Only 45 People Attend Bloomberg Rally With Judge Judy

Only 45 People Attend Bloomberg Rally With Judge Judy

The Bloomberg campaign insists the rally had 130 attendees.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg held a rally in San Antonio, TX, with Judge Judy.

However, despite spamming every commercial break over the weekend, only 45 people attended the rally.

From The New York Post:

“Unlike everyone else in this race, I think what’s important is beating Donald Trump,” he told about 45 supporters at a restaurant in San Antonio.

Protesters toting Trump 2020 and U.S. flags could be spotted through the eatery’s windows.

TV’s Judge Judy Sheindlin introduced Bloomberg with a dig at the left-wing Democrats running for the nomination.

“Those that are touting revolution in this country are wrong,” she said. “It’s the best country on earth … It should have the greatest president.”

In a 13-minute stump speech, Bloomberg touted his efforts to raise teacher salaries and cut carbon emissions during his three terms as New York’s mayor.

“America is not New York, I understand that,” he acknowledged. “It’s getting things done rather than partisan talking.”

The Bloomberg campaign told The Washington Examiner that 130 attended the rally. The adviser also claimed “more than 700 people attended Bloomberg events throughout the day.”

Bloomberg has taken a different route than the other Democratic candidates. While they campaign in Iowa, Bloomberg is riding his bus around Texas.

    Looks like billionaires (well Judge Judy is pretty close) stick together. I liked him as mayor, but so far as a candidate for Prez, he is totally uninspiring.

    I would love to see Trump hold a rally in the same city, same time as every democratic debate or event. That might even make the democrats laugh, or cry.. ROFLOL

We appreciate any cash Mini-Mike has dropped in Texas, as long as it isn’t supporting his gun grabbing agenda. Or, for that matter, any of his other totalitarian instincts (e.g. determining the volume of our drinks). Running for the Socialist-Democrat nomination isn’t supporting his totalitarian instincts because he has less of a chance than the proverbial snowball of getting the nomination (well, unless there isn’t a first vote winner, then he may be able to buy the nomination for whatever remainder, after advertising buys, of the billion USD he claims to have decided to spend to “win” the nomination.

    Sorry, that should have been closed parens: (well, unless there isn’t a first vote winner, then he may be able to buy the nomination for whatever remainder, after advertising buys, of the billion USD he claims to have decided to spend to “win” the nomination).

      Is there any candidate running on a platform of adding an edit function and moving the up/down vote links further apart on LI?!?

    I don’t see Big Gulp Bloomberg getting much traction in the home of Buc-ees, despite being in bed (or owning) much of Texas’ liberal media outlets.

I wonder how much $$$ Mike gave to each of the 45 “paid supporters” that showed up?

Saw Bloomberg commercials ad nauseam during the football playoffs this weekend. The guy is just p!ssing away his money over his own vanity. The Dems aren’t going to vote from him over the crazies.

    Joe-dallas in reply to Ghost Rider. | January 13, 2020 at 10:31 am

    I saw / listened to several of his ads over the last couple of weeks. The ads come across as generally positive, citing the good economy, millions of jobs created under his leadership (though not sure how a mayor can create jobs in the private sector – except crony jobs). His ads would generally appeal to the democrats that are not far left and to the independents. Though , those voters dont decide the primary.

    The funny thing is every time one of those ads would start I would think it was a Pro-Trump ad citing the disaster that was Obamacare. Then it would cut to Bloomberg and I’m thinking this ad is not going to do what he thinks it will.

    Hulu is absolutely RIDDLED with them – easily 4 out of 5. And you can’t skip them after a few seconds. I’ve become a master of the mute button.

    They can’t be any worse than the Steyer ads I keep seeing. Dry doesn’t begin to describe them, although I do get a chuckle when he talks about the “criminal in the White House”.

Judge Judy and Mikey Bloomberg, I haven’t seen that much pompous ass in one place since Larry King interviewed Perot and AlGore.

    gonzotx in reply to Romey. | January 13, 2020 at 11:04 am

    Perot was the real thing and should have won, unfortunately his strong run gave us the Clintons

      txvet2 in reply to gonzotx. | January 13, 2020 at 12:06 pm

      Hate to disagree, but Perot hated the Bushes, and his apparent intent was to pull enough Bush-hating Republican votes to elect Clinton. When it looked like he might actually pull enough votes to win himself, he backed off.

He would’ve had more of a turnout if there were going to be some groundhogs (woodchucks) there. Maybe the ones from the GEICO ads?

I’m always astonished at the list of issues Trump has tackled head on.

North Korea
Child sex trafficking

    michaelalan in reply to Petrushka. | January 15, 2020 at 1:51 pm

    Petrushka.. Nobody will talk about this. Be sure the media will not. There is an average of 2-3000 sealed indictments every year. The count for sealed indictments is now 139,000 and growing monthly. 136,000 more than normal and the media reports NOTHING. Under Obama this would be 24/7 news. I have my guess what most of the charges will be…. Have you noticed the known Hollywood p/e/d/o/s scream the loudest against Trump !! Hmmmm??

Again DOmmburg is only in the race for one reason and that not to win.

Let’s say Bloomberg somehow buys his way to get the Dem nomination. As I see it, he’s still dead in the water.
He won’t get the black vote.
He won’t get the progressive voters.
He won’t get the Biden voters.
Bloomberg doesn’t even have the Hollywood darlings who seem to flock around Buttigieg.
That leaves the thirty people who were at his rally and Judge Judy.

