Bloomberg on Democratic candidates: "I bought them."

Literally just came out of his mouth.

Still think this man is benign?

29. Yes Bloomberg was instrumental in clawing back the House of Representatives.

Don't know what the other candidates are doing re building us up.

17. I heard it too, needs to be added to the wikipedia entry for Freudian Slip

 

The one good thing these debates are doing is pulling the expensive mask away and showing us the real Bloomberg. We can do much better than him.

14. He did start saying he bought them, and stopped himself.

 

Maybe an innocent slip, or a Freudian one, or he started to say what he honestly believed and caught himself from fully saying it out loud ("whoops, that was an inside thought..."... Regardless, played right into the perception that his path to power is buying it.

A gun vote or a vote on social security is is one thing. But can we believe a candidate has done a complete 180?

Context is important, though we pretty much ignore it around here.

30. Look again at his response in the last debate

 

Regarding NDAs. Seems to me he was starting to say the only complaints were for se....then he goes into the bad jokes defense. Seemed like he was going to say sexual as in sexual harassment.

But the “bought” slip tonight was way more obvious.
