Bette Midler On Texas Deadly Winter Storm: '#God doesn't seem to like #TedCruz or #JohnCornyn'

A huge winter storm swept across the southern US and has killed more than 20 people leaving millions without power.

Texas has been one of the worst hit with widespread blackouts, where the energy grid was overwhelmed by a surge in demand.  Millions of people in the state have been struggling to cope with the lack of power and frigid conditions.

Bette Midler implied it’s payback for Ted Cruz and John Cornyn.  She tweeted her divine retribution theory late Tuesday, describing the Republican senators from Texas as “hateful,” “vicious,” and “cruel.” She suggested that God is punishing the politicians for voicing objections to the Electoral College certification in January.

While Sen. Cruz registered his challenge to Biden’s certification, Midler incorrectly cited Sen. Cornyn, who declined to join fellow Republican lawmakers in their Electoral College objections.

“I feel for the people suffering thru this weather, but #God doesn’t seem to like #TedCruz or #JohnCornyn. These two also never recognized that #Joe won,” she wrote. “If this isn’t payback, I don’t know what is.”

Midler also blamed the winter storm on climate change, saying that Al Gore warned of such possibilities three decades ago.

In 2019, Bette Midler tweeted that Hurricane Dorian was nature’s “revenge,” implying that Mother Nature was exacting retribution against mankind.
