Michael Bloomberg spoke of two men who died of opioid overdoses in mocking terms, stating the men were from a “bad family.”
The remarks were made at the Bermuda Executive Forum, an event for connected business executives in March of 2019.
Bloomberg was speaking about the nationwide opioid crisis, bringing up a story from the New York Daily News. Joseph and Carlos Andrade, father and son, both died of heroin overdoses after a party in Brooklyn.
Watch his remarks here:
“Daily News had a picture on the front page of a father and a son — they both OD’d at the same party. I mean, it’s not a good family — craziness.”
Bloomberg’s dismissive tone was bad enough. But some among the financial class present at the event to hear Bloomberg speak openly laughed at the former New York mayor’s description of the men as being from a “bad family.”
Hundreds of thousands of Americans of all geographic and ethnic varieties have lost their lives in the ongoing opioid crisis. They deserve compassion, not for an authoritarian oligarch to cast off their deaths as the consequence of them being from “bad families.”
As Bloomberg’s dismal record and history of outright insults to populations of Americans ranging from farmers to machinists is revealed, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for the megabillionaire Democratic candidate to deny that he’s anything more than the most blatant of coastal elitists.
In revealing fashion, Bloomberg went on to frame the opioid crisis as a concern for the economy and business interests, as opposed to a great human tragedy that’s ravaged communities and families across the country.
“We’re losing control, and it’s the workforce that suffers.”
REPORT: President Trump to Pardon General Michael Flynn
President Donald Trump is planning on issuing a presidential pardon to former US National Security Advisor and US Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday night.
Axios sources two officials within the White House who state that Flynn will be pardoned within the coming months. President Trump is contesting the final outcome of the 2020 presidential election in court.
Flynn was ensnared in an FBI plot to criminalize diplomacy he conducted as incoming National Security Director in 2016 and 2017. He was ultimately charged with process crimes for allegedly lying to the FBI in interrogations about his duties. The DOJ recently withdrew the criminal case against the retired general, citing the considerable evidence of FBI corruption, unlawful surveillance, and partisan bias in the case.
Documents detailing the FBI’s political investigation into Trump’s first National Security Advisor revealed investigators openly attacked Flynn for political, as opposed to law enforcement, purposes.
However, left-wing Judge Emmet Sullivan still refuses to dismiss the criminal charges against General Flynn, even without a prosecution. The judge has continued a “zombie prosecution” against Flynn, possibly in hopes of getting a Democratic Justice Department to resume the case against the career military officer for manufactured process crimes.
A full pardon of Flynn would represent justice for a man maliciously targeted by political interests within the so-called US “deep state.”
