Bette Midler, Big Boi & More React to Biden/Trump Debate: ‘How Many TV Screens Are Going to Be Broken Tonight?’

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump faced off Thursday night (June 27) in their first debate ahead of November’s general election, and among the audience of voters tuning in to CNN were a handful of musicians and celebrities taking to social media to weigh in.

Most active among them was Bette Midler, who was a vocal critic of Trump’s first term and stuck to her guns in a string of posts on X (formerly Twitter) throughout the debate.


“All my friends are taking their blood pressure medicine now, preparing for the debate,” Midler tweeted ahead of the face-off. “I wonder how many TV screens are going to be broken tonight?” It remains to be seen whether Midler’s TV will stay intact on Thursday, as her posts called out Trump’s “astonishing” comments. “Every word out of his mouth is a lie. Every single word.”

Midler made her stance even clearer with this tweet: “The Worst President In The History of The United States. The absolute worst, Donald Trump, now and forever.”

Outkast rapper Big Boi kept things a little briefer in his X posts, typing “WTF” and a red-faced, wide-eyed emoji during the debate.

The first presidential debate ahead of the 2024 general election aired on CNN and was moderated by the network’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.
