Bloomberg "makes the DNC manipulate the elections" against Sanders

Bernie Sanders was his closet competitor in spending. He's not going anywhere, just wasting his money, but he's causing the DNC to manipulate the elections against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn't do for @CoryBooker and others. On Sunday night, Bloomberg and Trump will face off in ads airing during the Super Bowl. You do it again with Bernie, 2016.

Bloomberg has chosen to focus on ad purchases in the Super Tuesday states, rather than in the early primary and caucus states such as New Hampshire and Iowa.

Asked if he could "let [impeachment] go" and "see a path where you could work with the Democrats", Trump replied, in part, "I'm not sure they can do it". In fact, Bloomberg isn't covering himself (too boring to do), or other Dems. Several days before an expected acquittal by the Senate, Trump called the impeachment process a "very, very unfair process" and "all nonsense, the whole thing". "It's all the Fake News Media, and that's why nobody believes in them any more".

Trump's full interview was scheduled to air Sunday afternoon.

In a statement, DNC spokesperson Adrienne Watson defended eliminating the donor threshold, calling it "appropriate for the opening stages of the race, when candidates were building their organizations and there were no metrics available outside of polling to distinguish those making progress from those who weren't".

Numerous other members of the department or their campaigns have spoken out against the changed criteria.

"That's the definition of a rigged system".

Bloomberg will not qualify for that event because the guidelines still include the donor threshold.

There are signs his heavy advertising spending has begun to pay off. "Billionaires shouldn't be allowed to play by different rules-on the debate stage, in our democracy, or in our government", Sen.

But aides say that does not reflect the full amount that Bloomberg is prepared to spend in his fight for the presidency. "The Democratic Party should do everything possible to ensure a diverse candidate field".

"Now, at this late hour, to change the rules to accommodate a billionaire who wants to buy his way into the party would be unconscionable", Weaver said. Some candidates have argued he should be subjected to the same questioning they've endured for months, yet rival campaigns also are wary about validating Bloomberg as a legitimate threat.

Because he does not meet the individual donor threshold set out by the party, Bloomberg as it stands now will not be participating in the next debate of candidates, scheduled for February 7 in Manchester, N.H. This is sometimes done, but really not fair!
