Billionaire Mike Bloomberg blasted millionaire Bernie Sanders on social media over the weekend; saying his “angry army” on the internet isn’t the kind of “energy” needed to defeat Donald Trump in 2020.
“We need to unite to defeat Trump in November. This type of ‘energy’ is not going to get us there,” posted Bloomberg along with his video clip.

“That’ll get us through the first few months,” said a top Bloomberg political advisor.
“Mike spent $100 million in his last New York City election. And you can do the math as you think more broadly but New York City is 3 percent of the national population,” he added. “I’m not suggesting it’s straight math. But I’m suggesting that when Mike Bloomberg is committed to making a difference and seeing something though, generally speaking he’s pretty unabashed in doing so.”

‘IT’S A MOCKERY’: FEC Complaint Filed Against Bloomberg News for Investigating Trump, Not Dems
An official FEC complaint was filed against Bloomberg News this week after owner Michael Bloomberg instructed the outlet to investigate President Trump; not himself or fellow Democrats during the 2020 election.
“The Media Research Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Bloomberg Media and namesake founder Mike Bloomberg for the organization’s decision to investigate President Trump, but not his political opponents,” reports Fox News.
“Bloomberg News announced earlier this month that it wouldn’t investigate Mike Bloomberg while he runs for president, or any other Democratic presidential candidate for that matter, but would continue to investigate Trump,” adds Fox.
“Bloomberg News is making a mockery of legitimate journalism. They have consciously chosen to abandon their journalistic responsibilities in favor of what is politically convenient,” MRC president Brent Bozell said in a statement.
“This is a public declaration that Bloomberg’s newsroom is adopting media bias as an official policy,” Bozell continued. “This is not only categorically unethical, but potentially illegal, which is why we are calling for an investigation.”
