  1. It’s not an oligarch’s job to be cool. It’s their job to buy and own those who’s job in turn is to make them appear cool and viable – not excluding major media platforms in general.

  2. Not much in the USA that doesn’t carry a price tag these days.

    • You can’t buy a Trump collusion narrative that’s plausable.

    • Dave Schultz That is because the Mob-Boss-in-Chief has buried all the investigations right next to democracy.

    • @Sean Patrick I think that is his point xD

      @Dave Schultz No need to buy one. The best one is free and true. Can’t get better than that. So….
      So…. somewhere in thos 140+ contacts between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, Manafort gave Russian intel sensitive polling info on where they should most focus their interference and they did! And guess what? The Russians proved something that we’ve all suspected for quite a while: advertising works and massive advertising works massively.
      That’s right. No need to buy any collusion narrative. Just go for the one that’s True…and free. Russia helped Trump get elected and therefore Trump is not a legitimate president.
      If you have more questions, just lt us know.

  3. Paying an influencer to post something positive about your campaign/candidate should NOT be considered an endorsement. Saying that a paid influencer wouldn’t endorse a candidate unless they really believed in them with a straight face on television DOES make one a political hack however.
    ….and what Bloomberg is doing is not the same as Bernie “just with a little money behind it”. It’s the exact opposite. It’s like buying friends vs developing genuine friendships?

    • Remember Trump paid a lot of people to stand around and applaud when he came down the escalator 4 years ago. His Russian buddies supported him online during the last campaign, Not To Mention “Russia. If. You. Are. Listening.” And 4 hours later Russia (who was listening) Hacked the DNA.

    Mr Bloomberg buy Trump tower rename it Obamas place would that not be fun

  5. I’m glad that I have become a social worker. A job where I can actually try and help others instead of having to sell myself out to make a guy like Bloomberg look good. I’ll never be rich but I’ll always be able to face myself in the mirror without having to puke.

    • @Dave Schultz He´s only making life better for his billionaire friends and worse for pretty much everyone else.

    • Good on you. I hope you’re not Clinical.

    • @Dave Schultz There are no or very few Social Workers in my state. They have sold out and become counselors.

    • Banana Joe
      Congrats on your role in life, but being a billionaire is not a sin, it’s abuse of law, power and being a criminal is the harm to the public. If everyone was a social worker we would have the economy of a second world country/ economy. Nothing wrong with making money. It’s ironic how wealth was vilified when Romney was running but accepted when trump was running. This country chose to vilify a good decent man in 12 but chose a villain and a con man in 16. Many thanks to Obama, who said Hillary is likable enough and made fun of Romney’s spot on assessment of the geopolitical threat to the country. Well hindsight is 20/20 if Hillary won 08 or Romney won 12 we would have a different and better country than we have now. In other words the world would have been better off if Obama was not elected. He was not ready to be president and he opened the door for trumpism.

  6. It’s what devils do to deceive people ASK TRUMP…

  7. Like “authentic” matters, duh. Stupid reporters.

  8. Ohh my goodddddd!!! It is so interestiniinnngggg!!

  9. Suddenly they like meme’s? 🤣

  10. I still laugh hysterically at the t’rump fanboy memes of him with a six pack and barrel chest when in reality he is so unhealthy and fat, his dumps take 10-15 flushes to clear the bowl. 🚽 💦 💦 💦 💦 💦 💦

  11. Bottom line: we are currently living in the fake world and even worse, it’s working. Trump, Bloomberg, fox, all fake

    Sounds like Bloomberg is trying to recreate what Bernie has, but with Bernie it was a natural process.

    Bloomberg is a joke

      @David Hale Please express your ignorance in silence.

    • @David Hale
      You should check out Joe rogan Enter viewing Bernie Sanders then you can get a idea of what democratic socialism really is..

    • David Hale maybe it takes a communist to get rid of a Fascist

      @Ruina Imperii Bernie isn’t the kind of Socialist he’s talking about. He’s just so full of Trump propaganda that’s it running out his ears. He even thinks that the president of Trump “university” is going to save America. Who can be that stupid? To trust a Federal court convicted fraudster!

    Sorry no rich guy for me i will stick with Sanders and the public.

  17. Who would thought that making a meme would land you a job 🤷🏾‍♂️

  18. What would social media look like if the law required every post to include a declaration if the poster was being paid or were a volunteer for a candidate…?

  19. $$$$ does NOT buy TRUST in We the People!

  20. “I put Lamborghini doors on the Escalade”

    Most racist comment I’ve ever heard.
