Bloomberg for President

I'm starting to wonder if he's "the guy."  Although I think Biden's baggage (Burisma, etc.) is bullshit, Bloomberg seems to be the perfect counter to tRump right now.   I'm torn...

    I do too...he's articulate.  Biden can be as well but the GOP has had time to beat him up and damage him just like they did to Hillary.  Bloomberg is fresh.

    Are there any videos of a creepy Bloomberg?  If not, he is already way better than Biden!

    But seriously, I get the concern about yet another billionaire.  But for christs sake, just about every candidate is a millionaire anyhow.

    Isn’t Bloomberg behind some nanny-state stuff in NYC...like limited soda portion sales?  I think he’ll be open to socialism attacks (then again that’s gonna be the primary tactic regardless).

    Now we are fucking talking.  I have been saying this for months...anyone who is interviewed needs to hammer tRump on these vanity items.  It will drive him fucking insane.  EVERY FUCKING DAY.

    “The president is lying,” Bloomberg’s statement said. “He a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”

    He went low too, though (per Mrs. Obama in the article). I’d think more of him had he just laughed off the stupid comment.

    I'm done with that.  The only way to convert tRump voters is for them to be humilated at supporting him.  The way to do that is to humiliate him.  Fuck him.

    That's one of the things I like about Yang.  You don't hear him talking trash about other candidates.  Even with Trump.  I'm sure Yang dislikes him as much as many of the rest of us.  But when Yang talks, he talks about what he want to get done and doesn't waste our time trash talking about other people.   Unfortunately,  Americans seem to only like candidates that spend campaign time berating the other candidates.

    I agree that too many people like tRump for my comfort.  But you fight fire with fire.  

    The only issue is getting tRump out of the WH.  Nothing else matters.  Talking about healthcare and minimum basic income won't get us anywhere until he's gone.

    I don't have a problem with it as long as it is the truth.  Calling tRump a fucking liar with fake hair, fake wife, fake weight, fake teeth, etc. is all true.

    Well, yes and no.  Yang vs. Trump would not be fighting fire with fire, it would be fighting stupidity with intelligence.  But maybe America doesn't care two shits about intelligence any more so it may have to be fire against fire.

    In any case, Yang would agree that the #1 priority is to get Trump out.  He said if he isn't nominated he will back the Dem candidate regardless of who it is.  I just happen to think Yang would be a better president than all of the above and I will vote for him in the primaries.  No reason not to. Then in November I will vote for who ever wins the Dem slot. And then I will hope we start doing more- much more- to create a more sound environmental and greater social justice in the world because if we don't, we will all soon be screwed.

    Michael Bloomberg is Donald Trump, just on a different side of the aisle. Vanity, narcissism and the desire to be dictator are far more similar than different between the two.
