I like Ken Jennings. He reminds me of some of the Mormons and ex-Mormons I knew back when I lived in Wyoming. The vast majority of them were good people: genuinely kind, reasonable and smart. He’s a fierce competitor, but also a really good sport. So it was nice to hear that he won the Jeopardy Greatest of All Time championship.
However, Jennings didn’t hold back on another tweet that went viral on Wednesday. Presidential contender Mike Bloomberg’s Twitter account wrote, “Remember, tonight’s winner goes on to face defending champion Ken Jennings. #DemDebate.” Jennings said that when he saw another Bloomberg ad on TV throughout the broadcasts, he was “rolling his eyes” that the Democratic candidate was spending millions to barely crack the polls instead of using that money to help climate change. So he tweeted back, “Remember, defending champion Ken Jennings wants you to vote for Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.”
