It is funny to imagine them uncomfortably cheering on Bloomberg and having to go along with all his weird positions just because they hate Trump so much.
He's straight up buying people. One black activist said he was offered $70k a year salary + health insurance just to be an "adviser" to the campaign. So you can imagine the most unlikely of people who will be championing Bloomberg. It's frankly incredible.

He is a Jewish billionaire who was Republican, is pro police state, pro censorship, pro war, hates blacks, is a total authoritarian, has made it his lifelong mission to the disarm middle class, appears to have no redeeming qualities, is alien and generally unlikable just as a person. He is also an elitist who looks down on farmers.
Yeah. I saw that too.
He also apparently hates women, pregnant women even more.

Pregnant women. "Kill it!"
fokker wrote:Clinton may be able to attract her previous voters + female vote as usual. Bloomberg will not be loved by minorities, but he expects that people will fall in line and vote for him instead of Trump. It makes sense to put a former Republican against Trump, as Bloomberg may be able to get moderate Republicans who would otherwise vote for Trump, who don't like his scandalous behavior, tweets and secret recordings (grabbing women by the pu**y..). Is Bloomberg racist? What about Trump? Is he really better? Bloomberg is at least a better manager. Let's not be naive how kind these rich people are.
Trump has a lot of black friends. Bloomberg? None. However, Bloomberg will buy some black friends, which will be absolutely hilarious to watch. Bloomberg was recorded only two years ago about throwing black kids up against the wall, minorities are 95% of the crime rate, etc. The campaign ads in October are going to rival the Willie Horton ads of 1988. It's going to be epic.

Voters? That remains to be seen. Consultants, media analysts, staffers, etc? He's already spent $400M. It's absolutely comical.

It all depends on how Biden (the Establishment's first ideal choice) does the next few states. And how Sanders does relative to that.
Yeah, the Sanders people are already concerned that they are going to repeat the Nevada theft from 2016.

I hope so, but either way it's going to be highly entertaining.
