Douglas Endorses Bloomberg For President

January 21, 2020 | 21 Comments

Michael Douglas has offered his official endorsement of Michael Bloomberg for U.S. President, calling the former New York City mayor “one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections.”

Both men have strong connections to Bermuda, Mr Douglas’ mother is Bermudian and both he and Mr Bloomberg have both spent considerable time on the island.

A story on People.com said, “Michael Douglas wants to see former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg in the White House.

“On Tuesday morning the Academy Award-winning actor officially endorsed Bloomberg in the 2020 election, telling People that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy.

“I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” says Douglas, 75.

“In his view, Bloomberg offers “a rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.”

“Bloomberg, 77, is the billionaire head of his eponymous media and financial company. He previously spent three terms as the mayor of N.Y.C., from 2002 to 2013.

“Douglas says criticism or concern about Bloomberg’s spending — what others in the race have contended is essentially an effort to buy himself voters in lieu of persuading them through campaigning — is “a little unfair.”

“The fact that he doesn’t need people to pay for his campaign means that he doesn’t owe anybody,” Douglas says. “Do I hope eventually that money in political campaigns will become a thing of the past? Certainly. I think Mike would be one of the first ones to say that.”

    • Not in favour of Bloomberg. Stop and frisk, That was aimed at Black Men. Period! He is just as racist as Trump de Frump!!

        Obama likes gays, white people and foreigners…how do you reconcile that with your hatred for these three groups?

        • Scientist says:

          ….but they don’t like him anymore thus the very reason Trump won and will win again.

          • saud says:

            Re read for comprehension.

            Bermudians love Obama, but hate gays, foreigners…and the minority population.
            The majority of the Bermudian electorate align with trumps republicans.

            The hypocrisy is palpable.

      • Question says:

        Oh of course. You’re perfectly entitled to be a criminal.

    Michael Douglas and Michael Bloomberg – two outstanding supporters of Bermuda. Thank you both for your contributions to our Island. I certainly endorse Michael Bloomberg as President of the USA.

  4. JAYBIRD says:

    Wow – Michael Douglas endorsing Michael Bloomberg for President of the USA. That should seal the deal…

    • CHRIS says:

      I’m not a fan of ‘celebrities’ endorsing politicians or raging against them. i’m sure this was reported here because M D is a Bermudian and MB is a resident. that’s all.

  5. Stan Ray says:

    Michael Bloomberg is no racists.
    If you do your homework you will come to the same conclusion.
    There is no better candidate qualified to beat Trump. Period.
