With Hillary Clinton mired in her email and other troubles, Rupert Murdoch is trying to start a “Draft Bloomberg” movement.
Now enter a man who knows a thing or two of drumming up attention (and selling papers) – Rupert Murdoch. Just as massive stock drop has many investors eyeing the financial headlines, the media mogul is stirring the pot, trying to draft fellow billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg into the presidential race.
Murdoch wrote in a tweet last night, “with Trump becoming very serious candidate, it’s time for next billionaire candidate, Mike Bloomberg to step into ring. Greatest mayor.”
Yahoo News has the story in this video below. They discuss how Trump has upended things and perhaps set the stage for a Michael Bloomberg.
The very thought of having, in Michael Bane’s words, that nasty little fascist as the President of the United States is repugnant. It is not just what he would do to the Second Amendment that scares me but his entire “I know what’s best for you” agenda. If you combine Bloomberg’s authoritarian impulses with what Barack Obama has done to to the Executive Branch, I could see myself moving to a freer country. You know, like China or Russia. They couldn’t be as bad as living in a country where Mike Bloomberg controlled the reins of government.
