Bette Midler suggests beheading Manafort; Questions raised: Does she want Trump beheaded?

In a tweet issued Monday morning, Bette Midler suggested that indicted former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort be beheaded, Newsbusters reported.

“INDICTED!! Roll out the tumbrils!!” she tweeted.

For those not familiar with the Middle English term, a tumbril is “an open cart that tilted backward to empty out its load, in particular one used to convey condemned prisoners to the guillotine during the French Revolution.”

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“Does Bette Midler want Trump guillotined?” Corinne Weaver asked at Newsbusters. “Apparently.”

Of course, an indictment is not the same as a conviction, but it seems things like “due process” mean nothing to Midler, who instantly went to, “off with his head.”

Her liberal supporters were in full agreement.

One person agreed, even after looking up the term:


If they didn’t before, they do now.

Weaver said that Midler wasn’t the only celebrity rejoicing over the news:

All of Hillary’s biggest celebrity supporters, acting as circling sharks since November 9, 2016, spent October 30 on Twitter wildly celebrating the indictment of a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump. Singer Cher stated today: “WHY DO ALL “TRUMP” ROADS LEAD TO RUSSIA.”

Actor and activist George Takei was beyond thrilled, “There are 12 charges. It rather evokes a Xmas carol: “On the first day of charges, Mueller gave to me: Manafort on treas’nous conspiracy!”

He continued with his celebration: “It’s normally wrong to celebrate like it’s Christmas before it’s even Halloween, but dammit let’s make an exception today. #MuellerMonday.”

“Meathead” Rob Reiner added:

Weaver added:

While it’s easy for these celebrities to condemn politics and celebrate over Russian links, it apparently is difficult for them to solve the out of control problem of sexual abuse in their own “backyard,” as actress Jessica Chastain rebuked them earlier in October. It’s also telling that the American people didn’t want the candidate handpicked by Hollywood, but instead chose the alternative.

Of course, what these celebrity haters fail to understand is that nothing in the indictment against Manafort relates to Trump or his campaign, and could easily be a way to get to the Podestas, as Rush Limbaugh suggested.

Nevertheless, it says a lot about Midler and her leftist hatemongers that they would actually support beheading as a means of dealing with those with whom they disagree.  In fact, they sound an awful lot like another group (or two) we’ve reported on…

Exit question: Does Midler agree with fellow Hollywood liberal Michael Shannon that it’s time for Trump voters to die?
