The Mini-Mike And Crooked Ticket? Report Says Bloomberg Wants Hillary For His Running Mate

Written by K. Walker on February 15, 2020

Is this a real thing or another one of Bloomberg’s strange marketing ploys?

After all, we’ve seen that he’s used an incomprehensible amount of money on ads of all sorts. Multiple-millions of dollars and various marketing strategies at his media-outlet-owning disposal. And he’s gaining momentum.

But this is free advertising because everyone will want to report on a possible Trump Vs. Hillary 2.0. It’s smart, really.

So, on Saturday, an unnamed “source within the Bloomberg campaign” leaked the info to the Drudge Report as an “exclusive.” This was clearly designed as red meat to conservative outlets who would be quick to report on it. It was the big header on Drudge, a (formerly?) right-leaning news aggregator.

Unsurprisingly, the news spread like wildfire.

According to the New York Post, internal polling by the Bloomberg campaign found that the duo “would be a formidable force” to defeat President Trump in November.

It seems like the Hildebeest isn’t so keen on a demotion, however.

Clinton, who lost her 2016 White House bid to Trump despite winning the popular vote, said last week that she would “probably” not accept an offer to run as another Democrat’s veep.

“I never say never because I believe in serving my country,” she told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. “But it’s never going to happen.”

News agencies are diligently reporting that there are Constitutional problems with Bloomberg choosing Crooked Hillary — they both reside in New York.

Under the Twelfth Amendment to the US Constitution, which provides the procedure for electing the president and vice-president, it states that the two people could not both inhabit the same state as the elector.

The former mayor of New York apparently has a plan for that — he might follow President Trump to make his official residence in Florida, or he may make it Colorado, both states where Bloomberg owns homes.

Bloomberg, 78, reportedly said he’d go so far as to move out of New York, where Clinton lives, to states like Colorado or Florida, so that they are not living in the same state during the 2020 race.

After entering the race later than his opponents, Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, is running for the Democratic nomination for president.

The Twelfth Amendment is the least of Bloomberg’s problems, though.

Michael Bloomberg is clearly not thinking this through.

There are two major issues that the Media(D) is not reporting.

1. Bernie Supporters

Imagine what the Bernie Bros would think of this development! They were so upset with the DNC in 2016 rigging the primary in Hillary’s favor.

They’re already upset with the DNC’s role in the Iowa Caucus Circus and the elevation of other candidates like Buttigieg and Klobuchar.

As we’ve seen by the Project Veritas videos, Bernie supporters are willing to toss people in gulags if they dare disagree with the “revolution.” What happens if the “revolution” fails? They’ll burn down the Democratic party. There is a certain level of rebelliousness and willingness within Bernie’s supporters to do that very thing.

Don’t forget that AOC and 3/4 of the Squad are also on the Bernie bandwagon. AOC has refused to pay her DCCC fees because she’s funding her own PACs to support sufficiently “progressive” candidates. She’s just not keen on those damned “moderates.”

If Bernie loses the primary again, he has enough momentum and support that he could take the option of running as an Independent and that would be the nail in the coffin of the Democratic Party — it would force a split that has long been coming.

2. Hillary Clinton

Who in their right mind would willingly put themselves as that “one heartbeat away” between Hillary and the Oval Office?

A Canadian news aggregator, Small Dead Animals, reported the news with the headline “Bloomberg Didn’t Kill Himself” and the subhead, “The Clinton Dirt Nap Maneuver.” Bravo, to those crazy Canucks for the enviable headline and subhead! Spectacular stuff right there. (I’m completely jealous.)

All that said, my advice to Mini Mike is….

Not that I want the man finding himself “Epsteined,” it’s just that it would be fantastic fun for those of us that write political commentary. Everywhere would have headlines like that one from Small Dead Animals and that would make 2020 the Best Year Ever.

If Bloomberg won the nomination and selected Hillary to be on the ticket, it would be the most entertaining race for right-wing political junkies. The Democratic Party would implode, Bernie Bros would vote Trump, Hillary would be humiliated yet again, and we would all she how Bloomberg falls short of the heights of widespread electoral success that President Trump will enjoy as he’s reelected.

I don’t even care that this photo might be shopped, it’s still hilarious.
