Former New York City mayor turned 2020 candidate Mike Bloomberg continues to take heat for his chosen campaign strategies.
There is a bipartisan outlook which asserts that Bloomberg is simply trying to buy his way into winning the nomination of the Democrat Party. Of course, the former mayor hasn’t helped this perception by dumping hundreds of millions of bucks on misinformation ads and avoiding public debates and interviews.
Bloomberg’s chosen method of campaigning has contributed to the perception that he’s sorely lacking in some critical areas; one of those areas just so happens to constitute having a personality. This is a matter that first son Donald Trump Jr. pointed out when making an appearance on The Charlie Kirk Show. Don Jr. also explained that Bloomberg can pay for disinformation ads, but he can’t purchase a personality, as documented by Breitbart News.
A Closer Look at the First Son’s Assessment of Bloomberg
Don Jr. took aim at not only Bloomberg’s misinformation ads, but also his attempts to manufacture an online personality by paying influencers.
In so doing, the first son noted that he’s received direct messages from social media influencers who get offers from the Bloomberg campaign; apparently these influencers don’t want to help the former mayor’s candidacy, but feel hard-pressed not to for financial reasons. In many cases, Don Jr. is asked whether or not the Trump re-election campaign can match what Bloomberg’s camp is offering.
Later on The Charlie Kirk Show, the first son also censured Bloomberg’s attempt to “bypass” the parts of campaigning which involve raising funds. Despite the 2020 Democrat’s hundreds of millions of spent dollars, he still doesn’t have even one lone delegate. Don Jr. then noted that Bloomberg’s current amount of expended capital thus far matches what the Trump campaign spent to win the 2016 election.
The Albatross Dooming the Bloomberg Campaign
As it currently stands, Bloomberg has bigger issues on his hands than a lacking personality and fake news ads. Almost every day now, new comments surface from the 2020 Democrat’s past, comments that don’t really paint him in a favorable light.
First came Bloomberg’s statements on stop-and-frisk and throwing males of color up against walls. Shortly thereafter were past comments asserting that factory workers and farmers aren’t that intelligent or capable of working information technology jobs. As of this morning, even more questionable, prior remarks from the former mayor have surfaced. Apparently, Bloomberg believes that black and Latino males are incapable of proper behavior in workplace environments.
The influencers that Bloomberg is attempting to pay can only do so much for him.
