Michael Bloomberg’s campaign is about to take a major hit courtesy of Donald J. Trump.
Numerous video and audio clips were uncovered with Bloomberg making blatantly racist remarks against the minority community and no amount of apologies or money is going to make this go away.
Blatant Profiling and Racism
Bloomberg has been on an apology tour since he announced his candidacy for supporting “stop and frisk” when he was the mayor of New York City and after.
As recently as 2015, Bloomberg fully supported the policy and there is audio to prove it.
The audio clip below is from a speech Bloomberg gave at the Aspen Institute in 2015, where he states, “And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”
All the money in the world can’t undo this

During that speech, it was reported by a local paper, the Aspen Times, that Bloomberg’s people told the Institute they did not want video footage of his appearance circulated.
Geez, I wonder why?!
Another comment made by Bloomberg during that appearance is even better, with Bloomberg openly supporting profiling.
He stated, “Ninety-five percent of murders- murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a 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 (inaudible). And that’s where the real crime is.
“You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”
Here is more audio from that speech…
Bloomberg had video of speech blocked.

Oh, but it gets even better.
In 2013, Bloomberg did a radio interview that would have made a KKK member proud.
Listen to this and tell me how people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are not calling this man a racist…

Bloomberg’s answer to this has been to say, “Today, I want you to know that I realize that back then I was wrong.
“And I’m sorry.”
This is not ancient history folks… this all happened within the last few years.
Bloomberg clearly holds these beliefs and is only shelving them because he wants to become president.
This is Robert Byrd all over again, the former KKK’s Exalted Cyclops who claimed he was reformed so he could become a U.S. Senator.
The same man, by the way, who Hillary proudly claimed to have mentored her.
Bloomberg’s candidacy should be over, period, with the republication of these tapes and any Democrat supporting him, especially a minority Democrat, is a hypocrite.
