Bette Midler and 14 Other Twitter Users Mock Trump’s Robot in Disney’s Hall of Presidents
Written by Daniel Villarreal on December 20, 2017
You might’ve heard that U.S. President Donald Trump was recently added to Disney World’s Hall of Presidents attraction in its Orlando, Florida theme park. Naturally, folks on Twitter started mocking the Trump Hall of Presidents statue shortly after its unveiling, both because the statue looks terrifying and because the man it represents is so hideous in his own ways.

Bette Midler, Jason Isbell Join Statement to Congress Urging CLASSICS Act Passage
12/20/2017 by Billboard Staff
A group of more than 40 artists, including Jason Isbell, Emmylou Harris, Henry Rollins and Bette Midler, have signed a letter to Congress urging them to pass the CLASSICS Act, which would require digital radio services such as SiriusXM to pay royalties on pre-1972 sound recordings.
“Digital radio makes billions of dollars a year from airplay of music made before 1972,” the artists wrote. “Yet, because of an ambiguity in state and federal copyright laws, artists and copyright owners who created that music receive nothing for the use of their work. The ‘CLASSICS Act’ would correct this inequity and finally ensure that musicians and vocalists who made those timeless songs finally get their due. We urge Congress to pass the CLASSICS Act and other pro-artist reforms quickly.”

Bette Midler – Season’s Greetings!!!
The Year When Bette Stormed Broadway, and Trump ‘Died’ in Central Park: NYC Theater in 2017
12.19.17 5:00 AM ET
The best NYC theater of 2017 spanned Bette Midler in ‘Hello Dolly,’ Jake Gyllenhaal in Sondheim, and Tony Kushner telling The Daily Beast he was planning a play about Donald Trump.
It is rare for theater to make the news.
CBS may give one Sunday a year over to the Tony Awards (and here is what won what this year), but these celebrate the best of Broadway; theater made as safe and glittery as possible. Any edge is left to the winners’ speeches and hosts’ japing.
