Over the course of Bernie Sanders’ time as a 2020 presidential candidate, he’s spent a lot of time railing against billionaires and rich people. If you listen to Sanders and review his policies, he’s got a lot of anti-billionaire talking points and believes that hiking taxes on the wealthy is the go-to for various economic plights.
Sanders’ latest censure of rich folks is directed towards new presidential candidate and billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg. On Monday morning, the socialist took to Twitter stating that the “dumbest person on earth” can run for president if they have billions of dollars.
Bloomberg has yet to issue a public rebuttal to Sanders’ remarks.
A Closer Look at Sanders’ Remarks on Bloomberg’s Billions and Candidacy
Michael Bloomberg caused waves in the field of Democrat candidates when he announced his run for office last week. Bloomberg is entering the race much later than other candidates who have been campaigning for months.
Moreover, five Democrat debates are already passed; while other running Democrats were able to allow the American people to hear them and learn about their policies, Bloomberg has yet to truly speak to folks in this country.
However, recent reports indicated that Bloomberg is steadily rising and already beating out certain low-polling candidates such as Kamala Harris and Andrew Yang. However, due to Bloomberg’s billions and substantial net worth, he’s being accused of buying his way to the Democrat nomination.
In the wake of Bloomberg’s new candidacy, he’s spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertisements. Shortly after this news broke, Sanders released a statement where he professed “disgust” for billionaires like Bloomberg who believe they can purchase elections and “circumvent the political process.”
Will Bloomberg Win the Democrat Party’s Nomination?
Despite Bloomberg’s billionaire status, he’s got a snowball’s chance in a fiery furnace of winning the Democrat Party’s nomination. History has shown Americans that the DNC has a way of pulling strings and ensuring that their preferred candidate gets in.
Right now, Democrats are on an anti-billionaire crusade; furthermore, they’re all about getting in an establishment candidate who they at least pretend to believe will challenge President Trump. At this time, all signs seem to be pointing to Joe Biden, despite his multiple blunders, gaffes, and concerning behaviors.
