But despite all of the media attention, the outrage hasn't blown up into a trending topic on Twitter...yet, at least. Although tweet has attracted over 9,600 comments -- significantly higher than the few hundred comments that usually accompany a tweet from the "Hocus Pocus" star -- we don't see an overwhelming amount of negative reactions.
Lots of people commenting seem to have gotten a kick out of the joke, while supporters of President Donald Trump are predictably shaming the actress and some women from the other side of the aisle wish Midler wouldn't have shamed Melania for modeling her body.
See a sample of the mixed bag below:
Bette is making fun of Melania for what? Being a beautiful model? The left mocks her for the strangest things. Chelsea Handler even mocked her for her accent. Since when is that allowed? if a conservative mocked an immigrant First Lady for how she talked. The sky would fall down.
Now you've moved on to body Shaming? You? Honestly? Is this what you want your daughter to be like as well. Teach her that if you disagree Politically that all bets are off when it comes to how you are as a human being? #Shameful
