President Trump blasted actress Bette Midler as a “washed up psycho” in an early morning tweet after the actress shared a false quote and attributed it to the president.
Trump sent the tweet at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday from London, where he and his family are for a state visit.
“Washed up psycho @BetteMidler was forced to apologize for a statement she attributed to me that turned out to be totally fabricated by her in order to make ‘your great president’ look really bad,” Trump wrote.
“She got caught, just like the Fake News Media gets caught. A sick scammer!” he added.
Midler shared a widely debunked quote that she alleged Trump said in an interview with People Magazine.
Midler apologized for the gaff in a tweet on Monday, writing: “I apologize; this quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ‘15-16. Don’t know how I missed it, but it sounds SO much like him that I believed it was true!”
