Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Sat Feb 15, 2020, 07:21 PM

 

Trevor Noah explains eloquently why Bloomberg doesn't get it.




If Bloomberg wins this nomination, I'm going to have to drink a LOT of Glenlivet before I have to vote for him.

And when you finish this, look for the Twitter threads about the horribly sexist things he has said.

We can do better than to nominate this guy, Dems.

1. Any functioning adult 2020

 

Any and all Democratic nominees get my vote! All of them. The #1 mission is to defeat Trump.

8. That's kind of a low standard.

 

Lots of people are a billion times better than trump.

Mitt Romney is better than Trump but I ain't gonna vote for him if he switches parties.

If Bloomberg gets the nomination I'll have to hold my nose.

3. Thats how I feel about Sanders

 

but we vote Blue anyway. I have comfort in knowing that Bloomberg would crush Trump with unlimited funds. I voted for Mike today along with 6 buddies. We wanna beat Trump

5. Hopefully

 

Bloomberg will contribute a few billion even if he loses the nomination. Then we wouldnít have to worry about Trump outspending our nominee.

4. I'm with you on having to drink to support him

 

He's an amazing philanthropist. I am most worried about the policies he enacted that had a negative impact on people's lives. Will he govern as president the way he governed as mayor? Its not just stop and frisk. His policies often had a negative impact on the poor and working class. I have heard people say, oh, he will be checked by democrats if he tries to enact undemocratic policies. Well, the republicans thought they could control Trump too.....

Oh and then there was the push to get rid of term limits so he could stay on as mayor for a 3rd term. Those things leave a bad taste in my mouth.

10. Yep

 

I think a lot of his philanthropy is engineered to co-opt potential opposition:



The degree to which Michael Bloomberg is using his fortune to fundamentally alter & manipulate U.S. politics to his personal advantage extends way beyond ads. I've worked against him, covered him as a journalist & worked with his top aides. Hereís their playbook: (1/17)

15. He'll never be able to flip the Senate - turnout will be low, guaranteed. He is too divisive.

16. If Bloomberg wants to spend to defeat Trump,

 

that's ok with me. He can afford it. But that does not mean I will feel obligated or so grateful that I would vote to make him our nominee.

I will not vote for him in the primary.

If he does get the nomination, I would vote for him only on the basis that he would be marginally better than Trump. And then I would watch him closely.

17. "We can do better than to nominate this guy, Dems."

 

Yeah? Well, honestly, we should be able to do better than anyone currently in the running, but this is what we have to work with. It's absurd that the entire Democratic party can't put forth a better candidate. Warren is my first choice, but I'm not a fool, and I can see the downward spiral clearly.

Can someone name another candidate who's as well-organized as Bloomberg?

Or who gets under fuckhead Trump's orange hide the way Bloomberg does?

Honestly, Bloomberg is my last choice out of the current field of candidates, but his ads and therefore his message has a better reach than all of the other contenders combined.

I will absolutely vote for whoever winds up on our ticket, but it would be a wonderful, refreshing change if any of our candidates were actually worth getting excited about--and that includes Sanders, before any of his supporters reiterate their belief that he's the obvious and inevitable perfect candidate.

18. Thanks for sharing this

 

I've seen the link before but finally had a chance to watch it.

I implore people who don't quite get why some of us are raging about Bloomberg to please, please, please watch this video. And please notice that there are supporters of all the Dem candidates expressing vehement concerns about Bloomberg.

I've never really watched more than a few minutes of Trevor Noah before but he just lays it out so clearly here.
