I wonder if Elizabeth Warren will delight in her own sides’ billionaires’ tears? Liberals love to rail against billionaires buying elections, but there’s increasing evidence that no amount of money can sell a lousy product.
For instance, rich guy and full time Trump hater Tom Steyer recently entered the Democratic Presidential race and bought his way into a debate. He claims to support campaign reform to get big money out of politics. But he currently accounts for 67% of all TV ad spending by all 2020 candidates, and he can’t crack 1% in the polls.
Meanwhile, billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s yet-to-be-announced candidacy is going over with Democratic primary voters like a diaper on a cheese board, but he’s still determined to spend $100 million on anti-Trump Internet ads in four battleground states.
I anxiously await the condemnation from the left for these billionaires attempting to influence the 2020 election with their lavish spending on anti-Trump ads. Personally, while I'm happy for the media outlets who will make big bucks off these fools and their money, I can't help thinking about all the things that could have been done with that money if it had been given to Samaritan’s Purse or Toys For Tots or some good veterans’ organization instead of going to promote the political fantasies of rich egomaniacs.
