  9. The DNC changed the rules just so Bloomberg could join the debates. They excluded Tulsi Gabbard. That tells you all you need to know about the Democratic Party.

  10. Everyone should stop saying he qualified. He bribed his way in. Literally.

  11. Bloomberg's the ONLY chance to win swing states and avoid another 4 years of Trump.

  12. NBC cut off the Democrat debate feed and are showing Trump live. What's going on?

  16. Lol I can't stop laughing with these Democrat idiots…. They are so brainwashed their drinking all the cool aid

  17. I will confess I have a political ❤️❤️❤️ crush ❤️❤️❤️ on BERNIE SANDERS. I love this man!!!

  18. Bloombergs likely already knows the questions before the Debate

  19. The no values Democrats let racist rich white billionaire buy his way into the campaign. Change the rules. Democrats values are as follows: bribery, money talks, pay to play and pay for access.

  20. Rather have a self made billionaire than a millionaire born with a silver spoon in his mouth and 7 times bankruptcy or 'career politicians"

  21. If Bloomberg wants win over the Black vote he better call
    for a moment of silence before the debate and pay tribute that looks sincere
    and heartfelt to Pop Smoke who was martyred earlier today before Bernie does.

  22. Two candidates from the same tribe out of 8 candidates is a gross over representation since their coethnics are only 2% of the population. 🤔
    Mini Mike gotta go!


  24. He is well qualified by his cash alone !

  25. Bernie has been running for over 25 years. Bloomberg is not his problem electability is..

  26. It's his money…he can do what he want

  27. I wouldn't say he qualifies, more like he spent $350 mill in two weeks to buy his spot because here in America when you're worth $56 Billion the democratic process doesn't apply. Bloomberg is the textbook definition of an Oligarch. Oh yeah and he likes to stop and frisk black people. spy on Muslims w/o warrant or cause and ban large sodas because "freedom".

  28. Typical Demoncrat tactic, cheat!
    What a surprise!🤩🤣

  29. It would be awesome if Bernie would stand up for Tulsi at tonights debate and say how does Bloomberg buy his way on stage while Tulsi who has been campaigning for over a year gets blacked out by the media

  30. Democrats are so desperate they are trying to buy the election. They can’t even agree on a candidate let alone win an election. I should start a non profit so I can get some of the money Bloomberg is passing out.

  31. Vote for the rich guy he knows whats good for you. LOL. All of these wealthy people do NOT want people to have a say in their own lives. They want to control everyone because they have lied and cheated billions out of people so that makes them way smarter than you. Which in my opinion makes them nothing more than Rich Arrogant Basturds.

  32. He will win. They will do anything to get Bernie out. Dems would rather have Trump than Sanders. Why do you think Pelosi has given Trump everything he has wanted?

  33. I really can't figure out why people keep insisting on being told how they should live their lives vs getting to decide for themselves how they are going to live. People like Jeff Bezoz amazon, we don't need unions I will negotiate with any employee ( and ignore them ) or you're a wonderful employee we will promote you. Then fire you because you can't do the job. These anti union tactics have been in place for years. Only Bernie will let you decide what is good for you. Not the wealthy.

  34. Get rid of a loser add a loser.

  35. Please define "Qualifies". He didn't qualify for anything until he threw $300,000 at the DNC. Is this how Democracy dies?

  36. Henry Ford: union buster. Nelson Rockefeller: Attica 1971. Bloomberg. Need I say more? All cut from the same cloth. Vote Bernie who is like an old Rocky Balboa. The above drew first blood so let Bernie finish the fight. Fight dirty Bernie!

  37. Trump took sondlands. Money and screwed him he already had that planed because sondland was going to say the truth. Trump is the 😈.

  38. More money and more racist and definitely more sexist than the bad orange man
    Maybe he can pardon avennati so he has a good VP 🤣🤣🤣

  39. Bloomberg Was responsible for the trump impeachment fiasco Cause he spent $100,000,000 To get the Dems in the house Elected

  40. I think you meant to say he bought himself a spot at the debates. 😂😂 what a joke.

  41. Bloomberg should get the nomination. He's by far the smartest candidate the Democrats have as well as being the most accomplished. He's also the only one that isn't a career lifelong politician and is somebody who actually worked his way up through the private sector. Way better choice than Sanders or Biden.

    Michael Bloomberg Once Blamed End of Discriminatory 'Redlining' for 2008 Financial Collapse

    BY BRIAN SLODYSKO / AP FEBRUARY 13, 2020 https://time.com/5783446/michael-bloomberg-redlining-collapse/

    (WASHINGTON) — At the height of the 2008 economic collapse, then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the elimination of a discriminatory housing practice known as “redlining” was responsible for instigating the meltdown.

    “It all started back when there was a lot of pressure on banks to make loans to everyone,” Bloomberg, now a Democratic presidential candidate, said at a forum that was hosted by Georgetown University in September 2008. “Redlining, if you remember, was the term where banks took whole neighborhoods and said, ‘People in these neighborhoods are poor, they’re not going to be able to pay off their mortgages, tell your salesmen don’t go into those areas.’”

    He continued: “And then Congress got involved — local elected officials, as well — and said, ‘Oh that’s not fair, these people should be able to get credit.’ And once you started pushing in that direction, banks started making more and more loans where the credit of the person buying the house wasn’t as good as you would like.”

    Bloomberg, a billionaire who built a media and financial services empire before turning to electoral politics, was correct that the financial crisis was triggered in part by banks extending loans to borrowers who were ill-suited to repay them. But by attributing the meltdown to the elimination of redlining, a practice used by banks to discriminate against minority borrowers, Bloomberg appears to be blaming policies intended to bring equality to the housing market.

    The term redlining comes from the “red lines” those in the financial industry would draw on a map to denote areas deemed ineligible for credit, frequently based on race.

    “It’s been well documented that the 2008 crash was caused by unethical, predatory lending that deliberately targeted communities of color,” said Debra Gore-Mann, president and CEO of the Greenlining Institute, a nonprofit that works for racial and economic justice. “People of color were sold trick loans with exploding interest rates designed to push them into foreclosure. Our communities of color and low income communities were the victims of the crash, not the cause.”
