Why is Bloomberg aiding Bernie Sanders?

I thought Bloomberg feared Sanders. It appears he is in cahoots with him to steal votes from Joe Biden.

1. Bloomberg thought Biden would peter out. Since the opposite has happened, Bloomberg will bow out

 

...after Super Tuesday.

9. I hope you're right

 

I suspect Bloomberg is in it for Bloomberg. Being a billionaire boggles your brain

2. I've missed this--

 

could you please direct me to a headline?
(So far today I've kind of been in Does The Pope Have Coronavirus and Biden's Ahead--missing many things. Thanks.)

6. But Bloomberg is supposed to:

 

A.) Fear Bernie
B.) Be Smart

If A and B are true, then he can see staying in helps Bernie and brings that dreaded socialism closer to reality. Why does he stay in? Entitlement? Ego? Desire?

I'm fine with Bernie. I may vote Bernie.

I DO NOT understand Bloomberg.

10. Well, Bloomberg's thinking is beyond me as well.

 

He may have been liked by New York City voters, but I don't think the country at large cares much for him. He could be spending his money in far better ways for the country. I would expect him to drop out after Super Tuesday.

But that may not be true. His supporters aren't all Biden.
