Casting Inevitable Donald Trump Election Movie

Bette Midler tried and failed to fact check President Donald Trump's first congressional speech on Tuesday night, and Twitter isn't letting her down easy.

"Trump says that 4,000 people were shot in Chicago in 2016. Chicago Tribune says 2016 ended with 762 homicides," the actress tweeted with a link to a Chicago Tribune article headlined, "2016 ends with 762 homicides."

One glaring problem with that statement: Being shot is not the same thing as being killed.
