    Shill comes out to play 😂

  3. After giving New York to the super-rich and then creating the Worse Homeless Crisis Since the Great Depression, Michael Bloomberg now wants to be the President of the United States.

    Bloomberg served as Mayor of New York City, holding office for three consecutive terms, beginning his first in 2001 and ending December 3, 2013

    Over the next decade, NYC city planners rezone large swaths of the city, adding density in mostly working-class communities of color while limiting density in many already wealthy white communities of the city. This leads to a pattern of tenant harassment and displacement in working-class communities of color to make way for large-scale luxury development.

    • @Meg Sure, I like anyone that doesn’t fall back on emotions as their modus operandi. Call that mundane, but I call it a representation of someone with a functioning frontal cortex =)

      At this point I’ll take anything that isn’t as braindead as socialism.

    • @Meg battle of the thesaurus saurus rex..😁

    • Ya gotta feel to have emotions. The best sociopaths feel nothing at all… Sociopathy is the actual antipathy of sociability. I bet you HATE Socialism… the idea of people working together rather than the strongest nailing the weakest. Beasts abide by Survival of the Fittest. Man should strive for better than exploitation. Is Bernie too scary for you Mulinaster? Too compassionate perhaps? What you gonna do with all the homeless people? problem with neoliberalism is the people at the bottom dont disappear when you disenfranchise them.. they end up under the bridges, in the parks, on the sidewalks – by the thousands, and increasing yearly. Bernie has been talking about the problem for decades. LISTEN UP! times a’wastin’, no more time for GREED is GOOD and Ayn Randian coldness. Better learn to love cooperation, because oh, by the way? planet melting down, climate emergency real, and infinite growth capitalism Bloomberg-style coming to an end, either by societal collapse, or ecological collapse (which would of course, lead to societal collapse).

    • sal – RAWR….. beware THE MEG.

    • ​@Meg Bravery is not the absence of fear, but the ability to confront when faced with fear. Much the same, emotions are to be controlled, not expounded or to become dependent on as one’s modus operandi. That is wholly different from sociopathy or psychopathy.

      Working together is best accomplished by acknowledging the natural human inclination to be selfish in terms of self-preservation, DNA transmission, and self-actualization. Not acknowledging that in policy and practice is a recipe for disaster to both the individual and the group because it relies on false hope without grounding in fact and reality.

      “Beasts abide by Survival of the Fittest.”

      As is quite common, you completely misunderstand objectivism and Rand while uttering her name in ignorance. It is not “survival of the fittest” that we abide in any physical form nor even “might makes right,” but “survival by mental productivity” and the creation of, living of, and abiding by objective value in every circumstance. Any act that devalues mental productivity and the responsibility of the individual to do precisely what is required to create their own sustenance and success in life is to deny the epitome of Maslowe’s hierarchy in self-actualization.

      And yes, greed is QUITE good. It is the natural inclination of anyone with a nucleus accumbens. Burying your head in the sand doesn’t make it go away =)

  4. If Bloomberg is ‘ignoring’ the early primary states and ‘ignoring’ the debates…..Why shouldn’t he, himself, be ignored?

  5. ‘Stop and Frisk’ just 1 of many of Bloomberg’s bags he’s tied down by.

  6. Billionaires crying about disadvantages. What about the disadvantage of being a victim of stop and frisk?

    • @Mighty Mouse you have the strictest gun laws in Pennsylvania. Just like NYC they do nothing to stop it. Chicago too.

    • @sal been I know. Id sign up for stop and frisk or at least have some sort of police presence in neighborhoods. Only time i see a cop is when someone gets shot

    • @Mighty Mouse that sucks

    • @sal been it does. It equally sucks when candidates discuss gun violence that is directed to suburban mass shootings. Completely dismissing the majority of gun violence that is crimes of handguns and in the hood. Appearing they give a dam about PoC while not addressing the core of the issue

    • @Mighty Mouse you’re rite

  7. “I’m Michael Bloomberg and I approve this message.”
    Seriously though, the reason Bloomberg is getting hate is because at 1 year out from the election, we need to start narrowing the field of candidates, not adding to it.

  8. It doesn’t matter anyways, he won’t get the ticket.

  9. Enough already with Billionaires and out of touch with reality TV presidents..🤦‍♂️🤒🤷‍♀️

    • 🤤🍷🍾😉Perhaps like with almost 3 million votes counted against him and cheap Russian sponsored whiskey and treasonous asshats alike yourself lmfao to back him up .😳🤷‍♀️🤣


    • Well we can’t have people like you being a president cuz you have no clue what’s going on

    • Yeah, until you’re the billionaire

    • 🐾💦🔍😉👌Well💬 all that matters NOW, ARE LMFAO that there’s a WH-Mole running our country LIKE A DICTATOR and wrecking HAVOC by leaving a trail of CREEPY CRITTER slime behind like a snail that leads backwards to find himself ..🤗🤘🙄☝️🤣FOH


    • 🎪👐🍔🤷‍♀️🤗😉👌Only in Umerica lol does any poorly edumacated peasants, reserves their indoctrinated rights towards reselecting the same creepy systematic #Elites- Whom bites off the very hands whom feeds them.😂🥂🤣Cheers💬


  10. Why the hostility? Stop and Frisk for one.

    • Stop and Frisk worked

      @Joseph if you do your research crime dropped after they ended stop and frisk. Obviously the racist program didn’t affect you smh

    • @Michele Foster , More talking points spun by the Bias media and Demo☭rat’s, to protect the Illegal Invaders and Criminals that HATE Our America.

      @Joseph ok stupid. They we’re targeting black and brown people who were born here. It had nothing to do with immigration jerk off and unless you’re native American you’re welcome to go to your ancestors country.

  11. Multimillionaire endorses a billionaire for president. Wow, what a shock.

  12. Stop and frisk guy trying to buy the election

  13. STOP AND FRISK and him running as Republican,Independent and democrat may have something to do it???

  14. Bloomberg’s record speaks for itself and New Yorkers know it …

    How much did he pay for this ad?

  16. CNN trying to dictate Biden or Bloomberg nominee bid!!!! What a joke

  17. Michael Smerconish could write this segment off as a contribution to the Bloomberg campaign.

    Maybe he can get Ambassadorship to the EU out of it.

  18. The police were out in force protesting Bloomberg. He failed N.Y. and will fail 🇺🇸 U.S

  19. This guy on cnn always give props to”head board dems”
