A Michael Bloomberg campaign staffer has tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus, one day before the New York megabillionaire broke a promise he had made to campaign employees by firing them.
Bloomberg’s candidacy has been defunct since Super Tuesday. But the former New York City mayor had promised campaign staff that joined his big-spending presidential campaign that their jobs would be safe until November. The staffers were expected to be used for an anti-Trump movement in swing states.
Instead, campaign staff were told in a Thursday email that they’re being let ago at the end of month. On the very next day, the Bloomberg campaign informed them that campaign workers in a building the ultra-billionaire was using as his headquarters were exposed to the coronavirus. The candidate’s campaign managers did not disclose whether or not the individual since known to have tested positive for the disease was working personally on the Bloomberg campaign.
At least one former Bloomberg staffer vocally condemned his former employer in no uncertain terms.

Some staffers are even more concerned of the coronavirus exposure on account of their health insurance coverage. They’re set to lose coverage they obtained as a benefit of their campaign employment at the end of the month- bringing up the possibility that they could be forced to seek medical treatment for the novel, deadly virus without insurance coverage.
Bloomberg, one of the wealthiest men in the world with a whopping net worth of 45 billion dollars, spent almost one billion dollars on his failed presidential campaign.
He announced this week that he’s going to donate $40 million to coronavirus treatment and containment efforts, a mere pittance in comparison to the sum he spent on a totally pointless vanity presidential campaign. If he had instead directed the funds he spend campaigning on treating the disease, there’s a real chance he could’ve made a serious difference in ameliorating the epidemic ravaging American society.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
