Donald Trump “should be arrested for attempted murder” of Joe Biden

Bette Midler is calling on authorities to arrest former President Donald Trump for attempted murder, claiming that Trump made a deliberate attempt to infect Joe Biden with the coronavirus during a televised debate last year.

In an impassioned tweet early Friday, Bette Midler claimed Trump knew “full well that he was positive” with COVID-19 before the debate, but purposely showed up too late to be tested. Trump then “screamed, spat, spat and foamed in his mouth, hoping to infect Joe.”

Midler’s accusations appear to stem from a new book by former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, which states that the president tested positive for the coronavirus three days before the first presidential debate with Biden in September 2020.

The book says that after Trump tested positive he took another test using a more modern system that came back negative, leading staff to believe he could still attend the debate.

“The story of me having COVID before or during the first debate is fake news,” Trump said in a statement this week. “In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID before the debate. “

Bette Midler has used her numerous social networks to defend physical violence against some conservative politicians, including Trump and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY). She urged Joe Biden to kick President Trump “in the nuts” in the same presidential debate.
