Bette Midler offered up a stunning reaction to a video President Donald Trump shared on Wednesday.

The president shared the entertaining, tongue-in-cheek video after his Senate acquittal on both counts of impeachment.

What are the details?

The video features a manipulated animation of a Time magazine cover with Trump 2020 campaign signs dating through the year 90000 and beyond.

While the video was clearly a clever joke, Midler, 74, took it very seriously.

"HE PINNED THIS. YOU THINK THIS IS A JOKE, DON'T YOU?" she blasted in an all-caps tweet. "IT'S NOT. HE MEANS IT. HE WILL CHANGE THE RULES AND HIS ENABLERS WILL LET HIM. IF HE WINS AGAIN, HE WILL RULE YOU UNTIL HE DIES, YOU DIE, OR BOTH. THEN ... YOU'LL GET IVANKA."

At the time of this writing, Midler's tweet has attracted more than 19,000 comments — many of them calling her out for not being able to take a joke.

Despite the outcry against her reaction, Midler tweeted on Thursday that the president is "the malignant force."

"The most unprincipled man to ever hold the highest office in the land will be spinning his ass off for YOU, the American public, at 12pm today. He will try to convince you that he is pure and the victim of malignant forces you cannot see. He's not. HE IS THE MALIGNANT FORCE."

Anything else?

This is hardly the first time one of Midler's many anti-Trump tweets has fallen flat.

In July, Midler caught the ire of some of her fellow celebrities after a controversial tweet about black Trump supporters.

She shared a photo of black men at a Trump rally and captioned it, "Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did [Trump] pay them to be 'blackground?'"

She later deleted the tweet after the backlash.
