Bette Midler slammed for NSFW poem about Donald and Melania Trump

It's safe to say that President Donald Trump's Twitter game isn't one of his strengths (I'm sure we all remember the "covfefe" fiasco). However, despite Trump's relentless tweeting and often careless retweeting, it seems he's not the only person who should step away from their keyboard.

Take singer, actress, and archnemesis of Donald Trump, Bette Midler, who has recently found herself in hot water after penning an unsavory "poem" about the POTUS and his wife, Melania, and sharing it with her 1.7 million Twitter followers.

Now, this certainly isn't the first time the 73-year-old actress has shared her anti-Trump feelings with her followers.

Back in November of last year, Midler tweeted an old topless modeling picture of the First Lady in an airplane cockpit, along with the words: "The dry cleaning bill for the upholstery on Air Force One must be insane. FLOTITS"

And more recently, Midler has hit out against Trump tweeting an image of a Trump Tower in Greenland, saying: "#Trump shared a meme promising he wouldn't put a gold Trump Tower in #Greenland. But I think we're all smart enough not to trust anything he says about any of his ugly erections."

However, yesterday (August 21), Midler found herself under fire after sharing a short poem about the Trumps that many of her followers found to be "racist" and "slut-shaming".

The offensive poem reads:

"A poem from Melania:

Each day I'm filled with the hope
That #Donald won't be such a Dope
So I get on my knees
And say vip it out plise
As I reach for my new microscope."

Twitter users were quick to share their feelings about Midler's tasteless limerick:

Of course, judging from Trump's previous tweets about the actress, it's safe to say the President's opinions of Midler are - shall we say - mutual:

In fact, their animosity for each other goes so deep, Jimmy Kimmel decided to do some digging and discover the real reason these two despise one another so much. You can't argue with his reasoning:
