Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped New York Billionaire Mike Bloomberg on social media Thursday; calling for “restorative justice” to heal the wounds from “stop and frisk” police procedures.
“Will people get their records expunged? Will young people sucked into the spiderweb of incarceration get their lives back? Unless there is restorative justice, there is no ‘moving on’ from Stop & Frisk. It’s just a billionaire trying to cover up authoritarian & racist policy,” posted AOC.

Sean Hannity weighed-in Wednesday night on billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s racially-charged comments regarding his ‘Stop and Frisk’ policy; saying his campaign is now in full-fledged “damage control” mode.
“Bloomberg’s campaign is in full on damage control after footage surfaced of his racially charged remarks on minorities, Stop and Frisk, and more,” said Hannity.
“It’s pretty horrendous to be honest with you,” said one New York City resident. “You think it’s just that easy that we can be xeroxed, copied? It’s going too far back in a historical context.”
“Now you want to apologize and say you’re sorry? After you humiliated our community? We don’t want your apology, we don’t want you as our President,” said another.

BLOOMBERG 2020? Michael Bloomberg to Drop $5 MILLION Ad Blitz on Eve of Election
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg took another step towards his potential showdown with President Trump in 2020; announcing his plan to release a $5 million advertising blitz on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections.
“Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City who is considering a 2020 presidential campaign, took another step closer to that possibility Sunday with a $5 million national advertising effort that encourages voters to support Democrats in Tuesday’s midterm elections — and offers Bloomberg’s centrist politics as a counter to President Trump,” writes the Washington Post .
“Americans are neither naive nor heartless,” Bloomberg says in the ad. “We know that we can be a nation of immigrants while also securing our borders.”
Bloomberg raised eyebrows across the country weeks ago when he announced he had officially re-registered as a Democrat; paving the way for his potential run for the White House.

BLOOMBERG BOOTED: Trump Campaign Bans Bloomberg Reporters from Future Events
President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign revoked the press credentials of reporters working for Bloomberg News Monday; citing the organization’s decision to investigate the White House while ignoring their owner.
“Bloomberg News announced last week that it wouldn’t investigate its namesake owner, Mike Bloomberg, while he runs for president, or any other Democratic presidential candidate for that matter, but would continue to investigate President Trump,” reports Fox News.
“The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong,” campaign manager Brad Parscale wrote in a statement. “Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical reporting on President Trump.”
“Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events,” Parscale wrote. “We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision.”
