The booklet was produced by Elisabeth DeMarse, who worked as Bloomberg's chief marketing officer.

“Yes, these are all actual quotes,” she wrote in her introduction. “No, nothing has been embellished or exaggerated.”

1. It's odd that some are celebrating his tweets

 

when all they tell me is he's still the same person who is quoted in that book.

2. Yes! He is buying endorsements like crazy and the amount of money is obscene.

 

I can't even put into words how distraught I am over his acceptance here. I may need to take a break.

3. I totally get that

 

Something I have noticed in my other social media is a reactivation of Warren supporters among friends who had been lying low during the primary.

11. He's deplorable. More quotes:

Bloomberg is one of Donald Trump’s social peers, but he also shares Trump’s record of crassly sexist commentary. In fact, there’s even video of Trump and Bloomberg ogling women together at a hot dog contest, with Bloomberg commenting on their appearance. Gawker rounded up some lowlights of Bloomberg’s publicly sexist comments:

Democratic city councilwoman Christine Quinn reported that at a party, “Bloomberg gestured toward a woman in a very tight floor-length gown standing nearby and said, “Look at the ass on her."

“If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s.”

“Kill it!” Bloomberg allegedly said to one of his employees when she informed him she was pregnant. 

“What, is the guy dumb and blind? What the hell is he marrying you for?” Bloomberg replied upon hearing an employee was engaged, suggesting the woman’s father must have paid her fiancé to marry her.

“I’d do her” Bloomberg admitted saying in regard to an employee. When asked about it, said he thought “do” meant be friends with. 

“Keep him happy with a good [oral sex],” he is alleged to have told a female employee regarding her boyfriend. 

“I’d do that piece of meat.” When Bloomberg was asked about this, he replied that he “didn’t recall” using the specific term “meat.” 

“If you want to know if somebody is a good salesman, give them the job of going to the Midwest and picking a town and selling to that town the concept that some man wearing a dress should be in a locker room with their daughter,” Bloomberg said about transgender people.

In a deposition, Bloomberg even testified that he wouldn’t believe a rape allegation unless there was an “unimpeachable third party witness.”

Councilmember Quinn said that he offered “unsolicited commentary on her choice of flats over high heels or waiting too long to dye her hair.” 

17 women have filed lawsuits over the years against Bloomberg’s company, alleging a “notoriously sexist and hostile work environment” with Bloomberg himself having personally “encouraged this type of sexist and sexually charged behavior.” According to court records, Bloomberg “would gawk at women and say about their legs, ‘I like that,’” and “defended his attitude by saying it keeps him young.” The list of sexist and crass comments goes on and on, and it’s all just gross.


Overall turnout would be down, 3rd party voting would be up, and Trump would win with ease.
