Tuesday morning, before any of the “Super Tuesday” results were known, anti-Trump performer Bette Midler declared she was “all in for Mike Bloomberg” on Twitter.
TODAY IS SUPER TUESDAY, as if you didn’t know.
And I am all in for @MikeBloomberg. Rail at me all you want, but I saw New York City go from being down on its knees to standing upright and proud after 9-11. It was a long haul, tough; not without mistakes, but he got it done.
Ironically for Midler, Bloomberg was not mayor at the time of 9/11, Rudy Giuliani was. Bloomberg did not become mayor until months later.
Later in the evening, Midler continued to defend Bloomberg even as Super Tuesday results began to show a bad night for the billionaire.
Midler replied to President Trump and tweeted:
We’ll see about that, #DodoDon. Never count #Bloomberg out. He’s smarter than you, richer than you, and has more success and better friends than you, and none of them are in jail, like so many of yours.

Per Chicago Tribune, Mike Bloomberg will reassess on Wednesday whether he should stay in the race after getting disappointing results in Super Tuesday primaries despite spending more than a half billion dollars on his campaign.
A person close to the Bloomberg campaign confirmed the deliberations. The person wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter by name and requested anonymity.
Bloomberg, a billionaire businessman and former New York mayor, spent sums never before seen in political campaign history since entering the race in November. Millions of dollars went toward states like Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee — all three of which former Vice President Joe Biden won handily on Tuesday, riding a wave after his decisive victory in South Carolina.
