The most-discussed news stories this week? Last night’s first debate of Republican presidential candidates and Lenny Kravitz’s wardrobe malfunction during a concert in Stockholm (see it again here!), of course. Leave it to the ever-brassy Bette Midler to tie the two earth-shattering events together with a very succinct and completely accurate commentary via her Twitter account. The Divine one tweeted:

Certainly one of the biggest dicks on the stage in Cleveland last night was, naturally, Donald Trump. When questioned by  moderator Megyn Kelly about his ugly penchant for referring to women he didn’t like as “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” the follicly-challenged billionaire blowhard interrupted with “Only Rosie O’Donnell” to a disturbing amount of roaring applause from the audience. O’Donnell, who has never been shy about calling out Trump for his primordial behavior, offered a simple six-word rejoinder.    

Boom! The mic has been dropped.
