Self-ageist?

Does anybody know why Michael Bloomberg is running for president? Does Michael Bloomberg know? Seems weird, given that nobody was asking the former NYC mayor to run. Oh, well. What can you do? It’s a free country.

The thing is, Bloomberg, who is supported by Judge Judy, admitted earlier this year that he shouldn’t be running for POTUS. The billionaire essentially DQ’d himself before he even got into the contest. What will excuse be now that he’s running? He’s suddenly not too old? How would that work?

Trending: Noted Trump Critic Says POTUS Defense Team Was ‘Brilliant’ & ‘Sophisticated’ & ‘Effective’

Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg suggested earlier this year that he was too old to run for president and that if he decided to run that he would have to be “willing to change all” his political views.

“I’ve assembled a team already to go,” Bloomberg said in March at the Bermuda Executive Forum New York. “But at some point you got to say, ‘look, I would be 79 years old when I took office.’ People say, well Ronald Reagan was 80 when he left, yeah, when he was 80 they carried him out gaga. That really is very close; I don’t mean to exaggerate it, but that is very close to being true.”

Bloomberg added, “To start a 4-year job, maybe an 8-year job, at age 79 may not be the smartest thing to do.

He continued, “I just couldn’t see a path where I could get the nomination and to spend the next year and a half, two years of my life campaigning, no matter how much I love campaigning — I’ve had three campaigns, won them all. New York City is anything but an easy place to do business and politics — it’s every problem in the world is here and you have to address everything.

WATCH:

Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said in March of this year said that he was *too old* to run for president and that he would not be successful “unless I was willing to change all my views and go on what CNN called ‘an apology tour’”

Dems Demand Bolton Testify After Book Allegedly Says Trump Withheld Ukraine Aid (Details)

‘Allegedly’ is the keyword…

Democrats really, really, really want to see former NSA John Bolton testify before Congress. They believe he knows something about President Trump and Ukraine that the administration is hiding. This is a long shot. First of all, if Bolton knew something it would’ve been leaked to a reporter by now. Secondly, as you’ll see in the Twitter thread below, Bolton’s lawyer has no clue what Dems are talking about. From MSN via NYT: President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton. The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Rashida Tlaib Retweets Story About Israelis Killing Palestinian Boy, But It Never Happened

The definition of ‘fake news’…

Rashida Tlaib hasn’t exactly been shy about how much she dislikes the nation of Israel. It’s quite stunning to see coming a member of Congress, if you think about. But because Rashida is a Democrat, it’s fine. The mainstream media will give her a pass for hating Israel because she’s a woman and she’s Muslim. Obviously, that doesn’t make it right. Yet, having a “D” at the end of your name can do wonderful things for a person’s career. Here’s what she retweeted: https://twitter.com/Ostrov_A/status/1221089689328869376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221089689328869376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/AviKaner/status/1221097453698592769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221097453698592769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F https://twitter.com/KyleWOrton/status/1221096740901748737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221096740901748737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F During a speech in Miami, President Trump called out “the squad” in a way that not many people in the public eye ever have. And the way he did it is the exact reason he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, and, GOD-willing, why he’ll be re-elected this coming November.

Won’t bring it up.” https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1213232601441460231?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1213232601441460231&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F476737-trump-lashes-out-at-squad-they-hate-jewish-people From The Hill: Trump sparked outrage on Capitol Hill in August when he said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should block Tlaib and Omar from visiting the country. Israel later did so, despite earlier vows by officials to welcome any members of Congress to the country. […] Omar in particular has raised eyebrows with her comments about Israel, suggesting that powerful Jews inside and outside of Congress are pushing “allegiance to a foreign country” over their support for the state.
