Actress Bette Midler is facing harsh criticism after posting a fake quote attributed to President Donald Trump.

As IJR Red previously reported, the actress has been known to get political in the past and recently posted a picture of Trump with a quote under the picture. The quote was falsely labeled as being part of a People magazine interview and had Trump saying offensive things about Republicans.

Take a look:

Midler tweeted the quote, saying, “He certainly knew his crowd.” However, many were quick to point out that it was fake.

Here are reactions to her tweet:

“Heya [Brian Stelter] Here’s a verified social media attempt to massively spread misinformation,” said Stephen Miller. “I know this might jeopardize free Broadway theater tickets but maybe you and Oliver should get on this?”

“I’m old enough to remember when fake news about the speaker of the house in the form of a video shared on social media was going to be the end of the republic and people were quite mad that facebook wouldn’t remove the video and yet here we are,” said Josh Perry.

Washington Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold revealed that they have started an investigation into who originated the quote.

“The Washington Free Beacon has launched a comprehensive investigation to find whoever first made this fake screenshot and publish their name and criminal history,” said Griswold.

“But seriously why is this up? This is just as scurrilous as drunk Pelosi and it’s been debunked so so so many times in the past,” tweeted media editor Jon Levine.

Midler apologized for the tweet, saying that it sounded like something he would say.

Although she apologized, the damage was already done.

Bette Midler has been an odious sort–a common libtard, DemCommunist bully–for decades now.
I will tell my grandchildren how horrible she was and to spit if they should ever hear her name.

I can see where Midler would get confused, she , like ALL the other libtards fall for an alleged comment that allegedly Hillary had said, it went something like this, “Look, the average Democrat is just plain stupid. They’re easy to manipulate. That’s the easy part.” She allegedly said it to Dick Morris in, “Rewriting History” in 2005…. But, let’s just throw President Trump in the mix!!!

I am so sick of all this BS I could scream. Let’s get on with things that matter instead
of all this BS the Dumbo-crats are spreading around. Tired of those damn elitest who want all that power. All they do is screw up our country and leave the working class paying for all the crap. They should be charged with “obstructing justise.” They are not following the oath of office they took. GOD FORGIVE THEM. (if he dare!)
