Actress Bette Midler tweeted Wednesday that the unprecedented winter storm battering Texas and several other states this week is "payback" for GOP Texas Sens.

At least 10 people have died as a result of Winter Storm Uri, and widespread outages have left millions to brave below-freezing temperatures without power.

The "Hocus Pocus" star and longtime Trump critic said she feels for the people who are suffering but that the storm could be God's way of getting revenge on the two GOP lawmakers.


"If this isn't payback, I don't know what is," she wrote.

The actress, known for her strong Democratic stance on social media, tweeted the message in response to another tweet that dubbed Cornyn and Cruz "the most inept Senators." The tweet questioned their request for disaster relief amid Uri despite the fact that both men voted against federal aid during Hurricane Sandy.

While both senators were Trump supporters, only Cruz formally objected last month to Congress's certification of Biden's Electoral College victory. 

Cornyn had cast doubt on GOP efforts to overturn the election results.
