Dream Team or Democrat Nightmare?
If you’ve already switched from Drudge to the Bongino Report, you may have missed this morning’s Drudge Report headline: “EXCLUSIVE: BLOOMBERG CONSIDERS HILLARY RUNNING MATE.”
It’s unsubstantiated beyond Drudge claiming it, but the reactions to this bizarre announcement (by Drudge, not—yet?—by Bloomberg or his campaign) are hilarious.
Matt Drudge, the famous news aggregator and internet provocateur, shattered the lull of an otherwise calm Saturday morning with a big-if-true bombshell: “EXCLUSIVE: BLOOMBERG CONSIDERS HILLARY RUNNING MATE.”
“Sources close to Bloomberg campaign tell DRUDGE REPORT that candidate is considering Hillary as running mate, after their polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be a formidable force…,” the tweet continued, pointing to Drudge’s eponymous website, where the scoop was played in underlined type above the scroll and a bright-red all-caps headline.
Here’s Drudge’s tweet (note, he usually deletes his tweets within hours, so the tweet is followed by the screengrab of it):
The jokes almost write themselves.
The white super rich ticket because the little guy!

“Operation Screw Bernie 2.0” may have its first Medal of Honor recipient: Mike Bloomberg for courageously sacrificing his own life by jumping on a grenade. #TopMinion

Mini-Mike considering asking Hillary to be his running mate. Does he have a terminal illness or is this simply a deathwish?
