Hollywood star Bette Midler got busted promoting nonsense claims about Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake taken from a parody website.
Toby Morton is a comedy writer for South Park and MADtv and makes parody sites mocking the GOP. He has sites about Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Kari Lake, Elon Musk, and others. Midler is a mindless liberal who does think critically so she spread false information about Lake without batting an eye.
Midler wrote: “Heeere’s #KariLake, running for Gov of #Arizona, spewer of Q-anon conspiracies and all around nasty nut job! Don’t let the cute package fool you! She’s lethal!”
She linked to the parody site that said of Lake:
“I embrace far-right nationalism and the forceful suppression of any opposition. I strongly oppose Marxism, liberalism and democracy, and believe the state takes precedence over individual interests.
“I favor centralized rule, often a single party or leader, and embrace the idea of a national rebirth, a new greatness for my country.
“I have dissolved friendships in favor of criminal Trump and his followers.
“I once supported and was a close friend of a drag queen as well as a whole community of people who lived free as themselves, but that Kari is no more.
“I will never be her again.
“This is who I am now.
“I, like other Trumpers, cannot speak or think for myself.
“When one follows a leader blindly like a cult, there’s no telling what will happen.
“Know that if I become your Governor, I will answer to Trump.
“This isn’t an opinion, but a fact. I left my job as a newscaster for him and his ideals,” the site said.
