A new national Zogby Analytics poll has billionaire Michael Bloomberg leapfrogging over former VP Biden to take 2nd place in the Democrat primary race.
Bernie Sanders still leads but by only a 4% margin between himself and Bloomberg.
Meanwhile 2 videos being circulated on social media of Bloomberg are causing a stir.
In one newly surfaced video, 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg implies medical care should be denied to 95 year olds with prostate cancer because there’s no point.
He also says a young person in the same situation should be given care.
If you show up with prostate cancer, you’re 95 years old, [we] should say go and enjoy, you’ve lived a long life, there’s no cure
We can’t do anything. If you’re a young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not willing to do that, yet.
“If you show up with prostate cancer & you’re 95 years old, we should say…there’s no cure, we can’t do anything.”

One Twitter user responded “Wondering if he would feel the same if HE were the 95 year-old with cancer.”

In another video, per TCO, 2020 Candidate Michael Bloomberg claims farming does not require much intelligence “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer.”
“People for Bernie” responded on Twitter to the video, writing:
“Time and time again we see Bloomberg insulting the middle class and the working class, union members and not yet union members
Maybe it’s time for pundits to stop pretending he’s just another candidate
Bloomberg is an oligarch spending his play money to buy the White House”

I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer.
It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that. Then we had 300 years of the industrial society.
You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow and you can have a job. And we created a lot of jobs. At one point, 98 percent of the world worked in agriculture, now it’s 2 percent in the United States.
