Mike Bloomberg ended his quest for the Democrat presidential nomination yesterday. He found that his “Super Tuesday Strategy” didn’t work and that his ubiquitous ads were not enough to convince primary voters to support him.
Even his promise to eat at a Chinese restaurant to push back on the fears about coronavirus wasn’t enough. And no, that last bit wasn’t from The Onion or Babylonbee. It was real though the story about paid mourners crying over him leaving the race was satire.
As it was, Bloomberg only won American Samoa. The big winner on Tuesday was “Slow Joe” Biden followed closely by Bernie Sanders. Between them, they split the majority of the delegates up for grabs.
Perhaps the best comment on Bloomberg’s huge expenditures for his campaign came from Kyle Kashuv on Twitter.
Trump got Bloomberg to infuse 700 million into the economy..— Kyle Kashuv (@KyleKashuv) March 4, 2020
Bloomberg has now endorsed Joe Biden. I think it will be reasonable to expect to see Bloomberg’s Independence USA PAC plus the Everytown Action Fund spending heavily in support of Biden and other Democrats throughout the rest of the election cycle.
The bottom line is that Bloomberg and his money will continue to remain a threat to our freedoms and our rights.
So to end, here is a little Beatles to brighten up your Thursday.
