While appearing on Fox News, Mollie Hemingway of “The Federalist” argued Bloomberg’s failure to buy the election after spending hundreds of millions hurts Democrats claims that Russians caused Donald Trump to win with “a couple hundred thousand dollars in barely literate Facebook ads”
We had years where people were saying a couple hundred thousand dollars in barely literate Facebook ads from Russians caused Donald Trump to win. Here you had a guy spend nearly $1 billion and he went nowhere. It’s a humiliating defeat for Michael Bloomberg.
So Russians influenced the election with $200,000, or $300,000 in Facebook ads? And Mike Bloomberg couldn’t get more than 50 delegates with $600 million dollars?
And this hurts Bernie Sanders’s message, too, because he likes to say the billionaires control everything. Clearly Bloomberg having all this money didn’t do as much for him as Biden having the media and the establishment behind him. I would pick media and establishment over millions all day.
