That’ll show him! Bette Midler shows her support for Amy McGrath by shaming polio survivor Mitch McConnell over military discharge
Good news, Amy McGrath! You’ve managed to score the coveted Bette Midler endorsement. Which comes, of course, with the special Bette Midler brand of surgical strike:
This is great! A woman who is NOT married to a member of a huge Chinese shipping factory, and who ACTUALLY SERVED IN THE MILITARY, not like #bitchMitch who got out after 5 weeks! https://t.co/Z84gOLKLwl

Wow, did Bette tell Mitch McConnell or what?
Amy should find and make public the reasons why Mitch left military service. Methinks there’s juicy bits there.

Oh, for sure. Because as we all know, there’s no bit juicier than … a crippling and potentially fatal disease.
Yea! You tell that guy who had polio!

Mitch is a childhood polio survivor. The woman Bette's fawning over is self-described "pro-Trump." https://t.co/wLW0qdqfYh

To be fair, he does have a disability. I despise and detest him, but his lack of military service is not why. Rethink your atatement.

McConnell was reportedly discharged from the Army Reserve after less than six months because of optic neuritis, an eye condition. Funny that Midler’s the one who’s apparently blind.
