If you’re wondering when a video will be unearthed of presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg insulting your sex or ethnicity, be patient. He’s working his way through the alphabet. Currently, he is stuck on “b,” having returned to blacks (plus, as a bonus Latinos).
Having taken heat last week for remarks to the effect that male minorities, ages 16 to 25, are responsible for “25% of your murders,” a video from 2011 has him doubling down. Watch:
Bloomberg says many 'black and Latino males' don't 'know how to find jobs,’ & ‘don’t know how to behave in the workplace,' in newly uncovered 2011 video

Bloomie has apologized mulitple times for his remarks relating to “stop and frisk,” maintaining that his view of the program was wrongheaded. It’s unclear how he plans to wriggle out of this newest revelation.
Remarkably, in spite of his ugly comments about minorities, women, and farmers and factory workers, the former New York City mayor continues to inch his way upward in the polls. Today’s RealClear Politics national average shows him in third place at 14.6% He trails Joe Biden, now at 17.5%, by only a few percentage points. Although front-runner Bernie Sanders, at 24.8%, still leads Bloomberg by a double-digit margin, pundits are now speculating that he may be the Democrats’ answered prayer.
Even conservative columnist Peggy Noonan writes:
We are misreading Mike Bloomberg’s race for the Democratic presidential nomination. The headline right now is not “Billionaire Tries to Buy Party,” and not “Former Republican Struggles With Stop-and-Frisk History.” The headline is: “He Could Do This. Uphill, but He Could Win.”
She may change her opinion after Bloomie’s opinion from 10 years ago on old farts surfaces.