I would LOVE to see Mike fall flat on his face to Trump!!!!

Dear Bloomberg, what incentive is there to vote for you when you oppose my peaceful and lawful inalienable rights? I do not care to live as you wish. You and Judge Judy can get bent 🙂

43 of them were there to see Judge Judy

45…what a great number.

No wonder he didn’t want to report it.

I wonder when CNN, MSNBC, Politifact, etc. will check this.

Former Judge Judith Sheindlin, all decked out as a native New Yorker thinks appropriate for Texas. At least until she opens her mouth and New York City spews forth.

Full disclosure – I have never watched a full episode of her daytime reality soap opera, only seeing it while channel surfing – right on through it.

Bloomberg 2020 slogan: What America really needs in this unprecedented time of crisis is a president who will ban large sodas

When I think of all of the problems in our country that could be helped by the addition of some serious financial support, it astounds me that Steyer and Bloomberg are throwing hundreds of millions of dollars going after Trump.

One doesn’t become super-rich like these guys are by being stupid or financially irresponsible, yet they are just throwing YUGE sums of money away, money that could be put to much better use.

Why? I guess to satisfy their own egos.


    fast182 in reply to tiger66. | January 13, 2020 at 1:16 pm

    I fear that Bloomberg’s got a secondary, and more sinister, goal. He must know that he has a very slim chance to win the presidency, but while he’s campaigning and dumping hundreds of millions of dollars in the process, how much is going to help progressive candidates at the state and local level?

The attendance count was within the margin of error (1000%).

It’s 130 when you add his armed security detail, yes men/women/undecided, and “friends”.

Either way, the restaurant probably lost more business during that time than Bloomberg brought.

LMAO! They insist 130 people attended. Trump draws an easy 17,000 at every rally. Way to go Mikey!

    Dathurtz in reply to RichieD.. | January 13, 2020 at 1:17 pm

    And those people really want to be there. I was amazed by the enthusiasm when Trump came to Monroe, LA. People tried to camp out. People took off work, people waited for hours and hours. People loved it despite the fact the city government (deeply Dem) didn’t provide enough trash cans OR remove the trash. They only allowed 2 kiosks for buying drinks so lines were over an hour. They didn’t even turn on the dang AC (It’s hot here most of the time). And people enthusiastically went and stayed. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.

Dang, who knew Bloomberg had so many cousins!

BTW, I don’t recall a single campaign appearance by his beard.

It’s gotta be tough to find a restaurant in Texas that banned straws and serves quiche and quinoa.

Bloomberg is a sinister figure.
It’s heartbreaking to see judy side with him.

Also surprisong she’s not with PDJT, given her usual common sense.

Sure, as a native Texan I’m going to vote for an arrogant NY media mogul who wants to trash the Bill of Rights and outlaw guns, as his bought minions in Virginia are trying to do. Dream on Mini Bloomers.

He can’t buy a bigger crowd than that? Weak.

“Those that are touting revolution in this country are wrong,” she said. “It’s the best country on earth … It should have the greatest president.”

So then explain why you are aupporting Bloomburg?

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | January 13, 2020 at 4:23 pm

Judge who?

The Friendly Grizzly | January 13, 2020 at 4:25 pm

So, only 45 people? Who is the bigger turn off: Bloomberg himself or that noisy woman with the Fran Drescher accent?

That’s really pitiful.

Prof. J. drew a bigger crowd at his talk in Sharon a couple of weeks ago.

Of course Jacobson does have better ties than Bloomberg was sporting, but that can’t be the entire reason.

Two of the biggest jokes in America that shows money does not buy common sense , patriotism , or intelligence !! Judy is a DOUBLE LIBERAL splitting her time between CA and NY . She is probably telling him how great it would be if she could just sh*t in the streets in NY , but keep the ban in place on drinks over 32 ounces !! LOL Maybe next time they can meet on a public street in Pelosi’s district and both take a dump on a public sidewalk !!

    michaelalan in reply to judgecharlie. | January 15, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Judge you are so right. Sad but true. Liberals/lunatics should be the same word in the dictionary. In CA you cant have plastic straws but they will give you free plastic needles to bang all the heroin you want. Sounds reasonable! How about Cali just passed a law that you can not suspend a student for unruly behavior or for disobeying a teacher.OMG California lawmakers can not have 2 functioning brain cells or the people that keep voting for them!!!

Bloomberg believes he can Buy the nomination with his forturns. We The People must make sure he doesn’t !!

45 should be about the vote count for this ahole.

He is not actually running for president. He just found a way around campaign finance laws and is pouring tons of money into the DNC. He will drop out once he has shored up the coffers.

The low turn out shows there is no news from this article. A liberal (socialist) endorses another liberal. Yawn! Yawn! Yawn! It is what they do. Totally expected.

Two unemployed old people looking for a new job. Both have enough money to burn a wet cat.

I think people (including Bloomberg) think Judge Judy is way more popular than she is. I’d argue that much of her ratings (from which her popularity and “drawing power” are based on) are captive audiences in waiting rooms. It’s either Judge Judy, Maury, Tater & CNN or, if the staff has a say, soaps & Oprah.
