Not even Michael Bloomberg seems to know why he’s in the 2020 race for president, except to burn a whole lot of money on TV commercials. He’s a bit of a blessing to Republicans, though, as he offers a “moderate” (i.e., capitalist) alternative to Joe Biden and will hopefully suck votes away from more viable candidates with his non-stop advertising.
Don’t try to tell Bloomberg he should drop out, though, because he’s been an American longer than Pete Buttigieg, and he’s been an American even longer than Joe Biden — they’re both 77, but Bloomberg was born in February, and Biden was born in November, so Bloomberg has a slight edge when it comes to being an old white man.
.@MikeBloomberg bristled when I asked about fears he may split the moderate vote, hurting Biden or Buttigieg

“I’m old AF” is kind of a weird flex in a presidential campaign.
— Bryan Knox (@bknoxmusic) February 6, 2020
So he is old? Or what is he trying to say?

What does that even mean?

Bloomberg: “I’m really old and you should elect me because of that”

I didn't know he was older than Joe. That isn't a selling point to anyone.

Wow, he manages to become less likable with every quote.

Is that his only qualification?
— Liam O'Connell (@ConnellOLiam) February 6, 2020
The fact that anyone has been alive for longer than Biden isn’t a strong argument.

Whoa, he's older than Joe? That's not a feature.
— Sam T. (@samuelt22223) February 6, 2020
He just bragged that he is the oldest white guy in the race other than Bernie.

According to the betting markets the leading candidates for the Dem nomination are Sanders, Bloomberg and Biden.
Joe Biden is the youngest of them.

I think that he wants to speak to the manager.

He’s going to do great at the Nevada debate

What’s crazy is that in the Democrat party @MikeBloomberg is considered a moderate
— Jeremiah Johnson?? (@jeremi_isaac) February 6, 2020
Mayor Pete is NOT moderate.?♀️
— Lisa Thompson (@Bucs06) February 6, 2020
Biden, Buttigieg, and Bloomberg are "moderates"? In what world do you people live in?

The creepy way he holds his hands should be disqualifying

The man hates the US Constitution, he's dumped millions into making VA blue, he funds Moms Need a Clue… What makes you think he gives a frack about the Democrat party?

Funny take from a party that believes immigrants and illegals are more American than Americans.
— HazMatt Helm (@NBurdens) February 6, 2020
That was even dumber than something Biden would say.
