MSNBC anchor Ari Melber called out the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as well as its chairman Tom Perez for changing its debate rules that could pave the way for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to land a spot on the debate stage.
The DNC sparked controversy last month after it announced that it would no longer require its candidates to meet a donor threshold, which along with polling benchmarks were required for 2020 Democrats to meet in order to have a podium. But since Bloomberg has been self-funding his campaign, he was considered ineligible to participate despite his rise in the polls- that is until the DNC changed the rules.
After pointing out Perez's explanation of the donor rule last year, which was to empower "grassroots" movements for more unknown candidates, and his defense of the debate rules after they were criticized by former 2020 candidate Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J, Melber asked his viewers if it's "fair" for the DNC to change the rules "in the middle of the game."

“Fair” is irrelevant to them, in every way. They want power, and everything they say and do is acceptable towards that end. Period.
Idiot parade continues.
Bernie derangement syndrome
They always love to change the rules after the start of the game.
Bloomberg needs 15% to get delegates watch for how many states he gets 15. He probably comes up (ahem) short in many places
The smell of farts, stale cabbage and urine is seeping into this primary.
Rules are for honorable, civilized people—they have left the Democratic Party long ago....
Please step back. Bloomberg is BUYIN' his way in.
Come on man what’s “fair” in politics. Or life.
Who the hell cares what they do.
Cause they’re gonna do it anyway and pick whomever.
And Trump will beat whomever they pick.
Bloomberg is gonna shake that stop and frisk comment? Or that minority mortgages comment?
Trump will bury him with those two alone.
Low black and bernie followers vote means a sunken dem ship.
How can it be unfair? Bloomberg has the money!
I would be happy for the SocDems to ring in Bloomie and run with him. Neither he nor Butt?*\g can get much support from the Negro community while DJT is getting ever rising support therefrom. Biden is the only SocDem left shuffling along who has any cachet with the Negro voters and that is slipping from him pretty seriously. I would love to think that this is the election wherein the masters push their political slaves inadvertently off the plantation.
OF COURSE ITS NOT FAIR. WHAT ELSE CAN PEREZ DO BUT TO PUSH FOR BLOOMERS TO TAKE THE LEAD. ALL THE OTHER CANDIDATES ARE WEIRDOS COUPLED WITH PEREZ THE WHOLE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS A DISASTER LED BY PEREZ AND FUNDED BY SOROS. THEY EVEN HAVE MITT HELPING THEM AS ORDERED BY SOROS. MITT DOESN’T MAKE A MOVE WITHOUT CHECKING WITH SOROS.
You’re asking for fairness? Suck it up, Melber, you know the DNC is a RICO operation.
