Michael Bloomberg to air $5 million in ads before midterm elections to tout Democrats and himself
Washington Post ^ | November 4, 2018 | Robert Costa

Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City who is considering a 2020 presidential campaign, took another step closer to that possibility Sunday with a $5 million national advertising effort that encourages voters to support Democrats in Tuesday’s midterm elections — and offers Bloomberg’s centrist politics as a counter to President Trump. Bloomberg’s two-minute television ad, which features him speaking directly to the camera and standing before an American flag, first aired Sunday during CBS’s “60 Minutes.” It will air again Monday during the evening news programs on broadcast networks and on MSNBC and CNN. Bloomberg, 76, portrays himself in the spot as a steady and seasoned Washington outsider (hint: presidential) who is appalled by Trump’s conduct and agenda and alarmed by episodes of political violence and Trump’s mounting attacks on the caravan of Central American migrants.

I heard one of his commercials this morning. BORING! Bloomberg really doesn’t know how to be human. These may hurt more than they help.

Bloomberg wants to run for president in 2020 these commercials and various donations that he has made this election cycle are an attempt to pocket support for himself.

I stopped at “Bloomberg” and “Centrist”. LOL!

Those two words should never be used in the same sentence.

Didn’t he spend a whole lot of money in 2016 to get out the anti-Second-Amendment votes?

Saw his Ad during the last segment of 60 Minutes last night.

Blah, blah, blah, picture of POTUS Trump at a Rally pointing to the crowd, Bloomie says we should be extending an open hand, not pointing fingers. LOL

Last line, I will be Voting Democratic.

Bloomie, a guy who bans Big Gulps for the good of the idiot Masses telling people to Vote for those civilized Rats.

He somehow got past his normal modesty and let loose with yet another “look at me” ploy.

If some voters are stupid enough to like him, they deserve him. Not us.

“offers Bloomberg’s centrist politics as a counter to President Trump...”

Funny stuff. The Amazon CIA Nazis at the execrable Washington Post are simpletons. The CIA bureaucrats fall easy for honeytraps. I’ve seen it. Here’s the formula:

1. Find one mama-san.

2. Order copious amounts of booze and drugs.

3. Add two or three giggling bar girls.

Result: CIA moron returns to states happy, but with four or five unknown strains of virulent VD.

Only in the Jeff Bezos blog, the Washington compost, is a guy who wants to ban guns and control people’s lives so much that he dictates how much soda they may drink at one time, considered a centrist. I guess that Vladimir Lenin was just slightly left-of-center to these idiots.

Phuck him, Bezos and everyone at the Compost.

I think most people just hit the mute button when bombarded with this.

At least Bloomberg had courage to stand up in the ads he paid for. Unlike sorros, the big coward is hidden behind being hidden.
