Hey, remember that time Michael Bloomberg ran for president? How much did that cost him (besides his pride, of course)?
For history's sake, it's now official: @MikeBloomberg donated $1,047,623,103.81 to his presidential campaign, according to a new filing with the FEC, my colleague @fschouten reports. That's precise, right down to the penny, but don't you wonder what the 81 cents were for?

When you think youβre literally the only solution to what ails America, you spare no expense!
With 49 delegates, that means Mike Bloomberg spent roughly 21,000,000 per delegate. https://t.co/7HOHPlPVcS

imagine dumping $1 billion into a presidential run and the most memorable moment of the campaign is a photoshop of your face on a meatball. https://t.co/u9C6DiUKKQ

When you got it, flaunt it. Or set it on fire. Either one.
He flushed a billion dollars down the toilet only to end up far more nationally hated than he was beforehand. Narcissism is a hell of a drug. https://t.co/xCc6QeeOus
