Actress Bette Midler tweeted that people will “burn, drown, or starve” due to climate change in a tweet sent Tuesday.

“Morning TV dedicates time to the new UN , and it’s dire, dire dire. But , I mean , doesn’t give a shit. I guess science was not his strong suit, nor is it the strength of the bums he surrounds himself with. You’ll burn, drown or starve,” Bette Midler tweeted.

Midler also sent a tweet fantasizing about the roof of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home getting blown off.

“The only time will pay attention is whenthe roof of Mar-a-Lago blows off, and the waves are lapping at the first tee,” she wrote.

The 72-year-old recently made headlines for saying that women are the “n-word of the world.”

“‘Women, are the n-word of the world’ Raped, beaten,  enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years. They are the most disrespected creatures on earth,” Midler tweeted.

She later deleted this tweet and sent an apology note, saying, “The too brief investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh infuriated me. Angrily I tweeted w/o thinking my choice of words would be enraging to black women who doubly suffer, both by being women and by being black. I am an ally and stand with you; always have. And I apologize.”
