Since, in Midler's mind anyway, only white people support the president, a group of African-Americans seen behind Trump at the recent event couldn't possibly have been there simply because they wanted to be.
"Look, there are African American men in this shot!" Midler announced on Twitter, along with the photo in question. "How much did he pay them to be 'blackground'?" she added.
This blatant racism by Midler, who obviously believes that no black people support President Trump, didn't go unnoticed on Twitter. The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis responded to Midler's tweet by stating, "Well this seems pretty racist."
YouTube sensation Mark Dice also commented on Midler's racism, stating in his own tweet, "That's a very racist thing to say."
"These men aren't allowed to support Trump because they're black?" asked another Twitter user. "I dunno. Telling someone they can't do something based on the color of their skin sounds... racist."
"The very definition of racism," commented another. "Are you saying these men cannot make their own decisions?"
Like countless other liberals, Midler presumably thought she was being "progressive" by falsely accusing the president of paying black people to attend his rallies. But instead, she merely revealed her own inherent racism, which she projected onto Trump.
Many of Midler's roughly 1.7 million Twitter followers noticed this as well, chastising her for insinuating that black people are unable to think for themselves, and that they should all only vote for Democrats.
Even other Hollywood celebrities called Midler out for her ridiculous statements, including Cheers star Kirstie Alley:
"This is one of the most racist, degrading 'jokes' I've seen on Twitter & that's saying a lot," Alley wrote in a tweet responding to Midler.
"We get it Bette, you hate Trump & that's your right but to imply Black men have to be PAID to celebrate their OWN political views is pure and REAL racism," she added. "And 'BLACKGROUND'?? WTF??!!"
Comedian Terrence K. Williams shared a video also denouncing Midler's tweet for degrading black conservatives, and this video was retweeted by actor Kevin Sorbo, who simply wrote, "Bravo!" in response to it.
"Hey Bette Midler you sound racist!" Williams wrote in caption to his video. "@realDonaldTrump did not pay any black people to support him! We can think for ourselves. I never received a checked (sic)! Has anyone received a Check? I support the @POTUS for Free!"
Joy Villa, a conservative black recording artist who famously wore a "Make America Great Again" dress to the Grammys award show, also tweeted about Midler's racism, stating:
"Really, Bette? REALLY? @bettemidler You're this crazy to insinuate black Americans have absolutely no mind or values of their own & would only support their country & @realdonaldtrump for 'money'? SMH you probably think they're all pimps & black women like me are just hoes, too?"
Perhaps not at all shocking was Midler's callous response to her critics, in which she doubled down on her racism by basically implying that she enjoys being a bigot – and a foul-mouthed one at that.
"White Democrat elites are the most racist people I have ever encountered," one Twitter user stated in response to Midler's proud bigotry.
"They think they own black people to be used as political (sic) to further their leftist agenda. Sorry Bette, you don't own black people. It's 2019 & slaver ended.. You are a shameless racist #RacistBette."
