Actually, if you listen to Trump carefully, he is offering his assist, and you can tell that he wants Bernie. He is attacking Bloomberg heavily all while claiming the DNC is railroading Bernie again. He is telegraphing what he really wants.

Bloomberg may have a LOT of flaws, but he is not a democratic socialist. Trump knows this, and he is also intimately aware how how powerful a propaganda machine the MSM is, even without the kind of money that Bloomberg has. Bloomberg is definitely the bigger threat. They can prop him up both as the savior to all the desperate democrats, but as the moderate to all the independents.

What should Operation Chaos do? Stand by or put life back into Biden?

So nice to see the Lilliputians attacking Bloomberg.

Bloomberg has many huge problems in the General Election, though. Not only is the DNC exposing every one of his bigoted comments from the recent past, and not only are there multiple scandals from his time as Mayor of NYC (that the NYTimes was happy to splash on the front pages, since Bloomberg was a Republican), but the Left will also have a huge problem in convincing the less-motivated and mushy middle voters that it is somehow imperative to replace one opinionated rich old white NYC Republican male with another opinionated rich old white NYC Republican male... especially when the current one is doing really really well with the economy.

Then the DNC also has to retain the monolithic black vote, when the potential new clone has some rather racist comments and programs in his past, and the current clone has not only had no actual demonstrations of racism, but is also celebrated in over 120 rap lyrics.

Even the height optics don't work in Bloomberg's favor...

And finally, it could simply be that Bloomberg cannot learn to handle slings and arrows like he got last night. I will assume that his team will be prepping him far better for the future, but President Trump has been dealing with even worse, for decades, and is almost always smiling as he takes it on. Bloomberg may not have time to learn how to "grin and bear it" in just 8.5 months. That would get extremely pronounced and make a very stark contrast in any debates with our President.

“Bloomberg is definitely the bigger threat. They can prop him up both as the savior to all the desperate democrats, but as the moderate to all the independents.”

He’s definitely the sanest one in that asylum, that’s why he looked so out of place there. Unfortunately for him he joined the party full of lunatics who would rather stay home than vote for him.
