Frequent Trump White House critic actress/singer Bette Midler said she went too far in mocking Melania Trump's accent this week, and apologizing for a tweet in which she called the former model an "illegal alien."
The Grammy, Emmy and Tony-winning star -- who has made a second career of posting biting tweets attacking Pres. Trump's policies and public statements multiple times a day for the past three years -- dropped several especially barbed comments about the Slovenia-born First Lady's speech at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night.
On Wednesday, Midler walked things back a bit, tweeting, "Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania 'still can’t speak English' last night. I was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always."
