President Donald Trump launched a Twitter feud against actress Bette Midler — at 1:30 a.m. — while on his overseas trip to the United Kingdom.
But they weren’t the only ones criticizing the president’s outburst.
Here is what other people were saying on Twitter:
good use of ironic air quotes, at least https://t.co/rzrpVtw6uw

‘Washed up psycho’?
1) The fact that you’re using your platform to bully a citizen is beyond appalling!
2) @BetteMidler won 3 Grammys, 3 Emmys, & a Tony.
You were awarded Bone Spur of the year! 🤔 5 yrs running?
3) You’re a despicable human!

Trump has sent out many outrageous tweets to attract attention and get revenge. But this one really stands out as particularly abusive and goes beyond just regular bullying. This is the President using his overwhelmingly powerful platform to destroy a private citizen. It’s scary.ADVERTISEMENT

I think @BetteMidler can drop the mic and walk off into the sunset after this.

Apologizing for something fake? Where is your Nancy Pelosi doctored video apology? Bette Midler has more class in her pinky finger than you've had in your entire life.ADVERTISEMENT

To boot, she was in THE FIRST WIVES CLUB and I believe you are in the THIRD WIVES CLUB.

Also she was in HOCUS POCUS and well, you believe uncovering your crimes is a witch hunt, so there's that.

First of all, Bette Miller did something you are incapable of doing. She made a mistake and APOLOGIZED. You carried on that birther crap for years and never apologized. Washed up psycho? It isn’t Bette, you must have been looking in a mirror, you misogynist coward

Now it’s almost 2 in the morning where you are and you’re rage tweeting about Bette Midler. On the eve of the D Day anniversary. She’s an award winning talent while you are a demented, syphilitic slug, a boil on the ass of humanity. Oh, and a criminal to boot. Sad! #TrumpresignADVERTISEMENT

Would you be on, @BetteMidler? I propose that @BetteMidler and @realDonaldTrump take a full battery of objective neuro-psych testing, simultaneously in public and waive confidentiality so results are disclosed publicly.
Let's see if there is a "psycho" among us… https://t.co/qD2srM4pIG

Now, just hours before the President is called upon to mark the 75th anniversary of one of the most heroic events in world history — D-Day — where so many gave their lives in the name of freedom, our President soulfully reflects on the significance of the day ahead. https://t.co/e1T4Eu3Jb0

I saw Bette Midler trending. I was concerned for her health. Phew. Thankfully she's OK. The President, however, continues to be unhinged.

What's the point of even having a 'Terms of Service' if your most publicized user can still constantly cyber-bully private citizens without consequence?
