On Monday the star expressed his frustration with Mancini, who represents West Virginia, when Democratic Senator Joe Biden announced that he would not support the Built Back Better Act.
Midler first tweeted, “What #Jomansin, which represents a smaller population than Brooklyn, did to other parts of the United States that wanted to move forward, not as backward as his state, was horrible.”
“He sold us,” he wrote. “He wants us all to be like his state of West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and backward.”
“I apologize to the good people of WVA for my last outburst,” he tweeted in part. “I see red.”
