Whatever you think of Bloomberg, the idea of him buying ads on Fox & Friends specifically to get in Trumps head is pretty funny.

And strategic. As the anonymous Trump campaign staffer says, Trump responding on Twitter is playing right into Bloomberg's hand.

Mike takes a page from Vladimir's book. Play the sucker. Big Grin


Bloomberg does know how to get inside of Trump's head, no doubt about it. And Trump has no self-control and will undoubtedly keep taking the bait.

Bloomberg's got a ton of money to carry on for a long time and keep Trump off-balance and distracted, whether he's the Dem nominee or not.

Seems like a win-win strategy.

heh heh heh

BTW, in the ads here, he refers to himself as "Mike" Bloomberg. I've never, ever heard him called anything but "Michael Bloomberg." Are we supposed to think he's now a regular guy? Was he called Mike as mayor of NYC?

Yes, often.

More of the same:

Apparently, he was asked if the country was ready for a race between two New York billionaires.

"Who's the other one?" he quipped.

I'm beginning to like the guy. Yes, he's a flawed candidate. But who isn't. Only a Bernie Bro or other form of zealot thinks so highly of their own "choice" that all the others become dung to them.
