So Bloomberg implies that he got the diverse city of NYC through 9/11...implying that he was mayor when it was Rudy ...That's just weird and creepy.

I thought that seemed odd when I saw it.

He keeps bringing this up in the debates too. That he has all this experience with dealing with crisis/disaster because he was there to deal with 9/11. You'd think someone would remind him that Rudy was the mayor at the time. But no way in hell would any of them want to acknowledge Rudy. So they just roll with it.

May want to check the dates on Bloomberg’s term as mayor before you say he is lying. I really can’t stand him, but he did help lead NYC through a tough time after 9/11. Unless you think they had it all back to normal in 4 months.

Yes he was mayor during much of the comeback, but one ad he says, "I led New York City through 9/11." That is patently false.

I don't have a problem with that claim, he was there in the aftermath...it would be nice if we had a media that would investigate and tell us exactly what he specifically did to lead the city out of that event, but we don't.

I'm more concerned about his claim that he improved education in the city. Don't remember any big to do about that at the time.... unless he improved them by removing salt shakers from the cafeterias.

That would make him partly responsibly for AOC no? She's only 30 which puts her in 5th or 6 grade during 9/11... Yeah, stellar job there Bloomberg... lol

Here's something Bloomberg (and all the other Dem candidates) are definitely lying about, the corona virus. If this is as serious as the Dems are saying maybe they should stop politicizing it for their own gain. They just keep sinking lower and lower and lower and....etc. Is there nothing they want politicize in their quest for power? At this point, I doubt it.

https://apnews.com/d36d6c4de29f4d04beda3db00cb46104

Democratic presidential contenders are describing the federal infectious-disease bureaucracy as rudderless and ill-prepared for the coronavirus threat because of budget cuts and ham-handed leadership by President Donald Trump. That’s a distorted picture. For starters, Trump hasn’t succeeded in cutting the budget.

He’s proposed cuts but Congress ignored him and increased financing instead. The National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention aren’t suffering from budget cuts that never took effect.

MIKE BLOOMBERG: “There’s nobody here to figure out what the hell we should be doing. And he’s defunded — he’s defunded Centers for Disease Control, CDC, so we don’t have the organization we need. This is a very serious thing.” — debate Tuesday night.

JOE BIDEN, comparing the Obama-Biden administration with now: “We increased the budget of the CDC. We increased the NIH budget. ... He’s wiped all that out. ... He cut the funding for the entire effort.”

THE FACTS: They’re both wrong to say the agencies have seen their money cut. Bloomberg is repeating the false allegation in a new ad that states the U.S. is unprepared for the virus because of “reckless cuts” to the CDC. Trump’s budgets have proposed cuts to public health, only to be overruled by Congress, where there’s strong bipartisan support for agencies such as the CDC and NIH. Instead, financing has increased.

.....

Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.

The broader point about there being “nobody here” to coordinate the response sells short what’s in place to handle an outbreak.

The public health system has a playbook to follow for pandemic preparation — regardless of who’s president or whether specific instructions are coming from the White House. Those plans were put into place in anticipation of another flu pandemic, but are designed to work for any respiratory-borne disease.

Among the health authorities overseeing the work are Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC’s principal deputy director and a veteran of previous outbreaks, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIH’s infectious disease chief who has advised six presidents.

“The CDC’s response has been excellent, as it has been in the past,” said John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health, which works with government at all levels to improve the nation’s response to high-risk health crises. Some Democrats have charged that Trump decimated the nation’s public health leadership, but Auerbach said CDC’s top scientific ranks have remained stable during the past three years.....

You live in the Bizarro universe.
We all live in a bizzaro universe.
1. We have Creepy Joe that has built a shakedown patriarchy
2. The Bern that thinks women fantasize about rape while he's wearing his Fidel cap
3. Fauxcahontis that has a plan for everything but still doesn't know she's a white woman
4. Pete for America that doesn't think anyone realizes he is using a double entendre for a campaign slogan.
5. Little Mike that has successfully built a culture of harrassment in his company
6. Kloubuchar that prosecutes people based on their ethnicity.

And you call Trump unfit.
