35. Almost perfect, but Bloomberg doesn't "hate" Trump.


That would be giving Trump exactly what he wants. Trump's fuel is hate. He loves having enemies, but Bloomberg is actually looking down on Trump from a higher level. They aren't equals and Trump will have trouble accepting this.

The story Bloomberg tells about not caring enough to even write down the new president's personal phone number is the key to understanding the Trump/Bloomberg dynamic. That's way more offensive to Trump than "hating" him.

(that story is here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/1287443033 )

When there are mice in the garage, you don't waste time and energy "hating" the mice. You buy traps. Bloomberg's approach is very cllinical and calculated, because he knows who Trump is. He's seen a million guys like this over his lifetime.

The hate is from Trump's side and will intensify over time. But it's really more than hate. It's like when you're 13 years old and your father gets incredibly angry at you. It's not really hate, it's visceral fear and self-doubt. Trump's guts are churning, his adrenaline pours out when he thinks of Bloomberg.

That's why I believe Michael Bloomberg is an existential threat to Donald Trump, regardless of whether or not he wins the nomination. (https://www.democraticunderground.com/1287420520)

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
