Senator Rand Paul spoke on the Senate floor last night about government spending. That didn’t sit well with far left celebrity Bette Midler who took to Twitter and called for violence against the senator.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Not funny: Bette Midler calls for attack on Rand Paul
Actress and comic Bette Midler reacted to Sen. Rand Paul’s effort to stall Senate passage of the massive spending budget by urging an attack on him like the November assault by a neighbor that caused severe injuries.
Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?

During Paul’s floor challenge to the budget, hailed by deficit hawks, Midler tweeted: “Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?”
One of Paul’s top aides, Sergio Gor tweeted back, “This is disgusting @BetteMidler calling for violence. She should be ashamed.”
Midler’s tweet was an apparent reference to Rene A. Boucher, 58, of Bowling Green, Ky., who has admitted to a sneak attack on Paul as he did yard work, upset at the job the senator was doing.

Don’t forget, Rand Paul was also on the baseball field last spring when a crazed Bernie fan opened fire on Republicans. Midler is just encouraging more violence.
