Left-wing actress Bette Midler took to social media this week and suggested that someone in President Donald Trump’s “camp” should “shiv” or stab him.

“He actually looks better here! Maybe someone in his camp can gently give him a shiv. I mean, shove,” Bette Midler said on Tuesday night. The actress was piggybacking on a tweet by Michael Moore, who had ranted about President Trump’s surprise visit to McLean Bible Church in Virginia on Sunday.

“Seriously, WTF is this? At what the WH said was ‘a memorial for the 12 shot dead in Virginia Beach’ (it wasn’t), Trump, looking nothing like Trump, randomly wanders onto the altar in his golf shoes & cap, decides to stay for 15 min, then leaves, having thrown his curve at reality,” Michael Moore fumed.

Midler deleted the tweet after this original reporting.

For Midler, this is just the latest in a growing list of fantasies she’s shared with her 1.5 million Twitter followers about the death of President Trump, his family, or members of his administration.

In November Midler posted a poem about President Trump and his family being hanged “good and high.”

Trump Trump Trump
Bob Mueller’s marching,
Trump Trump Trump
And here is why
Trump Trump Trump
He’s gonna hang you
Hang the fam’ly

Midler later deleted the tweet. A week later, she imagined a funeral procession for a deceased President Trump.

The First Wives star’s “shiv” Trump tweet comes on the heels of her posting a People magazine quote falsely attributed to Trump, in which Midler used to trash the president’s supporters. Midler deleted that tweet, too.

President Trump fired back, calling Midler a “washed up psycho.”

This article has been updated to reflect that Bette Midler deleted her original tweet suggesting someone “shiv” President Trump.
