Midler + Streisand Address Biden Trump Debate

Amongst many celebrities, Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand led the reactions to the Thursday (6.23) Trump-Biden debate.

Talking to their respective social media accounts to express their views of the the first 2024 presidential debate Bette Midler preempted the face-off with “All my friends are taking their blood pressure medicine now, preparing for the debate.” “I wonder how many TV screens are going to be broken tonight?” And as the televised confrontation took place, the singer/actress call ed out Trump’s remarks, writing, “My God, the way this f**ker lies. It’s just astonishing,” and,”Every word out of his mouth is a lie. Every single word.”

Now 82-years of age, Streisand stated that the debate had little to do with governance, writing, “Debates are not governing. They are about televised theatrics. Biden is accomplished at governing. He is experienced and has accomplished a great deal.”

Horror writer Stephen King added that the debate was cheapened politics, writing, “DEBATE NIGHT IN AMERICA! Sweet Jesus! The networks are packaging this as entertainment, like a boxing match, and selling democracy down the river. It’s a shame.”

Ahead of the event, Star Wars star Mark Hamill had low expectations, writing “Keeping my expectations low for this debate considering the highlight last time was “Will you shut up, man?!”” he wrote.
