1/ If you want to point a finger at two men with absolute certainty of guilt when Trump gets re-elected by Bloomberg and Tom Steyer.
I can't explain to you even a tenth of their resources would do to alter the battlefield in this campaign.
Michael Bloomberg—worth $53 Billion, is set to enter the Democrat primary where the frontrunners believe billionaires shouldn’t exist
Because 2020 Democrats are so weak that even their biggest donors like Bloomberg & Steyer would rather run than fund them
New: A top aide to Tom Steyer in Iowa has privately offered local politicians campaign contributions in exchange for endorsing his White House bid. Multiple current & former lawmakers told me Pat Murphy, Steyer’s IA sr adviser, made the offer. https://t.co/kfZHogqets
It's sad that an elite billionaire like Mike Bloomberg can deploy resources unavailable to middle class billionaires like Tom Steyer.
Bloomberg and Steyer could massively increase the chances of beating Donald Trump and dramatically improving the country in which they live simply by committing massive amounts of money to both the eventual nominee and also down-ballot races. Or they could both...do this.
!!! DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A top aide to Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer in Iowa has privately offered campaign contributions to local politicians in exchange for endorsing his White House bid, https://t.co/UCW2pCldsw
The thing is Steyer & Bloomberg we’re both financing genuinely useful political activity that was making a real difference. Sad to see that displaced by vanity runs.
It’s really wild to see the Democratic Party say they’re about stopping the influence of Money in Politics while they let billionaire Tom Steyer buy his way into debates and endorsements. https://t.co/EB11zDpA0H
Bloomberg is going to be an unstoppable juggernaut, combining the billionaire business know-how of Tom Steyer with the practical New York mayoral experience of Bill de Blasio
[watches Schultz campaign bomb]
[hears “who the fuck is John Delaney?”]
[sees Steyer embarrass himself]
Bloomberg: Democrats are hungry for someone like me.
Mike Bloomberg is going nowhere, but like Tom Steyer, he will educate us on not just how much money these plutocrats have to burn, but also that they’d rather burn their money than have society use it to better all of its members.
BREAKING: A top aide to billionaire Democrat presidential candidate Tom Steyer has privately offered campaign contributions to politicians in exchange for endorsing his White House bid.
Howard Schultz, Tom Steyer, and now Michael Bloomberg. I've enjoyed the public embarrassment of all three. https://t.co/905KUmwoUI
Fine. I'll say it.
Steyer SEEMS like a nice fellow.
Yet... Twice this week one of his staffers got caught cheating.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice?
I will dog walk your ass until you're black & blue.
Why the fuck hasn't the DNC told him to fuck off yet?
If billionaires like Bloomberg and Steyer actually cared about the well being of this country instead of their bottom line they'd invest their money and efforts into fighting voter suppression.
Steyer and Bloomberg burn mountains of money on vanity political campaigns but Bill Gates is taking shit for not saving the world fast enough.
It still blows my mind that billionaires like Steyer and Bloomberg don't see the value in starting/funding media operations with the specific purpose of combatting the right-wing propaganda machine that has gaslit Americans over the course of decades.
Our country needs that.
Billionaires like Michael Bloomberg & Tom Steyer are not running for president because they are afraid a progressive will lose to Trump. They are running because they are afraid a progressive will WIN and threaten their fortunes/class interests. #Bernie2020
Us: "Eat the rich!"
Trump: "Elect the rich?"
Us: "EAT the rich!"
Steyer: "Elect the rich?"
Us: "EAT THE RICH!"
Bloomberg: "Elect the rich?"
Clearly, wealthy people don't know how to be told no. Especially wealthy white men. Howard Schultz, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, note for you all.
Nothing is less endearing to the Democratic base than trying to buy your way past devoted women & people of color public servants.

Bullock seizes on the Steyer story, saying, "First he buys his way onto the debate stage and now Tom Steyer’s trying to buy endorsements."
Steyer, Bullock argues, "proves why it’s so important to get Big Money out of our elections."
Here is the story: https://t.co/Tx6hwY6W2n
Tom Steyer aide reportedly offered Iowa politicians money in exchange for a presidential endorsement https://t.co/mYwV2P12mv
These billionaires could, of course, do some actual good not by running for president, but by contributing to the Democrats' efforts to keep the House and retake the Senate. Steyer has already wasted over 47 million on his pointless campaign.
People who think Tom Steyer is too poor
