Rupert Murdoch Tweets Support For Bloomberg Run

posted on January 29, 2016

Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said that he will decide by March whether to enter the 2016 presidential race. While he claims his decision will depend on whether any of the candidates he considers “extreme” win their early primaries, several high-profile individuals have come out encouraging him to enter sooner rather than later, including News Corp founder Rupert Murdoch. 

On Jan. 23, Murdoch tweeted the following words of encouragement: “Allegedly Bloomberg again considering running. If he does, may hurt Clinton more than Trump. Seems 2016 the year for populists.” His next post, on Wednesday, even hinted at desperation: “This is Bloomberg’s last chance. You never know until your hat is in the ring! Events change everything, especially during elections.” 

If Bloomberg does decide to run, we hope he explains how he could possibly be less “extreme” than the other candidates, given his penchant for pushing nanny-state policies and hating the Second Amendment.
