Bloomberg self-trolls and it’s epic

When we first saw the new Bloomberg billboards scrolling through social media on Friday,it seemed as if someone out there was meme-ing Bloomberg.

I.e., take the most anti-hip candidate in history, choose a target for him (in this case, Trump), and produce samples of the utterly oblivious billboards the candidate would come up with.  Send them out for a spin around Instagram and Twitter for a good laugh. Yuk yuk. TGIF!

Then we discovered these are Bloomberg’s anti-Trump billboards.  His campaign apparently had them waiting for Trump in Phoenix this week.  (The displays are digital; it looks like this is one sign board with three messages cycling through on it.)

It seems they’re so proud of the billboards, they couldn’t let time and tide harvest some gratifying notices for them.  Phone-camera Nation was moving too slowly.  So they posted their dunks on The Donald themselves, to get things started.

Trending: People want to know who’s delivering pallets of bricks to protest sites across the U.S.

You couldn’t achieve this level of self-trolling by any natural means.  It does make one reflect uneasily on the likely result if Bloomberg decided to troll Putin or Xi. (RELATED: Bloomberg’s latest weapon against Trump? A dancing gingerbread man)

Here’s one final one Team Bloomberg neglected to post. It comes courtesy of courtesy of LU Staff. No charge.
