Without Donald Trump to constantly heckle, Bette Midler is setting her sights on Republican lawmakers who continue to support the former president.
Midler took aim at Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Lauren Boebert (R-CO), and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) Tuesday night on social media, writing that she imagines the three GOP politicians being lost at sea.
“Oh, this isn’t a joke setup, I’m just fantasizing,” the Hollywood star wrote Tuesday.

In recent days, Midler has used her social media platform to attack other GOP lawmakers, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and freshman Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC). Earlier this week, the actress appeared to egg on Sen. Paul’s neighbor who physically assaulted the politician in 2017, resulting in broken ribs and other injuries.
#RandPaul refuses to say the election wasn't stolen. My question is: who is still TRYING to get #randpaulisaliar to say anything? Who wants to hear it, besides his grifter dad or that neighbor who's just looking for #OneMoreGoodReason?

She also called the wheelchair-bound Rep. Cawthorn a “mediocrity” and a “knucklehead.”
Midler has a history of going too far when attacking conservatives on social media. She apologized last year for making fun of first lady Melania Trump’s accent and apologized again for sharing a fake quote that she attributed to President Trump.
Despite her apology, the Beaches star still hasn’t deleted the original tweet about Melania Trump.
Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.

Midler has even advocated for physical violence against Trump, tweeting in November that she wanted Joe Biden to kick the president “in the nuts.”
