"Love Trumps hate!"

The tolerant left strike again.

These peeps couldn't be more hypocritical if they tried.

Bette Midler's Rand Paul tweet sparks outrage

Bette Midler shocked the Twitterverse on Thursday with a post suggesting Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., should be physically attacked for his stance on the spending budget in the Senate.

Midler tweeted Thursday evening, "Where's Rand Paul's neighbor when we need him?"

Midler's tweet was referencing a violent November incident during which Paul was assaulted by his neighbor and suffered several injuries.

Rene A. Boucher, 58, admitted to attacking an unsuspecting Paul in his yard and is facing 21 months in prison. Paul suffered bruises to his lungs, broken ribs and also contracted pneumonia following the attack.


One of Paul's aides, Sergio Gor, called out Midler for the tweet that crossed the line.

"This is disgusting @BetteMidler calling for violence. She should be ashamed," Gor tweeted.

A rep for Midler did not return Fox News' request for comment.

The Hollywood star's tweet came after the former 2016 GOP presidential contender stalled his chamber's attempt to quickly pass legislation keeping federal agencies open.

The libertarian said "I object" when Senate leaders tried speeding a vote on the measure.

Paul complained the new budget accord would drive up federal deficits.

"I ran for office because I was critical of President Obama's trillion-dollar deficits," he told the chamber's leaders. "Now we have Republicans hand-in-hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits."

He said he could not "look the other way because my party is now complicit in the deficits."

Paul said he was asking for a 15-minute debate and then a vote on his amendment, which was certain to lose. He said the 652-page measure was "printed at midnight" and was a bill that "no one has read."

Paul's fellow Kentuckian, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had no intention of caving in, knowing that would inevitably spark demands for amendment votes by other senators. Instead, they offered him a procedural vote, which Paul declined.

The move led the government to temporarily shut down from 1 a.m. on Friday until the Senate passed the deal just before 2 a.m.. However, the government had been officially shuttered for nearly two hours.

The House rushed to approve its version, wrapping up the vote just after 5:30 a.m. President Donald Trump signed the bill three hours later, reopening the government.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

That's in reference to Rand's neighbor that ambushed him and broke his ribs a few months ago...Midler is advocating violence...

Thanks.
Yeah. I get it. Well Paul had a point. And news didn't spell it out. He wanted a 15 minute vote on whether they were abandoning the plan to pay for the tax plan with spending cuts. He wanted to call attention to the fact both democrats and republicans were willing to add more to the debt to get their pet projects.

I'm pretty sure every reasonable person understands it as a bad joke.

I doubt she really is hoping harm on a United States Senator. Except for Hairy Jello of course, who gets offended at every little thing the daily caller or fox news tells him too.

By the way, did we ever find out what that was all about? Why would his neighbor attack him? Did he let his dog poop on his lawn? Maybe rand was banging his neighbors wife. It's such a bizarre story. I need answers.

The list of people wishing violence is long....We even have a state senator hoping for a Trump assassination...

Also...The shooting of the Steve Scalise and the Republican softball team...

I know every time someone on the Right says something, it is taken literally or gets reinterpreted to mean the worst possible scenario, while people on the Left are given 567 benefits of a doubt...and then another 500 more...

I know there are threats of violence. Anytime you are in the public eye you get weirdos coming out of everywhere. Trump is a magnet even more so because he is brutish and vulgar. But Obama was serene as far as personality and he still had people carrying openly in a threatening manner at his rallies. It is what it is. I just hope no one makes a marter out of him.
