Bloomberg's message in the ads is nothing more than "I hate Trump enough to throw away a lot of money!". The man must be insane to spend that kind of money. I often see people that are so upset about something someone else does that they go crazy. While I think Mike Bloomberg is a good business man I am sure people will come out of the woodwork against him as being a whack job to work for. After all we are only seeing how "great" he is in 100 million dollars worth of advertising. Could someone tell me how much more than his average worker at this companies he makes?

100 million wasted on anti Trump ads? Just think of all the good that 100 million could have done? Nobody should have that kind of power or money who obviously is not in complete control of their sanity. It could have been against Bernie ads, I'm just saying not the workings of a sane man. And he expects people with half a brain will vote for him? Oops never mind Lucas made it into office along with Davids so guess that explains that.

I'm voting for Bloomberg because his ads are focusing on the epidemic of gun violence in this country, & the terrorist NRA's Second Amendment Lies.

"Nobody should have that kind of power or money who obviously is not in complete control of their sanity."

Do you think Donald Trump is a "stable genius"?

Anonymous said...

After a fashion he is, Byron!
If you've ever been in a stable you'd know that.
The label "Horseshit Genius" is a pretty good description of "el Caudumblio"!

I don't know that to be fact or not Byron, but lets compare Trump to your accomplishments in life. Okay .0000500 seconds later the answer is Trump has been successful while you have not done anything other than be a loser who hates those who have made it in life.

Bloomberg is another super rich man the kind that you hate as you have made it very well known by what you have said in the past. So you're now supporting another really rich man while trash talking another man you hate because he is rich.

All Bloomburg is attacking is the law abiding people of our country, but I wouldn't expect an idiot like you to see that.

Why don't we know the average worker pay for Bloomberg's companies? Someone that rich being able to buy an election surely must pay his average worker 1-2000 a week so $50000 - 100,000 a year. Lets have the facts! Oh, just another lying democrat!
