called out by hundreds of mothers, many of whom shared their breastfeeding horror stories, in response to her “cruel and insensitive” tweet. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle offered details about how “The baby formula shortage reveals an amazing secret oligopoly.” Midler’s response to those desperately trying to feed their babies at a time of unparalleled shortages was called callous and out of touch. “TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s Free and Available on Demand,” Midler said. TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand. https://t.co/15xetgg1ps — bettemidler (@BetteMidler) May 13, 2022 The responses, many of them from mothers who’d struggled with breastfeeding their babies, were searing. WOW Bette, what a cruel and insensitive comment. MY body didnt allow me to do so. Mine dried up before I gave birth. So much for women supporting other womens choices!

    West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice told singer Bette Midler to kiss his dog's "hiney" Thursday in response to a tweet from the singer insulting his constituents last month. The Republican's female bulldog, named Babydog, was present at the address and lifted by Justice for the audience to see at the end of the governor's State of the State address, which focused on the state's successes during the COVID-19 pandemic, including an increase in tourism, according to the West Virginia Gazette.

    (CNN)Bette Midler has apologized West Virginians after a tweet she posted regarding Senator Joe Manchin.On Monday the star expressed her frustration with Manchin, who represents West Virginian, when he announced he would not support President Joe Biden's Build Back Better Act.Midler originally tweeted "What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible." What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible. He sold us out.

"I'm just seeing red."
    Bless your heart, Bette Midler. Yesterday, you tweeted, 'What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible. He sold us out. He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out.' When I read that, I just shook my head and muttered, 'Bless your heart, Bette Midler.'  I felt sorry for you, because you obviously never kayaked the Greenbrier River. You never watched the sun rise over Dolly Sods. You never heard Bill Withers belt out, 'Lean On Me' at church on Sunday morning.  You never experienced the hospitality of a West Virginian who would literally give you the shirt off their back and the food on their plate if you came through town needing help. I'm a lifelong West Virginian, and we've heard the jokes our whole lives. Jokes about dental care, substance abuse, and statehood.  One time this country boy checked into a hotel in the big city. I presented my driver's license...
    Bette Midler took to Twitter this week to weigh in on the controversy surrounding the Mr. Potato Head toy following Hasbro's decision to rebrand the line. Earlier this week, the classic toy brand, which includes the Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head, announced the line will soon be rebranded as the "Potato Head" in order to "better reflect the full line." The brand stresses, however, that neither of the individual Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head toys will be renamed. In a tweet on Monday, the outspoken actress doesn't seem concerned with the gender-neutral switch but said she does find it troubling that the variety of plastic body parts for each toy can detach and be stored in its backside. "#Hasbro announced they are removing 'Mr.' from Mr. Potato Head's label, but that Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head will still exist. I can't believe people are worried about THAT, when what they SHOULD be worried about is how you store a bunch of dismembered body parts in the potato's a--!" Midler joked on the social media platform. BETTE MIDLER MOCKS RUSH LIMBAUGH WITH KKK COMPARISON LESS THAN...
    Actor Tim Matheson took a not-so-subtle swipe at former First Lady Melania Trump while praising her successor Dr. Jill Biden in a now-deleted tweet.  Following the backlash that took place after members of the National Guard were sent out of the Capitol building and into a cold parking lot, the first lady appeared for a photo op with a group of them while carrying baskets of candy.  The "National Lampoon's Animal House" star reacted to the gesture by complimenting Biden, which included an indirect jab at her predecessor.  "So wonderful to have a First Lady with class and heart. And, can speak English!" Matheson exclaimed.

    Actress and singer Bette Midler told White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to “go f---” herself over a tweet concerning election results in Michigan. “With all due respect, Kayleigh, go f--- yourself. IMHO, Harvard has a lot to answer for,” Midler tweeted at the Harvard Law graduate. Midler’s tweet came in response to McEnany writing, "After presenting 234 pages of sworn affidavits raising allegations of fraud in Wayne County, Michigan voting, the Wayne County Board of Canvassers has DECLINED to certify their portion of the Michigan vote."

    ACTRESS Bette Midler gets an earful on social media for again mocking First Lady Melanie Trump’s accent in a crude tweet after calling her an “illegal alien.” The tweet shows a photo of Trump on the phone with a Christmas tree behind her with the caption reading, “DO I STILL HAV TO DU DIS FU***** CHRISTMAS DING?” 5The tweet Bette Midler tweeted of Melanie TrumpCredit: Twitter The Hawaiian born actress posted the photo with no caption on the tweet and got some angry responses from Twitter users.

Midler caused a firestorm on social media Tuesday night as the first lady made remarks from the White House Rose Garden on the second night of the Republican National Convention. "Oh, God. She still can’t speak English," Midler tweeted, prompting critics to accuse her of being "xenophobic."

America is made up [of] people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always," Midler said.

    Bette Midler took yet another jab at President Trump over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, unequivocally calling him a “murderer” in a recent tweet. The “Hocus Pocus” star spends a lot of her time on social media criticizing Trump and his administration on a myriad of issues. On Saturday, the 74-year-old actress shared an article accusing the president of failing to rise to meet the challenge that the COVID-19 pandemic created. In her commentary on the article, Midler laid the blame for the more than 140,000 deaths in the United States at Trump’s feet. “One of the saddest documents you will ever read,” she wrote, referencing a New York Times article titled “Inside Trump’s Failure: The Rush to Abandon Leadership Role on the Virus.” BETTE MIDLER SLAMS 'DEMENTED' PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO WEAR MASKS She added: “#DonaldJTrump is a murderer. Stupid, callous uncaring; all in all the biggest catastrophe to ever befall our poor nation. I can’t stop crying.” Midler’s rebuke of the president’s response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic comes as cases continue to soar in the United...
