Democrats, Mike Bloomberg Is Not Your Friend.

Look, we get it. Trump Derangement is the real deal. If anything, the last three years have proven that it exists. Operation Crossfire-Hurricane that led to the Mueller investigation, with Adam Schiff promising for years, that he had overwhelming evidence of Russia-Trump collusion and this would end President Trump’s tenure. But, it wasn’t. And it didn’t.

Next, was the Ukranian Gate, quid-pro-quo phone call involving President Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky that ultimately led to the third impeachment of a sitting president. Again, Adam Schiff, and Jerry Nadler this time, claimed they had overwhelming evidence that Donald Trump was guilty and should be removed from office. But, he wasn’t. And they didn’t.

Instead, he was acquitted of the charges — no matter what Nancy Pelosi thinks.

Democrats are angry. We get it. If the shoe was on the other foot, conservatives would probably throw a fit too. But, that’s politics for you.

And, the current state of the Democratic Presidential Nomination isn’t helping voters have confidence in the process. Iowa’s primary vote debacle with the Shadow Inc. app failing to give proper results and the fact the app was never “properly tested” to handle statewide voting has proven the DNC is unable to get their act together against Trump. Even now, almost a month later, they may need a recanvas to get final results in Iowa.

They’ve even got to the point, where even if it means losing liberal values of “grassroots only” individual donations to qualify for democratic debate, that’s fine; as long as your name is Mike Bloomberg.

All he had to do is dump $338.7 million into an ad blitz campaign, donate to a few campaigns, and privately fund attorneys in a couple of state AG’s offices to push his climate change agenda. Now, Mike Bloomberg will be on the stage at the next debates after surging in the polls.

He’s buying his way in, there should be no doubt in our minds that is exactly what he did and that should upset you. Senator Bernie Sanders, whom many conservatives find little, if at all, in common, have voiced the same option — billionaires don’t have the right to buy their way into the election this late in the game.

There is a bipartisan objection to Bloomberg paving his way into the Oval Office with gold bars. The DNC is spitting in the face of their supporters by allowing Bloomberg to disregard the rules, that they themselves started to keep big money out of the presidential race, and throwing away their moral values for the sake of vote blue, no matter who.

Trump’s removal is the goal. Great, that’s fine. But, don’t lose what makes your values and morals liberal in the first place, just because you can’t stand Donald Trump.

Bloomberg is only adopting liberal values to win the nomination. His actions and policies of the past do not match your own. “Stop and Frisk” is the biggest indicator of Bloomberg’s incompatibility with the Democratic Party. In recent audio, Bloomberg defended the policy that he “inherited.”

Ninety-five percent of murders, murderers and murder victims, fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city. And that’s where the real crime is.

This is not the only controversy that he is facing leading up to the debates. Claims of misogynistic and sexist comments have been made public. CNN reported that they examined two lawsuits that claimed “Bloomberg and other male executives at the company sexually demeaned and harassed female colleagues.”

The whole point of ousting Trump is due to his actions and demeanor. Why would you want to put another version of Trump in the Oval office just because he has a D next to his name?

Democrats, Mike Bloomberg is not your friend, nor does he share your values and morals as a party. By allowing him to buy his way into the election, you forfeit what makes you liberals and progressives in the first place.

Mike Bloomberg is the 1%. Don’t forget that just because he flashes a few pieces of silver in your face.
