If Elon Musk needs evidence of Twitter’s liberal bias, he need look no further than Bette Midler’s account.
The progressive star’s hate history is no secret, but the Twitter Trust and Safety Board continues to look the other way. Despite this, the most recent stumbled upon the location of The Divine Ms. M on Twitter reveals something else about her and her celebrity friends.
He called them a “let them eat cake” toast.
I like Tweet embed She is an amazing woman!! Unfortunately, her tweet fell short of acknowledging the social, economic and health issues that prevent some mothers from breastfeeding. I hope you do more research on this issue before tweeting about it.

Midler, in an effort to protect the Biden administration earlier this week, tried to explain the shortage of infant formula in the country.
“Try breastfeeding! It’s free and available on request,” she tweeted, ignoring the countless women who struggle to breastfeed for often heartbreaking reasons. A 70-year-old must have met some moms in her life who were involved in motherhood struggles.
The Biden administration claims to have been working on the problem for some time, apparently with little or no results. Tell that to moms who are scrambling to find formula for their babies.
That collective suffering does not bother Midler. why?
This could negatively affect President Joe Biden specifically and Democrats as a whole. So, Midler pushed their concerns aside to get some cheap party points.
Let them eat cake.

Jimmy Kimmel could sarcastically attack Biden’s team for the formula disaster. He’s a late-night stand-up comedian, and his monologues flop politicians, at least in theory. Some of his viewers may have their own problems finding a formula for their loved ones.
It’s a moment of truth to strength for any self-described satirist. Or, at least one is not indebted to a particular party.
Instead, Kimmel framed the story as Republicans trying to score political points, not as mothers desperate to feed their children.
Let them eat cake.
“Republicans have been trying to shift the focus away from taking equal rights from us, by blaming Joe Biden for the nationwide shortage of infant formula. But the president doesn’t have it. He’s not just resisting, he has a plan to solve this problem personally.”
Kimmel revealed a false advertisement for Biden’s “Maw-Maw Biden’s Non-Clotting Baby Chow” after the Republican Party reprimanded for noticing the problem.
“Hey guys, I know times are tough. With gas prices soaring, and now a shortage of baby formula…but we’ve had tough times before, and we’ll get through it again. With Uncurd Maw-Maw Biden Baby Food!”
“This is the same porridge my dear mother used to fry in a storm cellar when I was no bigger than a stump of a walnut. Each can is sliced, boiled twice, and pickled personally by me, Uncle Joe.”
Can anyone decipher what a muzzle means, other than perhaps a jab at Biden’s age? Are hectic moms now a punch streak? Can Kimmel not shed wisdom about allegations that the government shipped pallets of milk to families of undocumented immigrants while American mothers suffered?
Suffice it to say that your fellow late-night hosts similarly ignored this factor.
Colbert defended another close-up of a “cake” earlier this year after more headlines for raising gas prices.
“Today, the average price of gas in America hit an all-time high at over $4 per gallon. Well, it hurts, but on good conscience it is worth a profit or two… I am willing to pay. I am willing to pay $4 per gallon. Hell, I’m going to pay $15 a gallon because I drive a Tesla.”
Marie Antoinette would be proud, assuming you believe in the historical legend.

This notorious “let them eat cake” attitude isn’t new, of course.
The trend has raged unchecked during the pandemic, and was perfectly captured by the all-star group Gal Gadot gathered to sing “Imagine” over the viral video early in the crisis.
The track makes a mockery of both faith and materialism, with the tone deafening the message as closely as possible given the source. The stars combined millionaires several times. Additionally, when God-fearing friends and loved ones are in danger, Americans rely on their faith for comfort.
The left and right enjoyed a rare moment of solidarity in mocking the video.
It only got worse from there.
“Will & Grace” blamed Debra Messing, like many of her celebrity peers, cheering Dr. Anthony Fauci week after week as he recommended keeping the country on lockdown in the middle of the pandemic.
We now know that the lockdowns have done little, if anything, to stop COVID-19 while causing significant damage to businesses and lives across the country.
High rates of drug abuse and suicides, for starters, not to mention the devastating impact of lockdowns on school children.
However, it didn’t take a medical certificate until I realized that many would suffer from extended closure. For Messing and co. Staying closed indefinitely was not a burden. They have already made millions and could outrun the pandemic indefinitely.
Most Americans are not so lucky.
Even some modest government aid couldn’t pay all the bills or rescue the family business that was hanging by a thread.
Protesters during that period isolated their anger through public protests. Agree or disagree… Can you blame them?
Stephen Colbert used his “Late Show” platform to mock protesters eager to start their businesses again. Their biggest crime, in Colbert’s estimation? Support President Donald Trump. Colbert’s team spotted a Confederate flag in the mix, and gave him an easy comedy show.
“Because nothing says ‘never give up’ like the Confederate flag,” Colbert said with a wink. Colbert’s annual salary, according to Business Insider, is $15 million.
Not to be outdone, Kimmel weighed in on the closure protesters, too.
The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host described them as “suicidal” and stupid for wanting to get back to work.
“People are worried, especially people who are not very intelligent,” he began.
“One of the main reasons these protests are gaining momentum is that our president is encouraging them,” the host added. “Even though everyone who works for him is asking people to stay home, despite the White House’s official mandate that it is a “shelter in place,” over the weekend, the man who runs the White House tweeted, “Liberate Michigan,” Liberty Minnesota. , and “Free Virginia.” This is from a man who refuses to even free Melania.
If you’re curious about the definition of “hit” in comics, look no further.
Pop singer Pink doesn’t have a late-night show to herald, so she’s used social media to mock Americans eager to make a living…again. “I feel like I’m living in an IDIOCRACY,” she wrote online.
Comedy legend Albert Brooks Compare the lockdown protesters to the Nazis While targeting President Trump at the same time.
“The scariest thing about the Trump-inspired protests today is the people screaming ‘Fire Fauci! Trump should watch this and feel invincible. He actually got his audience to blame the flag. Even Germans go ‘holy’ [bleep] I thought we got rid of this.
Not to be outdone by far-left comedian Patton Oswalt, he summoned Anne Frank to downplay those eager to resume something close to normality.
“Anne Frank spent two years hiding in the attic and we’ve been home for a little over a month with Netflix, food delivery, video games and there are people risking viral death by breaking into state capital buildings and yelling, ‘Open Fuddruckers!'” “.”
The “View” hosts made a “let’s eat cake” moment by beating businesswoman Shelley Luther to open her salon against their wishes. The Dallas businessman went to prison briefly because he did not “apologise” to the judge in the case.
Expressing sympathy for her cause on Friday’s show, the liberal hosts did a full 180 as they spoke to her on Monday, insisting she should apologize and even blaming her for causing a spike in coronavirus cases in her state.
Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t wait to pile on one last lecture.
…I’d like to hear you put some of that anger and this passion toward governments that didn’t care about people because that’s what they’re supposed to do. So I want you to go out and fight for all those people who aren’t getting what they’re supposed to, aren’t getting the information they need, and then I think I’ll feel better watching you tell people ‘I’m feeding my people’.
There is one paradox in this scenario that must be told. The core tenet of acting is empathy, the ability to put yourself in the shoes of others to build the most realistic performance possible. Even the stars tasked with playing serial killers understand the wisdom behind this technique.
However, sympathy seems far from the minds of these stars. Cake, however, is not far from their thoughts.
