Bette Midler is at it again.
“The View” co-host raised eyebrows when she sent a series of unhinged tweets targeting conservative figures. The actress published a series of tweets demanding popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson, News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch, and former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich be “arrested” and more.
#tuckercarlson should be arrested and tried for sedition and fomenting insurrection. #Murdoch should have his citizenship revoked; the damage he continues to do to our democracy will soon become irreparable. #NewtGingrich should be clapped in irons for getting him past the #FCC.

The Daily Wire reports:
The 76-year-old actress made the comments following the mass shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo that left ten people dead. She tweeted to her followers that Carlson should be “arrested” and Gingrich “clapped in irons” for getting Murdoch “past the FCC,” without truly explaining the last part.
“#tuckercarlson should be arrested and tried for sedition and fomenting insurrection,” the “Hocus Pocus” star wrote to her two million followers. “#[Rupert] Murdoch should have his citizenship revoked; the damage he continues to do to our democracy will soon become irreparable.”
“#NewtGingrich should be clapped in irons for getting him past the #FCC,” she added.
The “Beaches” star a short time later tweeted that if the “unalienable rights” described in the Declaration of Independence cannot be delivered to the citizens, then the government is “worthless.”
Midler has been making waves on Twitter recently. Last week she was lambasted over a tweet telling mothers concerned over the current baby formula shortage to try breastfeeding.
“TRY BREASTFEEEDING!” the actress tweeted to millions. “It’s free and available on demand.”
