They are circling each other like wary boxers, with taunts on Twitter, snarky asides and belittling descriptions.

Bloomberg is likely to get under Trump's skin with comments like this one:

Joe Scarborough @JoeNBC

"In Texas, when asked whether the country wanted a race between two New York billionaires, Bloomberg replied, Who's the other one?"

As mayor of New York City, Bloomberg does not have anything to run on. Unless urban decay and nanny government is the objective. Hell, he can not even get the garbage picked up.

Bloomberg has to careful of Trump bringing Russian hackers to a knife fight.

Bloomberg is a legend in his own mind. Doesn't pole at all, yet he spends millions on self aggrandizement. What a joke.

#2 "Urban decay?" NYC is more habitable now than it has ever been in my life, minus the cost which has nothing to do with "decay."

He's spending a FORTUNE in Michigan on Ads. I don't know how much it will help him though.

It's always funny seeing you get called out for posting such idiotic and easily disproven comments.

More like self-made billionaire, media magnate and former mayor of America's largest city collides with fantasy billionaire bankruptcy case who inherited his money from his Klansman daddy, stiffed the government out of millions in tax dollars and is only still a thing thanks to shady loans from Hitler's favorite bank most likely backed by Russian oligarchs.

Exact description and bears repeating.

Of course, Dems don't care about record of actual accomplisments, especially in private sector, unless it has to do with being high on the ladder of government.

BTW, Bloomberg is the only one who holds Dotard to 42% in latest national and battleground states, including Mischigan, and has or ties for the highest spread between DemX vs Trump.

He also doesn't scare people with promises to give away too much "free stuff" (like e.g., "forgive all student debt, without Congress" or "declare global warming state of emergency on day 1") or kill the economy by overtaxing everyone to oblivion (OK, only "the rich" who will find the ways to avoid or pass the taxes, like downstream to consumers and the middle class.)

Maybe he is not popular with some typically Dem groups like AAs, but that's what VPs are for - Kamala Harris or someone else could fill in the blanks.

Or Dems can go with Socialist Senators, Semi-Socialist former VP past his prime living out "Obama legacy" (Obama was stuck in low 40's approval for most of his terms, too) and Mayor Babyface qho will be digitally eaten alive and if "the best ever economy" faux meme holds on till November, will make them easier to beat than Hillary in EC.

Because elections are always relative to the "other guy" - lately it's usually a choice of who is "worse" to vote against.

Bloomberg would also drive Trump completely nuts because he would be oldest ever elected, richest (and many times over richer than Trump), self-made instead of pretending being so ("One million dollars loan from my dad"), Jewish, still from New York, and may keep his business legally in some form of escrow after elections.

I just noticed that Bloomberg is polling 4th nationally.

Anything else stupid you would like to add?

Sorry!

I am trying not to be mean to the stupid deplorables that got us into this mess.

Damn that is hard!

It might take a billionaire to beat a billionaire.

We are in uncharted territories. Once again.

But, we always did like to be first to get there. And we always come out the other side.

Semper Fi
