As we told you Monday night, Michael Bloomberg’s town hall on Fox News had some “WTF” moments, and one of them was the Dem presidential candidate and former NYC mayor’s comments about gun control:
Michael Bloomberg called out at town hall for hypocrisy over armed security (but he’s rich and gets lots of threats) https://t.co/hb3cLiVorv

If Bloomberg’s “I’m rich and more important than you” spin on the gun question wasn’t enough, he was also asked about his giant carbon footprint, which includes several homes around the world and a fleet of private aircraft. To answer that question, Bloomberg took an approach similar to his gun rights spin: I need to do it in order to eliminate it:

So basically Bloomberg’s mantra is “guns and private jets for me but not for thee.”
Bloomberg can fly around on his private jet and lecture us on climate change at the same time because he's special. https://t.co/yquNP9nlFB

We can’t say we’re surprised.
You learn something new every day.
I didn't know that you have to fly to Bermuda to end coal mining. https://t.co/maJppz3EVO

Hey, Bloomberg’s obviously smarter than the rest of us so it’s got to be part of his grand plan.
This is always the ruling class's answer. We are important, you are not. You will cut your carbon footprint but we will not.
The ruling class never changes, they expect everyone else to sacrifice ? https://t.co/N0Abxs5L53

Fact check: TRUE! Maybe just not to the degree of Bloomberg.
That's your east coast elitism in a nutshell.

He literally said he's training coal miners for other jobs. Where's the proof?

Bloomberg’s explanation for why he can’t fly commercial also sets off BS detectors:
That isn't even an exaggeration. Bloomberg also claims him flying on a commercial jet is too much of a security risk, which way overestimates his importance. https://t.co/Ei30EnOOgU

Presumably any “threats” aboard commercial flights would not be carrying weapons on board due to security measures, but Bloomberg’s got to try and cover his hypocrisy somehow.
That should play well in Pennsylvania… https://t.co/dGJkec1LtJ
