  • Dumped amid coronavirus, former Bloomberg campaign aides sue for pay and benefits

    Former organizers for Michael Bloomberg’s unsuccessful presidential bid sued the billionaire’s campaign on Monday, saying he laid them off amid the global coronavirus pandemic after promising pay and benefits through the November election. Employees resigned from good jobs to take positions with Bloomberg’s campaign, and they now face unemployment and the loss of their health insurance in the midst of the spreading virus, field organizers Alexis Sklair, Sterling Rettke and Nathaniel Brown said in their complaint, one of two proposed class action lawsuits potentially representing thousands of workers. “They promised salaries nearly double that of other campaigns,” alleged their complaint,...

    “Most people knew this was a grift,” one campaign official noted, according to Klippenstein’s report. “At our first office meeting, my [director] said, ‘We don’t need to canvass. We can just make calls, right guys?’ And everyone was like, ‘Yeah, that’s sensible.’” . . . The person added: “It was easy enough to fudge the data to make it look like real people put in real volunteer work, when in reality Mike was getting nothing out of it.”

    President Trump ridiculed him on Twitter. 'The biggest loser tonight, by far, is Mini Mike Bloomberg. His “political” consultants took him for a ride. $700 million washed down the drain, and he got nothing for it but the nickname Mini Mike, and the complete destruction of his reputation. Way to go Mike!' Bloomberg's staff departed on two coach buses. Left behind were hundreds of pages of blank volunteer forms containing get-out-the-vote efforts in upcoming states. . . . 'Enthusiasm they don't lack,' he said of supporters who cheered him in a convention center, having snapped up free wine, beer, and...

  • Bombshell dossier claims Mike Bloomberg abused employee who now features in his campaign, called another woman 'dog face' and failed to sack editor who gave employees MASSAGES

    UK Daily Mail ^ | March 2, 2020 | Lauren Edmonds
    Employees at Bloomberg LP allege that Mike Bloomberg allowed a toxic work culture where he called a woman 'dog face', allowed an editor to continual give female staffers massages and is now championing the woman he allegedly called 'fat' in his presidential candidate campaign. Those who spoke out against the alleged workplace abuse were repeatedly ignored. Bloomberg's presidential dreams appeared to hit a very abrupt snag during the Nevada Democratic Debate when Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused him of allowing discrimination and sexual behavior at his 1981 company. He vehemently denied it, saying: 'I have no tolerance for the kind of...
  • Mike Bloomberg Claims ‘100 Americans’ Killed by Guns Every Day

    Breitbart.com ^ | 2/23/2020 | AWR Hawkins
    Democrat presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg claimed on Sunday that “100 Americans” are “killed by guns” every day. Bloomberg made the claim in a tweet, writing, “100 Americans were killed by guns yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that.” Bloomberg’s claim swells gun violence deaths by 66 percent by lumping together suicides and homicides, then reporting in a way that leads readers to think it is all gun violence. Although inaccurate, Bloomberg’s claim is in line with what numerous Democrats running for president have said, including Hillary Clinton in 2016. On April 11, 2016, Breitbart News reported...

    If Bloomberg has any chance of winning the nomination, he has to redirect his resources during the primary and run ads against Sanders -- not Trump. Bloomberg needs to use the next $400 million in ad spending to attack Sanders on his potential weaknesses in a general election and highlight how far left his campaign is.

    Social media platform Twitter said on Friday it was suspending 70 accounts of supporters of billionaire Democrat presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg’s for “spam-like” behavior. The suspension came days after the Wall Street Journal revealed that Bloomberg had hired 500 people to regularly post messages on social media supporting him. Mike Bloomberg also said Friday he would release three women from confidentiality agreements that bar them from speaking about sexual harassment or discrimination lawsuits filed against them. …

    It’s been said that once a man makes bishop in the church or general in the army he never again eats a bad meal — nor will he ever be contradicted to his face. This probably goes for billionaires, too — because if there was one crystal-clear takeaway from Wednesday’s debate, it’s that nobody’s been giving Mike Bloomberg any guff for a very long time. He got a face-full in Vegas; he was startled by it, he was irritated by it, he didn’t handle it well — and now the questions are: Can he recover a credible debate form? Did...

    I told you that Bloomberg’s strategy all along was 3rd Party candidacy. But he had to start Democrat because that's his base. Last night they played right into his strategy. He's got great publicity of how the nut cases pushed him out of the party. It'll force a runoff, a two party race.

    Michael Bloomberg shrugged off his ghastly debate performance with his campaign vowing he's just 'warming up' after the former mayor was universally panned for his stage debut. 'You know you are a winner when you are drawing attacks from all the candidates. Everyone came to destroy Mike tonight. It didn’t happen,' Bloomberg's campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said in a statement after the debate. 'He was just warming up tonight,' Sheekey added. The general consensus was Bloomberg bombed in Wednesday night's debate, his first time appearing with his rivals for the Democratic nomination.

    The Democratic presidential debate Wednesday night kicked off with fireworks, as every person on stage not named Mike Bloomberg attacking the former New York City mayor, who was participating in his first presidential face off. The first hit at the NBC/MSNBC two-hour debate here came from frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who ripped Bloomberg for his record as mayor. Next to swing at Bloomberg was Elizabeth Warren, who took aim at the mayor's past critical statements about women. "I'd like to talk about who we're running against. A billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians,' and, no, I'm not talking...

    NEW YORK — As Republican President Donald Trump seeks a second term in November, Americans' interest in voting is growing faster in large cities dominated by Democrats than in conservative rural areas, according to an analysis of Reuters/Ipsos national opinion polls. If the trend lasts until Election Day on Nov. 3, it would be a reversal from the 2016 election when rural turnout outpaced voting in urban areas, helping Trump narrowly win the White House. The finding, based on responses from more than 88,000 U.S. adults who took the online poll from August to December 2015 or from August to...

    New video has surfaced of Mike Bloomberg explaining the time he told Donald Trump he loves him as the former New York City mayor continues to face scrutiny for his past friendship with the president. Bloomberg was engaging in a conversation with a crowd at the University of Oxford’s Saďd Business School as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series in December 2016 — almost a month to the day after Trump was elected. He noted his previous close relationship to the then-president-elect and even mentioned that he once told Trump, “Yes, Donald, I do love you.” The billionaire explained that...

    There is nothing small about Mini-Mike’s ego. As the billionaire oligarch continues his attempt at a leveraged buyout of the Democrat Party and its presidential nomination, there is no bigger factor getting in his way than his own unbearable arrogance. Let’s go through the highlights of what we have heard from the former Mayor of New York City in just the past week: Stop and Frisk – A week ago today, video leaked of a 2015 speech in which Bloomberg, then 3 years removed from his final day as Mayor, bragged to an audience in the starkest, and most racist...

    NEW YORK - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday outlined a sweeping financial services policy proposal to rein in Wall Street trading, boost consumer protections, increase Americans’ access to banking services, and crack down on financial crime. The left-leaning platform marks a striking turnaround for the former Republican New York mayor who made his $60 billion fortune in financial services and who in the past has criticized reforms introduced following the 2007-2009 financial crisis. Among the most eye-catching proposals is a tax of 0.1% on transactions in stocks, bonds and payments on derivative contracts, bolstering the “Volcker Rule”...
