‘I’d Do Her’: Mike Bloomberg and the Underbelly of #MeToo



If you find yourself seeking, in these turbulent times, evidence of steadiness among the chaos—proof that even as the seas rise and the winds whip and the world that was gives way to the world that will be, some things will remain the same—here is a fact that seems always to be true: Mike Bloomberg is considering a run for president.

The newest version of the old truth comes from an article published this week in The New York Times: The billionaire former mayor, the paper announces, validating the rumors, is again considering a presidential run—this time, however, as a Democrat. It would not be an easy candidacy. “Mr. Bloomberg,” the Times points out, “is plainly an uncomfortable match for a progressive coalition passionately animated by concern for economic inequality and the civil rights of women and minorities.” Indeed: In an interview with the paper, Bloomberg defends stop-and-frisk. And, voicing “doubt” about some of the revelations that have been made in the course of #MeToo, Bloomberg mentions as an example Charlie Rose, who had broadcast his show from a space in Bloomberg’s corporate offices. He declined to say, specifically, whether he believed the many allegations against Rose. “Let the court system decide,” the former mayor said.

If Bloomberg does gain the nomination of the democrat party, will you have issues with his seemingly #metoo issues of the past?

It won't matter to Democrats what Bloomberg did in his past, just as they didn't care what Bill Clinton did, but I don't think Bloomberg has a chance. He's not as far left as Democrats seem to want and he is about as charismatic as a wet noodle.

From what I've read, Bloomberg claims to be fiscally responsible and he has opposed the legalization of marijuana. Democrats seem to want a candidate who will give them everything under the sun.

Disparaging comments and demeaning jokes, along with cheating on all three wives, paying off a porn star to keep quiet, and describing his wife as a "great piece of ass" doesn't seem to be a problem for Trump, so why would it be for Bloomberg?

The democrats actually don't care about sexual crimes. They're just a weapon to be used on their political opponents.
