Michael Bloomberg's candidacy is the $400 million temper tantrum of a billionaire who is offended and enraged that he's been able to buy everything in the world, but may not be able to buy the Democratic presidential primary.

I like NY, but I think geographic diversity is a good idea. The "national" media is actually not very "national" - it is essentially a NY/DC-based media thats broadcast to the rest of the country, but that does not necessarily do a good job of reflecting the rest of the country. https://twitter.com/GuardianJessica/status/1230555812323479553

The people who lied America into a war that killed hundreds of thousands of human beings and berated war opponents as traitors have been given platforms on TV to decry "toxicity" in our politics.
Former Bloomberg editor @Sruhle is right - there is a piece of major oppo research on Bernie, and I'll just disclose it right now: Yes, it's true: Bernie has a plan to guarantee health care to all & make the wealthy -- including TV pundits -- pay their fair share of taxes. https://twitter.com/CaseStudyQB/status/1230536002860670982
