Midler continued to blast the president in a series of Tweets after the exchange. She Tweeted about the poor fit of the tuxedo he wore while meeting the Queen of England on Monday, praised London’s mayor Sadiq Khan, with whom Trump had a public Twitter feud earlier in the week, and accused Trump of lying about the crowds he met on his visit to the U.K. this week.

It’s not the first time Trump has insulted the actress. He has in the past called her “extremely unattractive” and said that she “sucked.” Midler has been a vocal critic of Trump throughout his term, and has often taken to Twitter to share her opinions.
