Bette Midler, an American singer, comedian, actress, film producer, and song writer made an absolute fool of herself on Twitter. She quickly hopped up to “correct” Donald Trump who said that 4k people were shot in Chicago in 2016, because Chicago Tribune says the year ended with 762 homicides.
Trump says that 4000 people were shot in Chicago in 2016. Chicago Tribune says 2016 ended with 762 homicides. https://t.co/f0AoJBDexV

Um….Bette, you do realize that not every person who is shot, dies…..right? Yikes.
People were very quick to correct her.
4,367 shot to be exact.
I guess the concept that people can be shot and injured didn’t occur to you? This is the genius of Bette.
Go sing🎶 https://t.co/VqxGklgsDP
