Bette Midler roasted for Melania Trump tweets: ‘Get that illegal alien off the stage’

Entertainer Bette Midler was ripped on social media after mocking Melania Trump’s accent during the first lady’s Republican National Committee speech from the Rose Garden late Tuesday and for referring to her as an “illegal alien.”

“#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!” Midler tweeted to her 1.9 million followers.

“Oh, God. She still can’t speak English,” the 74-year-old singer and actress also wrote.

The backlash to Midler was swift on social media.

Melania Trump, 50, was born and raised in Yugoslavia before coming to the U.S., with her first language being Slovenian. She also speaks four other languages: English, French, German and Italian.

She described President Trump as a champion for families during her keynote address to the GOP convention and implored Americans to reelect him.
