Bette Midler Says She Was Wrong for Mocking Melania Trump's Accent

Bette Midler is admitting that one of her tweets about Melania Trump and her speech at the Republican National Convention was wrong.

The legendary singer and actress live-tweeted the first night of the RNC earlier this week and she also had some commentary for Melanias speech on night two.

“Oh, God. She still can’t speak English,” Bette tweeted while Melania spoke from the Rose Garden at the White House.

Bette was criticized from people on both the left and the right for this tweet. The next day, she apologized for her comment.

“Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania ‘still can’t speak English’ last night. I was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up [of] people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always,” she tweeted.

Bette celebrated some very happy news for her family earlier this year.
