Bloomberg Draws Paltry Crowd of 45 at Heavily Advertised Rally

Bloomberg carpet-bombed the airwaves with commercials promoting the event.

Michael Bloomberg drew a puny crowd of 45 to a rally in San Antonio, Texas over the weekend, despite carpet-bombing the airwaves of local TV and radio stations with ads promoting the event.

Bloomberg’s campaign claimed the event was attended by 130 people, but sources indicate the crowd was much smaller. The megabillionaire oligarch and former New York City mayor was introduced by Judge Judy of reality TV show fame.

Bloomberg’s event was picketed by pro-Trump demonstrators, who were seen with ‘Trump 2020’ placards through the restaurant’s windows.

The massively wealthy oligarch has already shattered all-time records for campaign spending in a primary, dropping $34 million on a single ad buy placed at the beginning of his late campaign alone.

He’s spent more than $200 million on his campaign thus far-having been in the race for less than two months.

Bloomberg has eschewed a traditional primary campaign strategy of focusing on early-voting states such as New Hampshire and Iowa to harness momentum, instead focusing on bigger states such as California and Texas. With the former Wall Street businessman’s personal net worth of more than $57 billion, it seems as if he’s planning on shamelessly buying his way to the top of the Democratic primary.

However, Bloomberg’s shameless strategy might be more transparent with Democratic primary voters than he realizes. He’s failed to gain serious momentum in the primary, pushing to around 5% in polling averages but failing to seriously challenge current frontrunners such as Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

Bloomberg may be the most anti-gun Democrat currently running. He’s orchestrated operations to pass draconian packages of gun control legislation in states such as Virginia,

Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected

Just weeks ago, Romney was voting to impeach Trump.

Published

on

Mitt Romney admitted during a Munich Security Conference panel in Germany that President Donald Trump is “likely” to be re-elected on Friday.

Romney’s admission could be interpreted as a tacit admission that the Utah Republican was seeking to overturn the likely will of the American voter in the 2020 election. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump on Democratic impeachment charges, claiming he warranted removal from office for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.

I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected, not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.

Romney’s answer when asked about Trump’s re-election chances seems to suggest he believes Democrats are going to nominate Bernie Sanders. Establishment conservatives such as Romney often tend to underestimate populist political figures such as Sanders in a similar manner that they did Trump in the 2016 election. (Romney did admit that he “did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump.”)

Romney was lauded for his impeachment vote by the crowd at the annual event, a mainstay institution for the western political elite. A moderator for the panel claimed he “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”

The failed 2012 presidential candidate may have alienated himself even further from the Republican party with remarks that seemed dismissive of his Senate colleagues, describing them as beholden to the President.

In what may have been his most self-reflective remarks of the night, Romney admitted there was little to no desire among the American public for the outdated liberal conservative principles he’s known for.

Right now, the nature of American politics is highly populist… I’m perhaps a throwback. I jokingly say I have about 2% of the population that’s with me.”

I think that might be a bit on the high side, Mitt.
