2020 Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg might be shoveling millions of dollars in the furnace to fund his television ad campaign, but he’s discovered social media as well. He’s tweeted a photo of the nightmarish open office he plans to turn the White House East Room into (so he’ll be closer to his team) and a photo of himself standing on the New York subway to prove that he … always stands?
Those have both been tweets from Bloomberg’s own account, but now Team Bloomberg seems to be talking the helm, and they’ve already tripped up.

… with barely concealed disdain?
— Dan (@LawoftheGator) January 6, 2020
With disgust and anxiety?

Bloomberg looks as comfortable there as a hog might feel.
— Verbaluce (@verbaluce) January 6, 2020
Reads more like an expression of dread with just the slightest bit of contempt/disgust to me. Must be awful, having to constantly pose for photo ops with the unwashed masses and eat delicious brisket.
— True Face (@actualproximate) January 6, 2020
I’m amazed that you people think that this is a flattering picture. He looks like he’s disgusted at the peasant food that’s been laid out before him
— The Original Straw Smuggler (@ethebuilder) January 6, 2020
And he looks scared of it! ?
— PSAM (@PSAM51790345) January 6, 2020
He looks like he's tallying the calorie count in his head.
— neets (@nycneets) January 6, 2020
He looks ready to leave

"So this is how the poors eat? I can't say I'm impressed…"

those aren’t ribs, that’s brisket. Also, that’s some of the worst looking BBQ I’ve ever seen.
— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) January 6, 2020
Find someone in your marketing staff who knows the difference between ribs and what appears to be some extremely poorly made brisket.
— green world war III (@tomizedconsumer) January 6, 2020
Lol. Clearly brisket. I don’t think I can trust people who don’t know bbq.
— Matthew White (@Matt_S_White) January 6, 2020
May I also point out that it looks incredibly dry. Just like Mike's personality.
— Jules Luciano (@JulesInFoCo) January 6, 2020
i thought meat was bad?
and, those aren't ribs.
— Anton Pagi (@AntonPagi) January 6, 2020
Leave it to a New Yorker to not know what ribs look like.
And for the record, that's crap BBQ.
— Revered and Austere Mourners (@rvolt24) January 6, 2020
I don't think Mike has the slightest idea.
— Billy Anderson (@wawabilly) January 6, 2020
Yeah, that's brisket there, New York.
— Jon Cassidy (@jpcassidy000) January 6, 2020
That’s NY ribs…
— Scott Wright (@scottwright1429) January 6, 2020
He's just looking for a way to tax it.
— David Fowler (@model217) January 6, 2020
Um that’s brisket and I don’t want to find someone that looks at me like they’re trying to find a new way to tax me. But thank you. @TeamBloomberg

Being Jewish, I would hope he knows brisket. It's very popular on Jewish holidays. ?
— ACT?☕ (@ACT519) January 6, 2020
Probably figuring out how to ban them.
— Impeach This ? (@velcra820) January 6, 2020
And he’s ruled that 2.5 ounces max per order.

<GASP> PLASTIC utensils???

He's already slapped their giant drinks off the table
— BGH – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@KissMyCamo) January 6, 2020
He let his picture be taken in front of a Coca Cola sign…. that is against his own rules
— Mike Tapas (@MikeTapas) January 6, 2020
Coke sign above his head probably to big
— fred (@americanfreebir) January 6, 2020
Notice, they all hid their sodas. ??
— Charles Mulligan (@CharlesMullig15) January 6, 2020
Are they allowed to drink soda?
— Boomer McBlockmee (@WiseOldToolFan) January 6, 2020
For now …
Ahh, Bloomberg’s feeble attempts to relate to the middle and lower classes
— Zeke Morgan (@z3kem0rgan) January 6, 2020
That just tanked his campaign

This is what passes for social media from the most wealthy candidate in the race? Embarrassing.
— Behold666 (@behold666) January 6, 2020
This is going to be The Producers in campaign form, isn't it…
— Orange Juche (@OrangeJuche) January 6, 2020
I'd rather find a presidential candidate that actually wants to win and will compete in the first 4 primaries.
Also, those aren't ribs.
— Boom Boom (@Josh1938) January 6, 2020
We want to see Bloomberg out on the campaign trail tearing into a huge Philly cheesesteak. Actually, we don’t.
Vote for Mike Bloomberg because he always stands when he takes the subway https://t.co/EzWJgeK4px
