Mike Bloomberg is preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary

Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York, is preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary, according to NBC News, which cited a Bloomberg advisor.

The move didn’t necessarily mean Bloomberg was announcing a campaign, a source close to Bloomberg told NBC News. Rather, this source said, he’s doing this to keep his options open. Bloomberg is “troubled” by what he has seen in the Democratic primary, the source added.

“He’s still not sure,” a source told CNBC. This source also said these are “unprecedented times” and that Bloomberg is concerned about what he’s seeing both from Democrats and President Donald Trump.

The New York Times reported Thursday, citing people briefed on the plans, that Bloomberg was working on entering at least one Democratic presidential primary and potential the overall race for the chance to take on Trump in 2020.

So pretty much every leftwing Nazi is bellying up to the bar now. It’s like a national One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest.

The first deadline to enter the democrat state primary is tomorrow.

I don’t think either Bloomberg or Hillary have done the home work.

They might try to get a floor nomination at the convention, but unless we hear something tomorrow, which I doubt, I think they are both out of the primaries.

[On January 31, 2014, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed Bloomberg as his first Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change to help the United Nations work with cities to prevent climate change.[209] In September 2014, Bloomberg convened with Ban and global leaders at the UN Climate Summit to announce definite actions to fight climate change in 2015.[210] Noting in March 2018 that “climate change is running faster than we are,” Ban’s successor António Guterres appointed Bloomberg as UN envoy for climate action.[211][212]

In late 2014, Bloomberg, Ban Ki-moon, and global city networks ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), with support from UN-Habitat, launched the Compact of Mayors, a global coalition of mayors and city officials pledging to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions, enhance resilience to climate change, and track their progress transparently.]

How global of him.

Come on down, Mikey. The Swamp Water is nice and gooey.
Maybe you can convince Uncle Joe to step aside and give you his little spot on the stage.

"Is he going to buy his way in like Tom Steyer?"

He bought Virginia this week. Nanny Bloomberg will run on his gun (and large soda) grabbing platform.

Just what the Democrats don’t really need - a Blooming Turd running for the presidency on an anti-gun platform. Say goodbye to the Heartland of America, hunters, law enforcement people, people who want to be able to defend their homes, target shooters, the elderly who can only protect themselves with a weapon, home invasion targets, etc.

Singing “We don’t need another Bloomturd, we don’t need another ahole”.
