What Can We Learn From Super Tuesday?
The DNC just executed one of the most brazen political checkmates of all time.
First, they kneecapped Bernie Sanders in 2016. He could have fought back. But instead, he kowtowed to Hillary Clinton. Perhaps he thought he could build momentum for four years and be all but guaranteed the nomination in 2020.
Turns out, he was a great big sucker.
Throughout the primary process, Bernie has looked like the likely favorite. But then the DNC stepped in.
Immediately before Super Tuesday, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar suddenly decided to drop out and inexplicably endorse Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren has performed no better than either of them. But nobody leaned on her to end her campaign, because her platform is identical to Bernie’s. She poaches voters from him.
That leaves us with Mike Bloomberg. The internet is awash with Bloomberg mockery (you should see Trump’s tweets!).
But Mini Mike didn’t waste $700 million. He purchased something much more valuable than the presidency. And you’ll only hear about it in this episode.
So listen now!
