Audio of Mike Bloomberg defending cease and frisk policing towards minorities has the Presidential hopeful on the ropes, and it is drawing one notably wealthy shot … from President Trump.
The audio is reportedly from a 2015 speech the previous NYC Mayor gave for the Aspen Institute … the place he mentioned police concentrating on minorities, and flat-out stated … it is the easiest way to get weapons off the streets.
Bloomberg stated, “95% of your murders, murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city.”
The billionaire went on to elucidate that almost all of cops are deployed in minority neighborhoods “because that’s where all the crime is. And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.” He stated it is the easiest way to discourage children from carrying weapons as a result of they will not wish to get busted.
In fact, the Democratic candidate for Prez is getting skewered on social media … and that features a shot from the Commander-in-Tweet. Early Tuesday President Trump retweeted the audio with the caption, “WOW. BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST!”
If that hits you as kinda hypocritical, apparently it additionally did for somebody in the White Home — who might need reminded Prez Trump about his immigration insurance policies. The tweet was deleted.
We have reached out to Bloomberg’s marketing campaign … no phrase again but.
