Longtime Clinton insider and senior advisor to NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg offered some free advice to Democrats Wednesday, urging the liberal legislators to avoid Hollywood entirely; saying “combative rhetoric” does nothing to help average Americans.
Left-leaning strategist Doug Schoen was commenting on A-list actor Robert De Niro’s vicious attacks on the President during an award ceremony over the weekend, saying 2018 midterm hopefuls should “86 Hollywood.”
“Democrats need to 86 Hollywood…This type of combative rhetoric does nothing for Americans,” he tweeted.

Schoen’s comments come as the Democratic “blue wave” predicted by pundits across the country continues to lose steam, with recent polls showing the once 15 point lead now evaporating to a one point deficit.
BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Democrat Edge EVAPORATES Heading into Summer
The Democrats’ double-digit lead continued to crash and burn this week, with new polls showing the GOP has either erased the liberal advantage or is actually beating their left-wing opponents on generic ballots.
The lead -once as high as 18 points- is all but gone on ballots asking voters if they preferred Democrats or Republicans; raising serious questions about the overly-hyped “blue wave” expected to sweep Congress this fall.
Late last year, Liberal Congressman Ted Lieu warned of a Democrat “megatsunami” heading into the midterm.

Those predictions may turn out to be little more than wishful thinking, with a new Reuters poll showing Republicans enjoying a 2% edge over their Democratic opponents.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Magazine Admits Democrats Are ‘BLOWING’ Midterms
The media’s over-hyped prediction of a Democratic “blue wave” this fall continued to crash and burn this week, with a prominent magazine admitting the liberal legislators are totally “blowing” the 2018 midterm elections.
The Week published an article Thursday titled, “Democrats are totally blowing it,” where the author blasts the left-wing lawmakers for acting like “simpering” dealmakers who are “barely muddling” towards an election disaster.
“Democrats should clean up in the midterms. Instead, they’re barely muddling through,” writes the author.
“Democrats, you had this. If you blow it with an inability to sustain a brawl for more than six months, rest assured: You will be replaced with other lawmakers who can,” he adds.
