Bette Midler doesn’t suffer fools gladly, nor does she pull punches.
On Sunday during the most Miss Universe pageant ever, Bette Midler found the humor in host Steve Harvey accidentally naming Miss Colombia as the winner — only to have to step up and announce he’d misread and Miss Philippines had won the crown and sash.
Midler remembered a similar occurrence 15 years ago that haunts us to this very day.
Here’s her tweet:
Wrong #MissUniverse crowned last night. For 2 minutes. Remember when that happened with our President in 2000 & we had to keep him 8 years?
