Billionaire Mike Bloomberg spoke at a Fox News Town Hall event Monday night just hours before the Super Tuesday primaries; saying his use of a private jet is not hypocritical because he travels to eliminate coal jobs across the country.
“You’ve been very passionate about climate change. But, several folks out there want to know how you can fly around on private jets, take your jet to Bermuda to play golf, and still be such a strong proponent of climate change. Is that hypocrisy?” asked the moderators.

“The answer is that I spend an awful lot of time flying around the country, flying around the world working on climate change. We have closed an awful lot of coal-fired power plants, and worked to try and train coal miners to get other jobs,” said Bloomberg.

AMERICA UNLEASHED: USA Becomes ‘Net Exporter’ of Oil for FIRST TIME in 75 YEARS
The United States energy industry continued to soar to life under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Senate this week; becoming a “net exporter of oil” for the first time in over 75 years.
“America turned into a net oil exporter last week, breaking 75 years of continued dependence on foreign oil and marking a pivotal — even if likely brief — moment toward what U.S. President Donald Trump has branded as ‘energy independence,’” writes Bloomberg.
The American transformation from a net importer to exporter is a direct result of the expanding US oil industry; with “thousands of new wells” appearing in Texas, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania.
“The shale revolution has transformed oil wildcatters into billionaires and the U.S. into the world’s largest petroleum producer, surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia,” adds the article.

AOC EXPLODES: Ocasio-Cortez TRASHES Bloomberg, Calls for ‘Restorative Justice’ to Fix His ‘Racist Policies’
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.
