20. He didn't expect Biden to run into trouble this quickly

 

He could have just enjoyed his life and thrown his billions-dollar-campaign machine behind Trump.

Or he could have waited, which is what he probably planned to do (I mean, wait until around summer to really start spending money), and just sat back and let Bernie be the front runner. But so much changed so quickly, he stepped up his spending (he doubled it).

Why on earth would he go to this trouble? And this expense? When all is said and done, I predict he spends at least two and a half billion dollars (based on his current burn rate of $38 a second).

I think it's exactly like another DUer put it, "he doesn't give a shit if he's president or not" he just wants to jump into this fight to make sure Trump is annihilated.

People forget something: Mike Bloomberg has a life. And this fiasco will probably take a couple of years off it.

The best way to get Trump elected was for him to do nothing and not spend a cent unless it was at the last minute to help Trump directly. His life expectancy will probably drop slightly for jumping into this from the stress and the attacks he's about to endure.

I don't mean to be rude... but jesus christ.



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