    Bloomsburg is fairly moderate and even a bit right of center on healthcare, crime, and spending. He's essentially the best of all world's candidate with the lowest negatives. A wise endorsement for a celebrity not wishing to cause ire.

    so when he passes tobacco "sin tax" type stuff on Carbs, Meat, ect you're gonna be chill with it because Tim Duncan is getting paid to endorse him?

    I’m glad Tim and others speak out. Not a Bloomberg fan myself and surprised Tim is. But Tim does have a lot of money himself so it makes sense that he would want what Trump does without it being Trump (in terms of policy).

    I get the reason as it was close to Tim, but doing one good thing is not enough for me to vote for someone.

    He sucks IMO, but yeah. Heís a Republican piggy backing off the DNC because he knows he canít oppose Trump in his own party.

    Tim is the quintessential moderate. The Big Fundamental.

    Elizabeth Warren would be best (to quote Melania) but that's looking like a half-court shot at this point.

    Stay engaged Tim!

    I more see it as a character statement. He saw the guy hustling first hand and wanted to express that.

    My instincts say this too but thinking twice on it, Bloomberg helped him do what was most important to TD at the most desperate moment. TD didn't go into further details about Bloomberg's policy and etc... TD probably doesn't have time to be in full-time politics but this video is just a for tat. Seems like a wise trade off for TD. TD is doing good work in his hometown when he doesn't have to and using his resources. This coming from a Yang and Bernie fan.

    Doubt TD cares about politics like Poop but I see this as more of a thank you to Bloomberg for aiding his home islands after the hurricane

    geez, why can't every athlete agree with my political views? and damn those athletes for speaking out in public! don't they know that they're just minstrels (unless, of course, the agree with me).

    Donít normally do politics but a vote for Bernie in the primaries is a vote for Trump in the general election with the bonus of losing the house. Bernie is the woke generationsí Eugene McCarthy. Been there, done that.

    I think it's a solid choice.
    I normally lean Dems but Im not party loyal and I want the best choice and for me if Mike B can beat Trump (I doubt any of the other Dems/Rros can) might as well go that way.

    Policy-wise, I don't know that there would be much of a difference between Bloomberg and Trump. Tim Duncan endorsing Bloomberg wouldn't move my vote one way or the other. But it's nice Tim has decided who he'd vote for.

    So let's go with the tried and true method of the center right candidate running on "I'm not Trump" because it was so wildly successful in 2016?

    At least he didnít endorse Bernie tbh.

    I do follow politics and picnroll is right on. Bernie has zero chance of winning the general election electorally.

    Woke leftists have purity tested all the rational candidates out of the race, so ironically theyíve opened the door for Bloomberg who out of everybody left, probably fares best against Trump.

    Disagree. Not going to get into it - no point. People who think like this are already lost (IMO) so no point in trying to win people over. But for many reasons, disagree

    More than one person can beat Trump. How anyone, especially people of color, can have an issue with Trump and then support Bloomberg is beyond me, but I digress.
