Bloomberg, Bloomberg the mirror responded, despite Democrats’ baseless certainty the answer would be Trump. Just last week, audio emerged of comments Bloomberg said about his controversial stop and frisk policy saying essentially cops need to be sent to minority neighborhoods because that is where all the crime is, and that criminals fit into a “copy and repeat” formula of young minority males.
Just in case any democrats trying to choose their preferred candidate were not turned off by Bloomberg’s racist comments, perhaps his sexist ones will do the trick. Apparently, the former New York City Mayor has a not so secret reputation for saying incredibly vulgar and demeaning things about women. Not only did Bloomberg say these things out loud with zero pushback, but his minions humored him by turning his statements into a “compilation titled ‘Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg.”
The compilation of misogynistic quotes was not used to teach Bloomberg any moral lesson; rather they were turned into “a gag gift presented to him for his birthday in 1990 and which was published by the Washington Post” reported Fox News. There is no better way to celebrate a man’s birthday than to present him with all the clever and offensive lines he had come up with about women to date.
According to Fox News, “the collection of statements bears an editor’s note that says, ‘yes, these are actual quotes. No, nothing has been embellished or exaggerated. And yes, some things were too outrageous to include.” So, what made the PG version of the 34-page booklet? “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s” was one quote.
Additional entries suggest the mayor made have had quite an oral fixation, having once supposedly said, “what do I want? I want an exclusive, 10-year contract, an automatic extension, and I want you to pay me. And I want a bl—job from [name redacted]. Have you seen [name redacted] lately? Not bad for 50.” Another report suggests when discussing his company’s Bloomberg terminal, he said, “it will do everything, including giving you a bl—job. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business.”
It gets worse. “among allegations against Bloomberg was an incident where a female employee announced she was pregnant, and Bloomberg allegedly reacted by saying, ‘kill it!” The Post also published a report detailing allegations from lawsuits and depositions against Bloomberg. Witness interviews were included which clearly demonstrated the man had a “pattern and practice of sexual harassment, sexual degradation of women and discrimination.”
