Comedian Norm Macdonald called out singer and actress Bette Midler for her tweet earlier this week attempting to shame the woman who accused former Sen. Al Franken of sexual misconduct.
On Monday, Midler shamed Leeann Tweeden, Franken’s accuser. In a tweet, the legendary performer suggested Tweeden was “right wing” and forced Franken to resign over allegations of mere “untoward” conduct.
“#LeeAnnTweeden, #AlFrankens accuser, in all her right wing glory. Al was forced to resign, without anything resembling due process, amid HER allegations that something 'untoward' happened between them,” Midler tweeted.
Midler included a picture of her tweet of Tweeden wearing lingerie, a common slut-shaming technique.

Bette Midler has become increasingly unhinged as she has aged, and has spewed an immense amount of toxic vitrol against President Trump and his millions of supports. It's heartening to see a real patriot like Norm Macdonald stand up to her dangerous insanity.
Bette, if you haven't heard, #metoo has nothing to do with due process. But you putting a picture of this women in lingerie, implying she had it coming, is truly disgusting and what rape apologists have been saying forever. Shame. https://t.co/DP0CDq5fFW— Norm Macdonald (@normmacdonald) July 24, 2019
