A spokesman said that Bloomberg “believes that Donald Trump represents an unprecedented threat to our nation” and that “the current field of candidates is not well positioned” to defeat him. He plans to file for access to the Alabama ballot before Friday’s deadline; deadlines for filing for additional state ballots are looming.
Just what we need, a 78 year-old old white guy to lecture us on how we’re all too liberal.
I remember a conversation I had with a New York Republican businessman just before Trump clinched the nomination. His theory was that Bloomberg would jump into the Republican race and save the Republicans from themselves. That demonstrates the political power of Bloomberg — massive in its potential in the minds of center-right supporters, yet puny in its substance.
It’s more than a little funny that the first state he’s going to file in is Alabama, where he’ll be about as welcome as a pregnant nun in a convent, a fart in church, or a imam at a Trump rally.
