Bette Midler weighs in on the State of the Union and the President.
Jewish celebrities and other famous Tribe voices took to social media largely to praise President Barack Obama for what was his final State of the Union address.
Some were overtly political; others funny; and some took aim at the Republican delivering the opposition party’s response: South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
Here’s a sampling:
