Mike Bloomberg probably isn't going to win the Democratic nomination for president. But he might beat Donald Trump anyway.

Trump Is Suddenly Scared of Mike Bloomberg

He should be. Mini Mike can beat White Wizard of Orange Smoke and Mirrors hands down and with 90% of his brain tied behind his back.

Mike Bloomberg probably isn't going to win the Democratic nomination for president.

Of course, not. Why would Dems nominate someone who can easily win when they can nominate someone who tells them what they want to hear? Someone who can "save the world by declaring emergency on Day 1" or "forgive all the debt by certain 'mistreated' groups" or "expand coverage to everyone paid for by higher taxes on the rich and corporations" and that "the only evil and all the wars in the world come from America."

Maybe you can beat nonsense with more nonsense - after all, we see Trump in the White House - but it doesn't happen often and never from "those whose time has come" because they've been at it and are "known" quantities.

There are three legitimate billionaires who have spent Fortunes filling the airwaves and the internet with commercial pounding on Trump.

Just as I predicted a few weeks ago. I could tell by his political ads, Bloomberg doesn't want to be president. He just wants to use his $$Billions$$ help the Democrat Party beat the pants off the orange scourge who has high hopes of becoming a Putin-styled dictator.

I think that's the true motive behind Trump's fear of Bloomberg.

Trump can't outspend him.

Bloomberg was a lousy mayor. He doesn't seem to be much of a character. He is as dull and flat as a coat of paint. He is rich, has an enormous ego, possibly a messiah complex, and is a complete control freak. I doubt Trump is worried about him at all. He does not pole at all, after his media blitz has been going on for more than a month.

DOC: wrong. Bloomberg is considered one of the greatest mayors in the history of New York City. He ran the city in a nonpartisan manner, got squabbles resolved, reduced crime (yes, his methods brought significant objections too) and acted in a professional manner at all times.

As for his fortune, I type this note on a Bloomberg keyboard. Want access to the financial markets world-wide, and the data that drives those markets? Pay Mr. Bloomberg...

I know little about Bloomberg.

He's not well known outside of the Northeast, I suspect so he wouldn't have a chance in an election, regardless of how much money he has to spend.

"He just wants to use his $$Billions$$ help the Democrat Party beat the pants off the orange scourge who has high hopes of becoming a Putin-styled dictator."

Why? The majority of wall street types are supportive of Trump, right? I understand if Bloomberg doesn't like him but business is business...and Trump is good for business.

IOW, I can believe Bloomberg can't stand him but I can't believe he would want Sanders as president.

Bloomberg Is a Climate Leader. So Why Aren't Activists Excited About a Run for President?

Michael Bloomberg has poured his time and hundreds of millions of dollars into projects aimed at getting the world 'beyond carbon,' but can he win the presidency?

Trump isn't good for the climate, and that is one of Bloomberg's major concerns:

Trump doesn't worry about having to run against Mike Bloomberg. He fears having to run against Mike Bloomberg's money, in support of whichever Democratic candidate makes it onto the ticket.
