It is insulting that a NYC, wall street billionaire thinks he can buy people's votes for $80 million dollars.

Seriously, just the local NYC elections would eat up $80 million in no time flat.

Good for him though. A fool and their money...

Funny to see folks who claimed a businessman would make a good POTUS whining about a businessman who's FAR more successful than the slacker who's in the White House.

Specifics in this thread? I didn't see any comments related to that by anyone here.

So what? Rick Scott spent approximately $75 million of his own money to get his Florida governorship in 2010 and another $20 million on his reelection in 2014. Who here was upset about that?

Other than the 'soft drink fiasco' and a few other things, I think Bloomberg was a pretty good mayor (certainly much better than DeBlasio). Even given that...and I don't like Trump...I have even less desire to see Bloomberg in the White House than I did Trump. Re a 'businessman' in the White House, Howard Schultz might be better than both of them.
