It all started when Bette Midler tweeted about that Donald Trump quote from over the weekend. You know, the one where he said he could shoot someone in the middle of New York's Fifth Avenue and not lose any votes in the upcoming presidential primary.

Well, he's definitely not getting Kelly Clarkson's vote after that statement. The original American Idol winner responded to Midler's tweet, and she's not impressed.

For a refresher, here's Trump's comment in action:

In an interview on Monday (Jan. 25), Trump walked back the comment, telling CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer "of course, I was joking."
