‘Fox & Friends’: Michael Bloomberg Is ‘Literally Trying to Buy the Presidency’

The hosts of Fox & Friends started Monday morning by criticizing former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The billionaire has entered the Democratic presidential race and the Fox News hosts took a dim view of him, even attacking his use of money.

“Nobody doubts his competence as a businessman,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said. “No-one doubts his competence as someone to run an organization. He does have the experience to run a city. My feeling is, I just don’t understand what is now.”

“What did he see in Joe Biden? What did he not see in the field that makes him think at number 17, giving you up small state primary runs, any presence in the Iowa caucus, I can do it? And he’s gonna do it with money without taking any donations. He’s gonna do it attacking Trump, not the other 16 Dems.”

“And the other candidates have immediately jumped on him already for not only what they argue is buying the presidency or attempt to buy presidency, but enormous amount of money he has spent on his ad blitz,” guest host Emily Compagno said.

“$34 million this week,” co-host Steve Doocy said.

“Even one of his closest advisers, Howard Wolfson, said he’s going to spend whatever it takes because he believes the stakes couldn’t be higher,” Compagno said. “So confirming the fact that he’s literally trying to buy the presidency.”

The Fox hosts did not point out the President Donald Trump is a billionaire.
