  1. Ari, I watch almost all network news commentary with a suspicious eye for how it’s protecting the economic status quo, but you are a true advocate for social justice and a friend to the people. Respect!

  2. Speaking of defending your policies, how’s that separating families and putting kids in cages going these days? 🤔

  3. Mr. Sheekey, you and your boss need to read the 4th amendment I’ll leave it below…
    “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

  5. THIS IS JOURNALISM! Facts over party. Go Ari!

      @Damain Gregory like what u overlook sanders weaknesses

    • PandoraBVV I agree with you! Youtube clips are usually condensed with dramatized titles to attract viewership. It leaves room for quotes from speeches, conversations, etc. to be taken out of context. Can’t argue there. Definitely don’t think news should just come from one source like youtube anyway. At least not if you want a broader perspective on the issues. I was only commenting on the bit that I saw which I found to be straightforward: A journalist asking tough questions.

    • Damain Gregory Didn’t think of it like that! Could definitely be the case.

  6. So hes saying its necessary to win 1 of the first 2 primaries, yet hos campaign isnt even running in those primaries?! What?!

      💀😂😂😂😂😂 you know they planning on trying to buy the election or maybe Mike Bloomberg just wants to have billionaire beef with adds to humiliate Trump!! Maybe just bored

      Bloomberg is independent. He doesn’t need the primary of any party to enter the general election. Everyone else is a career politician who depends on donations and sponsors.

    • Future Society Of Gentlemen no he is running as a democratic. He doesn’t need the primary on any party because he’s trying to buy his election. It’s not going to work.

    • Positive Pumpkin | February 6, 2020 at 10:32 PM | Reply

      It’s an open secret that Bloomberg’s only running as a spoiler.

    • Future Society Of Gentlemen | February 6, 2020 at 10:34 PM | Reply

      @Miguel Ruiz duh, he’s running as a democrat, but he is not beholden to them. It’s all for show. Research his political history. He’s attempting to do the same as Trump, who is not financially dependent upon Republicans, but needs their organization to collect votes.

  7. Really good interview Ari . Good job. Your not afraid to ask follow up questions. That’s rare now a days.

      Ask bernie sanders the question on how he is going to change the narrative set by trump that the economy under trump admins is good

  8. Homeless only grew with Mike by increasing the rent mercilessly.

    • That was Guliani, I was there

      If someone can’t afford to live in New York City it’s not the city’s job to artificially suppress housing prices. It’s the individuals job to move somewhere they can afford.
      Living in New York City is an expense, not a right.

  9. Ari you are the man! I like how you hold Bloomberg feet to the fire, he is a tyrant and if he gets the ultimate office of power, we will have a dictator that is worse than Agent Orange!

  10. This guy wants to keep changing the subject and clearly does not want to get to the root of the matter. Bloomberg will never get the black vote no matter what he says that’s ship has sailed. Someone shows you who they are believe them.

  11. Great interview!

    No matter how much money this guy has I personally wouldn’t vote for him, seems too much like a rich elite trump lite

    Bloomberg is going to drop out the race pretty soon, In back up who ever gets Nominated at the end, So maybe he’s trying too right some of his wrong unlike Don, And Don wants to bring stop and frisk back! 🤔

    1 time you got it wrong, but 60-70 times, is systemic racism!!!

    Come on white people none of us gets stopped more then 2-3 times usually for speeding, let’s be real!!!!!

    • I have never gotten stopped. I once accidentally sped in front of a cop, and I still didn’t get stopped. Nobody is going to vote for Bloomberg. Especially if THIS is his manager.

    • Lol I remember when I got stop on Los Gatos California , driving my wife car , my friend Mexican native didn’t help🧍🏾‍♂️😂, and her car was registered under her Lawrence last name and I almost got arrested for theft ; thank god she was able to get there and prove her identity other wise I will have another spot in my life in this country; my father in law just got stopped recently I showed up to move his car and the officer even apologized to my blue eye old man 😇 , I am not complaining just wanted to share my experience

      AOC YEAH YOU KNOW ME 2 I truly just ignore MB… his adds attacking Trump are funny but I just feel like the mf is bored

      Thank you for being honest, As a Black mother, A police stop is terrifying and people dismiss us living this way when it doesn’t happen to them.

  14. Bloomberg’s Campaign Manager: “If you don’t win Iowa or New Hampshire you’re toast.”
    I hope you’re right buddy

  15. Blumberg yuck… and this guy makes my skin crawl.

  16. i googled smugness. this video came up.

  17. I forgot all this about Bloomberg … thanks ari for reminding us

  18. YouWhoKnowKnewNot | February 6, 2020 at 9:48 PM | Reply

    Ari came with receipts today!!!! 😳


  19. WOW. I grew up in NYC during those years and I DO NOT remember hearing Mike Bloomberg say that about stopping whites too much. I’m disgusted by him now. Wow.

  20. Another Billionaire wants to buy the election?? Time for the working people of the nation to take control of the way the government operates. Bernie Sanders is the only choice.
