Bette Midler: I’d ‘make a better president … and I’m about clueless!’

Bette Midler says even though she’s “about clueless,” she thinks she’d “make a better president” than Donald Trump.

The 71-year-old, currently starring in a Broadway revival of “Hello, Dolly!” and a vocal critic of the commander in chief, took to Twitter on Tuesday to blast Trump following a bombshell report that he disclosed classified intelligence information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during a White House meeting last week.

Midler wrote to her more than one million followers:


The Golden Globe winner wrote a day earlier that Trump “is slowly, and surely burying himself.” Shortly after The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump revealed highly classified information to a U.S. adversary, Midler tweeted a link to the story and wrote, “Morons ‘R’ Us.”
It’s hardly the first time the politically active singer — who appeared at a fundraiser for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton last year — has denounced the president on social media. Midler and Trump tussled on Twitter back in 2012
