Bloomberg appears to be imitating President
The former mayor is spending gobs of money on TV ads that claim "Mike gets it done" while simultaneously displaying the kind of elitism
New videos of Bloomberg making outrageous statements have emerged. These include one from 2016 in which Bloomberg claimed he "could teach anybody to be a farmer" because all one has to do is dig a hole, drop in a seed, cover the hole with dirt, water it and voila, up pops a field of corn. Apparently, he is not aware of entire schools of agriculture that exist to teach real farming. He then pointed out the difference between workers in an agricultural economy and today's information economy. "You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter." That sound bite should play well in Republican TV ads in farm belt states.
Let's not stop there with Bloomberg's parade of elitist, condescending and even sexist and racist remarks. Another video features Bloomberg saying, "There is an enormous cohort of Black and Latino males, aged let's say 16 to 25 that don't have jobs, don't have any prospects, don't know how to find jobs, don't know what their skillsets are, don't know how to behave in the workplace where they have to work collaboratively."

"A good salesperson is like a man who tries to pick up women at a bar by saying, "Do you want to f---? He gets turned down a lot -- but he gets f----- a lot, too!" Bloomberg also allegedly said that his company's financial information computers "will do everything, including give you [oral sex]. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business."
Let's see if any of the others running for president bring up these comments as Bloomberg takes the stage.
