As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Bloomberg is Out

In a statement, he did not say specifically that his money is still in, as promised, just that he’d keep fighting to defeat President Trump.

He also endorsed Joe Biden.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Michael Bloomberg dropped out of the Democratic presidential race and endorsed Joe Biden, marking the end of a high-spending, self-funded campaign that rejected conventional campaign tactics. 

His announcement comes as early results in Super Tuesday states show that he failed to become the choice of centrists as dropout candidates and Democratic leaders coalesced around the former vice president in the days before the Tuesday contests. 

“I’m a believer in using data to inform decisions. After yesterday’s results, the delegate math has become virtually impossible — and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists,” Bloomberg said in a statement Wednesday. 

He endorsed centrist ally Biden in an apparent bid to stop socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from winning the Democratic presidential nomination. 

“I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden,” Bloomberg said.

Looks like this woman seized the stage during the warmup for Michael Bloomberg.

Kind of funny, they couldn’t just drag her off. “That is not democracy. That is plutocracy,” she yells.

There’s going to be a lot of this, because the left ain’t gonna be happy with Michael Bloomberg. I think in a lot of cases, their hatred for Donald Trump is not going to override their disgust with a billionaire buying the White House, which stands against everything they believe.

Bloomberg is not the savior for Democrats. I’m not sure who is. But I would watch Amy Klobuchar. She’s grown into her role as a presidential campaigner. But I suggest that she has a chance more because a lack of an alternative for Democrats than anything else.

Trump Campaign Bans Bloomberg News

Bloomberg is refusing to investigate either its owner, Michael Bloomberg, or the other Democratic candidates. But it will continue to go after President Trump and his campaign.

So Trump banned them, at least from the campaign.

Even some at Bloomberg must be in shock that they are being banned from investigating the Democratic candidates.

“This all could have been avoided had someone just stood up and said, you’re running for President of the United States now,” tweeted Megan Murphy, Bloomberg News Washington bureau chief during the 2016 election. “I really think you can handle your own newsroom of immensely talented editors and reporters covering you the same way they do everything else.

Where was the outcry about this from the rest of the press?

Closer to Jumping in: Bloomberg Flies to Arkansas to File for the Primary

Michael Bloomberg, if he gets in the race, could win the Democratic primary, as long as he is able to jettison Joe Biden from the moderate lane. And Biden is so bad, I think he can.

If he is the nominee, Bloomberg would present the bigger challenge to President Trump than any of the declared Democratic candidates. He could win enough Democrats and Republicans who are tired of Trump to become president. Then again, a lot of lefties would stay home. They’d be too disappointed he ruined their dreams of a Bernie or Pocahontas presidency.

According to the New York Times:

Michael R. Bloomberg flew to Arkansas on Tuesday morning to personally file paperwork to become a presidential candidate in the state’s Democratic primary, sending a highly public signal about his strong interest in entering the 2020 race.

Mr. Bloomberg arrived in Little Rock, Ark., with a few aides, according to two people familiar with his activities. Arkansas is the second state in which he will be on the Democratic primary ballot, after qualifying to put his name on the ballot in Alabama last Friday. The two southern states both have early filing deadlines, even though they are not among the first primaries on the calendar.

“Mike wanted to go and do the filing himself,” said Jason Schechter, a spokesman for Mr. Bloomberg. “If he runs, he’s going to go to states that Democrats never go to in the primary campaign. We’re starting that today in Arkansas.”

Mr. Bloomberg planned to have lunch at Sims BBQ with the mayor of Little Rock, Frank Scott Jr., during a brief visit to the city.

A spotlight on the people reshaping our politics. A conversation with voters across the country. And a guiding hand through the endless news cycle, telling you what you really need to know.SIGN UP

Mr. Bloomberg is considering a trip to North Carolina as soon as this week, two people briefed on his plans said. The state’s filing deadline is not imminent, but similar to Arkansas it is among the Super Tuesday contests in early March that Mr. Bloomberg would aim to contest aggressively as a candidate.

Michael Bloomberg Accused of Rampant Sexism

Uh oh. Might not work too well in the Democratic primaries.

And of course, it would deny him as the Democratic nominee ammunition he could use against President Trump, given the theory of, Don’t throw stones in glass houses if you yourself in habit one.

According to the Washington Examiner:

New York Magazine journalist reported that in his time spent with Bloomberg, he degraded women based on their appearance, in one instance ignoring the conversation they were in to gesture at a woman and say, “Look at the ass on her.” The same article recounts a female politician detailing how the mayor shamed her for wearing flats rather than heels and demeaned the gray streaks in her hair. 

New York Magazine also reported on a list of “Bloombergisms,” common phrases and quips the mayor used to make. These reportedly included “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s,” and “I know for a fact that any self-respecting woman who walks past a construction site and doesn’t get a whistle will turn around and walk past again and again until she does get one.”

Some of Bloomberg’s misogynistic acts and comments allegedly carry over into the workplace, meaning that his indiscretions do possibly cross over into the #MeToo realm of sexual harassment. For instance, several women have sued Bloomberg’s company for discrimination or sexual harassment, and the Atlantic piece documents their allegations. One female employee says that when she told Bloomberg she was pregnant, he responded with, “Kill it!” When she said she was engaged, Bloomberg responded, “What is the guy dumb and blind? What the hell is he marrying you for?”

Trump Says He Would Welcome Race Against Bloomberg

Well, Christmas is coming, and Michael Bloomberg is already doing some shopping.

This year, he’s thinking of buying the presidency. According to several reports, he has changed his previous view and may soon get in the Democratic primary.

He could win. The current group is such an amalgamation of nothings, it’s possible. I still think the leftists are going to carry Elizabeth Warren to victory. But with Biden looking weak, if Sanders divides the lefty vote with her, it could give an opening to Bloomberg.

Trump spoke about Bloomberg with reporters Friday at the White House.

“He became just a nothing. He was really a nothing. He’s not going to do well but I think he’s going to hurt Biden actually,” Trump said of Bloomberg. “There’s nobody I’d rather run against than little Michael.”

“He doesn’t have the magic to do well,” Trump said. “Little Michael will fail,” he added, but only after spending a lot of money.

If he did do well in the primaries, “I’d be happy,” Trump said, adding. “There’s nobody I’d rather run against than little Michael.”

Meantime, Hillary Clinton Wednesday also refused to rule out getting in. I think she might.

Bloomberg Seriously Considering Independent Bid

Bloomberg: Obama Should Play Golf Every Weekend!

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Sunday dismissed criticism of President Obama’s frequent golf outings, saying he should instead step up the practice. “They criticize him for going and playing golf with people who he’s gotta deal with,” Bloomberg said. “He should be doing that every weekend. You always can work better with somebody that… Continue Reading
