Is Bette Midler running for US presidency?

Bette Midler has announced that sheâ€™s running for US presidencyâ€¦ kind of.
While weâ€™d love to see the musical icon taking place in the White House, Bette was actually giving us a major throwback to one of her 90s performances.
Writing on Twitter, the musician said: â€œTired of our candidates for prez? Quit your carping! Tomorrow Iâ€™ll be announcing a 3rd party candidate whoâ€™s up to her gills in good ideas!â€
Of course, Bette was referencing her on-stage alter-ego, Delores DeLago, a wheelchair-bound mermaid who announced that sheâ€™d be running for president during her Divine Miss Millennium tour back in 1999.
Itâ€™s been 17 years since, but could we finally be seeing a place in the White House for the musical icon? Weâ€™d take Bette over Donald Trump any dayâ€¦
