Here’s another example of someone on the left going completely off the deep end. Bette Midler has compared Republicans to Assad gassing people because she doesn’t like the new healthcare bill.
She doesn’t seem to realize that this is not only an insult to Republicans but also to Assad’s victims.

Bette Midler: GOP Are ‘#HomeGrownAssads’ ‘Gassing Their Own’ With Health Care Bill
When the House passed the GOP’s ObamaCare replacement, the AHCA last Thursday, there was no shortage of angry celebrities attacking the GOP in profanity-laced tweets, claiming the GOP “will pay” for it come election time. Looks like the anger has not died down in Hollywood yet. Actress and singer Bette Midler followed the rest of her ilk’s partisan and vile lead, tweeting that the GOP was “gassing their own people” by repealing ObamaCare.
Of course, Bashar al-Assad is the Syrian President who has been accused of gassing his own people in devastating chemical attacks over the last few years (including last month). President Trump responded to the chemical attack by launching a series of missile strikes as a warning against Assad.
Here’s the tweet:

@BetteMidler Your tweet is beyond the pale.
Comparing a bill to gassing people?
That is irresponsible.
Pro tip: If you agree with Pelosi, re-examine.

@BetteMidler This kind of idiocy minimizes the horror of what Assad does. You're an evil person for this.
