Legendary actress and singer Bette Midler took to social media on Monday to express her displeasure of Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Amy Coney Barrett (is) on board of a school that won’t allow in a student with a gay parent,” she tweets. “(She) has been groomed for decades, the ultimate product of #theKochs, #TheFederaists, (and) #TheHeritageFoundation. You working stiffs mean nothing to them. Five days for one justice and no relief for you.”

Barrett’s confirmation came Monday evening with a 52-48 Senate Vote. Barrett is a 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge and Notre Dame law professor. She is the third appointment to the supreme court by President Donald Trump.

Her confirmation comes just days before America selects its president for the next four years. The move came under scrutiny by senate democrats and public figures who say those on the right rushed the decision due to the upcoming election.

Midler Tweets Biden Support

It is far from the first time that Midler has tweeted her frustrations with conservatives. Not long after the aforementioned tweet, Midler appealed to a higher power, asking for a Joe Biden victory on the upcoming election day.

“Are you there, God?” she writes. “It’s me, Bette. I’m so scared God We have a fascist in the #WhiteHouse, a racist criminal who hates democracy, denies science and kills our citizens! #ElectionDay is next week. What if he wins? We won’t have a country! Please let #JoeBiden win. Thank you.”

Midler has found herself in the news cycle lately as she confirmed the cast of Halloween class “Hocus Pocus” will reunite for a sequel.

“They want to make a movie, they’ve asked us if we were interested and of course all of us said yes,” Midler told Good Day New York. “I’m game, I’m totally game.”
