Since his time as a presidential candidate, Mike Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions of bucks on bogus, disinformation ads. These ads are frequently streamed on radio, television, YouTube, etc. Bloomberg’s approach for winning the Democrat nomination also differs from other 2020 candidates; he not only entered the race much later than his in-party rivals, but Bloomberg also has yet to make it on a single debate stage.

At this time, the former New York City mayor turned 2020 Democrat is focusing on campaigning in Southern states, namely those that will head to the polls for March 3rd’s Super Tuesday. However, Bloomberg has also faced increasing condemnation for the manner in which he’s chosen to run his campaign.

Folks on both sides of the aisle ongoingly censure the 2020 Democrat for attempting to buy his way into the nomination; on Wednesday, Bloomberg was directly called out for this by a protester while campaigning in Chattanooga, Tennessee, reports Townhall.

What Happened at Bloomberg’s Event in Tennessee?

While the former mayor spent time attempting to further his campaign in Tennessee, a protester decided to temporarily pause the 2020 candidate.

Pushing her way on stage and speaking on a mic, the woman advised that Bloomberg is essentially “buying this election.” Shortly before the 2020 Democrat’s team turned off the microphone in use, the female protester also warned that Bloomberg’s manner of going about this election represents that of “plutocracy,” rather than democracy.

Needless to say, this woman was eventually escorted from Bloomberg’s campaign event.

Bloomberg’s Fear of Direct Challenges

Throughout Bloomberg’s candidacy, he’s managed to hide behind misinformation ads and avoid direct confrontation with his 2020 rivals. This comes in spite of the DNC’s recent decision to remove their donor mandate, thus paving the way for the self-funding Bloomberg to appear on debate stages. President Trump, for his part, has criticized Bloomberg for the latter’s unwillingness to directly debate his rivals.

Right now, the likelihood of Bloomberg winning the Democrat Party’s nomination is still unknown. Rumor has it that DNC establishment figures are considering him as the replacement for Biden if the former vice president continues stumbling throughout his campaign.

If Bloomberg does, in fact, win the Democrat nomination, he will have to face Trump and won’t be able to use disinformation ads as political shields.
